Janet Jackson has revealed her intention to hold a tour next year.
In the brink of the release of her new album, "20 Y.O.", scheduled on September 26, Janet Jackson delightfully has come up with a plan to return to the road around March 2007. "My three choreographers and I are working on ideas now for a world tour," she admitted. "…We'll begin rehearsing at the end of the year."
If everything goes smooth, the tour thereby will be the first since she held the last one, named All for You tour, in 2001-2002. Responding to the tour plan, Brad Wavra, touring VP at concert promoter Live Nation which had handled Jackson's two previous tours, expressed his optimism despite negative publicity surrounding the singer following the Super Bowl flap of 2004.
"I think that Janet got a bum rap," he remarked. "She's the antithesis of that person that was created in the media. If it hadn't been an election year I doubt it would have gotten played like it did."
Began her career in professional singing in 1982, Jackson altogether has released eight studio albums. For the tours she has held, the beauty has grossed $94 million and sold nearly 2 million tickets to just 161 shows between 1993 and 2002.
