Janet Jackson Gets Emotional at Unbreakable World Tour Opener in Vancouver [VIDEO]
Janet Jackson kicked off her Unbreakable World Tour at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia on Monday (Aug. 31). The R&B icon got very emotional during her return to the concert stage and broke down in front of thousands of concertgoers.
It’s been four years since Ms. Jackson toured the world, but last night, the 49-year-old singer was overwhelmed by the massive standing ovation that she received before the start of the show. In a fan video, Jackson stares into the audience and wiped tears from her eyes. “Thank you, so much” she told the cheering crowd before starting her show.
According to The New York Times, the 49-year-old singer, who was dressed in all-white, performed three new tracks from her upcoming album, Unbreakable. Along with “No Sleep,” Jackson unveiled another new song, reportedly titled "Burn It Up," which featured a guest appearance from Missy Elliott (via video) and a Motown-inspired track near the end of the show.
Jackson also took fans on a fun, musical trip down memory lane, performing hits from her extensive catalog including renditions of "Scream," "Control," "When I Think of You," "Rhythm Nation," "Anytime, Anyplace," "Miss You Much," and "That's the Way Love Goes," among many others.
