Britney is bringing the EXTRAVAGANZA to Vegas, says the director of the show!
He gives Billboard the following NEW details!
* “It’s very difficult to take all those songs in the context on a 100-minute show and make them all work musically together, because you have ‘Work Bitch’ on one hand and ‘…Baby One More Time’ on the other,” says Halpin, who also worked on Cher’s three-year residency at Las Vegas’ Colosseum at Caesars Palace in 2008. “They’re incredibly different sonically. So we’ve taken every piece of music in the show and — if it’s an older hit — given it a modern, new and interesting take on it. Some of the newer hits we’ve worked into medleys.”
* “If you go see Britney in December and then go see her six months after that, there’s no guarantee it’s going to be the same show. It’s structured so that over the next two years, as she continues to create new music, the show will swap in and out.”
* “She’s more focused on singing than she is on dance. But it’s still a 100% dance show,”
* “The lobby will have all sorts of cool and interesting memorabilia, bars and some secret things I can’t tell you about that will involve the audience in the show. When they walk into the theater, they’re not walking in with house lights on with an usher showing them to their seats; they’re walking into a massive club. When the show starts, it becomes an extension of the club. Britney becomes the main event of this club.”
