As a result of massive sellouts for performances in Asia and North America, the Janet Jackson "Number Ones: Up Close & Personal Tour" is being expanded. Jackson's largest ever world tour will now be vastly extended to even more global cities in addition to the currently scheduled performances in London, Paris and Monte Carlo. The North American leg of the tour, which is currently underway, will be continued in the fall after a scheduled spring and summer in Europe.
Originally slated as a world tour of 35 cities to match the 35 number one singles from her double-disc album, Number Ones, Janet (AKA Miss Jackson if you're nasty) will now greatly exceed her planned dates. She will supply the demand! This high demand from key venues on several continents will bring the singer around the world and back again. Several of the concerts on the initial schedule were sold-out in the first 10 minutes of availability.
The star, addressing the new scope of her concert commitment, observed, "When creating music or a tour, I draw from what is going on in my life and hope that the fans relate to it. I am excited to know that the fans are having a great time at my shows and are asking for more. Thanks for all the love and your input on where I should take the show next. I'll see you soon!"
