LAS VEGAS (AP) — Britney Spears’ arrival in Las Vegas for her two-year residency in Sin City came complete with the kind of glitzy entertainment the town’s known for. Appearing with her were fire-breathers, contortionists, snake charmers and hunky dancers.

A block of the bustling Vegas strip was closed down as a convoy of SUVs carrying Spears and her entourage showed up at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.

Her run there begins on Dec. 27, just in time for the large crowds expected for New Year’s Eve.

She plans to do 50 shows each in 2014 and ’15.

Casino officials hope having Spears around will draw younger customers to the city for the show — and hopefully, to spend the weekend.
