In this June 28, 2015, file photo, Janet Jackson accepts the ultimate icon: music dance visual award at the BET Awards in Los Angeles. In a video posted on her Twitter account May 1, 2017, Jackson confirmed a rumored split with her husband and says plans to resume the world tour she called off more than a year ago during her pregnancy with her son, who was born in January.

R&B superstar Janet Jackson will bring her “State of the World” tour to Philadelphia this fall, with the date serving as a makeup to Jackson’s canceled “Unbreakable World Tour” Philly show from last year.

Jackson will perform at the Wells Fargo Center on Nov. 13, a release states. Tickets for the performance go on sale May 5 at 10 a.m. via the Wells Fargo Center website and box office, or by phone at 1-800-298-4200.

“I decided to change the name of the tour: State of the World Tour,” Jackson said of the tour in a video message to fans. “It’s not about politics. It’s about people. The world. Relationships. And just love.”

The “Rhythm Nation” hitmaker kicked off her “Unbreakable World Tour” in support of 2015’s Unbreakable in August that year, but announced in December 2015 that she would postpone the tour’s second North American leg in 2016, which included an August 24 stop here in Philly.

Jackson, 50, later canceled the tour’s European leg due to pregnancy. The star welcomed her first child, Eissa, back in January. She also confirmed a rumored split from her husband, Wissam Al Mana, in a her video posted this week, saying “we are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.”
