Janet Jackson is headed to Sin City.

The five-time Grammy winner announced plans on Tuesday for her first-ever Las Vegas residency. The “Metamorphosis” show will begin May 17 and run until mid-August.


“‘Metamorphosis’ peels back the layers of the immensely private life of Janet Jackson, sharing her transformation from a young girl with issues of self-esteem to global Icon,” a press release for the show read.

The show also features a special 30-year anniversary celebration of her groundbreaking album “Rhythm Nation.”

“The centerpiece of this all new thought-provoking show will be Janet herself, captivating you through your senses with electrifying visuals, explosive dance numbers, chart-topping hits and fan favorite deep cuts,” the statement continued. “Fans will follow her path to self-love, empowerment, motherhood and activism, amidst the challenges faced along her personal journey.'”

Jackson, 52, welcomed her first child, a son, in 2017 and has talked about the joy motherhood has brought into her life.


“The height of happiness is holding my baby son in my arms and hearing him coo, or when I look into his smiling eyes and watch him respond to my tenderness,” Jackson shared in Essence.

The singer dropped a new single, “Made for Now,” back in August and a new album is expected this year. She signed with Paradigm for representation in all areas in November.

Jackson will have 15 shows in May, July and August at the Park Theater at Park MGM resort.
Tickets for the residency go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. PST and are starting at $79.
