Janet Jackson Announces 56 City Fall Tour, “State of the World”

The news that many fans were speculating on has officially been confirmed by Janet Jackson through a personal video message!

After teasing the announcement with a countdown that launched on her website over the weekend, the pop icon has posted a video update about her plans to return to the stage.

Jackson opens the video with a sweet message about her baby boy, Eissa, and then confirms her divorce from her husband of five years, Wissam Al Mana.  Only touching on it briefly she says, “we are in court and the rest is in Gods hands.”

The news that everyone was waiting for though, Janet then reveals is true.  She will be continuing the tour that she had to cut short when she became pregnant last year. Originally titled the “Unbreakable World Tour,” the new trek will be called, “State of the World Tour,” named after the single off her classic 1989 album Rhythm Nation 1814.  The 56 city tour kicks off September 7 in Lafayette, Louisiana.

“I’m continuing my tour, as promised,” she said. “I’m so excited. I decided to change the name of the tour — State of the World Tour. It’s not about politics. It’s about people, the world, relationships, and just love.”
