There’s good news for those of us who missed out on catching Britney Spears during her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood, which ended on New Year’s Eve. Sources close to Spears say she’s not ready to leave Las Vegas just yet, and a new deal may be in the works to keep her there.
Multiple sources have now told Us Weekly that Spears has already signed a new deal to begin performing at the Las Vegas Park Theater inside the Monte Carlo Resort. That’s the same spot where Lady Gaga is set to kick off a residency beginning in December, and Ricky Martin, Cher and Bruno Mars already have recurring performances booked there, making it one star-studded venue to catch a show in. Obviously, the addition of a Spears residency would only enhance the theater’s existing lineup.
“They are really trying to compete with some of the more established venues in Las Vegas,” one source explained.
Another source dished that Spears is taking a little break from regular Vegas performances because her new deal isn’t set to start until 2019. But between now and when she takes the stage again, don’t expect her to go anywhere.
“They made the offer and she just couldn’t refuse. She loves Vegas!” another source said.
It’s no wonder Spears is loving the Vegas life. A residency gives her a stable and steady schedule, which is a great deal for the mom of two boys. “The schedule was perfect for her and her kids,” one source explained, “So why not continue?”
This is great news for Spears, but even better news for her fans. If you still haven’t seen Spears live, this means you have another chance. Get ready to check out Vegas flight prices!
