Her latest album may have underperformed, and her E! documentary might have brought in poor ratings, but Britney Spears is killing it where it counts: on stage. The pop superstar is almost one month into her two-year Las Vegas residency, and she’s already outselling all of Sin City’s heavy-hitters, including Rod Stewart, Elton John, and even Celine Dion!
Brit’s appeal has always been her ability to put on a great performance — even if she wasn’t always singing live. Vegas allows the chart-topper to pull out all the stops on stage, from wild sets and costumes to crazy choreography. In fact, Britney’s re-energized dancing is a big part of the good buzz she’s received since the residency launched on December 27, 2013.
That good press has definitely had it’s influence on sales! According to online ticket retailer StubHub, in just four short weeks, B’s already the third highest-selling Las Vegas residency ever, only behind Celine (whose residency began in 2011), and Sir Elton (who began in 2009). Do your thing, lady!
Okay, so she’s really only performed four shows (one per week) of over 100 scheduled in the next two years, but it’s definitely a great start. We can cautiously say that our Godney is back where she belongs.
