'Piece of Me' is still slaying everyone, with 92% of tickets sold on the most recent leg of Britney's Vegas show.

By Aaron Butterfield:

There's a lot of buzz about Vegas shows just recently. Jennifer Lopez has been sniffing around the strip, performing the suspiciously titled "The Best Is Yet To Come" at The Colosseum on NYE; Mariah Carey is said to be eyeing up a spot in the city of sin too. There's talk of who'd be better suited, and why this will or won't be a good career move for either of the divas but let's be real - the fact that they're considering it at all is thanks to Miss American Dream herself. In the last year, Britney blazed a trail for young, working artists to perform on Vegas stages and it turns out she's still making some serious cash with her residency.

See just how much dough she raked in on the last leg of 2014:

Britney's four shows at the end of December (the 27th, 28th, 30th and 31st) raked in massive gross sales of $2,799,641 and selling 16,895 of a possible 18,221 tickets, she ended the month 92% sold out. It's interesting to note too that Britney pulled in a whopping $700,000 per performance, in comparison J Lo managed a stellar, but much less impressive, $410,000.

Having already performed 57 shows in the year beforehand, these kind of figures are no mean feat. After the first two legs of the show sold out, critics were quick to claim that her sales represented the novelty of her act and that they'd soon dip. Well here we are, 12 months later, the novelty's worn off, and the Queen of hair-flips and watermelon bubblegum is still coming out on top.

The show picks up again this month, and it seems like she may be making changes to the setlist (I mean at this point she could be rehearsing for another Twister ad for all I know, but it's nice to dream) so we'll be waiting to see how well a revamped (?) 'Piece of Me' sells into the new year.

But if I know Britney (which I suppose I don't but, again, don't kill my dreams) I would imagine her sales reign will carry on well into 2015, especially with a new single promised this side of the summer and an album sure to follow. ('Britney Jean' who?)

And if some new girls show up on the block, we'll be waiting to see who's the last one standing. But I know where my money is.

Who are YOU betting on?

This really puts the sales 'dip' in perspective - glad to see Godney's still slaying and I reckon the new album will be good promo wink.gif.

To be fair to her, she's probably making more money than ever at the moment.

I won't be able to go unless she extends into 2016 (fingers crossed).

And Aly I believe you are right. Minus the Britney era. She was ranked the most powerful woman in the world 2001-2002. And she raked in over 11 million on the pepsi adverts alone.

I really hope I manage to somehow go in 2016. It's probably the least feasible thing ever for me personally but there's no harm in trying.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON!



The show must go on!

During the opening number of her Piece Of Me show on Wednesday, Britney told the audience to "bare with her" because she's "a little bit under the weather."

Some fans think it's unprofessional for Brit Brit to tell ticket purchasers that, but some fans also live in mommy and daddy's basement. It's rare Britney goes off script, even if it's just a quick blurb about how she's feeling, so if the Queen wants to tell you she's ill, Godammit you pray you catch it!

Be lucky she didn't cancel altogether.
