Janet Jackson confirms a 35-date world tour

After a considerable hiatus from touring, Janet Jackson has announced that 2011 will see her perform 35 live shows across the globe. 

In a statement on her official website, she wrote:

"Many have asked when I will tour again - well today I'm really excited to answer that question, and I announce my largest ever world tour, celebrating 35 number ones."

"This tour will be different from those of the past in the way that I will exclusively perform songs from my number ones. You'll hear all the hits in 35 cities, which I want you to help me select."

The first date to be announced is on Valentine's Day, February 14, in 2011. The gig will take place in Hong Kong with further dates to be revealed through the star's site over the next few months.
