Britney Spears Lands Concert Special

Spears follows Bruce Springsteen in taking her show to the cable network.

Britney Spears follows Bruce Springsteen as the next artist to take her show to HBO.

The cable network will broadcast Spears live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on November 18, according to Variety. While the teen pop star has taken her stage show to the small screen before, the HBO special will mark her first live TV concert.

HBO usually produces two to three concert events per year. Senior vice president of original programming Nancy Geller told Variety there will likely be a third this year, but declined to name the artist.

Last year, HBO featured Marc Anthony and 'NSYNC, and the network usually spends more than $1 million on each concert.

"When you can only do two to three of these a year, you really kind of think about what the new and young subscriber is going to want," Geller said.

HBO will first air the Springsteen special "Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band" on April 7. It was shot during the final two nights of the band's world tour, which culminated in a 10-show stand at New York's Madison Square Garden.
