While the upcoming tour coincides with a series of anniversaries in Janet Jackson’s career — 30 years since the release of janet., 15 years since Discipline and her 50th year in the entertainment business — the 56-year-old Grammy-winner confirmed that new music is on the way and will be released and performed on the road.
“Yes, there will be new music,” she said. “I know all of you, ‘Where’s the new music?’ There will be new music and my special guest will be Ludacris.”
The 33-city tour kicks off in Hollywood, Florida on April 14 and will make stops in Orlando, Memphis, Nashville, New York City, Toronto, Detroit, Dallas Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland and other cities. The roadshow wraps up over two months later in Seattle on June 21.
Janet Jackson’s last album, Unbreakable, arrived in 2015. Earlier this year, she released a deluxe edition of The Velvet Rope to celebrate the album turning 25 years old. Ms. Jackson also released an eponymous four-part docuseries on A&E at the top of the year.
