PITBULL TO JOIN BRITNEY ON EUROPE LEG OF EXCLUSIVE TOUR
For the first and only time, “Britney: Piece of Me” will visit East Coast US and Europe for a very limited engagement for fans that were not able to see the show in Las Vegas.
Britney has today also announced that Grammy-Award winning, multi-platinum selling artist Pitbull will be joining her for the European dates on the exclusive run.
This tour follows Britney’s record-breaking, four-year headlining residency, “Britney: Piece of Me” at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, where Britney received rave reviews from both critics and fans alike since opening in Dec. 2013. As the first contemporary superstar resident in the city, Britney and Caesars Entertainment pioneered the groundbreaking paradigm shift and revitalized the modern era of entertainment in Las Vegas in Planet Hollywood’s world-class theatre. With over 250 shows, the record-setting residency was sold out on a regular basis, generating over $140 million gross revenue and selling nearly 1 million tickets.
“Britney: Piece of Me” was voted the “Best Resident Performer,” “Best Production Show,” “Best Bachelorette Party” and “Best Bachelor Party” by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Hollywood’s biggest names, such as; Beyoncé, Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Anna Kendrick, Nick Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Kirsten Dunst, Chloë Grace Moretz, Calvin Harris, Sia, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and Steven Tyler have all attended “Piece of Me.”
This exclusive US East Coast and Europe tour is the last time anybody will see the show. Initial demand for the “Britney: Piece of Me” tour, which will visit intimate venues on the US East Coast to really capture the look and feel of the Las Vegas show, is overwhelming, with only limited tickets available. Elizabeth Arden, the exclusive global licensee of the award-winning Britney Spears fragrances since 2004, will be one of the sponsors of the “Britney: Piece of Me” tour. Pepsi is a proud partner of the US East Coast “Piece of Me” tour, continuing a relationship with Britney that has lasted for more than 15 years.
