Following in the wake of stars like Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Cher, Bruno Mars, and… Nickelback, Janet Jackson has announced a new Las Vegas residency. The pop icon will stage a production dubbed “Metamorphosis” over 15 nights at Park MGM’s Park Theater. Update — Monday, May 13th: Due to popular demand, three more August dates have been added.

The show is said to peel “back the layers of the immensely private life of Janet Jackson” as it follows her story from a youth of self-esteem issues to an adulthood of international stardom. Through a mix of dance numbers and high-tech visuals accompanying Jackson’s wealth of hits, “fans will follow her path to self-love, empowerment, motherhood and activism, amidst the challenges faced along her personal journey,” as a press release puts it.

The performances will also feature a section celebrating the 30th anniversary of Jackson’s landmark 1989 landmark concept record, Rhythm Nation.
