Our first Vegas DeLuxe story on the possibility of a Britney Spears residency in Las Vegas was posted Jan. 10 ahead of all other reports that followed. This morning, a spokesman for Caesars Entertainment has confirmed the swirling, monthlong rumors:

“Caesars Entertainment is continuously working to redefine the Las Vegas entertainment landscape. As a pioneer of the modern Las Vegas headlining residency model, Caesars Entertainment regularly engages in conversations with today’s top artists to perform at any number of our Las Vegas resorts.

“We can now confirm the company is actively engaged in discussions with Britney Spears’ representatives regarding a potential headlining residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. No further statement will be made at this time.”

I’m reliably told that Caesars Entertainment is not the only Las Vegas hotel group in talks with Britney’s agents and management. I cannot confirm that the Planet Hollywood venue would be the Base Entertainment-managed PH Live theater or that Britney could wind up in a CeeLo Green-type show that would be late night in the Peepshow Theater. CeeLo opens his residency show “Loberace” on Feb. 27.

Earlier this week, Britney’s manager Larry Rudolph said: “Any deal for Vegas is not yet signed and is still subject to negotiations, but I feel strongly we are very close and it will happen.”

If there aren’t any last-minute delays, I’m reliably told the show with Britney will be before the end of this year, but no dates have yet been set. I’m also told that Britney’s new album has to be completed and released first.

  1. She can surely do better than the PH Hollywood Theater. Even Bette Midler got the Colosseum.

  2. I'm at a loss as to why people would pay good money to watch somebody lip synch.

  3. I think it would be good for Planet Hollywood and good for her career. If the show does not take off quickly it will be cancelled real fast.

  4. maybe Penn and teller can add her to their act make her disappear. Of course she supported George Bush.
