Janet Jackson fans bumped into an unexpected special guest in the audience at the PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday night (May 12). Tom Cruise was in attendance, much to the delight of those around him — including Jackson, who shared a snapshot on Saturday of the two of them together backstage.
“T, it was so good seeing you and nice spending some time together,” she captioned the photo.
Meanwhile, fans were spotting Cruise around the venue last Friday night. In cell phone pictures and clips uploaded to social media, the actor can be seen posing with concertgoers and waving to those saying hello as he made his way through the crowd.
Both stars had major breakthroughs in 1986 — Jackson with her hit-laden album Control; Cruise with his box-office smash Top Gun.
Jackson announced her current tour back in December, saying, “I’m going back on tour and, yes, we will be together again … I miss you guys so much and I cannot wait to see you.”
