Janet Jackson will be back to touring this fall, she announced on Monday evening.
In a video posted on her website, she revealed that she’ll pick up her postponed “Unbreakable” tour on Sept. 7 in Lafayette, Louisiana. She had previously postponed 75 North American and European dates due to her pregnancy. She birthed her son, Eissa, on Jan. 3.
Jackson added that she’ll be renaming the four-month, 56-city tour “State of the World,” named after a track on her album “Rhythm Nation 1814.” The superstar had previously teased the announcement with a countdown on her website, which ended on Monday.
“It’s not about politics,” she explained in the video. “It’s about people, the world, relationships, and just love… I cannot wait to see you on stage.”
She also gave an update on her baby in the video, calling him “so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving, such a happy baby,” and briefly addressed her split from Wissam Al Mana.
“This message was supposed to be about something else, but I’ll get to that in a minute,” she told fans. “I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second. Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.”
