Pop lovers who were worried that they would miss seeing Britney Spears perform her Britney: Piece of Me show in Las Vegas can breath a sigh of relief as Ms Spears has extended her residency.

The ‘Toxic’ singer will now be performing at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, which is located in the heart of the famous Sin City Strip, until 2017, rather than the original end date of 28 February 2015.

Britney: Piece of Me takes place inside The Axis Powered by Monster 4,500 seat theatre, which also houses the world’s largest indoor projection screen. It offers an astounding theatrical experience that compliments Ms Spears’ performance.

The Axis Powered by Monster theatre will transform into a nightclub-esque venue as Ms Spears keeps the crowds entertained with her high-energy performance that includes her delivering songs while sat in a ring of fire, flying across the stage and dancing in front of multiple mirrors.

Fans of the star can sing and dance along to the chart topping songs that have firmly cemented Ms Spears’ title of Pop Princess since she first burst onto the music scene in 1999 with the infectious ‘Baby One More Time’. Expect to hear renditions of other hits such as ‘Ooops...I did it again’, ‘Piece of Me’, ‘Slave 4 U’ and ‘Circus’, to name but a few, in this electrifying performance.

Ms Spears appeared to confirm the news during an interview with Good Morning Britain after Richard Arnold asked her about the extension of her residency, to which she said she was “very excited”.

Elaborating on her decision to stay in Sin City for a further two years, she said : “Being based in Vegas and having one show that you just keep going back to, the consistency of that is really grounding and really cool.”

Britney: Piece of Me has been storming the Las Vegas strip since December 2013, and has so far seen thousands of fans from all over the world head to Nevada in a bid to see the superstar.ADNFCR-408-ID-801752038-ADNFCR
