Britney Spears’ Las Vegas Takeover!

January 2, 2014


Audiences showed up from all over to witness the Pop Princess’ opening night of her 2-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resorts & Casino. Among the thousands in the crowd were Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Selena Gomez who came to support Spears as well.


With 32 outfit changes and two 2 different wigs, Britney dazzled the stage while performing 23 of her chart-topping songs. Giving her fans a taste of the past, she even sported a few of her old outfits from her most memorable performances.

MTV dubbed her opening night as a “larger-than-life production” while USA Today noted it was an “artfully melded spectacle with stagecraft.” Nowadays, we’ll see critics boast about their values on lip-syncing but the truth of the matter is that these stars are entertainers, as well as they are singers. Giving a thrilling performance comes easier with some aids, but we’ll never doubt Britney’s skills for a second.


The set-list included hits like Toxic, Scream and Shout, Baby…One More Time and Womanizer while only two songs were pulled up from her most recent album, “Britney Jean.” She powered through these numbers in the most rehearsed and ready fashion, executing each move with the most grace and poise! It might dawn to you after her 18-20th performance of the night that in fact, most of her tracks are number-one hits and have been around for more than 10 years. Not many other pop stars can say they have been in the game for 15 years and remain so relevant to date.

And the ultimate highlight for a die-hard fan? In the middle of her set Brit picks out a lucky audience-member to bring on stage. With an S&M inspired number, she’ll tie you up in leather and one way or another, seduce you on stage!

If you’re not a Britney fan, we’ll suggest you swing by for a show during her residency anyway. The production of this show alone will serve as entertainment for the night- no prior musical knowledge needed.

All in all, this is one concert you must not miss out on. Get your tickets today for one of the dates during her 2-year Vegas residency at┬áPlanet Hollywood Resorts & Casino.
