I must confess… that I still believe… that Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” holds its own 18 years later. You know the lyrics are still dancing through your head like Britney Spears danced down the high school hallway in her iconic music video that led to a million Halloween costumes. Admit it; you hunted for the perfect white button down to tie in a knot to show off your tan abs… wait, real life high schoolers don’t always dance through their school day in unison!?
If you think that video, plus all the other times Britney left her permanent stamp on pop culture, are her peak, then think again. Her “Britney: Piece of Me” residency at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood is a sparkly, over-the-top-in-all-the-best-ways dancefest guaranteed to have you on your feet throughout its twenty Top 10 hits. The diva who redefined the Vegas-style pop star residency announced her final shows of this award-winning production. Catch Brit Brit in the experience awarded “Best Overall Show” and “Best Bachelorette Party” by readers of the “Las Vegas Review-Journal” in 2015 and “Best Resident Performer” in 2016. She’ll take her final bow December 31, 2017. Imagine what an insane New Year’s Eve it will be.
Get your tickets now to see the princess of pop in all her Vegas glory. If you’ve caught the show before you know you need to come dance along “one more time” before it’s gone. Here are our fave six reasons why you should see Britney Spears in Vegas:
1. THE STAGING IS BEYOND AMAZING
The expansive wall of video screens makes the perfect backdrop for the high-energy dance numbers and unexpected use of props. It’s like you’re inside a music video shoot rather than simply watching a performance.
2. YOU NEVER KNOW WHO BRITNEY WILL BRING ON STAGE
You could be the lucky fan Britney selects to join her “Freakshow.” Imagine what a snap story you could post with that footage!
3. YOU’LL FEEL LIKE A CELEBRITY
Since the show’s at Planet Hollywood, obviously you’ll feel the celebrity vibe. The property has gotten a modern and edgy makeover but still retains its classic vibe of exclusivity reserved for superstars. You never know who will show up at Britney’s show because you better believe Mario Lopez and Tyson Beckford know every word to “I’m a Slave 4 U” just like you do. They’re just some of the celebrity guests seen at Britney’s residency since it began in the end of 2013. She’s pulled them on stage along with Lance Bass, Perez Hilton, Kathy Griffin and most recently BSB’s Howie Dorough. The people watching opportunities reach the upper echelon inside The AXIS.
4. THE COSTUMES PUT THE EDGE IN VEGAS COUTURE
Gorgeous jewel-crusted leotards with plunging necklines are perhaps on the tame side of the spectrum when compared to the strappy and studded, mesh and leather, lacy cutout-covered works of art Britney grinds and spins in at The AXIS.
5. IT’S THE ULTIMATE BACHELORETTE / BACHELOR NIGHT
Imagine a night of rocking your hottest “Toxic” dance moves with your best girls. Make the whole weekend Britney themed and have everyone dress up in one of her signature music video looks. Tiaras and feather boas are passé compared to a red latex catsuit. Now that’s Vegas.
Guys, we know you love dancing to Britney and can sing every word of her hits too. Go ahead and revisit your adolescent crush once more before tying the knot.
6. THIS IS THE BIGGEST PARTY ON THE STRIP
The Ringling Bro. Circus may be closing but Britney’s “Circus” rages on in all its outrageous splendor. Here the burning ring of fire isn’t nearly as hot as the sexy dancers hopping through it, the high energy hits will have you hopping and you’ll be singing along to your fave songs with thousands of other fans. This is the night you’ll remember in Vegas.
