Janet Jackson Announces North American Tour Dates
To determine the destinations for her 2011 Janet Jackson: Number Ones, Up Close and Personal tour, the legendary singer polled her fans to select the 35 cities she would visit. Internationally, those cities include Singapore and Hong Kong, but on Monday (Jan. 10) Jackson announced that the tour will reach North American shores in March.
The North American leg of the intimate tour will kick off in Houston on March 4, and span from New York to Los Angeles, before wrapping up in Las Vegas on April 23. Jackson intends to perform only her number one hits for the duration of the 35-city tour. "These concerts will be different from anything I have ever done. I will be as up close and personal as possible," Jackson explained via her website. "These concerts are not about special effects. This is a love affair between me and those of you who have supported me and my work for all these years. I'll be singing and dancing from my heart. The music will all be songs that you've made number ones for me."
