On the heels of unveiling her highly anticipated refreshed show two weeks ago, pop princess Britney Spears has announced additional performance dates through September for her resident show “Britney: Piece of Me” at Axis at Planet Hollywood.
Tickets to performances from June through September go on sale to the public Friday at 10 a.m. PT. Her new dates will run from June 17-29, July 1-13, Aug. 17-31 and Sept. 2-10. Her new, extended contract runs through Dec. 31, 2017.
In addition to that extension in mid-February, Britney unveiled a substantial refreshing of her show. From fresh, seductive costumes to explosive new choreography, Britney is better and sexier than ever.
With the addition of fan-favorite songs such as “I Love Rock ’N’ Roll,” “Breathe on Me,” “Touch of My Hand” and “If U Seek Amy,” Britney has once again taken her show to new heights.
Our thanks to Denise Truscello of WireImage for her new photographs of the updated production. As we reported Monday, Britney welcomed members of the Backstreet Boys to “Piece of Me” over the weekend.
Since opening in December 2013, “Britney: Piece of Me” has won praise from critics and fans alike, with the show being voted Best Overall Show and Best Bachelorette Party. The record-setting show is sold out on a regular basis and has been seen by more than 500,000 people.
Britney is the first artist-in-residence at Axis, which features one of the largest indoor video and projection installations in the world.

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
