Legendary pop star Britney Spears is one of the most successful and celebrated entertainers in pop history, with nearly 150 million records sold worldwide. In the United States alone, she has sold more than 70 million albums, singles, and songs, according to Nielsen Music. Born in Mississippi and raised in Louisiana, Spears became a household name as a teenager when she released her first single “…Baby One More Time,” a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 smash and international hit that broke sales records with more than 20 million copies sold worldwide and is currently 14x platinum in the U.S.
Her musical career boasts countless awards and accolades, including six Billboard Music Awards and Billboard’s Millennium Award, which recognizes outstanding career achievements and influence in the music industry, as well as an American Music Award and the 2011 MTV Video Vanguard Award. So far, Spears has earned a total of six No. 1 debuting albums on the Billboard 200 chart and 22 Top 40 hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100 – four of which went to No. 1. She has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won for Best Dance Recording in 2005. Spears has also been creating fragrances for over 10 years and currently has 22 fragrances available in over 85 countries around the world.
This current tour follows Spears’ record-breaking, four-year headlining residency “Britney: Piece of Me” at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, where Britney received rave reviews from both critics and fans alike since opening in December of 2013. As the first contemporary superstar resident in the city, Spears and Caesars Entertainment pioneered the groundbreaking paradigm shift and revitalized the modern era of entertainment in Las Vegas in Planet Hollywood’s world-class theater. With over 250 shows, the record-setting residency was sold out on a regular basis, generating over $140 million gross revenue and selling over 930,000 tickets.
“Britney: Piece of Me” was voted the Best Resident Performer, Best Production Show, Best Bachelorette Party, and Best Bachelor Party by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Hollywood’s biggest names, such as Beyoncé, Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Anna Kendrick, Nick Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Kirsten Dunst, Chloë Grace Moretz, Calvin Harris, Sia, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, and Steven Tyler, have all attended “Piece of Me.”
This exclusive U.S. East Coast and Europe tour is the last time anybody will see the cutting-edge show. Initial demand for the “Britney: Piece of Me” tour, which will visit intimate venues on the East Coast to really capture the look and feel of the Las Vegas show, is overwhelming, with only limited tickets available. Elizabeth Arden, the exclusive global licensee of the award-winning Britney Spears fragrances since 2004, will be one of the sponsors of the “Piece of Me” tour. Pepsi is a proud partner of the East Coast tour, continuing a relationship with Spears that has lasted for more than 15 years.
