Janet Jackson adds Houston and other Texas stops to Unbreakable concert tour
The pop superstar will visit the Toyota Center on January 23, 2016, with appearances in San Antonio on January 21 and Dallas on January 24.
The Texas cities are part of 27 dates added to the second leg of her tour, in addition to 39 shows in the U.S. and Canada previously announced. The tour begins on August 31 in Vancouver and ends March 9, 2016 in Ft. Lauderdale.
This will be the seventh tour for Miss Jackson (if you're nasty) and her first since 2011's Number Ones, Up Close and Personal World Tour, which included a stop at Reliant Stadium (now NRG Stadium) during RodeoHouston.
On June 22, the pop and R&B icon released the first single, "No Sleeep," from her upcoming 11th studio album — her first in more than seven years — set to debut in the fall. The track entered the charts on the Top Ten on the Urban AC — currently at No. 8 — and Billboard Hot R&B Songs — currently No. 13.
During the now-49-year-old's lengthy career, Jackson has won six Grammy Awards, as well as a dozen American Music Awards, nine MTV Music Video Awards and 33 Billboard Music Awards — not to mention dozens of other accolades, along with one much-discussed faux pas — the infamous "Nipplegate" wardrobe malfunction incident with Justin Timberlake at the 2004 Super Bowl in Houston.
Ticket sales for dates on the second leg of Jackson's tour begin July 20. American Express Card Members and fans who pre-order Jackson's upcoming album on her website receive pre-sale access for premium seat tickets before the general public starting Tuesday, July 14, at 10 am through Sunday, July 19, at 10 pm.
