After 4 years and almost 250 performances, Britney Spears and getting ready to hang up the bedazzled bodysuits of her "Piece of Me" Las Vegas residency. The final performance at the Planet Hollywood Resort will happen on December 31, 2016. Tickets for the last run of shows will go on sale to the public on Friday, April 14th.

Singer may launch another residency after new album

Since the show launched in December 2013, "Piece of Me" has reportedly earned over $100 million in ticket sales and was named the Best Entertainment Show in Las Vegas in 2015. The show also holds the distinction of having the most expensive top-tier ticket for sale on the Vegas strip at around $855 per seat.

Once Spears' contract with Caesars Entertainment ends in December, it is expected that she will begin working on the follow-up to her 2016 album "Glory." Although that album was generally well-received by critics and landed on a number of end-of-year lists, its sales within the U.S. were low compared to many of her past records, and significantly lower than today's pop starlets like Taylor Swift and Adele. With a hugely successful Vegas residency under her belt and a resurgence of interest in the tabloid media, it is expected that a new album could fare much better in today's market.

The singer's manager, Larry Rudolph, recently told a local Las Vegas newspaper that Spears could very likely return to the city in the future for another residency, as both she and the Caesars' team seem to be interested in the idea.

"Britney basically sells out every show, and she loves Las Vegas, she loves performing in Vegas, and Vegas is a possibility going forward," he told the Review-Journal in early April.

Currently on hiatus, Spears' Las Vegas concerts will begin again on May 3rd, running through May 20th before the singer embarks on a brief international tour of Israel and Asia. It was recently reported that her July 3rd concert scheduled in Tel Aviv has pushed an Israeli election to the following day.

Residency gave huge boost after breakdown

The Las Vegas residency came at the perfect time for Spears, who was in the midst of a career revival in 2013. In 2007, at the age of 25, the singer had a very public meltdown involving a now infamous head shaving incident. For the next several years, Spears was plagued by paparazzi and dogged by accusations about her physical and mental health, due in part to a legal conservatorship that allowed her father to make personal, professional, and financial decisions on her behalf well into 2016.

As her "Piece of Me" residency was renewed for tens of millions of dollars over several years, Spears was able to show fans and industry alike that she is a reliable bet once again. She has obviously been able to regain enough of her confidence to perform for the world, most recently at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards (watch below). While Spears may not be the perky, performing teenager the world came to love before the stigma of her famous breakdown, her Las Vegas residency seems to have at least shown that she is able to put up a fight to become music's top pop star again.
