Jennifer Lopez Beats Britney Spears’ Las Vegas Residency Box Office Record
The night Jennifer Lopez has been waiting for since 1999 has come and gone, leaving box office sales of record-breaking proportions in its glittery wake.
All I Have, J-Lo's headlining show at the Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, earned over $1 million in box office revenue on August 13. This means that it beats out previous record-holder Britney Spears and her Piece of Me residency for the show with the most ticket sales in one night.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that All I Have marks the first show within the Caesars Entertainment property to top Spears' previous one-night record with Piece of Me, which launched on December 27, 2013, becoming Planet Hollywood's highest-grossing show to date.
On the same evening Lopez beat the box office record, her ex-husband Marc Anthony and his current wife, model Shannon de Lima, attended her performance. Later backstage, the two met up with the "Booty" singer and her boyfriend, Casper Smart, where they took photos and celebrated, Entertainment Tonight reports.
On Wednesday (August 17), Spears returned to Las Vegas from vacationing in Hawaii to kick off a new set of Piece of Me performances (Leg 15) which are set to run through September 10. Currently, her residency is scheduled to wrap February 4, 2017.
Lopez, whose own residency kicked off January 20, 2016, will return to the Axis on December 9.
