NEW YORK – After months of rumors and hint-dropping, pop icon Britney Spears revealed what she called her (not-so-)secret news – she’s heading to Las Vegas.
The 31-year-old pop star confirmed a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday. Britney: Piece of Me will debut Dec. 27, just in time for Las Vegas’ massive New Year’s crowds. Spears announced 16 dates, but she will perform 50 shows each in 2014 and 2015.
The Grammy-winning singer’s confirmation about the residency comes after much online speculation, including some of her own Vegas-themed tweets. She said in an interview on GMA that the show will feature her greatest hits as well as new material.
I’m definitely ready, she said, adding that she’s training five hours each day.
Tickets for Britney: Piece of Me go on sale Friday. Prices range from $59 to $179.
She released a new song, Work Bitch, this week. It’s from her untitled eighth album, due Dec. 3.
