Following an overwhelming amount of sellout performances in North America and Asia, icon Janet Jackson, will be expanding her ‘Number Ones: Up Close & Personal Tour’. This tour marks Jackson’s largest world tour to date. Originally planned as a 35 city venture to match the 35 number one singles from Jackson’s double-disc album ‘Number Ones’, the outbreak of support from fans has prompted Jackson to add more dates. In addition to her currently scheduled performances in London, Paris and Monte Carlo, Jackson will be making stops in more cities.
The high demand for Jackson in a multitude of venues on several continents will take the jet-setting beauty to ever corner of the world. While the North American leg of the tour is currently underway, fans here will have to wait until the fall for the tour to resume due to recently scheduled European dates added for the spring and summer.
Ever-humble, Jackson commented on the outburst of love and support the tour has received, “When creating music or a tour, I draw from what is going on in my life and hope that the fans relate to it. I am excited to know that the fans are having a great time at my shows and are asking for more. Thanks for all the love and your input on where I should take the show next. I’ll see you soon!”

“This is one tour not to miss, a tour on which you can see a pop icon who has done it all, giving you her all.” -BET, Clay Cane.
“She did say it was going to be one that’s up close and personal. And boy, did Janet Jackson live up to that promise.”-Zaki Jufri I-S Magazine (Singapore).
