Janet Jackson Returns to Australia to Continue Tour
Yesterday, Nov. 3, Janet Jackson returned to Australia in order to continue her Number Ones: Up Close and Personal tour. Jackson had to postpone a handful of scheduled concerts Down Under in order to be with her family in Los Angeles. She felt it was important to be with her loved ones during the finals moments of the manslaughter trial of the Dr. Conrad Murray, the man who many are holding responsible for the death of Michael Jackson.
When Janet (Ms. Jackson if you're nasty) landed in Sydney, she appeared to be in good spirits as her entourage guided her through the airport. Wearing all black, Jackson looked like she was trying to keep a low profile as she touched down in the Australian capital. Now that the shows are back on, fans of Janet can witness the pop icon perform a slew of her No. 1 hits live, including classic tracks like 'Miss You Much,' 'Rhythm Nation' and 'Nasty.'
Last night, Jackson performed in Melbourne and the songstress is performing for three nights (Nov. 5, 6 and 8 ) in Sydney.
Originally, Jackson had released a statement about postponing the shows. She said, "When I planned these shows, the schedule in California was completely different. After talking with my family last night, I decided we must be together right now… This saddens me in so many ways." We're glad Ms. Jackson is back on track.
