After her first road tour in 10 years, Toni Braxton has found a new place to call home.

The six-time Grammy-winner will take over as the headliner at the Flamingo hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip in August, replacing Wayne Newton, whose run wraps up July 1.

Beginning Aug. 3, the R&B singer will perform six nights a week through March 2007 in a full-scale musical production called, “Toni Braxton: Revealed.”

“This is a show where I’m going to reveal myself to my fans, because (there are) a lot of things don’t know about me,” Braxton, 38, told The Associated Press on Thursday.

“It’s going to be sexy,” she said. “It’s going to be intimate.”

The production will take fans through her musical career beginning in 1992 and feature a high-energy fashion show likely with clothes from designers Dolce & Gabbana, she said.

“I’m not a Britney Spears or a Janet Jackson, but I have a little rhythm,” she said.

In March, Braxton embarked on her first tour in a decade to promote her latest album, “Libra.” The tour ends July 3 in Houston at the Essence Music Festival.

Braxton, who is best known for hits such as “Breathe Again,” “You’re Makin’ Me High” and “Love Shoulda Brought You Home,” has starred on Broadway in “Aida” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

It was not clear what would happen to Newton, 64, who started a limited run at the Flamingo in November that was extended several times. Newton’s publicist could not immediately be reached for comment.
