July 5th, at Vancouver’s 16,000-seat GM Place, will mark the first of 56 performances in the United States and Canada, concluding on October 13th in Denver, Colorado’s Pepsi Center Arena.

In January, Janet was honored with The Award of Merit at the American Music Awards. In February, MTV hosted nearly two-dozen artists, who paid tribute to her on mtvICON. In March, she released her tenth Billboard Hot 100 #1, “All For You”, which has been #1 for four weeks. Now, as the highly anticipated release of All For You flies off the shelves in its first week of release, Janet stands poised for another groundbreaking year.
The tour will feature eight dancers and seven musicians performing Jackson’s enormous chart-topping catalogue of music, including songs from All For You. Award-winning set designer, Mark Fisher and lighting designer Abbey Holmes will work with Jackson, who has set the standard for innovative stage shows.
