Janet Jackson is making a long-awaited return to the UAE on March 26!
If you're a lucky ticket holder for the Dubai World Cup, you may get the chance to hear her old hits such as What Have You Done For Me Lately, Nasty, All For You andThat’s the Way Love Goes as well as new hits such as Burn It Up, her collaboration with Missy Elliott.
The six-time Grammy Award-winner released her Unbreakable album in October of last year, the first since the tragic death of her brother, Michael Jackson. After illness forced her to cancel shows at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and a surprise Christmas announcement that she had to reschedule on the dates of her Unbreakable tour to surgery, doctors have no given the go-ahead for the European leg of her tour.
The Dubai World Cup gig comes just before she is due to kick off her European tour in Birmingham, UK, on March 30 followed by the opening of her North America shows on May 14 in Las Vegas. Her last show wraps in Cleveland, Ohio on August 28.
She is likely to be accompanied by her Qatari business tycoon hubby Wissam Al Mana, who she married in 2012. Following her conversion to Islam, Janet vowed that she has moved on from performing her sexy dance moves and singing raunchy lyrics, but Middle East audiences can still expect a sizzling show!
