Britney Spears Details
Singer, dancer, and actress, Britney Spears has been in the public eye since she appeared on the popular ‘90s show, “Star Search”, at the tender age of eight. She was cast in several commercials before she joined the cast of “The Mickey Mouse Club” at ten years old, remaining on the show until it was canceled in 1996. Originally tapped for a potential all-girl NSYNC counterpart, Britney Spears recorded a demo and auditioned with several record labels as a solo artist. Ignoring the labels that said that a teen solo act wasn’t going to happen in the ‘90s, Britney Spears signed with Jive Records and released her first studio album, “Baby One More Time”, in 1999, which became the best-selling album by a teenager. Regarded by many as a pop icon, Britney Spears is credited with reviving teen pop at the end of the ‘90s and proving the naysayers wrong.
Not only was Britney Spears the best-selling teenage artist of all time, Britney Spears also has the distinction of being the best-selling female artist of the first decade of the 2000s, and recognized by Forbes Magazine as the highest paid female musician of 2012. In 2013, Britney Spears started a four-year resident concert series in Las Vegas, performing 248 shows before its conclusion at the end of 2017.
Britney Spears has been successful on the awards front as well, earning over 250 nominations, and winning more than one hundred awards. Perhaps most notable of her many awards are her seven Guinness Book of World Records held for albums sales, being the youngest female artist to have six number one albums, and reaching number 1 the fastest on the UK chart (by a female teenage solo artist). She also won the Best Dance Recording Grammy Award in 2005 for her single “Toxic”, in addition to the American Music Awards Favorite New Pop Artist in 2000.
Britney Spears Concert Setlist
Britney’s setlist is packed full of fan favorites, including the single that shot her to superstardom, “Baby One More Time”. “Oops!..I Did It Again” is another of her earlier songs that is included in her concerts, as well as the catchy, “Toxic”, and the hypnotic, “Womanizer”. “Everytime” is a ballad that shows her softer, more vulnerable side, dropping the pop/dance genre to give fans a glimpse of Britney Spears rarely seen in her other songs. The costume for “Everytime” leaves fans awestruck, with the massive angel wings and matching graphics making Britney Spears look quite natural floating above the stage as she sings the song.
Britney Spears in Concert
It’s no surprise that Vegas came calling in 2013, offering Britney Spears a coveted spot as a resident performer at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. With her vibrant, exciting stage shows, she was the perfect fit for the Vegas venue, even earning an extension to play Vegas until December 31st, 2017. Her off-Vegas concerts are just as spectacular, mixing exciting dance routines, fun costumes, and dazzling set changes — a Britney Spears concert is the complete Britney Spears experience. Fans are sure to get more than they expect, which is exactly what Britney delivers.
