Global music icon and multiple Grammy Award winner Janet Jackson announced that she will resume her world tour in September, after postponing 75 dates last year so that she could start a family.

Jackson's tour, newly renamed as the "State of the World Tour" from "Unbreakable," will have a 56-city run beginning Sept. 7 in Lafayette, Louisiana, and ending in Atlanta, Georgia, Dec. 17. She will make multiple stops in Texas and California, hit all four corners of the U.S., visiting Seattle, Portland, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Boston, Philly, Memphis and Jacksonville. She will travel to the north of the border to include Vancouver and Toronto, and end at the final stop in Atlanta at Philips Arena. The tickets for the newly scheduled dates will be available from May 5. Jackson's promoter, Live Nation Entertainment, said in its website that tickets held for previous "Unbreakable" tour events that are now re-scheduled will be honored at the new dates.

Jackson announced the tour dates on Twitter in a video message. She started by saying: "Hey you guys. It’s me, Jan, just in case you don’t recognize me since I have put on a few since I had the baby.” Her brother interrupted in the background by saying, "More than a few."

“Can you please be quiet, Randy?” she said. “Nobody’s talking to you. Thank you.” Jackson instantly turned her attention back to fans, praising her baby boy, who she welcomed Jan. 3. Then, she announced about the upcoming world tour.

She touched upon the topic of her separation from estranged husband Wissam Al Mana, a Qatari businessman: "I just want to keep it real for you guys for a second – yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.”

Jackson and Al Mana were quietly married in 2012, and preferred to stay out of the limelight during their time together. Even during her postponed "Unbreakable" world tour, Al Mana stayed away, likely due to his demanding business work. He manages 55 companies — a Middle Eastern empire that spans fashion, media, engineering and real estate, reports said.

Regarding the change in the name of the tour, Jackson said, "It's not about politics. It's about people, the world, relationships and just love."

She ended the video message by thanking her fans for their "patience" while the tour was on hold.

According to TMZ, Jackson's frequent cancelation of her "Unbreakable" tour left her fans annoyed about not getting concert refunds. One of them, Tiana Adams, filed a suit against Live Nation saying the organization is trying to get away without issuing refunds by repeatedly treating the tour as "rescheduled" and not "cancelled."

Last year April, Jackson had said in a video: "I'm gonna have to delay the tour," and announced that she and Al Mana were planning their family. "Please if you can try and understand that it's important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor's orders." The "Unbreakable" tour marked Jackson's first large-scale concert since 2011. However, the project has been facing problems since the beginning, with the singer having to cancel her tours for personal reasons several times, reports said.
