Guess who’s going to Vegas!
In an announcement made just earlier this morning, legendary icon and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Janet Jackson will be leaving her mark on the world renowned Las Vegas Strip.
Kicking off on May 17, a day after her birthday, Janet will be going through a full on transformation with her “Metamorphosis” show, that will run May, July, and August for a 15 show engagement at the Park Theater at Park MGM resort.
According to the announcement shared via press release on Tuesday, Metamorphosis will look to “peel 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 [audiences] through [their] senses with electrifying visuals, explosive dance numbers, chart-topping hits, and fan favorite deep cuts.” She’ll also be serving up something special by celebrating the 30th anniversary of her ground breaking album “Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814“.
This will be Janet’s first ever stint at a Vegas residency, which seems to be all the rage with a slew of top tier performs taking over the strip in the past few years. We’re interested in seeing exactly WHAT Janet’s show will be like given a huge Vegas budget, and the fact that she’s just come off of her “State Of The World” Tour.
Members of Jackson’s fan club will receive access to an exclusive presale beginning Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 10 a.m. PST, with Citi cardmembers receiving access two hours later; tickets starting at $79 go on sale March 2 at 10 a.m. PST over at Ticketmaster.com. Full dates are listed below.
