It’s Christmas in July for pop fans: Janet Jackson has announced a third Chicago date on her Unbreakable World Tour, the singer’s first round of shows in four years supporting her first new album in seven. The show is set for Friday, November 6 at the Chicago Theatre. Tickets ($50–$200) go on sale Monday, July 20 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster, the Chicago Theatre box office, and by phone at 800-745-3000.
Additionally, fans who preorder Jackon’s new album at janetjackson.com can access pre-sale tickets starting tomorrow at 10 a.m. through Sunday (reads a note on the site: “All concert attendees are special, but music owners are VIP’s. Love Janet.") AmEx cardholders also get pre-sale access.
The announcement comes after ludicrous demand for Jackson’s original two-night stand at the Chicago Theatre (November 3–4), which sold out “instantly” last month according to a press release (scalpers appear to have gotten a lion’s share of tickets). Jackson’s as-yet untitled new album drops later this year. Check out the lead single, “No Sleeep,” below.
