Britney Spears Shows She's #VegasStrong, Thanks First Responders at First Vegas Show Since Shooting

Britney Spears is back in action at her Piece of Me show in Las Vegas and she has a message for the world: Las Vegas is stronger than yesterday. 

The 35-year-old "Toxic" singer returned to the stage Wednesday night (Oct. 11) at the Planet Hollywood in Vegas for the first time since the deadly shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival earlier this month that killed 58 and injured more than 500 others. 

To open the concert, the phrase "#VegasStrong" appeared on the screens before Britney and her backup dancers came out sporting black "#VegasStrong" hats. 

"Before I start the show, I just want to say, we're here for you, you're here for us and we're going to get through together, okay?" she told a cheering crowd. 

Later on in the show, Britney thanked the first responders in the audience: “There are some special people in the audience tonight: they’re our Las Vegas first responders! Let’s give it up for them!”

Dancer Lake Smits took to Instagram on Thursday (Oct. 12) to share a heartfelt message about the show and the dancers' solidarity: “Last night we weren’t just in Vegas but the show was for Vegas! Our hearts and prayers go out to victims and families of 10/1/17 #vegasstrong.”
