Since late December 2013, Britney Spears has ruled as the current queen of Las Vegas performances with her “Britney: Piece of Me” show. The ever-popular singer’s residency is held at the Axis within the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, and it was originally set to run through Feb. 28, 2015. However, recent developments indicate that she will indeed continue her residency for another two years through 2017, as she told Good Morning Britain.
The intention of the show is for it to feel like the entire audience is enjoying Vegas right alongside Spears herself, whose love for the Sin City is well documented. As such, she’s made it into quite the spectacle with a supreme party-like atmosphere featuring more than 10 dancers, a full band, a set list that typically runs longer than 20 songs. Those songs include many of her hits, of course, including “…Baby One More Time,” “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Toxic,” and all the others.
And then, of course, there is the other entertainment one can get into while in Sin City. In addition to the slew of other nightclubs, shows, and performances available, you can’t forget about the fact it’s the gambling capital of the U.S. While at Planet Hollywood alone, you can get into all sorts of gaming and quite possibly run into a celebrity while you’re at it. Like Ben Affleck, whose affinity for blackjack in particular is well known. Additionally, there are betting areas to put some cash down on a horse race or major sporting event along with your more typical slot and table game options.
For those of you unable to make it to Sin City or simply waiting on your trip there, you have a few options available right now that can make the wait a bit easier. First, you can handle the performance/music side of things by listening to Britney’s latest album, Britney Jean. Considering it’s her most recent release, you can bet safely on the fact she’ll be playing a fair amount of it during her shows. And then there’s the gaming part, which can be taken care of by visiting Betfair’s online casino. The site is home to a variety of games ranging from standard slots to more cinematic experiences including one Britney would surely love herself.
As any fan of hers knows full well, she looks to Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe as one of her idols—something she channeled in a recent look, per Daily Mail. Well, sure enough, there’s a Marilyn Monroe-based game on Betfair, along with a full-on live casino that aims to match the feeling of being in an actual casino in Vegas.
