Janet Jackson Plans Comeback Tour

After cancelling her 2020 ‘Black Diamond’ shows due to the Covid pandemic, Janet Jackson is reportedly set to launch a comeback tour and is said to be working on staging shows which will include new songs.

On Sunday (10.16,) a music source told Britain’s The Sun “Janet has been preparing for her music comeback for a while and is gearing up for a performance that packs a punch.” “She is so grateful to her fans for sticking by her while she has had a few years out to start a family and wants to thank them with an amazing production.” “It will focus on the reissue of her 1997 album ‘The Velvet Rope’ as well as some brand new material. It’s a massive deal.”

During a party last week to mark the 25th anniversary of her record ‘The Velvet Rope,’ the five-time Grammy award winner who’s has sold 100 million records was quoted by the publication as saying:

“It’s so funny because I see the fans asking, ‘When are we going to get Black Diamond? Will you please release?’ “Sometimes things happen that you don’t expect to happen, and you have to figure things out, or you’re in a space in your life when you have to take a step back and take a break for a minute.” “Even though it’s something that I absolutely love, it still is my work, my job. “There will be music at some point. Exactly when? I can’t say just yet, but there will be.” “I love it too much not to do it.”

At the 25th anniversary party in Shoreditch House, London, Ms Jackson said that the first time anyone showed appreciation for her music was when a fan waved one of her CDs at her in traffic.

“I would say out of all the albums that I created, and especially with Jimmy (Jam) and Terry (Lewis – the record’s producers), it (‘The Velvet Rope’) was the most difficult album for me,” she said. “I was going through so much in my life and it was so deep, trying to figure out who I am and where I stand.” I didn’t know if my fans would like it but one of the best moments in my life connected to this album?” “The day that it was released, I was in traffic coming from Malibu and someone honked their horn, and I happened to look over and there was a girl in the car and she held up ‘The Velvet Rope’ CD and she smiled at me.” “It made me feel so good. That was the first person to acknowledge to me that, ‘Yeah, you did something that I really do appreciate’, and 25 years later it being No1 again today?” “Thank you so, so much for this. Thank you Jimmy and Terry for always being my two dads. You were always there for me through thick, thin and the worst.”

Debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200, and yielding #1 singles ‘Together Again’, ‘I Get Lonely’ and ‘Every Time’, ‘The Velvet Rope’ had a massive global impact, and has been listed as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time’.
