Janet Jackson has revealed her 2023 tour of North America. The Together Again Tour will begin in April and continue through June with special guest Ludacris.

The tour is Jackson’s first since 2019 when she played a series of concerts to commemorate the 30th anniversary of her fourth album, Rhythm Nation 1814. Jackson was also scheduled to tour in 2020, but the dates were canceled due to the pandemic.

“You guys, I miss you so much, I am so excited to see you,” said Jackson in a video posted on her social media pages. “You guys have no idea. I’ve missed you so much, so much, and I can’t wait to be with you. I’m so excited.”

Kicking off on April 14, 2023, in Hollywood, Florida, the Together Again tour will run through 22 states before concluding on June 21 in Seattle.

Jackson released her most recent album, Unbreakable, in 2015 and recently reissued a 25th-anniversary edition of her sixth album, The Velvet Rope, in early 2022.

Released in 1997, The Velvet Rope, co-written and produced by Jackson, along with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and explored themes of feminine sexuality from a black woman’s perspective, and mental health, and domestic violence on “Go Deep,” which reached No. 1 on the Dance Club Songs chart, “Together Again,” “I Get Lonely,” “Every Time,” and “Got ‘Til It’s Gone.”

Following the release of her revealing self-titled documentary earlier this year, Jackson recently inducted longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
