Oops! She did it again.
Like Elvis Presley before her, Britney Spears has parlayed a Las Vegas show into a revitalized public image and career. It's no surprise that she opens her show with the 2013 high-energy dance single "Work B*tch." Britney is 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! Levitating cage ball!), Britney has resurrected the over-the-top pop star fans 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."
The Axis Theater is a massive, 4,600-seat showroom that was remodeled for "Britney: Pieces of Me." Extended catwalk-style stages were added to let Britney and her dancers get closer to the audience. VIP tables and booths have been placed around these for the über fans wanting the ultimate up-close experience.
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, usually a celebrity in attendance such as Mario Lopez or Lance Bass, during her performance of "Freakshow." Another inspired moment showcases a 20-foot jump off a tree during a jungle-themed 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."
Will you be a slave 4 Britney?
