Janet Jackson has clearly missed the road, almost immediately embarking on a tour following her separation from London-based Qatari businessman, Wissam Al Mana.
The star also knows just how much her fans have missed her, adding new dates to her wildly successful STATE OF THE WORLD tour so that as many supporters as possible will have a chance to catch the star live and in color.
“Global superstar Janet Jackson will return to arenas and amphitheaters across the U.S. this summer with an extension of her outstanding and in-demand State of the World Tour,” reads a press release from Live Nation. “The outing will showcase some of the legendary entertainer’s biggest dance anthems and powerhouse ballads that have become staples of the music icon’s career.”
