Janet Jackson is hitting the road in 2023 and bringing Ludacris along for the ride. On Monday (Dec. 12), Jackson, 56, announced that she will be taking her legendary talents on a 33-city expedition entitled the Together Again Tour, featuring Luda as a special guest. This will be her first tour in four years.
“I’m going back on tour and yes, we will be together again very very soon…I miss you guys so much and I cannot wait to see you,” she expressed on an Instagram Live stream from her official account.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee’s tour will commemorate three significant anniversaries for the legendary pop star, including her 50th anniversary in entertainment, 25 years of The Velvet Rope, and 30 years of janet. Ms. Jackson will also debut new music during her commemorative trek.
The Together Again Tour will commence on April 14, 2023, in Hollywood, Fla., and travel across 22 states before ending in Seattle on June 21, 2023. Fans of the icon will be able to snag tickets to the musical celebration starting on Dec. 13 on Ticketmaster’s official website.
Elsewhere, the Grammy award-winning songstress recently inducted her longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday (Nov. 5).
The trio collaborated on 1986’s Control album, which served as a precursor to the new jack swing era, and helped cement Jackson’s status as music royalty.
“I’ve got to be the luckiest guy in the whole world. I just had Janet Jackson induct me into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame,” Lewis, 65, said as he accepted his award.
Tickets for the Together Again Tour go on sale on Friday, Dec. 16 at 11 a.m. local time on LiveNation.com.
Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Tuesday, Dec. 13, starting at 11 a.m. local time, until Thursday, Dec. 15, at 10 p.m. local time through the Citi Entertainment program.
