Janet Jackson is taking a worldwide approach ahead of the release of her hotly anticipated new album.
Last year saw the superstar singer rock US audiences on her ‘State of The World Tour’ as well as a number of notable festivals.
Now, she’s set to slay the stage at one of the most globally revered spectacles – Glastonbury in the UK.
Full story below…
Per The Sun, the diva has signed on the dotted line to perform at the 2019 instalment of the festival of festivals (which takes place June 26th through to June 30th).
Quoting a source close to the deal, the report read:
“Janet is relaunching her career in a major way this year and thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
She has never performed at Glastonbury but she knows what a massive deal it is.
It is looking like she will perform on the Sunday but her exact slot is to be confirmed. Organisers are still booking acts and arranging the schedule but she is really excited to be back.”
Per the same source, the Glasto slot will come amidst other shows the star will mount in the Euro region; news that is sure to delight her legion of loyal (and patient) supporters.
Jackson, who last performed a UK concert in 2011, has amassed 38 top 40 singles in the UK over the span of her 40 year career. She’s been showered with accolades aplenty and will, this March, receive an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
Other names set to perform at Glastonbury include Kylie Minogue and Stormzy.
Granted a formal announcement is still pending, this is a huge coup for Janet. Hopefully, she’s ready to roll with her album come said time because she’s securing potent promo platforms that would be wise to attach her project to.
