Five-time GRAMMY®️ Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame®️ Inductee Janet Jackson is returning to the road after a four-year hiatus. The songstress personally announced her highly-anticipated ninth concert tour, Together Again to fans on social media this morning.
The 33-city tour will kick off Spring 2023, with support from rapper Ludacris, featuring a collection of Jackson’s biggest chart-topping hits, plus long-awaited new music. The outing not only celebrates Jackson’s 50th anniversary in the entertainment industry, but will highlight milestones for two of her most critically acclaimed and fan-beloved albums – 25 years of The Velvet Rope, and 30 years of janet. Jackson’s chart-topping breakout hit album Control also celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2021.
Jackson’s last tour, State of the World, ran from 2017 to 2019 on three legs, taking the star worldwide to celebrate the 30th anniversary of her genre-pushing album, Rhythm Nation 1814. Jackson also famously headlined the 2022 ESSENCE Festival of Culture this summer.
Shocking fans by going live on Instagram, the songstress sat perched in front of a Christmas tree, excitedly welcoming viewers into the room for a big statement.
“I have a big announcement to make,” she shared with fans after building anticipation for over 4 minutes. “I’m going back on tour. And yes, we will be together again very very soon.”
“Yes, there will be new music,” she continued. “I know all of you ask ‘where’s the new music? Where’?” she said jokingly in a mocking voice. Jackson also revealed that she’ll be bringing rapper Ludacris along for the ride.
“I miss you guys so much, I cannot wait to see you. It’s going to be so much fun,” she continued. “You have no idea. I am so excited!”
