Britney Spears' Las Vegas show was said to be selling poorly out of the gate, according to earlier reports. Well, those reports look to have been wrong.
The pop star's people are calling "Piece of Me" the "best-selling show in the history of Vegas" before she's even debuted ... and they may not be far off.
Britney Spears will be performing 48 shows a year for the next two years, for around $300,000 each. Seats are already available now for the first 16 shows.
For those 16 concerts, a total of 73,600 tickets were for sale.
The number of tickets actually sold? 70,242. In like a week.
Of the 3,358 remaining, 2,887 are in nosebleed territory.
Whether it's the "best-selling show in the history of Vegas" or not is hard to prove. But it almost doesn't matter, because she is about to OWN Vegas.
Planet Hollywood sources say they are thinking about adding shows if Britney's game - again, all before she's taken the stage there - in the coming years.
It's Britney's world. Bitch. We just live in it. Bow down.
