Britney cancels Friday and Saturday shows

The 33-year-old pop star “injured her ankle during her performance Wednesday evening and her doctor has advised her not to perform Friday and Saturday evening so that she may heal,” Caesars Entertainment executives said in a statement.

Ticketmaster and the Planet Hollywood box office will contact ticket holders to offer refunds or exchanges. Those with questions are encouraged to call 800-745-3000.
