*Janet Jackson will embark on a world tour next year that will feature performances of her No. 1 singles — and nothing else.
The artist, who released her retrospective LP “Number Ones” earlier this year, will play 35 dates across the globe where she will perform each of her 35 chart toppers.
In a blog on her official website, she said: “During the past several months I’ve had such wonderful experiences. I’ve released my Number Ones CD…and throughout this time I’ve heard from you – my fans – whom I cherish dearly.
“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.”
She added: “Wherever possible I will perform in venues that will allow me to be up close so that I can be with you in a much more intimate setting.”
After fans submitted their suggestion to the star’s official website, the first city announced for the jaunt is Hong Kong, where she will perform next year on Feb. 14. Further dates are expected to follow shortly.
