DETROIT (WWJ) – Janet Jackson will bring her “Number Ones, Up Close and Personal Tour” to the Fox Theatre on Tuesday, Aug. 16 at 8 pm. Tickets go on sale Saturday, May 14 at 10 am.

The legendary icon took the suggestions of her fans to heart and after her start in Asia, she will be bringing the tour to the United States and Canada. Jackson will be performing songs from her 35 number one hits in 35 global cities.

This tour will differ from her previous concert schedules in that she will perform music exclusively from her chart topping Number Ones.

In each selected city, Jackson will offer something different to her performance so no two shows will be the same. This tour is Jackson more revealed, more intimate and more personal than ever before.

Jackson is even doing something with this tour that she has never done before.

“In each city I want to meet 20 young leaders who are changing their communities for the better. Please contact so that I will know who is making a major difference in your city. I’m asking my fans and their friends, parents, relatives, neighbors and teachers to nominate five people to qualify as one of the 20 under 20 in each place I will perform. At each concert the 20 people chosen and the person who nominated them will be VIP guests at my show. I will invite the 20 sponsors and the 20 winners to the concert and back stage. There are many young people changing the word and I want them to be recognized during my tour,” Jackson said in a statement.
