This unprecedented access to the live event has never been attempted for music owners, who in JANET's eyes are extraordinary, generous and loving. There will be more surprises for people who own JANET's music. There will be "No Sleeep" until she sees you in your city.

The UNBREAKABLE WORLD TOUR kicked off on Aug. 31 in Vancouver, BC and includes nearly 90 stops in cities such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Nashville, Cincinnati and San Diego. In their review from opening night, the New York Times says Janet is "an enduring influence across Pop and R&B" and "Her Unbreakable tour touched on as many hits as possible, grouping the songs by persona and tempo. She was the woman taking charge (funk), the joyfully loyal lover (upbeat pop), the ballad singer, the woman left lonely (midtempo R&B), the party girl (dance-club beats), the rocker (with guitar up front) and, in the end, the idealist."  USA Today says "Janet Jackson kicked off her Unbreakable tour with a superhuman performance" and "Janet slays..."; Rolling Stone hails Janet's performance as "Propulsive," and Vibe as "Flawless," also adding that the Queen of Pop has "...begun her global takeover."

Janet and the UNBREAKABLE WORLD TOUR were trending both on Twitter and Facebook throughout the day following the tour's opening night with fans quickly setting social media on fire upon seeing the first images from the tour and hearing some of the new music including a scorching song, "Burn It Up," with hip-hop innovator, Missy Elliot. The song was produced by long time Janet collaborators, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and will be featured on her forthcoming album, Unbreakable, due this Fall. The album has already been celebrated by critics, with Entertainment Weekly calling it "Powerful," Rolling Stone referring to it as "Soulful," and the New York Times exclaiming "Janet Jackson's Unbreakable is Right On Time."

The first single from the new album, "No Sleeep,entered the Top Ten on the Urban AC and Billboard Hot R&B Songs charts only two weeks after being released. This week, nearly 10 weeks after its release, the song, now featuring J. Cole is enjoying its third week at the #1 spot on Billboard's Adult R&B chart.

Janet Jackson, iconic music artist, multi-award-winning songwriter, producer, singer, Oscar and Golden Globe nominee and winner of the NAACP Best Sporting Actor award, publisher, choreographer, dancer, Number One New York Times Best Selling Author, businessperson, and philanthropist, is one of the biggest-selling, most influential artists in popular music history. Having won 6 GRAMMY® Awards, along with dozens of American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, BET honors, and Billboard Music Awards, Janet Jackson stands as one of the most prolific artists of all time with a string of hits that have left an indelible impression on pop culture. With sales of over 160 million records worldwide, her music and artistry have opened doors through which other top artists have followed, while acknowledging her impact on their musical perceptions.
