Janet Jackson is bringing her Number Ones, Up Close and Personal tour to the U.S. and Canada this spring, the star announced today (Jan. 10).
The trek kicks off Mar. 7-8 with a two-night stand in Las Vegas and wraps with another pair of shows Apr. 22-23 in Las Vegas. The setlist will be culled exclusively from the hits that grace Jackson's 2009 compilation, "Number Ones."
"These concerts will be different from anything I have ever done. I will be as up close and personal as possible," Jackson said in a statement. "These concerts are not about special effects. This is a love affair between me and those of you who have supported me and my work for all these years. I'll be singing and dancing from my heart. The music will all be songs that you've made number ones for me. Let's go!
Jackson is also slated to release "True You," a book reflecting on her experience with diet and exercise, on Feb. 8.
