Word that Britney Spears' Las Vegas residency was a done deal came weeks ago, so why hasn't there been an official announcement yet? Turns out that Britney and her team are just waiting for the right moment.
Sources tell The Las Vegas Sun that due to the construction and refurbishment plans, Britney's team hasn't been given the actual dates that the theater at Planet Hollywood -- where she'll be performing -- will become available. As a result, they're trying to decide if they should make their "big announcement" without any details or ticket information whatsoever, or just wait it out.
“It’s a very large, moving jigsaw puzzle -- there are so many parts to this,” a source tells The Sun. “Key people want tickets to go on sale at the same time as the official announcement about the contract signing and show details are released."
Once the theater is ready, of course, Britney's big production still has to be cast, staffed and rehearsed, so now it looks as though the show may not actually open until the spring of 2014.
“Britney wants to come to Las Vegas and is excited and looking forward to it. But she’s waiting now like everybody else for the last pieces to drop into place and get her start date,” the source dished.
