Britney Spears fine-tunes details of her residency at Planet Hollywood

Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale Tour stop at MGM Grand Garden Arena on June 25, 2011.

Britney Spears has been told that construction and makeover details of her new Las Vegas home at Planet Hollywood are nearing completion — and I’ve learned that she’s begun making plans for a November start date.

It’s expected that in about 20 days, full details of the production with Caesars Entertainment will be revealed, with the director being named at the same time. The initial concert dates and ticket sales information will be unveiled then, too.

It’s unclear, though, if the November date will be the start of final Las Vegas rehearsals or the start of her two-year run of alternating weekends.

Preliminary rehearsals and casting begin late September or early October in Los Angeles. Work on the technical aspects of installing new lighting and sound for Britney’s PH Live theater will start this summer.

To clear up confusion on the Twitterverse by fans, Britney was not here in Las Vegas over the weekend and did not make appearances at Planet Hollywood or Boulevard Theater. This is the second time in a week that a Britney look-alike has been spotted at functions, but the real pop princess remains at home in Los Angeles.

I’m told that’s where she is getting more and more excited about her Las Vegas residency and planning her next new recording session.
