Jackson certainly knows how to create a tempest!
The superstar shocked her fans around the world Monday morning by announcing plans for a world tour and new album, both entitled Black Diamond.
Predictably, Twitter is aflutter!
In a prepared statement, Jackson said:
“Black Diamonds are the toughest of all the diamonds, the hardest to cut. I see that as the hardest to hurt or destroy. There is a lot that I have endured. I see myself as a Black Diamond in its purest form. I’m a rock, I have ruff edges but I keep moving forward. I want to show you my strength as well as give you strength.”
Jackson knows her audience, and knows how to sell a concert ticket and album, doesn’t she?
The artist’s representatives confirm that international dates are forthcoming. In the meantime, tickets for her North American dates go on sale to the general public February 13. It looks like she’s playing Sacramento August 17 and will be in San Jose the next night.
Grab your tickets quickly, as the best seats are bound to sell out quickly! If you’ve not caught Jackson live, she delivers a hell of a show.
