Janet Jackson coming to the Straz Center in Tampa
On Sept. 11, 2001, there were two big concerts in Tampa Bay that had to be canceled because of the day's terrorist attacks. One was the Cowboy Junkies at the State Theatre. The other was Janet Jackson at the Ice Palace.
Almost 10 years to that day, we've learned that Janet -- or Ms. Jackson if you're nasty -- is coming back to Tampa.
Janet Jackson will perform an intimate show for her Number Ones, Up Close and Personal World Tour on Dec. 4 at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa. She'll be performing all her greatest hits. Tickets start at $59.50, and will go onsale at noon Sept. 17. Click here for details.
Near as we can tell, it'll be Janet's first Tampa Bay performance in 10 years, since her 9/11 performance was postponed until late October of 2001.
