‘Piece of Me’: New Data Denies Claim That Britney Spears Vegas Run More Successful Than Elton John or Celine Dion’s

Piece of poo would be a more accurate description of recent reports that have indicated Britney Spears’ Vegas residency ‘Piece of Me’ has out-performed preceding pop legends Celine Dion and Elton John‘s similar runs in just a matter of days.

Indeed, the miscalculations, misestimations, and mishaps that have fueled media chronicles that crowned the pop princess’s Vegas showing the third-best run in history have proven themselves premature.  Moreover, those reports were only analyzing a portion of data and not the big picture.

Need more?  You know where to find it:


“That information is based entirely on data from ticket-reseller StubHub and doesn’t take into account tickets purchased by other outlets. StubHub hasn’t revealed its exact sales figures for Britney, but the company did say that 14 percent of all its tickets sold this year were for Spears’s Feb. 14 show. Again, those figures are based only on StubHub’s sales and account for just a fraction of the actual market place.”

Billboard BoxScore Vegas Box Office Performance (Britney Spears vs. Celine Dion vs. Elton John):

Britney Spears

  • First four shows all sold out
  • Total attendance of 17,803
  • Gross of $2,470,021 or an average of 4,450 tickets and $617,505 gross per show.

Elton John

  • Sold out all 14 shows of its 7th leg
  • Sold 57,889 tickets and pulled in $8,930,160 for an average of 4,134 tickets and $637,868 gross per show.

Celine Dion

  • Celine Dion’s four shows at Caesars Palace (Dec. 30-Jan. 5) all sold out
  • Sold 17,004 tickets and grossing $2,869,070 — an average of 4,251 tickets and $717,267 in sales per show.


The aforementioned data is by no means intended to discredit what the ‘Lucky’ songstress has accomplished with her Vegas run.  At the rate it is going, it does show promise of coming the top-seller in Vegas history.  But, contrary to recent reports, it’s not there yet.

Initially met with skepticism given her age and poor performance skills over the last half-decade, the run has proven itself lucrative and may serve to reignite public interest after the disappointing performance of her 8th studio album ‘Britney Jean’.

‘Work B*tch’ gave us some hope that Spears does still have some semblance of “it”.  We’re just hoping that this Vegas run helps her find the rest of it…wherever she left it.

    But girl who is really wasting their money on her shows in the first place?

  2. King13 January 25, 2014

    This blog literally does everything they can to shade Britney.

  3. Lovebird January 26, 2014

    Well at least she’s making bank.

  4. tits mcgee January 26, 2014

    No one cares about these fugazi numbers. Brit is doing ok with this residency, but the reach by one ticket outlet is ridiculous.

  5. KING RIH January 26, 2014

    Its time to take this old horse out to the woodshed.

    grab the shotgun.

    We had high hopes after Femme Fatale. Now, GURL BYE

    Really? “Piece of poo?” Honestly, I don’t even like Britney, but this write-up sounds so childish.

  7. FutureCIARA January 26, 2014

    I knew they were inflating those numbers…. Perez Hilton dot com to name an exact source. He carried!

  8. Love and war January 26, 2014

    Britney jean has some decent tracks idk why she’d choose that trash song with Will.i.am as the next single im over her.

  9. BeyIsKing January 26, 2014

    I love Britney I think she is legendary however it may be time to hang it up…She’s a shell of a her former self and it’s sad to watch her perform these days especially if you were a fan of hers before her breakdown. But I don’t see those greedy record labels letting her go anytime soon.

  12. overdose January 26, 2014

    GET MONEY B****.

  13. Common Sense January 26, 2014

    I can’t at Rihanna fans calling Britney garbage. Self shade much?

  14. JOHNVIDAL January 26, 2014

    Ok who the hell believed Britney was doing better than Celine Dion??? LOL It´s not only that, this comparison is ridiculous anyway. They are comparing only 4 shows, Britney´s very first ones ever, to some Celine´s 4 shows… after 10 YEARS in Vegas!!! Give me a f****** break! lol Celine Dion´s debut in Vegas in 2003 was HUGE, don´t want to describe how huge it was right now but it was, she is still doing it after 10 years for a reason.

  15. Emma Kelly January 26, 2014

    Piece of poo? How juvenile. This blog has a lot of potential to be huge but stupid petty articles like this makes it a local hood rat blog. Grow up Sam.

  16. Mike Won December 20, 2014

    We would never pay for any of these 3 but Brit is the only one worth it!
