Janet Jackson is back in action and performing at a caliber above pop stars many years her junior. The 51-year-old icon kicked off her State of the World Tour on September 7th 2017 with a stop in Lafayette, Louisiana, and she brought an impressive, career-spanning setlist and some of her fiercest choreography in years. Proceeds from the September 9, 2017 concert at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas were donated to relief efforts supporting evacuees of Hurricane Harvey; Janet met with Houston mayor Sylvester Turner and evacuees at the George R. Brown Convention Center prior to the performance. The tour is set to conclude with a concert at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on December 17, 2017. State of The World Tour tour is a continuation of 2015’s Unbreakable World Tour, which was postponed after Janet announced that she was pregnant. The show received a new name and an updated setlist that includes many fan favorites as well as cuts from her 11th LP, 2015’s Unbreakable. The show includes fan favorites from her chart-topping 'Unbreakable' album, an array of her socially conscious music she's released throughout her career, and other smash hits and soon-to-be released new tracks with a state of the art live production!
Janet had an emotional moment on stage in Houston on September 9th, which came after her performance of the song “What About,” from her 1997 album “The Velvet Rope.” When it was over, she stopped, put her hand over her face and began to cry on stage. It took Janet a moment to compose herself, with the encouragement of her audience, before saying to the crowd, “this is me.” Brother Randy Jackson who's assisting Janet on her current tour and stayed by his baby sister's side to support her during hard times, told People that Janet has a painful divorce and that she was verbally abused and felt like a prisoner in her home. Wissam Al Mana's businessman’s attorneys issued a statement saying he will not be responding to the “particular and deeply hurtful allegations”.

One of the Jackson family tragedies that has been forgotten is the murder of Tito’ Jacksons ex-wife, Delores “Dee Dee” Jackson mother of their three sons, Taj, Taryll and TJ aka 3T.

The real victim was our mom who was murdered. We all love and miss you."
