Contrary to other reports, Britney Spears will not be headlining a show in Las Vegas like Celine Dion. Celine Dion, Shania Twain, and Rod Stewart have all had show residencies at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and Spears was allegedly supposed to be next since she quit her judging spot on The X-Factor.
Rumor had it that Britney Spears was headed for a $100 million-a-year deal in Sin City, yet unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be true. PR for Caesars confirmed to Buzzfeed that they have acts booked for every weekend for months. Celine Dion, Shania Twain, and Elton John have contracts through 2014, and there are a bunch of non-residency shows happening at the Colosseum this year, like Jerry Seinfeld.
Caesars aside, Planet Hollywood is a no-go as well, since they just announced that some hypnotist named Marshall Sylver is starting an open-ended residency in March. Britney has announced however that she is working on a new album, so perhaps her focus will be strictly on that and then she’ll attempt a residency after the release. Who knows, but I think we can do without more lip-syncing for the time being.
Would you see a Britney Spears show in Vegas?
