Britney Spears and I go way back. I first saw Britney at the Meadowlands in New Jersey. It was fun be Britney Spears and I didn’t have a special connection until I saw her at Rain at Palms in Las Vegas. Brit and I had a special connection from that night moving forward.

It was an amazing night that I barely remember. The two memories I have of that night were my friend kissing or being kissed on the cheek by Paris Hilton and Britney Spears’ 3 song performance that I was just a few feet away from. It may have been the vodka (it probably was) but something happened.

Now, Britney Spears is coming to Las Vegas for a 48 show per year residency at Planet Hollywood for the next two years.

Britney Spears will be raking in HUGE STACKS in Vegas this winter — a ridiculous $310,000 per show … nearly $15 million per year — but she still doesn’t hold a candle to Celine Dion.

TMZ is privy to the financial details of Britney’s deal.  The 2-year contract calls for 48 shows a year at Planet Hollywood.   According to the contract, Britney will earn $310,000 per show. 

TMZ also looks deeper into the contract.

Britney’s cut of the gate is huge — projected sales per show are $508,514, meaning Brit will be snagging more than 60%.

If the projected gate for the show is correct and the 4,500 seats that the PH Theater now has (according to Johnny Kats) is correct then simple math says that the average ticket price to see Britney Spears at Planet Hollywood will be $113.

The price to see Britney Spears at Planet Hollywood is a little high but it’s not outlandish given today’s ticket prices for shows on the Vegas Strip. For comparison tickets to see Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at The Venetian begin at $187.50 on Vegas.com while tickets to see Celine Dion at Caesars Palace begin at $102.

I’m pretty sure the only way I’ll see this Britney show is if someone gives me a free ticket but you never know. This is Las Vegas and things happen. I’m sure I’ll love the show because I love me some Britney but her new song is a steaming pile of dog crap. Maybe I’m just old. Get off my lawn. Bitch.

Rumor: Britney Spears Making Vegas Her New Home?

Norm Clarke reported on a rumor likely to be true that Britney Spears will be following Motley Crue with a multi-week residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Britney Spears’ first multiweek deal as a Las Vegas resident headliner is being discussed with the Hard Rock Hotel.

Vegas Confidential has learned Hard Rock President and Chief Operating Officer Paul Pusateri and Spears’ manager, Larry Rudolph, have been talking.

Britney Spears isn’t quite rock music, but does it really matter any more? The theme’s of the hotels in Las Vegas, don’t really matter anymore. For years the Hard Rock has been playing non-rock music.

I’ve had a thing for Britney for years (you may know that already) and I hope this happens. My first run in with Britney was at Rain at Palms waaaaaaay back in the day when she did a few short 3 song sets preparing for a tour. My friends and I also met Paris Hilton that night. There may have been a Dennis Rodman sighting that night, but it may have been John Sally. Things got a little fuzzy.

Later, my friends and I saw her in New Jersey for the Onyx Hotel Tour. We tailgated for hours listening to Metallica and Slayer. It was awesome.

Britney had a breakdown shortly thereafter and was difficult to watch. The soft spot in my heart sunk. Watching her gaze without, seemingly, knowing where she was looking wasn’t easy to watch. In recent year her performances have been more sad than anything else.

I’m hoping that if this Hard Rock residency happens and is better than Motley Crue’s. I’m also hoping that it brings her closer to the performer I enjoyed back in the day. Watch the intro to the concert I saw (then “Toxic“) and tell me it isn’t awesome.
