Janet Jackson is bringing her musical legacy to Las Vegas. The superstar singer announced a residency, dubbed "Metamorphosis," at MGM resort's Park Theater on Tuesday. The concert series, which kicks off in the spring, marks the 30th anniversary of Janet's fourth studio album and chart-topper Rhythm Nation 1814.

"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'llbe at the @parkmgm in May, July & August. Link in bio. _ #MetamorphosisVegas," Jackson wrote on Twitter.

Jackson's residency is expected to include 14 shows scheduled throughout May, July and August. Presale tickets will be available for members of Jackson's official fan club as of Wednesday at 10 a.m. PT, while Citi card members can receive early access to tickets two hours later at 12 p.m. PT.

"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,'" the statement read.

The 52-year-old's announcement comes following the release of her latest single, "Made for Now," which debuted in August. The Velvet Rope singer is expected to release a new album, her 12th studio album, later in 2019.

Jackson is one of many pop stars to take their talents to the Vegas strip. The artist's MGM residency follows in the footsteps of Lady Gaga's "Enigma" and "Jazz & Piano" showcases, which debuted in December 2018. Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Backstreet Boys, Aerosmith and Lady Antebellum also held residencies in Sin City.

Celine Dion notably held two residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, extending nearly two decades. Her first residency at the resort ran from 2003 to 2007 while her second, which started in 2011, recently ended in 2018.
