The show at Borgata was a complete arsenal of Britneys’ hit catalog
From Miss America to the upcoming Miss’d America, Atlantic City has never not been all about the show. On July 20, 2018, Britney Spears took the stage at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and showed a packed audience that the showgirl was about to give them three nights of performances that they would not soon forget.
For close to two hours you got the quintessential Britney Spears experience. From “Womanizer” to “Oops I Did It Again” you got a complete arsenal of Spears’ hit catalog. Her production helps to keep the tracks unique and gives them a new freshness. “Piece Of Me” also enables Spears to showcase some of her lesser known tracks on her own terms. it gives tracks like “Break The Ice” and “Clumsy” the full attention that they actually deserve. For every dance stomping “Piece Of Me” there is a throbbing rendition of “Do You Wanna Come Over” giving both veteran and neophyte Britney fans what they wanted from the former teen queen. A surprise mini-medley of Missy Elliot was a nod to her TRL days when both artists were starting to hit it big and the not so subtle roar from the crowd showed that they definitely got that.
Spears has both come and gone during her career
A large part of what makes Piece Of Me a truly masterful concert experience is the production that Spears and her team put into the show. Each dancer is more gorgeous (and seemingly flexible) than the next. And at certain times, the dancers themselves kept the audience captivated while Spears was making a quick off stage costume change. Arguably so, they kept the audience almost as captivated as the main attraction!
Lasers that went from the stage to the back of the venue, sultry backdrops, and at one point, a constantly evolving video wall showed Spears at almost every incarnation of her career. It truly showed how far this artist has both come and gone during her career.
It’s all about the show!
The key to enjoying a Britney Spears experience (because that is truly what it is) is to know exactly what you are getting. It’s a knock down pop diva showcase. It has a hearty dose of “Viva Las Vegas”-realness thrown in. You’re not going to get Streisand or Gaga-style vocals. But the woman who has almost always been considered the heir apparent to Madonna herself has apparently learned a few things from Madge herself. It’s all about the show! The hits and the production; on these fronts, Spears checked every single box and more.
Britney Spears Piece Of Me kicked off in December of 2013 at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. It has grossed more then $140 million dollars. The show headed to New York City and then Miss Spears jets off to Europe to continue the show.
