The State of the World Tour is set to hit 56 cities starting September 7.

Tickets for the Grand Rapids show go on sale on Friday, May 5, 2017 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available at the Van Andel Arena and DeVos Place box offices, online at Ticketmaster.com, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Jackson has taken the past year to enjoy pregnancy and motherhood, and is now ready to return to the live stage to give Janet fans everything they could hope for in one epic concert event. The State of the World tour is a continuation of the Unbreakable tour and will include fan favorites from her chart-topping ‘Unbreakable’ album, an array of her socially conscious music she’s released throughout her career, and other smash hits and soon-to-be released new tracks with a state of the art live production!
