Britney Spears

TITANIC Vegas Contract

But She Can't Touch Celine

Britney Spears
will be raking in HUGE STACKS in Vegas this winter -- a ridiculous $310,000 per show ... nearly $15 million per year -- but she still doesn't hold a candle to Celine Dion.

TMZ is privy to the financial details of Britney's deal.  The 2-year contract calls for 48 shows a year at Planet Hollywood.   According to the contract, Britney will earn $310,000 per show.

By contrast, Celine does 70 shows a year.  Sources say she pulls in $476,000 a show ... so she's way ahead of Britney in the money department, but Brit gets more time off.

Britney's cut of the gate is huge -- projected sales per show are $508,514, meaning Brit will be snagging more than 60%.

As we reported, producers are shooting for a "cool, hip club-like show" ... unlike the run-of-the-mill Vegas shows that preceded it (Celine's included). It starts in December.

If that's not convincing, check out these cool 3D mock-ups of the stage.

Love Las Vegas. Would NEVER pay a dime to see this show., Nothing against her. Wish her well, just despise her handlers for forcing her down everyone's throat. Youngsters will go to see this at first, then it's all downhill. Waste of money and time. Let her live a quiet life, and stop this madness. Between her and Miley Cyrus, the show biz world has lost its appeal.

nearly $15 million per year -- but she still doesn't hold a candle to Celine Dion................BRITNEY SPEARS DOES NOT HAVE A BAND, ONLY DANCERS AND BRITNEY DOES NOT SING LIVE, SO $15 MILLION A YEAR IS ENOUGH, I WOULD RATHER NAIL BRITNEY SPEARS MULTIPLE TIMES IN ALL POSITIONS RATHER THAN CELINE DION...

Britney doesn't have Celine's voice, talent and reputation to sell out shows 9 months in advance like Celine. Planet Hollywood is noted for it's party crowd of younger people. It will be interesting to see if Britney can pull this off for 2 years.

Unlike Britney, Celine can actually sing.

48 shows per year huh? Well if Britney can do it, then why did the thought of doing 50 shows give Michael Jackson a nervous breakdown?

She CAN touch Celine. She is Britney Spears and she gets much more attention after her Vegas deal. Nobody can reach Britney's level coz she's the biggest female artist in music. She did in 10 years what others can do in 30 years. She's a legend.

You cannot compare these two. Tho I am not a fan of Celine Dion she has the talent to back a huge Vegas show. Unfortunately Britney does not and has never sang live so I don't see this lasting. Maybe for a month or two but then the excitement will wear off.
