Celebrity has-beens never die, they just fade away in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is getting its newest pop fixture.
Britney Spears begins her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Friday, just in time to catch the town’s massive New Year’s Eve crowds.
The Grammy-winning singer will perform 50 shows each in 2014 and 2015. Casino executives say the gig may be extended if it proves a success.
Spears is expected to lip-sync to her biggest hits, including “Oops. I Did It Again,” ”…Baby One More Time” and “Toxic.”
She’s among the youngest stars to have settled down to quasi-retirement in Las Vegas. Other successful Strip headliners include Celine Dion and Elton John.
The show takes place in an intimate theater with nightclub touches, including table and bottle service. Tickets range from $59 to $179.
