In 2014, she did a total of 58 shows at the venue, garnering more than 234,000 viewers in that year alone.
2016 saw the continuation of Britney: Piece Of Me that was Remixed & Reimagined and included live performances from songs released from her latest album, Glory. This is the last year that Britney will be performing live in Vegas. Britney: Piece Of Me has nine more shows in March and April, and another nine shows that will take place in May. The grand finale to the show will be at the Axis in Las Vegas on May 20, 2017.
Britney Spears can be considered as one of pop’s most mainstream and successful artists. Since her debut on the pop scene at the age of 17, her life has been a public circus, as portrayed in her songs about media attention, but has managed to bounce back several times in the most epic way.
