On February 13, 2016, Britney Spears started the 12th leg of her Las Vegas residency Britney: Piece of Me. The revamped version of the show, that started in 2013 and was originally set to last for two years, came as a result of a two-years extension that was announced in late 2015.


New outfits and props were added to the show, which kept most of the base setlist, though some of the songs were rearranged in the order they were performed, and some other songs such as Lucky and Perfume were completely removed in order to incorporate new tracks.


This new format would be kept throughout the year and until the end of the residency in 2017, including the Asian Tour that summer, though some songs would be added and removed along the way.



Among the changes were the inclusion of Gimme More's second verse, which was originally shortened as it was performed on a medley with Break the Ice and Piece of Me (which were both moved to the first act replacing 3).


Britney also brought back her cover of I Love Rock 'N' Roll, which she hadn't performed live since her Dream Within a Dream Tour ended in 2002. For this performance they made use of the giant electric guitar on which she performed Burning Up during the first dates of her Femme Fatale Tour in 2011.





A dance medley composed of three Missy Elliot songs was also added to the setlist after Pretty Girls. The songs were Work It, Get Your Freak On and WTF (Where They From) and the medley would be performed on the promo performances that she did later in the year at different radio festivals. 






A new segment that was added after Circus, were three other songs she brought back from her old catalogue: If U Seek Amy, Breathe on Me and Touch of My Hand.







Looking better and happier than ever, this started what would be considered by the fans the second prime of Britney Spears that would extend throughout 2016.

That was a moment and it set the expectations for Glory. A few months after that we got the BBMA performance which was a killer one! It is after that that things started getting messier - Make me official video taking so fricking long, the result was a big meme, the VMAs were nice but very polarising reviews, especially after Beyonce's killer medley. And then we know the rest :jj_janet_smirk_hehe_haha_lmao_lol_giggle:

Well that was such an important moment for the fans. 

Despite not being perfect, this show really gave us glimpse of Primeney. We were ecstatic about the womanizer dancebreak, gm full performance, i love rock and roll and her overall look, energy and charisma. 

One of the best moment to be a stan after 2004

This was the closest to Primeney we got. Period. Better than both Circus promotional performances and the super-duper-overrated Circus Tour, better than anything she gave us post 2004.  

Yes, it didn't last that long (indeed, the performances she did in late 2016 like at the Apple thing were quite bad already), but it was incredible experiencing those glimpses of Primeney, I was genuinely shocked, I didn't expect that at all.

I mean, this is literally Overprotectedney:

I    saw the one of the last shows in 2015, before seeing the new show in 2017, and I  feel like I    got the best of both worlds. At the end of 2015, Brit was on fire. The show was confident, **** and fun. I LOVED the Alien ball coming out of the ceiling. Missed that in the second version of the show. The addition of 'Breathe On Me' and 'Touch of my Hand' though.... I  was in heaven in 2017. Miss it!
