Britney Spears concert chronology

Britney: Piece of Me is the first residency show by American singer Britney Spears, performed at The AXIS auditorium located in the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show had its opening night on December 27, 2013, and was well received by critics and fans alike. In 2015, Spears extended her contract with Planet Hollywood through 2017.

The show, which features many of Spears' hit songs, is performed 50 times per year and was named "Best of Las Vegas" in 2015.[1] After completing the original run of the show, Spears revealed that the extension would feature updates to the set list, choreography and costumes.[2] The revamped show, which features the tagline "Remixed. Reimagined. Still Iconic.", opened on February 13, 2016.[3] Spears also revealed that there would be more changes incorporated into the show throughout the year.[4]

Background and announcement[edit]

After completing the Femme Fatale Tour in December 2011, rumors circulated of Spears doing a stint in Las Vegas. It was initially believed Spears would be added to the roster for The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. In February 2013, it was reported that Planet Hollywood theatre was a front runner to host the show.[5] It was also believed the newly remodeled SLS Las Vegas, placed a venue bid as well. Local newspaper, Las Vegas Sun confirmed in May 2013, the venue was under renovations exclusively for Spears' show. The article speculated the residency would be announced in June 2013. Spears would begin rehearsals in late September, early October for the show.[6] Spears herself hinted at the residency during her interview with Shape, in May 2013. She stated, "The [Vegas] performances won’t be simple—they'll be a massive party from start to finish. And to pull this off, I have to be in top condition and running at full speed".[7]

The residency was confirmed on September 17, 2013, during an interview on Good Morning America. For the announcement, an elaborate stunt was staged in the desert surrounding Las Vegas (costing over $100,000 to produce). Over 1,000 Spears fans were gathered to perform a card routine, that reportedly could be seen from space. Spears arrived via helicopter and gave an interview to Good Morning America.[8] Spears' manager, Larry Rudolph, stated the show is not comparable to previous or current Las Vegas stints. He went on to say the show will focus on Spears's new material and not rely on her back catalogue. Spears will perform 50 shows per year, in 2014 and 2015. She is reportedly earning $15 million per year.[9]

On September 25, 2014, Spears confirmed on Good Morning Britain that she had extended her contract with The AXIS and Planet Hollywood, to continue the show for two additional years.[10] Despite this, on August 16, 2015, Spears told E! at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards that she had not yet made up her mind on whether or not she'd extend her residency. She said, "I'm not really sure. [...] I haven't made up my mind. I really love doing the show. It's a lot, a lot of fun but I'm kind of torn right now. I don't really know what I want to do."[11]

During her show on September 9, 2015, Spears confirmed that she would be extending her residency for an additional two years. She also revealed that the show would be revamped, with major changes in both the set list and choreography.[12]

The show is described to be "current" and have a "club-like atmosphere" to match the vibe of the casino. The venue closed in late October 2012 to undergo a $20 million renovation with lighting, sound and stage to accommodate the show. The stage was extended, reducing the venue capacity to 4,600. The show began on December 27, 2013 (just after the release of her eighth studio album). Tickets for the show went on sale September 20, 2013, with prices ranging from $59–$179, less than the typical $99–$250 for shows at Caesars Palace.[13] Commenting on show, Spears stated:

"We wanted the environment to be that way so people could come and have a good time and stand up and feel like they're in the show with me. I love Vegas. The energy here is really, really good. [...] We are going to have all the works now, water, rain, everything. Every time I do a show, I like to really bring it. I love to put on a show that will really entertain fans. [...] We want the feeling that fans will be in the show with me. We're going to have a cool set-up for them with a party vibe so they are really there with me. I'm very ready for this. I'm ready physically, mentally definitely. The show will be completely different from what everybody might be expecting. It's the best project I've ever tackled. It couldn’t be more exciting.[8][14]

Baz Halpin will serve as creative and stage director for the show.[14] Marco Morante is the costume designer.[15] The show is planned to run 90–100 minutes, featuring 24 of Spears hits alongside song from her forthcoming album. The set will also feature a 360-degree media wall, creating the illusion similar to a planetarium. One of the sets is known to incorporate several venus flytraps and another adopts a disco theme.[16] It will also feature 14 dancers and a four-piece band composed of Marc Delcore (Musical Director-Keyboards), Greg Delcore (Bass), Ernest LaRouche (Drums), Zach Comtois (Guitar). Seating for the theatre is reduce to 4,600 specifically for the show. There will be two dance areas, table-service seating and the stage will feature a runway shaped like an inverted anchor.[14] Rudolph went public stating Spears will not be miming the show. He goes on to say that Spears is undergoing vocal coaching to strengthen her voice. Adding, "There might be some numbers where she's full out dancing with a track underneath her, but there won't be any lip-syncing across the board on anything".[17] Days after tickets went on sales, figures were reported to be dismal, as only three of the 16 shows placed on sale were sold out. Many pointed to the live vs. miming dilemma as the main issue. Spears' manager indicated Caesars Entertainment only placed ten-percent of tickets for each show on sale. He also stated VIP seating for all 16 shows were sold out within hours.[18] The Huffington Post reported that by September 25, 70,242 out of 73,600 tickets had been sold.[19] In December 2013, Planet Hollywood executives revealed that the residency could be extended if it proved a success.[20] Spears officially announced the extension in September 2015.

