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.

Whether any of you like it or not Britney still sells out concerts, had an album on the rock n roll hall of fame. She is iconic!! Also she has more number #1 singles than Beyonce! Hey haters hey

Her "circus" show was the most embarrassing thing I have ever had the misfortune of witnessing. (No I didnt pay but I felt terrible for those that did) this zombie literally marches around like a bufoon while her record plays in the background. I felt completely ripped off and I didnt even pay, she can barely string a coherent sentence together.
What a travesty.

I'll say this much, neither one is anything great. I saw Celine Dion at Caesar's Palace in Vegas this summer, & I was very disappointed. Btw, she's very very tiny, is soooo skinny she looks anorexic. As for Britney Spears, she's still young, but I feel that she's all washed up.

How is celine dions show "run of the mil"? Britney is new to Vegas, and the demands are more if ur staying in one place doing shows. Celine has been at it for 10 years, so shes proven that she can sing there. Britney, this is her first attempt at it. off course she won't get as much, its like starting a new job, she needs to prove shes worth the investment.

Ok we all know what is going to happen. She is going to fat it all up, screw it up with her mental meltdowns. A Vegas train wreck in the making and of course folks are going to want to see it go down, so they will go to see her shows hoping it will be that show that she has her meltdown before being escorted off to the looney bin. She is NOT the Britney of the past people. She is done. Why have her headlining a show in Vegas, so many others way better and much more talented.

oh come on. how unprofessional of you to line britney spears up against celine dion, in terms of viewership. celine dion's fans are mostly upper class couples who have loads of cash. britney spears target group are teens. of course the money celine dion is going to be raking in is going to make britney's look like spare change. teens are a huge target market, but they don't have much money behind them. where a married couple will easily spend $500 for a nice evening, teens will feel like they splurged when they spend $100. shame on you, tmz. you are pouring unnecessary fuel in a little flame of fire.

These celebrities make tooooo much money! If they were all to pitch into national poverty, by sharing their exaggerated wealth, there would not be people in the streets. They are self serving and Democrats
