Pop superstar Katy Perry listened to serious overtures from Caesars Entertainment execs on New Year’s Eve about performing in a mini-residency at the new theater the Axis at Planet Hollywood when pop princess gal pal Britney Spears is on break from her 100 dates over the next two years.
I was reliably told that Katy and her team met with the Caesars officials when she played a secret show for their high rollers Tuesday night. “We would love it if we could welcome Katy to the new Planet Hollywood theater,” one entertainment VP told me.
“She told us she loved the theater and seeing Britney perform there on opening night. We have a number of stars in our sights and expect to announce future performers in the next two months.”
Katy, her dancers and band dazzled guests with the private show, which I watched. She won screams and applause for singing during a jump-rope workout and for accompanying herself simply on a guitar.
In between songs, Katy talked with audience members and even gave a high-five to one who said that it was his New Year’s resolution to “reach out and touch her.”
Another top Caesars exec told me: “She put on an incredible show. It would be another big hit at Planet Hollywood if it can be worked out before or around her upcoming global tour. Katy impressed all of us with her personality and professionalism. She loved being part of our Caesars family for the New Year. Hopefully it can continue.”
Britney ha impact!
Also, it's cute how much she wanted Unconditionally to be a smash hit and not Dark Horse
Well... it looks like Dark Horse is literally becoming a Dark Horse of a song! Sounds like the people have spoken... I must listen...— Katy Perry (@katyperry) December 31, 2013
