Janet Jackson's upcoming worldwide jaunt is the most anticipated pop tour of the summer, according to a recent Billboard.com poll. The tour, which comes in support of her chart-topping Virgin album, "All for You," garnered 39% of 5,553 votes.

Jackson easily outdistanced her nearest competition, MTV's TRL tour, which took in 25% of the vote. That tour will feature Destiny's Child, Eve, Nelly, Jessica Simpson, Dream, and 3LW. Jackson's arena tour will play 45 North American markets, wrapping Oct. 13 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, before heading to Europe for 25 shows in 10 countries. The TRL outing kicks off July 18 in Albany, N.Y., and will run through a two-night finale Sept. 21-22 in Honolulu.

Madonna came in third in the voting, garnering a 20% share of votes cast. Few votes separated the four final tours, as the Backstreet Boys / Shaggy / Krystal trek pulled in 6%, followed by Dido and Travis with 4%. 'N Sync and Eden's Crush grabbed 3%, while the Aaron Carter / A*Teens / Leslie Carter tour managed just 2% of the vote.
