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."
Now, Jackson will make up the canceled dates from the "Unbreakable World Tour" starting Sept. 7 in Lafayette, La. before moving on to Philly in November. Jackson will also play the Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem on Nov. 11. The full list of tour dates is below:
