Today, Janet Jackson has announced her 2023 headlining tour of North America. It will mark the singer’s first concert tour since 2019 (after having to postpone her 2020 scheduled tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic), when she celebrated the 30th anniversary of Rhythm Nation 1814.
Dubbed the “Together Again” tour, Jackson will be bringing out Ludacris for the entirety of the run, making for an entertaining night of music and one that you will certainly want to catch.
Jackson’s latest album, Unbreakable, was released in 2015. She reissued 1997’s The Velvet Rope earlier this year to celebrate it’s 25th anniversary.
Jackson began teasing the tour on Sunday when she took to Twitter and cryptically told fans to join her for a “special announcement” Monday morning. During an Instagram Live announcing the tour, she teased, “There will be new music.”
Jackson also expressed how much she missed seeing her fans and how excited she is to be on the road again.
“You guys have no idea, I’ve missed you so much, so much, and I can’t wait to be with you. I’m so excited,” she said.
The tour launches April 14th at the Hard Rock Live Arena in Hollywood, Florida. From there, Jackson will hit up major North American cities, such as Nashville, Tennessee; Toronto; Dallas; Phoenix; Portland, Oregon; Baltimore; and Milwaukee. She’ll wrap the 33-date trek on June 21st at the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Washington.
Tickets will go on-sale this Friday, Dec. 16th at 11 am local venue time via Live Nation. Citi cardmembers will be able to access a special presale via citientertainment.com beginning Tuesday at 11 a.m. local venue time, which will run until Thursday, Dec. 15th at 10pm. local time.
