Janet Jackson is headed to Sin City!

The Grammy Award-winning singer announced her first Las Vegas residency via Instagram this morning. Jackson told her 3.5 million followers that the show – dubbed “Metamorphosis” – will launch May 17 at Park MGM Resort’s Park Theater.

Starting in May, Jackson will hit the stage for 15 shows through the end of August (with a hiatus in June).

According to Jackson’s official announcement, “’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. 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. Fans will follow her path to self-love, empowerment, motherhood and activism, amidst the challenges faced along her personal journey. She encourages her audiences to find their own light within themselves through her ‘Metamorphosis.’”
