As the first contemporary superstar resident in the city, Britney pioneered the groundbreaking paradigm shift and revitalized the modern era of entertainment in Las Vegas. Since opening December 27, 2013, “Britney: Piece of Me” has received rave reviews from both critics and fans alike, with the show being voted the “Best Overall Show” and “Best Bachelorette Party” by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2015 and “Best Resident Performer” in 2016. The record-setting show is sold out on a regular basis and as of January 2017, the show has grossed over $100 million in ticket sales. The wildly popular show has also drawn the attention of some of Hollywood’s biggest names, such as Beyoncé, Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Anna Kendrick, Nick Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Kirsten Dunst, Chloë Grace Moretz, Calvin Harris and Steven Tyler.
"As I prepare to say goodbye to “Piece of Me,” I had no idea how magical this experience would be. Having my fans from around the world come see my show has been amazing. I love Las Vegas and will miss performing this show," said Britney Spears.
Over 700,000 fans have experienced “Britney: Piece of Me” since it opened in The AXIS, which was designed exclusively for Britney’s show. With a nod to the growing importance of nightlife to the Las Vegas visitor experience, The AXIS is the city’s first true nexus of nightlife and live entertainment both in its design and service model. The recent theater redesign features an innovative dance floor and VIP table seating concept that allows guests nightclub-style service in a theater setting. As the show has evolved through the years, its status as one of the hottest tickets in Las Vegas has been a constant.
“When we first announced “Britney: Piece of Me” four years ago, we were certain that Britney’s residency would revolutionize the entertainment landscape in Las Vegas, and are thrilled at how successful the show has been,” said Jason Gastwirth, Caesars Entertainment senior vice president of marketing and entertainment. “Caesars Entertainment has always led the evolution of Las Vegas entertainment. Britney’s emergence in this market paved the way for other artists to make Las Vegas their home and as a result, the top entertainment destination in the world. We look forward to working together with Britney again in the future.”
“Being named the best show in Las Vegas, among other accolades, Britney’s residency marked a new era of entertainment as the city’s first pop music resident artist,” added David Hoenemeyer, regional president of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “We are delighted that Britney has called The AXIS at Planet Hollywood home for the last four years.”
