I want to show you my strength as well as give you strength. — I love u guys so much and I’m #SoExcited to share this new era with you.

Janet Jackson on Monday announced her summer Black Diamond World Tour, which includes shows at SAP Center in San Jose and the Golden One Center in Sacramento in August.
The tour shares its name with Jackson’s forthcoming new album, though a release date was not specified.
It will differ in production from Jackson’s last Bay Area outing at Chase Center in San Francisco, to which our review was mixed. Jackson is expected to perform new songs from her forthcoming album Black Diamond, set for release later this year. She will also perform songs from her 12 multiplatinum albums, including Rhythm Nation 1814, which marked its 30th anniversary in 2019.
The tour kicks off on June 24 and includes a Golden One Center show on Aug. 17 and SAP Center show on Aug. 18.
Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Thursday at 12 p.m. at LiveNation.com. Reserved seats range from $50 to $225, not including additional feels.
