Britney Spears is probably going to make the “big announcement” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this morning — if the story is true, she’ll announce a brand new Las Vegas residency — that will have her become the highest paid entertainer in Vegas history! [Source – DailyMail]
Her new deal is at the Park Theater at the Park MGM Las Vegas (5,200 seats), where Lady Gaga is going to start her residency in December.
Britney will make $507,000 a show!! That breaks the record, previously held by Celine Dion, of $476,000 a night.
Britney’s previous residency show, the 4-year run at Planet Hollywood grossed nearly 138-million bucks over 248 shows = approx $400,000 a night.
That’s a 26.75% pay increase for Brit – more than keeping up with inflation.
