posted by James Dinh -

Just as it was rumored, Britney Spears will take her recently-wrapped "Piece of Me" Las Vegas residency show on the road this summer to select dates across the United States, Europe and the UK in July and August.

As per an announcement on Tuesday (January 23), the pop titan will hit several east coast cities with the award-winning show, which went on to sell nearly 1 million tickets in Sin City. After spending four years on the west coast, Spears' 23-date trek will begin in mid-July at the MGM National Harbor in Maryland and make its way up the coast until she ventures across the pond for dates in Europe and the UK. Elizabeth Arden, Spears fragrance partner, and Pepsi are sponsoring the new tour. Tickets go on sale Friday.

"You all… I can’t tell you how much I miss performing the #PieceOfMeshow! Which is why... I'm so excited to announce that we're bringing the #PieceOfMe tour to select cities in North America, Europe and the UK!" she captioned Instagram posts of her "Toxic" performance from ABC's Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. "See you guys this summer ✨"

As per the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the pop titan's box office take from her last show on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas rounded out to $1,172,000, a record figure for the Planet Hollywood venue and the "highest reported take for a single show in a theater residency ever in Las Vegas."
