Janet Jackson just wrapped her summer stint at the Park MGM’s Park Theater in Las Vegas for her highly anticipated ‘Metamorphosis‘ residency, and based on the final sales tally–Ms. Jackson (if you’re nasty) has become one of the highest earners in the city of sin.

Based on sales totals that were verified by Billboard, the Queen of pop brought in a whopping $13 million for her only 18 shows from May to August 2019. That’s  roughly almost a million per show.

With this huge feat, she has now bested previous Vegas Queens, Celine Dion, Britney Spears and others who have held much longer Vegas stints.

Janet Jackson impacts the Hot Tours tally dated Aug. 31.

Her Metamorphosis residency played its second and final leg from July 24 through Aug. 17, adding $8.9 million to its total gross, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore. Altogether, the 2019 residency grossed $13 million and sold 76,813 tickets.

Metamorphosis positions Ms. Jackson in the middle of a career upswing, averaging $722,000 and over 4,000 tickets per night. Her 2011 Number Ones Tour marked the quietest trek of her career, playing theaters around the U.S. after several arena tours in the 1990s and early 2000s. Since then, she has adjusted ticket prices and returned to sold out arena and amphitheaters. Jackson’s Vegas shows further improve upon the 2015 Unbreakable Tour ($626,000/night) and 2017-19 State of the World Tour ($559,000/night), up from 2011’s $450,000 average.

That pacing places the legendary singer (and dancer, songwriter, producer, and actress) among the biggest Vegas performers of this decade, ahead of Celine Dion’s $704,000 opening pace (2011), Britney Spears’ $679,000 (2013) and the Backstreet Boys’ $593,000 (2017). Metamorphosis only ran for 18 dates, making it significantly less forceful run than Dion’s 427 and Spears’ 248, but sets Jackson up well for a healthy run of upcoming fall dates in Australia (Nov. 8-17) and Hawaii (Nov. 20-21).

At this rate, Vegas might want to give Janet a call to come back for another go round for 2020.
