Ticket sales for Britney's Las Vegas shows a 'disaster'

BRITNEY Spears' Las Vegas show is currently bombing at the box office.

The 31-year-old pop star - who signed a two-year deal for a series of concerts entitled 'Britney: Piece of Me' at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino - will be disappointed with ticket sales reportedly a "disaster" with only three of the first 16 dates selling out ahead of her December 27 opening night.

An insider told "After spending hundreds of thousands on promo, they expected to instantly sell out all of the first 16 shows, but they didn't come close!

"In fact, Britney only sold out three of the 16 shows put on sale and many are considering this a disaster."

The source also noted past residencies for like Celine Dion and Shania Twain saw sell-outs for their first block of shows right away, heaping the pressure on the 'Hold It Against Me' hitmaker.

They added: "There are nearly 50 shows a year and the theatre is small ... It only holds about 4,500 people ... So all of this put together really isn't looking well for Britney.

"Ticket sales need to start skyrocketing or else there's going to be a lot of disappointed investors and people involved with the show."
