Oops…it looks like Britney Spears is gonna do it again! The pop princess, 36, is reportedly heading back to Las Vegas with a new residency in 2019. According to Us Weekly, Britney has signed a deal to perform at the Monte Carlo’s Park Theater.
“They made the offer and she just couldn’t refuse. She loves Vegas!” a source told the publication, while another insider said that the Monte Carlo (where Lady Gaga will begin a 74-date residency this December) is “trying to compete with some of the more established venues in Las Vegas.”
A source explained that the “Slumber Party” songstress has fallen in love with the perks of being a Sin City headliner. Because she gets to stay in one place for extended periods, Britney — whose home base is LA — is able to spend plenty of time with her sons, Sean Preston, 12, and Jayden James, 11, whom she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline. “The schedule was perfect for her and her kids,” said a source, “so why not continue?”
Britney ended her pioneering, four-year Piece of Me residency on New Year’s Eve after nearly 250 shows, which raked in more than $100 million in ticket sales. Us Weekly reports that her last performance at Planet Hollywood “was emotional.” After making a tearful toast with one of her biggest fans, the Grammy winner apparently had a hard time keeping it together. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the house,” said a source.
Britney’s longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, previously revealed to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that his superstar client could very well return to the desert. “We are done with this show, and our next move is undecided. We are still talking with Caesars Entertainment and other interested parties in Las Vegas,” Larry, 54 — who also manages Miley Cyrus — said last April. “Anything is possible. We have made zero decisions. We expect a lot of interest from all parties. Britney basically sells out every show, and she loves Las Vegas, she loves performing in Vegas, and Vegas is a possibility going forward.”
