Legendary Motown pop musicians The Jacksons are opening a residency as part of the RockTellz & CockTails series at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Jacksons have been signed to perform 40 shows Feb. 20 to April 27; the run coincides with rocker Meat Loaf‘s own RockTellz residency that reopens Feb. 13 in the same showroom.

In the RockTellz series, the artists not only perform many of their hit songs, but also share personal stories of their musical careers.

“We are thrilled to be a part of RockTellz & CockTails at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino,” Jackie Jackson said in a statement. “As a Las Vegas resident, I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this amazing series at one of the most iconic entertainment destinations in the world. My brothers and I can’t wait to take the stage and bring our hits – and the stories behind them – to life for the fans.”

The Jacksons had nine No. 1 hits and 14 Top 10 hits, including “ABC,” “I Want You Back” and “I’ll Be There.” The group are made up of brothers Tito, Jackie, Jermaine and Marlon. The original lineup as The Jackson 5 also included younger brother Michael, known around the world as the King of Pop, who died in 2009.

RockTellz creator Adam Steck said he is honored to offer The Jacksons as the second residency act for the series.

“Audiences are going to love hearing their unbelievable stories and of course, the songs that have helped them become so treasured and adored worldwide,” said Steck, who is also CEO of SPI Entertainment.

RockTellz & CockTails Presents The Jacksons is scheduled to perform at 9:30 p.m. Thursdays – Sundays in the PH Showroom.
