Janet Jackson Announces Las Vegas Summer Residency

The 15-date run will celebrate the 30th anniversary of "Rhythm Nation."

Janet Jackson is ready to turn Las Vegas into a rhythm nation—at least for the summer. The pop icon has announced Metamorphosis, her Las Vegas residency that will kick off in May at Park Theater at Park MGM resort in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Rhythm Nation.
 

The shows will trace Jackson’s “path to self-love, empowerment, motherhood, and activism, amidst the challenges she faced along her personal journey,” according to a statement.

Tickets for the 15-date run go on sale Saturday via Ticketmaster, with a presale for members of the artist’s fan club and Citi cardmembers beginning on Wednesday. Jackson’s 15 dates help fill the void at Park Theater left by Britney Spears’ cancellation of her original 31 dates in her Domination show.

Next month, Jackson will be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2019 alongside Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Radiohead, Def Leppard, Roxy Music, and the Zombies.

Between Jackson getting nasty, and Christina Aguilera getting dirrty, Vegas is going to be sinfully delicious.
