Britney Spears “Piece of Me” in Las Vegas

I shared with you my Weekend in Vegas experience yesterday but I figured since the whole point of our trip was all about Britney, that her concert experience deserved it’s very own post!

When I stepped off the plane on Thursday in Vegas I was welcomed into this new city with a fun surprise on my email. Apparently, Britney was going to be giving a special private show before the concert with a surprise guest – if I was one of the first 500 people to response, I could go. So obviously, I dropped everything in the middle of the airport to respond to this email!

When Michelle & I booked our trip, I took care of the concert tickets & she booked the hotel. We are lucky that we coordinated it that way because when I got the email, Michelle was still on her flight in the air & when she touched down it would have likely been too late for us to get on the list!

So I got a confirmation email later in the day on Thursday telling me when & where we had to be to get into the preview show before the concert. The concert was at 9:00pm and we were told to be in line at 5:00pm to get into the special show – we arrived at 4:30pm and were about the 25/30th people in line – which worked out great for us because we were able to get front row standing spots for the show.

When we were eventually let in, after waiting a while, we got our spots and got to waiting some more. The folks running the show told us that we were there to see a “dress rehearsal” for the Britney Spears + Iggy Azalea “Pretty Girls” video which would be shown live during the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. They said that they would run through the song a few times and we would get to check it out. I was pretty excited just to be able to see everything up close and personal!

After the producers got the lighting and staging right we were told that they were going to bring out LUDACRIS who would be announcing the show {he was a co-host for the BBMA’s on Sunday}. I was pretty surprised when we got to see him, he’s really funny and was cracking jokes the whole time. Then they brought out the dancers and started the song & Britney + Iggy came out and did their thing! They ran through the song 3 times which was awesome, but my favorite part was seeing the singers in between the sets – Britney was so nervous and everyone was cheering her on, but she was totally awkward when handling the love from the fans. You can totally tell she has a performing side & a regular person side {which apparently is super shy}.

And the absolute BEST part about the preview show was that it was the actual version that was shown during the BBMA’s on Sunday, which you can see by my screenshot of me in the crowd at the show:

I was totally on TV and it was really cool to be a part of the Britney Spears experience. But it does go to show you that even though they say it’s “live” – it’s totally not! Haha!

After the pre-show and all the excitement of seeing Britney, Iggy + Ludacris, we still had an entire concert to see! So we excited the concert hall & got back in line to re-enter once they started letting people in for the actual show.

When it was all said and done, we were standing from 4:30pm – 11:30pm – since our seats for both the concert + pre-show were standing room only. Needless to say, my feet were KILLING me at the end of the day.

After getting out of the pre-show and getting back in line for the concert so quickly, we were able to score the same standing room spots right in the front row, which was totally worth it for the actual show because Britney was RIGHTTHERE the entire time.

I’ve been a fan of Britney for a long time – Michelle + I have been to pretty much every concert together, it’s sort of our thing – but this concert was, I think, her best one yet! It was all her best songs, the dancing and entertainment was off the charts and she even sang! Yes, I know I’m crazy for paying money to go to a singing concert where I don’t even expect the singer to sing, but to each his own! Ha!

I think because Britney had the BBMA’s this weekend she was really on top of her game. She looked amazing and was a seriously awesome show. Here are a few pictures from the show:

Check out the stage behind us! AH! We were so close!

We had an awesome time at the show and the fact that we got to see a little mini show beforehand was just the icing in the cake! If you are in Vegas I would totally recommend seeing Piece of Me {if you are a Britney fan!} – it was fun, high energy and entertaining!

    The show looks awesome! My grandparents live in Vegas so I visit every couple of months. Will have to tell them to get tickets for my next trip out. I saw Britney on tour in high school so it’ll be a little nostalgic too 🙂
