Janet Jackson will return to UK shores for the first time in half-a-decade later this year, as part of her extended Together Again Tour.

After making her name alongside her famous family in The Jacksons during the 70s, the musical icon soon launched her solo career and became one of the hottest names in the industry during the 80s and 90s.

The five-time Grammy winner has created hits such as Miss You Much, That’s The Way, Nasty, and the namesake for her current tour, Together Again. She last appeared in the UK in 2019 to perform her 20-song-long Glastonbury set.

In April 2023 she kicked off her Together Again Tour, commemorating her 50-year-long career, which will finally conclude the North American leg in Arizona in July.

Jackson will then jet off to Europe in September where she will perform in Birmingham, London, Manchester and Glasgow with special guest, rapper Wyclef Jean.

The Oscar-nominated singer-songwriter announced the UK dates in a social media post where she thanked fans for ‘making this my most successful tour to date’.

‘Europe I know it’s been a minute since we’ve seen each other but the wait is no longer,’ she said in the video.

‘I cannot wait to see you guys, I miss you so much. We’ve had so much fun with this show so can’t wait to come and have some of that fun with you guys.’

She will play Birmingham’s Utilita Arena on September 27, London’s O2 Arena on September 28, Glasgow’s Ovo Hydro on September 30 and Manchester’s Co-op Live on October 1.

The acclaimed singer, who was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019 for her ‘successful and groundbreaking’ career, will end her tour in Amsterdam in October.

This year also marks 20 years since Jackson made headlines for her 2004 Super Bowl performance in which fellow artist Justin Timberlake exposed her breasts to the world in a poorly-received stunt.

In 2022, Jackson discussed the impact of the career-shaking moment in her Lifetime documentary titled Janet Jackson.

The documentary also touched on her relationship with late brother Michael Jackson, and featured appearances from stars such as Missy Elliot and Janelle Monae.

Prior to Glastonbury, Jackson performed in London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2011, making this tour leg across England and Scotland a true rarity.

Tickets for Janet Jackson’s UK tour will go on general sale from Friday, May 3, at 9am. They will be available to buy here.
