Pop icon Britney Spears has announced the end of her four year-long residency at The Axis at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
“As I prepare to say goodbye to Piece of Me, I had no idea how magical this experience would be,” the singer said in a press release announcing her departure. “Having my fans from around the world come see my show has been amazing. I love Las Vegas and will miss performing this show.”
The successful “Piece of Me” residency, which launched in 2013, is largely credited with reviving Spears’ career after a very public mental breakdown in 2007. It will come to close on New Year’s Eve this year.
Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph hinted that the singer might be considering future residencies at different venues. “We could have it at the needle on the top of the Stratosphere, and do a bungee jump afterward,” Rudolph told The Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We expect a lot of interest from all parties. Britney basically sells out every show.”
Rudolph also mentioned that Spears may spend her newfound time off recording a follow up to Glory, her latest studio album released in 2016.
Final “Piece of Me” Dates:
9/3, 10/11, 10/13, 10/14, 10/18, 10/20, 10/21, 10/25, 10/27, 10/28, 11/1, 11/3, 11/4, 12/19, 12/27, 12/28, 12/30, 12/31
