I just realised this is a bigger theatre than POM, it seats 5,200 instead of the 4,000 at planet Hollywood

Britney will be performing "Domination" for three years in Vegas.

That's the "plan" :D :lol:

Damn, she should have released an album first, trying to get a few more hits under her belt (she still has it in her)

I mean, she's an icon, a legend and I do love her but isn't that decision a bit risky? Dunno if tickets will be sold that "easily"... or maybe she's going to have massive breaks in between so that she can rest but also release an album or two?

Not the ‘she needs hits’ talk again :lol: Y’all should know by now that she doesn’t care about getting hits anymore. She’s happy making the music she likes and performing regularly.

If she wants to perform three years in the same location, she will need a few new songs - hopefully hits - to promote it a bit, no? She doesn't need them but they wouldn't hurt either. Ticket sales are not as good as they could be (not saying they are bad like what the stupid press wanted to tell us). I just hope Team Britney has a good plan to promote the whole new residency.. best way to do it is to release new music as well.. just saying.
I think it's way too soon to come up with a show which should be dragged for 3 years.

If she's really happy with that decision, it might be fun for her and I'm also happy for her but I really think it's quite a risky move for the hotel for making a contract for three (!) years.

Britney needs to elevate her performances. She has been working hard lately but it has to translate well. No one thought that J.Lo would kill it but she did considering she is a lot older than Britney and has less hit songs.

I mean, Britney had more signature hit songs and albums than J.Lo.

J Lo probably has more hits singles in the U.S over Britney yes?

Anywhere else in the world it would go the other way but J Lo did very well single wise in the U.S where their residencies are.

I love J.Lo but she didn't have her first full decade packed with hits. She was a hit or miss starting from 2005.

J.Lo was more of a radio darling than Britney back in the early days, the thing is that J.Lo (and some other artists from that time) deflated a lot on the Hot 100 after the 3rd album causing her hits rate to decrease big time by mid-00s onwards, With Britney it was the exact opposite as she actually got stronger on the Hot 100 after her 3rd album and by late 00s / early 10s she was at her peak singles-wise in the US, all favoured by the digital market but she was also getting Top 10 Pop radio hits with nearly every song she was releasing between 2008-2011.

Her dad almost died, according to The Sun.

I estimate she's grossed at least $15 million from the ticket sales she's sold thus far in Vegas, I get that the professional side of things is the lesser consideration here, but I wonder if she'll re-plan them at a later date.

Straight out of her official Instagram ...

Apparently Britney's father is severely ill and having a delicate bad time ...

britneyspears
I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com. I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always

Hopefully she can get the show up and running again, but family does take priority.

She is a Vegas staple.
