A success on and off paper.
Nearly one-million people wanted a piece of Britney Spears in Las Vegas!
The pop star’s wildly successful Piece Of Me show is nearing its end, but it’s only the beginning for the Glory singer. Billboard put together a list of important measurable accomplishments Britney has achieved throughout her four-year stint, and it’s extremely impressive.
Below are a couple of highlights. Check those out and see the full list on Billboard.
■ 881,000: Number of tickets sold to Britney: Piece of Me, through its Oct. 28 performance, according to Billboard Boxscore.

■ $130 million: Piece of Me has generated more than $130 million in ticket sales and will likely generate another $5-6 million through its closing night performance.
■ 7,300: Number of fans Spears has met backstage during the Piece of Me run.
