Robin Leach’s new interview with Britney is finally here! She talks about new Piece of Me changes, she confirms that new music is coming very soon and mentions how she misses touring and gives some hope to the fans who can’t travel to Las Vegas to see the show.
Robin also confirmed that two of her songs added to the new show are “Breathe on Me,” which leads into “Touch of My Hand.
Read out the interview below:
There’s no question that pop princess Britney Spears changed the pop-music dynamic on the Strip with her “Britney: Piece of Me” resident show at Axis at Planet Hollywood.
It’s been a blockbuster success since its Dec. 27, 2013, premiere. Fans have flocked to the show, and before its second anniversary, Britney extended her contract two years through 2017.
Her residency single-handedly triggered additional pop shows, with Jennifer Lopez and the upcoming Lionel Richie at Axis, along with Mariah Carey at Caesars Palace and Rascal Flatts at the Hard Rock hotel.
Many more are to come, I’m told!
Fans, other superstars, Caesars Entertainment execs and critics have raved about Britney’s spectacular with its staging, artistic effects and her adventurous onstage stunts of flying like an angel and swinging out over the audience from a jungle tree, plus the razzle-dazzle dance routines.
My review was posted Dec. 28, 2013. Britney has made herself a valuable member of our community and in October donated $120,000 to Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation in her partnership with the organization.
We’ll be back Monday with a report on the new look that Britney has given “Britney: Piece of Me” that she began working on in December. Meantime, she answered questions via email for Vegas DeLuxe:
Are you excited for the new look to “Piece of Me”? Tell me what we should expect.
Definitely excited! I’ve added a few fan-favorite songs into the show, changed up the intro and had fabulous new costumes designed for each act. I also put together an amazing dance break to three of my favorite Missy Elliot songs. And we have lasers now. I love the look of the lasers.
Why did you want to change it up, and what’s it like working with Baz Halpin?
I’m constantly getting hit up by fans asking me to add this song or that song, and I thought it would be a great idea after two years to give everyone a little something different. I love working with Baz Halpin — he really listens to me and understands how to make my vision come to life.
How long did it take to give it the new look from thoughts on paper to working out the routines and onto rehearsals?
The intention wasn’t to completely revamp the show — there are so many parts of the original show that I love and didn’t want to change — but it’s still a long process, maybe three months or so.
Starting with concepts and ideas to creative meetings about the setlist and new visuals, getting new mixes of music, creating choreography, then going into weeks of dance rehearsals and finally putting all of the production together. It’s a lot of moving parts. It makes me tired just thinking about it all! LOL.
