This tour follows Spears’ record-breaking, four-year headlining residency, Britney: Piece of Me at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, where the performer received rave reviews from both critics and fans alike since opening in December 2013. As the first contemporary superstar resident in the city, Spears and Caesars Entertainment pioneered the groundbreaking paradigm shift and revitalized the modern era of entertainment in Las Vegas in Planet Hollywood’s world-class theater. With over 250 shows, the record-setting residency sold out on a regular basis, generating more than $140 million gross revenue and selling nearly one million tickets.
Britney: Piece of Me was voted the “Best Resident Performer,” “Best Production Show,” “Best Bachelorette Party” and “Best Bachelor Party” by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Hollywood’s biggest names including Beyoncé, JAY-Z, Lady Gaga, Anna Kendrick, Nick Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Kirsten Dunst, Chloë Grace Moretz, Calvin Harris, Sia, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and Steven Tyler, among many others, have all attended the tour.
This exclusive US East Coast and Europe tour is the last time anybody will see the show. Initial demand for the Britney: Piece of Me tour, which will visit intimate venues on the US East Coast to truly capture the look and feel of the Las Vegas show, is overwhelming, with only limited tickets available. Elizabeth Arden, the exclusive global licensee of the award-winning Britney Spears fragrances since 2004, will be one of the sponsors of the Britney: Piece of Me tour. Pepsi is a proud partner of the US East Coast Britney: Piece of Me tour, continuing a relationship with Spears that has lasted for more than 15 years.
The Theater at MGM National Harbor offers an experience unlike any other in the region, providing fans the opportunity to see world-class entertainment in an intimate setting. The recently opened Theater features seven VIP suites and flexible seating designs, accommodating 3,000 guests for reserved-seating events and a little more than 4,000 for general admission shows.
