Pop icon Britney Spears, who once told her fans to “Hit Me Baby One More Time” and raised flight attendant status to “Toxic” levels, is swinging by Manila on June 15 to set the Mall of Asia on fire.
The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning artist, known for her daring and sexy routines—which may or may not include hefting along a slithering python named Banana—is coming to Manila on June 15, 2017 at the Mall of Asia Arena for her first-ever and much-awaited concert in the Philippines.
The former Disney Mouseketeer is one of a select number of artists to snag a Vegas residency (a series of concerts similar to a concert tour, but performed only at one location—in Britney’s case the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.)
Her cutting-edge pop concert Las Vegas residency, “Britney: Piece of Me,” has been voted “Best Show in Las Vegas” and “Best Bachelorette Show in Las Vegas.” Spears has also been creating fragrances for over ten years, and currently has 21 fragrances available in over 85 countries around the world.
She’s one of the most successful and celebrated entertainers in pop history. She has sold nearly 150 million records worldwide. In the U.S. alone, she has sold more than 70 million albums, singles and songs, according to Nielsen Music.
Born in Mississippi and raised in Louisiana, Spears became a household name as a teenager when she released her first single “…Baby One More Time,” a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 smash and international hit that broke sales records with more than 20 million copies sold worldwide and is currently 14x Platinum in the U.S.
Her musical career boasts countless awards, including six Billboard Music Awards and Billboard’s Millennium Award, which recognizes outstanding career achievements and influence in the music industry as well as an American Music Award and the 2011 MTV Video Vanguard Award. So far, Spears has earned a total of six No.1-debuting albums on the Billboard 200 chart and 22 top 40 hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100 — four of which went to No. 1. Spears has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won for Best Dance Recording in 2005.
