It sounds like not as many people want a piece of Britney as were anticipated. The pop star’s upcoming Las Vegas residency show at Planet Hollywood has been highly buzzed about, with an extravagant announcement on Good Morning America (which came with a $100,000 price tag). However, Radar Online reports that sales for “Britney: Piece of Me” have not been on pace with expectations.
“After spending hundreds of thousands on [promotion], they expected to instantly sell out all of the first 16 shows, but they didn’t come close!” an insider tells Radar. In fact, the source continues to say only three of those dates are sell-outs, which is considered to be a “disaster”, especially when compared to other A-list residencies. For example, at this point in their sales histories, Celine Dion and Shania Twain had sold out their first block of shows.
“Britney: Piece of Me” is committed for over 50 shows in its 4,500-seat venue, so naturally its investors hope the current sales aren’t a trend. Personally, we’re flabbergasted. If we were independently wealthy, we’d be there daily and nightly!
Do you think Britney’s show will eventually gather steam, or is it destined to be a flop?
