Is Janet Jackson Returning With a ‘State Of The World Tour’ in 2017?
Janet Jackson's Unbreakable World Tour faced several bumps — including a big, baby-sized one — during its turbulent run from 2015 to 2016, from postponed tour dates due to surgery, "scheduling difficulties" in the UK and Europe, and, eventually, a pause on the entire tour to start a family with now ex-husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana.
But is Miss Jackson already getting the gig back on the road?
Take it with a grain of salt (you know how eager stans can be...), but according to some ATRL members, their postponed Ticketmaster tickets just updated today (Apr. 14) with new dates — and possibly even a new tour name: The State Of The World Tour, a Rhythm Nation 1814 song title.
One screenshot from a user shows their 2015 Fort Lauderdale date now moved to December 11, while another user noticed that their Portland ticket is now rescheduled to September 29. LiveNation also allegedly created a placeholder page for a State Of The World Tour, although the link only provides a 404 Error page — for now.
Janet last performed live in Dubai last year at the Meydan Racecourse for the Dubai World Cup.
"I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can," she breathily promised us before the postponement.
Is it actually coming true? This Promise Of You? Stay tuned.