Concert synopsis[edit]

2013–16: Original run[edit]

The show begins with a video of a young Spears dancing throughout her childhood home in Louisiana, dreaming of being a performer one day. In a flashback montage, clips of Spears' past performances are displayed. As this comes to an end, the curtains draw open and Spears and her dancers kick off the show with "Work Bitch". For this performance, Spears enters the stage in a globe-like cage from above. The show continues with a performance of "Womanizer". After this, Spears formally welcomes her audience to the show. She then asks the audience to count to three with her, leading into a performance of "3" and concluding the first segment of the show.

The next segment of the show began with a clip of Spears dressed as an angel, reading a poem to the audience. Spears then enters the stage harnessed in the air and dressed in angel wings, leading into a performance of "Everytime". During this performance, white flowers and petals resembling snow fall on the stage. After the third verse, the screens turn dark and a hard guitar riff begins. The dancers join Spears, who is dressed in a black leotard, for a medley of "...Baby One More Time" and "Oops!... I Did It Again", with a dance break and rope routine integrated into the segment.

Following this, another montage begins to play, featuring a mixture of Spears' videos throughout her career. This is followed by a performance of "Me Against the Music", where the wooden stage props and choreography are reminiscent of the original music video. After this, a medley of songs from the Blackout era begins, with performances of "Gimme More" and "Break the Ice". The medley then incorporates the song "Piece of Me" after a dance break, where Britney tries to escape her dancers, who are imitating the paparazzi throughout.

The next video interlude incorporates the song "Scream & Shout" and features Spears then goes on to perform "Boys" and, after a short speech to the audience, "Perfume".

"Get Naked (I Got a Plan)" (Interlude) introduces the fifth segment. It starts with Spears dancing on a pole to "I'm a Slave 4 U", surrounded by her female dancers that are playing in a fountain, squirting water on Spears. In the earlier shows, Spears sat on a throne surrounded by her female dancers, instead of the pole routine that was seen on later dates. After this, Spears performs "Freakshow", while she and her female dancers search for a "victim" willing to participate from the audience. Notable participants in this segment in the past have been Nicole Richie, A. J. McLean, Mario Lopez, Kathy Griffin, Tyson Beckford, Perez Hilton and Lance Bass. In this performance, Spears walks the participant while they wear a leash and spanks them with a whip, creating a BDSM scenario. After the song, she signs a T-shirt for the fan and thanks them for participating. Spears then performs "Do Somethin'", where she and her male dancers perform choreography with chairs.

The next interlude includes circus-themed music and performances by her backup dancers. Spears enters the stage in a large ring of fire, where she begins her performance of "Circus". She then performs "I Wanna Go", which include the use of a variety of mirrors. The mirrors include video screens of Spears and her dancers. A slowed down remix of "Lucky" is then performed, where Spears sits on a circus-themed prop.

The next stage intro includes jungle-themed elements and a wood and flower themed video-screen. A large tree appears on stage with Spears standing on it. She is surrounded by rain dropping from the stage ceiling. Spears then performs a slowed-down version of "Toxic" before jumping from the tree and momentarily flying above her audience. At this point, the original version of "Toxic" begins. After this, Spears performs "Stronger", and then "(You Drive Me) Crazy". During "Crazy", Spears asks the audience to thank her band and dancers. She then begins the final performance of "Till the World Ends", which features elements of "Work Bitch".

At the end of the show, Spears thanks the audience and exits the stage through the globe-like cage in which she entered. As the screens of the stage close, Spears' dancers exit the stage, while a display of fireworks concludes the show.

2016: Revamped show[edit]

On February 13, 2016, Spears debuted a newly revamped show, featuring a variety of costume, prop, set list and choreography changes. Spears revealed that even more changes would be integrated into the show throughout the course of the year, in conjunction with the impending release of her ninth studio album.[4] The updated show includes a new entrance during "Work Bitch", as well as performances of songs including "I Love Rock 'n' Roll", "Breathe on Me", "Touch of My Hand", and "If U Seek Amy". Further, a variety of updates to performances of existing songs from the set list were also made, including a new dance break during "Womanizer" and changes to the original performance of "Break the Ice". Spears also included a new dance segment in the show, where she and her dancers dance to three of her favorite Missy Elliott songs. In August 2016, the set list was revamped once more, this time preceding the release of Spears' album, Glory (2016).[21]


