Janet Jackson: Pop star on road with ‘State of the World Tour’
Janet Jackson, whose new single, “Made For Now,” came out last month, is headed to Mohegan Sun Arena with her “State of the World Tour.” The six-time Grammy Award winner will perform there on Sunday, Sept. 30.
“Made For Now,” which features “Despacito” rapper Daddy Yankee, encourages listeners to be present in their lives and celebrate life because “We are made for now. Not tomorrow.”
A lively music video accompanies the new tune. It includes a whole community of people of all ages in a street-party kind of atmosphere, and lots of dancing. Jackson is in it, too, wearing a collection of outfits with a variety of striking African prints and accessories.
Jackson, 52, is famous for such hits as “What Have You Done For Me Lately,” “When I Think of You” and “Nasty,” among many others. One of the best-selling artists of all time, the singer-songwriter and dancer is also known for her elaborate stage shows. She is also an actor, author and philanthropist.
Her appearance in Connecticut comes one day after she is set to perform at the Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park.
