Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino welcomed pop princess Britney Spears with open arms Tuesday, a prelude to her 2-year residency that will kick off on Dec. 27.
Timed to coincide with her 32nd birthday and the release of her much-anticipated album Britney Jean, she arrived with great fanfare in a restored 1958 Chevy Impala convertible with eight black SUVs as escorts.
Spears was rocking a black cocktail dress featuring a rhinestone top as she clutched an armload of roses. When she was handed a microphone, she told the crowd, “This is my city now so I can’t wait to see you guys opening night.”
Her show, ‘Piece Of Me,’ will have a club-like atmosphere in an auditorium that recently underwent a $20 million renovation with lighting, sound and an extended stage to accommodate her action packed show. The 4,600 person capacity extravaganza will run 90-100 minutes and feature 21 of Spears hits plus songs from her new album.
Britney revealed, “We’re going to have water, rain, everything. The show will be completely different from what everybody might be expecting. It’s the best project I’ve ever tackled. It couldn’t be more exciting.”
