“Janet Jackson Kicks off Together Again Tour with 40-Song Setlist”
Janet Jackson has officially started her Together Again Tour, which is her first time on the road in almost four years. The pop icon’s concert series began on Friday, with a 40-song setlist, at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Fla. Fans were treated to a live performance of the Damita Jo track, marking its debut, and a few other previously unheard tunes. The five-act concert’s third and fourth acts featured remixes of “Together Again,” “I Get Lonely,” “Doesn’t Really Matter,” “All For You,” and “Do It 2 Me.” Finally, Janet wrapped up the show with her signature hit “Together Again.” The concert tour also includes Ludacris, who joins her in various cities across North America, including New York, Los Angeles, Austin, and Toronto, before concluding in Seattle on June 21.
The Rhythm Nation singer had last toured in 2019 for her 30th-anniversary celebration of the Rhythm Nation 1814 album, followed by a Las Vegas residency, Metamorphosis. Her State of the World Tour, which featured three legs, promoted her Unbreakable studio album from 2017 to 2019. The Together Again Tour marks her 50th anniversary in entertainment and the 30th anniversary of her Janet LP, according to a release.
Janet, who is 56 years old, announced the tour’s details in December, expressing her excitement to meet her fans once again after a long break. She also talked about missing her fans in an Instagram video. The Together Again Tour features stunning choreography and costumes from her previous performances, including the iconic Rhythm Nation crop top.
In a recent interview with Essence, the pop legend revealed that her priority was being a mother to her six-year-old son, Eissa, whom she had with her ex-husband, Wissam Al Mana, in January 2017. She stated that she loved music and would return to it someday, but for now, being a mom was her primary focus.
Janet’s Together Again Tour is off to an incredible start, and her fans are delighted to see her back on stage, performing her chart-topping classics.
