Janet Jackson just announced her 56-city State of the World global tour, starting September 7, and she's going to be making a stop in Denver.
The tour started back in 2015 in support of her Unbreakable album. She took a break from her travels a year ago, when she announced she would be having her first child. Now, she's back in action.
She announced the tour on the following YouTube video, in which she discusses her baby, her weight gain and her separation from her husband. Then she breaks the good news: She's back on the road.
The Denver concert will take place at the Pepsi Center at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 17.
