Oops! She did it again... and we are definitely not complaining.
Like Elvis Presley before her, Britney Spears has parlayed a Las Vegas show into a revitalized public image and career. And it's no surprise that Brit opens her show with the 2013 high-energy dance single "Work B*tch" considering that she is undoubtedly working it.
With 14 dancers shaking their collective asses off, 24 songs (performed in part or full), plus high-end digital effects and a plethora of props (Giant tree! Wings! Levitating cage ball! Confetti!), Britney has resurrected the over-the-top pop star fans love and remember.
Ah yes, the fans. Don't expect a quietly respectful audience at this show. Hardcore fans will be singing and screaming along as Britney performs many of her hits, including "Oops!… I Did It Again," "…Baby One More Time," "Toxic," "Slave 4U" and "Circus" among many other favorites.
The Axis Theater is a massive, 4,600-seat showroom that was remodeled for "Britney: Pieces of Me" complete now with an extended catwalk-style stage that allows Britney and her dancers to get closer to the audience. VIP tables and booths have been placed around these for the über fans wanting the ultimate up-close experience and not to forget the general admission pit that is surrounded by the stage.... Britney can literally be at your fingertips.
Seats up close will offer amazing views of Britney's costumes, some which reference iconic looks from her performance history. Yes, a jewel encrusted bodysuit reminiscent of the "Toxic" video makes an appearance.
In one of the more visually stunning segments Britney performs "Everytime" suspended over the stage as a giant angel before revealing her sultry side in a black-strapped and feathered piece to perform "…Baby One More Time."
"Bad" Britney makes another appearance later, cracking a whip over a crawling audience member, which is usually a celebrity in attendance such as Mario Lopez, Lance Bass or Pauly D, during her performance of "Freakshow." Another inspired moment showcases a 20-foot jump off a tree during a jungle-themed, wet performance of "Toxic."
The show clocks in between 80 and 90 minutes depending on if you count the video montage lead-in and how long you and your fellow audience members dance in the aisle to final song "Till the World Ends."
Packed with exciting effects, signature dance moves, and extravagant sets, the only remaining question is, will you be a slave 4 Britney?
