Janet Jackson fans, you can all relax for a bit — Janet’s on the mend, and raring to go back on tour!
The iconic songstress, one of three singers to have a Billboard #1 album in each of the last four decades, posted an adorable photo to Facebook on Friday, in which she can be seen beaming alongside her husband, Qatari business magnate Wissam Al Mana.
“Took a break from tour prep to attend 10th Anniversary of Lazarides Gallery n [sic] London with my sweetie… See you soon,” she captioned the cute snapshot.
The mention of tour prep ought to be exciting news to Janet’s acolytes, inasmuch as it follows a string of axed concert dates over the past few months.
Last October Janet tweeted, “Hey you guys, I must rest my vocal chords. Doctor’s orders… Will be rescheduling Salt Lake and Denver.”
Then, on Christmas Eve, she pushed back her entire Unbreakable Tour, named after her new album “Unbreakable,” until “the spring.”
“I need you to know,” her Instagram post read, “I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery.”
She declined to elaborate on what the surgery was for, but assured the public, “Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets.”
The public’s had a bit of waiting to do, but on the basis of this new Facebook post, the period of anticipation is drawing to a close!
The first tour date listed on her website is March 30th, at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham (that’s the U.K. one, not the Alabama one). After that, there’ll be a steady stream of European gigs, until her tour finally lands Stateside on May 14th, at the Las Vegas Arena.
Wishing you a spectacular tour, Janet!
