SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY February 8th, 2016 —: Music icon, multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner and multi-platinum selling artist Janet Jackson has added Saratoga Springs, New York to her highly anticipated Summer Leg of the Unbreakable World Tour. The performance is scheduled for August 26, 2016 at Saratoga Performing Arts Center.

 

The UNBREAKABLE WORLD TOUR, which commenced in North America on August 31st, 2015 to rave reviews and accolades, sees the return of one of the world’s most influential entertainers on the live stage, in support of her album, Unbreakable, from Rhythm Nation/BMG. Unbreakable, which recently became the music icon’s Seventh #1 album, made music history by making Janet Jackson one of only three artists to achieve a #1 album in each of the past four decades. The album’s initial offering, “No Sleeep,” became 2015’s longest reigning #1 single on the Adult R & B Chart (Mediabase), spending 12 weeks at the top spot. The Unbreakable album constitutes a historic re-teaming of the iconic performer with producer/songwriter superstars Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.  The Unbreakable release comes on the 30th anniversary of their groundbreaking collaboration on Ms. Jackson’s “Control” album.

 

The Unbreakable Tour returns to North America on May 14, in Las Vegas following the tour’s European Leg which is set to commence on March 30th in the U.K. and includes dates in such countries as Germany, France, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium and more. The North American leg of the tour will run throughout the summer with 50+ dates scheduled.
