Britney Spears announced today that she will take up headlining residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on December 27th. The pop songstress, in a show called “Piece of Me,” will perform 50 shows a year, combining both her old standards and new material into the act.

Britney follows in the footsteps of CeeLo Green who headlined his “Loberace” show at the same venue earlier this year, a two-hour over-the-top music fest which covered everything from “Prince and Blue Magic to The Rolling Stones, from new wave to disco and beyond.”

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday September 20th, however American Express cardholders have a 3-day head start (special code required). Tickets are estimated to start in the $60 range and go as high as $500 for specialty fan packages.

X-rated shows are a dime a dozen in this town, but the Rio aims to class up the genre with its new “X Rocks” topless revue. Opening August 29th, the show features a topless revue set to music from the likes of MUSE, Metallica, Awolnation, Alice in Chains, and Black Sabbath, among others. According to creator Angela Stabile, “We’ve taken some of the most powerful rock songs of all time and combined them with erotic, high-energy choreography and unbelievable sets….” The show—running Thursday through Sunday—will also feature comedy and magician Chris “Scandal” Randall. Attendees must be 18 years of age or older to attend.

Cost: Ticket prices start at $47.25.
