Janet Jackson’s number one hit “That’s The Way Love Goes” from the album ‘janet’ has been chosen as the song dedicated to Abu Dhabi. The pop icon is bringing her largest ever world tour Janet’s NUMBER ONES: Up Close and Personal Tour to the YAS Arena on October 13, kicking off a new season of Yas Island Show Weekends. Janet Jackson is dedicating a number one song to each of her fan-suggested stops.
Of her upcoming engagement in Abu Dhabi the Icon has said, “Hey Abu Dhabi, I’m gonna take you places you’ve never been before. . . That is why I’m dedicating ‘That’s the Way Love Goes’ to all my fans in your beautiful city. See you soon!”
‘That’s the Way Love Goes’ became Janet Jackson’s biggest number one singer ever in the United States staying at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks, in addition to winning a Grammy Award for Best R&B Song in 1994. The tour, in which the superstar set out to perform a selection of songs from her impressive 35 number one hits, has recorded SRO engagements throughout Asia, North America and Europe and due to such enthusiasm from fans and critics the NUMBER ONES: Up Close & Personal Tour has been extended to expand past the original 35 cities.
In addition to her rigorous tour schedule, Janet has headed record-setting fundraising events for HIV/AIDS research and treatment, including hosting recent balls in Cannes and Vienna, which topped all prior fundraising amounts of those events. Prior to her upcoming tour appearance in Canada, Janet entertained in France for a giant fund-raiser where she became the first female artist ever to perform at the Louvre in the extraordinary IM Pei glass pyramid, raising funds for that most famous of museums.
The Icon’s current tour differs from her previous concert schedules of years past in that she will perform music exclusively from her chart topping CD NUMBER ONES. There is also a focus on venues that will allow Janet to be “up close and personal,” in a much more intimate settings. In each selected city, Janet will offer something different to her performance so no show will be the same. This tour is Janet Jackson more revealed, more intimate, and more personal than ever before.
Janet will also be selecting the first fan winner of the contest in voting for the each of the selected cities. The winner will be announced on www.JanetJackson.com and they will receive an autographed copy of NUMBER ONES and an autographed copy of her upcoming book "True You" (in stores now). Her New York Times bestseller True You, published by Karen Hunter Publishing, an imprint of Gallery Books at Simon & Schuster is currently in stores and is continuing to climb the charts. Janet's first book reveals her unique, insider's perspective on dieting and exercise-from her past, present and her future. True You chronicles Janet's lifelong struggles with weight and self-esteem. The book is a self-help/esteem book where Janet uses anecdotes from her real life to illustrate the power of self-esteem and how she struggles and her continued growth as an artist and a woman.
