We're READY.

2020-02-11

Janet Jackson is heading back out on the road after announcing a new world tour.

The five-time Grammy Award-winning singer, 53, confirmed the first North American dates for her all-new Black Diamond World Tour on Monday (10 February), promising there will be European dates to follow.

Even more excitingly, the show is billed as an all-new production which will feature new music from Jackson's highly anticipated, forthcoming album 'Black Diamond'.

 

As well as performances of tracks from across her five decades in music, the Black Diamond World Tour will also include a special 30th anniversary performance of her 1989 album Rhythm Nation 1814.

British fans will be doubly excited for the announcement after the European leg of Jackson's 2015/16 Unbreakable World Tour were postponed and eventually scrapped after the singer fell prgnant with her first child,