The show has received mostly positive reviews and has been a commercial success since opening.[22] According to Danielle Genet of ABC News, the opening show "drew rave reviews [...] for Spears' lavish, entertaining spectacle."[23] MTV News contributor Sophie Schillaci wrote that "Spears delivered on her signature style of larger-than-life production, blaring beats and rapid-fire dance moves, whirling through seven costume changes and even a couple of wig changes." Schillaci also commented that long-time fans would appreciate the concert as it is "more of a look backwards than forwards," and added that, while Spears may not sing completely live, "[the singer's] sweet voice shone through the backing, or we could hear her catching her breath between numbers." She concluded her review saying that "if you're looking for a powerhouse vocal performance in your Vegas entertainment, head over to The Coliseum for Celine Dion. But Britney fans will find no better show on the strip than 'Piece of Me'."[24] Marco della Cava of USA Today praised the concert, saying that Spears' mission "to turn a cavernous 7,000-seat amphitheater into a raging nightclub" was accomplished. Cava considered it a stand-out compared to other Las Vegas residencies "because of its production values."[25] Jennifer Whitehair of said the show became the top-searched topic on the website.[22]

Mikael Wood of Los Angeles Times commented on Spears' singing, writing that "the singer appeared to be lip-syncing for the majority of her performance"; however, he added that the production "has plenty to distract you from the vocal question."[26] Wood also thought that, while "'Piece of Me' hits most of the high points in Spears' songbook," songs like "Boys", "3", and "Do Somethin'" could "have been replaced with superior cuts from her recent albums."[26] Writing for Billboard, Keith Caulfield noted that "vast majority of the show was lip-synced, and only occasionally were any seemingly live vocals heard." The reviewer praised the use of live instrumentation from the four-piece band, on songs such as "Me Against the Music".[27] Rachel Maresca of New York Daily News noted that Spears "wowed the crowd" on the opening night, and added that the singer "pulled out all the stops to entertain her fans with plenty of theatrics on stage. She even gave the audience a taste of nostalgia by donning some her famous outfits from her most memorable past performances."[28] Laura Hertzfeld of Entertainment Weekly revealed that "[she'd] have loved to have seen more" of the concert as "it was the most connected to [Spears] as an artist that one can feel from the audience."[29]

Las Vegas Sun journalist Robin Leach said that Spears "proved that she’s still reigning royalty in the music world" with the residency, adding that the show is "an amazing and incredible accomplishment because in less than two hours, Britney changed the look of our Strip entertainment scene. For the first time, she single-handedly brought the spectacle of a touring arena show into a nightclub-like theater and pulled off the gamble with a flawless performance." Leach lauded the singer's physique, stating that "she hasn't looked this hot in ages and certainly doesn't need cosmetic makeup for her body, as critics claim."[30] Caryn Ganz of Rolling Stone wrote a mixed review, saying that, "viewed through a lens of diminished expectations [...]), Britney: Piece of Me is an entertaining tour through the 32-year-old star's nearly 15-year recording career. Compared to pop spectacles staged by Madonna and Beyoncé [...], however, the weaknesses that remain in Spears' live act are stark." Ganz was unimpressed by Spears' dancing abilities, saying that the singer was "reliant on arm movements." The reviewer wrote, however, that "the show featured flashes of greatness," with the performances of "Work Bitch", "...Baby One More Time", "(You Drive Me) Crazy", "Circus" and "Everytime" being the stand outs.[31]

In 2015, the revamped show received a cautious endorsement by Julie Bone of The Washington Post: "If you're even vaguely interested in pop music, dance and the art of performance, see 'Piece of Me.'" Bone praised the choreography and made-over playlist, which "wisely buries the last vestiges of the '90s pop princess's Mouseketeer roots." But the experience still feels hollow and detached, that review noted, considering fans' obvious devotion.[32]


The success of the show highlighted a shift in both the culture and demographics of the Las Vegas strip after its opening in December 2013.[33] Spears has since been credited as having played a vital role in the expansion of nightlife and attraction of younger crowds to the city.[34] It was also reported that the residency brought an additional $20 million in annual earnings for Planet Hollywood, allowing it to revitalize the property in terms of both finances and popularity.[35]

In 2014, Caesars Entertainment honored Spears with her own holiday, announcing that November 5 would officially be known as "Britney Day".[36][37] On November 5, 2014, a special ceremony was held in honor of Spears at The Linq Promenade, where she was presented with a Key to the City of Las Vegas by Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak and Planet Hollywood regional president David Hoenemeyer.[36]

Since the show's debut, other major performers, such as Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey, have followed in Spears' footsteps and accepted residency offers as well.[38] Like Spears, Lopez is also headlining at The AXIS, but for a shorter period of time.

Set list[edit]

  • "Alien" was performed during select shows throughout 2014 in place of either "Do Somethin'" or "Perfume".[40]

  • "Make Me..." and "Do You Wanna Come Over?" were added to the set list, beginning in August 2016,[21] permanetly replacing "Pretty Girls".[42]
  • On October 21, 2016, G-Eazy was a special guest performing "Make Me...". The two then performed "Me, Myself & I" live for the first time on the Piece of Me stage.[43]


The AXIS, the venue of the residency show, is located at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino (pictured).
