Ladies, whip out your dollar bills: “Magic Mike Live” is headed to Las Vegas.

Channing Tatum announced the news about the live strip show on Facebook Wednesday in a video starring several “shirtless men and puppies.”

“God knows we have enough gentlemen’s clubs in this world, so let's start the first gentle-ladies’ club -- or maybe not so gentle, depends on what you're into,” Tatum said in the clip.

Tatum, who starred as the titular character in “Magic Mike” and “Magic Mike XXL,” is directing the show with Alison Faulk, who choreographed the dance numbers in the movies. The actor won’t be starring in the live show, but he told Cosmopolitan that he may make a guest appearance.

“If I'm ever in shape enough to do that again, I'll absolutely go out and have a fun night or two,” Tatum said.

"We want to create a place for women that is their gentlemen's club, their Playboy club. It shouldn't be sleazy. [You shouldn't feel] nervous to go there because you feel unsafe; we want to create the polar opposite of that," he added.

“Magic Mike Live” will launch in March 2017 at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. According to a press release, the show “promises to take the male revue, a staple of Las Vegas bachelorette parties and girlfriend getaways, to new heights." 

Guests will enter "Club Domina," a real life version of the club at the foundation of "Magic Mike XXL," where men cater to women's desires. The nightclub will feature three bars, an integrated stage and seating for 450 guests.

Are those excited squeals we hear?
