It’s good news for Janet Jackson fans as the music powerhouse is back on tour.
In December 2021, she announced she would be hitting the road again on a tour titled Together Again with support from rapper Ludacris.
Named after her iconic single from her 1997 studio album The Velvet Rope, both of which peaked at No. 1 in the US, it seems Janet’s tour will celebrate her hugely successful career.
On April 14, the When I Think Of You hitmaker kicked off the North American leg in Hollywood at Hard Rock Live.
With her loyal fanbase, Janet’s new tour has been a trending topic on social media.
But where is she performing? And what is on the setlist?
Janet Jackson had to add more tour dates due to the demand
Due to high demand, Janet announced extra shows after the first batch went on sale.
“Thank u guys for showing this tour so much LUV. Because of you, we had to add some more dates ?,” she wrote on Instagram while attaching the official promotional poster.
After kicking off the tour in Hollywood at Hard Rock Live, Janet will perform a second show at the same venue on April 16 before going across North America for the next two months.
