Janet Jackson Launches ‘Metamorphosis’ Residency: See The Setlist

Janet Jackson has officially touched down in Las Vegas. Over the weekend the living legend became the latest hitmaker to launch a residency in Sin City. And hers, titled Metamorphosis, looks like a hit-filled must-see. Opening Friday (May 17) in Park Theater at Park MGM, one look at the setlist makes it clear the 53-year-old intends to highlight some other biggest hits and fan favorites. That includes hidden gems she hasn’t performed in years such as “Trust A Try,” “You” and “Rock With U.”

Of course, she also works her way through enduring anthems like “Rhythm Nation,” “Doesn’t Really Matter” and “Black Cat.” If you’re in the mood for more recent material, you’re also in luck. Janet caps things off with her latest single “Made For Now.” Based on the tantalizing setlist and some photos from opening weekend, it is clear that the icon is pulling no punches. Metamorphosis runs through August, and tickets are available for purchase here. Scroll through a gallery of pictures and check out the opening night setlist below.
