Spears has reportedly signed a two-year contract for 48 shows per year at $310,000 a pop, meaning she'll be pulling in about $15 million a year, according to TMZ. The 90-minute shows, which will be housed at Planet Hollywood's newly renovated PH Live Theater, are scheduled over the course of 60 alternating weekends, and will reportedly kick off in December.

"She's so excited to perform and show what great shape she is in now," an inside source told the Las Vegas Sun. "She is mentally and physically 100 percent ready for the Las Vegas shows." 

Spears' camp has been silent about the online rumors but there are definite signs that the Las Vegas show announcement will come Tuesday. For example, there's an unspecified countdown leading up to Sept. 17 on The singer also recently posted a photo of herself on Instagram in a full showgirl ensemble.

Veteran entertainment journalist Robin Leach gave his predictions about Spears' Tuesday announcement.

"The pop diva will perform one and possibly two tracks from the album, including 'Work B—,'" Leach wrote in the Sun. "Britney will then confirm the new residency at Planet Hollywood and reveal show dates and hopefully the on-sale date of ticketing, which also will be confirmed by Caesars Entertainment later that day."
