Planet Hollywood Feeling The Britney Spears Effect To The Tune Of $20 Million

Britney Spears "Piece of Me"

Britney Spears “Piece of Me”

If you’ve been reading any of my work over the past few years you know that I like Britney Spears a bit too much. We go back to the swamps of New Jersey just like my ill-fated love for the New York Jets.

Anyway, I loved the “Piece of Me” show at Planet Hollywood (see my review on Vegas Chatter) and I’m happy to see it succeed. Despite the avalanche of negative reviews the shows are packed and Britney Spears is making bank for Planet Hollywood.

she’s boosted the hotel-casino’s annual operating earnings by about $20 million. Now we understand why the first run of her contract ending next year was renewed for an additional two years.

Having seen Britney a couple of times before “Piece of Me” I knew not to expect much (if any) singing and lazy dancing. I did expect to here some awesome JAMS (here’s a link to the original setlist on spotify that I’m listening to right now).

I didn’t expect such a great audio-visual experience at the Axis Theater. It really is a great theater that would be great for a band with progressive instrumentation like Tool.

I passed up an opportunity to see Britney a couple of weeks ago because I know the show isn’t going anywhere. I will definitely see “Piece of Me”, or a new version of the show, but probably won’t drop $100+ for the show that’s a live version of that spotify playlist.
