Janet Jackson is hitting the road this summer for her "Black Diamond World Tour."
On Monday (January 10), the living legend, who was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, announced the start of "a new era," revealing her upcoming tour dates and her plans to release her forthcoming 12th studio album, also titled Black Diamond, this year.
"Hey U Guys! I’ve heard all your wishes and now from my lips to your ears. I’m working on my new album and going on a brand new World Tour this summer! Both titled ✨ “Black Diamond” ✨ ," Janet wrote on Instagram. "Black Diamonds are the toughest of all the diamonds, the hardest to cut. I see that as the hardest to hurt or destroy. There is a lot that I have endured. I see myself as a Black Diamond in its purest form. I’m a rock, I have ruff edges but I keep moving forward. I want to show you my strength as well as give you strength."
The "Black Diamond World Tour," which kicks off in Miami on June 24 and travels across North America, will feature music from Janet's Black Diamond album and a special performance of her multi-platinum LP Rhythm Nation 1814 in honor of the album's 30th anniversary, according to a press release.
As fans know, Janet released a remix collection for the album this past September.
