Another legendary artist is coming to the Las Vegas Strip!
On Tuesday, Janet Jackson announced she’s going to have a residency at the Park MGM this year. The show, titled Metamorphosis, will explore the hit-making singer’s decades-long evolution and boast a dazzling effects show to match her reputation as a performer.
“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 from the venue and Live Nation explains. “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 show also features a special 30-year anniversary celebration of her ground-breaking album ‘Rhythm Nation.’”
Hey u guys, I’m so excited to announce my new Vegas residency, “Metamorphosis”! A celebration of my journey and the 30th anniversary of #RhythmNation! I’ll be at the @parkmgm in May, July & August. Link in bio. 💜 #MetamorphosisVegas

Once a hallmark of legacy acts like Celine Dion and Wayne Newton, Vegas residencies have become a staple for chart-topping artists of all stripes including Britney Spears, Skrillex, Christina Aguilera, Lady Antebellum, Blink 182 and Lady Gaga.
Just last month, Cardi B announced that she’d be setting up shop at the Palms Casino Resort at KAOS, the locale’s brand new indoor/outdoor venue following a $690 million renovation.
