LiveNation has confirmed the New York City rumors that have been surrounding Britney Spears for several months. The company is her official live show promoter.
Some said we were crazy, but we really didn't care - that's our prerogative. For the fans and press such as myself who read the signs that Britney Spears would hit up NYC this year, this is juicy validation.
It may not turn out to be the New York City residency fans and the press speculated, but there's at least one NYC show coming this summer. It's Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 8pm.
She Gave Us A Sii-iii-iign...
The first and biggest clue came in form of the November 10, 2017 "secret project" teaser photo posted across Britney's social media. The cute pic features Britney in overalls giving photographer/documentary filmmaker Peter Lindbergh a kiss on the cheek.
Fans still do not know what was being filmed or photographed by Mr. Lindbergh, but the main theory has been an ad campaign for a residency or a world tour.
Due to the city-like set, and her apple emoji usage, many fans theorized Brit was planning a residency in New York City. She has fueled the speculation by using those apple emojis in the captions of her social media posts in the months since.
The sign in the background features Japanese writing that translates to "Piece of Me," which points to the show itself remaining largely the same as "Britney: Piece of Me" in Las Vegas.
Will There Be More Dates?
In Denmark, yes. In New York City? If we want more, Team B might give us more. Tours usually add second dates in big cities when the first date sells out fast.
Matt Stopera lives in NYC and works in the entertainment industry there. His thoughts make a lot of sense - Britney could easily sell out a run of shows at a venue the size of Radio City Music Hall.
With a confirmed Smukfest Festival date coming this August, it's safe to say there are plans to take the show on the road beyond NYC.
Today there have been many rumors varying in believability, from big shows in Dublin to residency-sized venues in Pennsylvania.
Over the past few months there have been many rumors about the UK, including people talking about the 02 in London.
