Britney brings the circus to her two-year series of Vegas shows
BRITNEY Spears has begun her two-year-long set of shows in Las Vegas with a performance that looks strikingly like the Cirque du Soleil productions found elsewhere on the Strip.
The debut of Spears's long-term casino gig last night kept an audience of about 4,500 on their feet for 90 minutes.
The spectacle - called Britney: Pieces of Me - included acrobatics, a ring of fire, confetti, a live band, frenetic costume changes and a frequently airborne Spears.
Spears, 32, has signed on to perform 50 shows each in 2014 and 2015 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
