Is Janet Jackson Returning With a ‘State Of The World Tour’ in 2017?

Janet Jackson‘s Unbreakable World Tour faced several bumps — including a big, baby-sized one — during its turbulent run from 2015 to 2016, from postponed tour dates due to surgery, “scheduling difficulties” in the UK and Europe, and, eventually, a pause on the entire tour to start a family with now ex-husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana.

But is Miss Jackson already getting the gig back on the road?

Take it with a grain of salt (you know how eager stans can be…), but according to some ATRL members, their postponed Ticketmaster tickets just updated today (Apr. 14) with new dates — and possibly even a new tour name: The State Of The World Tour, a Rhythm Nation 1814 song title.

One screenshot from a user shows their 2015 Fort Lauderdale date now moved to December 11, while another user noticed that their Portland ticket is now rescheduled to September 29. LiveNation also allegedly created a placeholder page for a State Of The World Tour, although the link only provides a 404 Error page — for now.

Janet last performed live in Dubai last year at the Meydan Racecourse for the Dubai World Cup.

“I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can,” she breathily promised us before the postponement. We have reached out to reps for Janet Jackson and LiveNation for comment.

Is it actually coming true? This Promise Of You? Stay tuned.
