Janet Jackson’s Las Vegas residency was brief, yet mighty.
According to Billboard’s Boxscore, Jackson's 18-date Metamorphosis residency at the Park Theater at Park MGM hotel grossed $13 million and sold 76,813 tickets.
The second and final leg of shows, which ran from July 24 to Aug. 17, generated $8.9 million in ticket sales.

Those figures mean Jackson's show was averaging $722,000 per night, which puts her pacing ahead of some of the biggest Vegas performers of the decade.
For example, back in 2011, Celine Dion's opening pace was $704,000. Britney Spears’ was $679,000 in 2013 and The Backstreet Boys’ was $593,000 in 2017.
Metamorphosis featured nearly every Janet Jackson hit you could want, from "That's the Way Love Goes," "Got 'til It's Gone" and "All for You" to "Nasty," "If," "Control" and "The Pleasure Principle."
Next up, Jackson plays a string of fall dates in Australia, from Nov. 8-17, and Hawaii on Nov. 20- 21.
