Janet Jackson takes 35 of her best friends on the road next year
Janet Jackson will undergo her “largest ever world tour” next year. The routing? It’s up to the fans.
“This tour will be different from the those of past in the way I will perform music exclusively from my No. 1s. You’ll hear all the hits,” Jackson says in a message to her fans on the website.
Jackson is allowing the fans to decide, in part, the routing by picking which city they want her to play from a list on roughly 60 worldwide locales on janetjackson.com.
Jackson adds, “Whenever possible I will perform in venues that allow me to be up close and personal so i can be with you in a much, much more intimate setting.” (Read: in case tickets don’t sell well, we’ll scale down and just call it an “intimate” setting. However, we think Jackson’s tour will be a very strong arena tour.)
As she notes, it’s been a busy several months for Jackson: she released a 34-track greatest hits set, appeared in “For Colored Girls” and “Why Did I get Married,” as well as wrote a song, “Nothing” for “Married. She’s also written a book, “True You,” about her journey, including her weight and self-esteem struggles.
