Janet Jackson ended her eighth concert tour on a high note. The 52-year-old singer reportedly earned an estimated $44 million from her State of the World tour.
State of the World, which originally began in 2017 under the name Unbreakable World tour, was listed as one of Pollstar’s Year-End Top 100 Worldwide tours in 2017, bringing in an estimated $33 million. Jackson would go on to postpone the tour after she announced her pregnancy.
After welcoming her son, Eissa Al Mana, in 2017, Jackson kicked off the State of the World tour shortly afterward. It was heralded one of Pollstar’s Year-End Top 200 North American Tours list in 2018, earning another $11 million.
Jackson is looking to bring her touring success into 2019. She recently announced Metamorphosis, her first Las Vegas residency.
The pop icon is slated to grace the stage at Park MGM for 15 shows from May to August 2019. The five-time Grammy winner will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of her multi-platinum selling album Rhythm Nation 1814.
Jackson confirmed the news on Instagram writing, “Hey u guys, I’m so excited to announce my new Vegas residency, “Metamorphosis.”
