    According to Billboard, the set kicked off with Spears performing "Work Bitch" and she "descended from the sky in a globe-like cage." She sported a champagne-colored sequined ensemble that was reminiscent of the get-up she wore in her sultry "Toxic" music video, according to the magazine. She performed 24 songs in total, which featured at times "a massive rotating tree, pyrotechnics, rain and fire." Spears closed the show with the classic tune "Crazy" and came back for an encore of the upbeat track "Till the World Ends."

    "Wow… perfect audience for the 1st show! That was AMAZING!" Spears gushed afterwards on Twitter, along with a snapshot of herself sporting a black two-piece outfit and a Fedora on stage.

    Spears also thanked several of her famous fans, including the "Roar" singer and the Queen of Twerk, for their support during her Sin City debut.
