It has just been announced that Janet Jackson is bringing her wildly successful JANET JACKSON Number Ones, Up Close and Personal Tour to North America.
What makes this tour so spectacular is that none of the shows are are major, arena-type venues. This is one of those once and a lifetime tours that gives you a more intimate experience with a major icon.
Janet wanted to show her gratitude to her fans and all those who voted for her to bring her tour to the USA, so she released this statement:
"I thank my fans who have voted and helped me choose the cities we are announcing today. Each of you are so important to me. These concerts will be different from anything I have ever done. I will be as up close and personal as possible. 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. Let's go!
In each city I want to meet 20 young leaders who are changing their communities for the better. Please contact janetjackson.com so that I will know who is making a major difference in your city. I’m asking my fans and their friends, Parents, relatives, neighbors and teachers to nominate five people to qualify as one of the 20 under 20 in each place I will perform. At each concert the 20 people chosen and the person who nominated them will be VIP guests at my show. I will invite the 20 sponsors and the 20 winners to the concert and backstage. There are many young people changing the world and I want them to be recognized during my tour. I want them to be my guest at my show and they will come backstage as I learn from them how young people are changing the world. You all know someone who is making a difference, so get in touch. I love you all and I can't wait to be back on stage, I’ve missed you," –Janet
