If you kept your Janet Jackson tickets from her postponed dates last year, you’ll finally get to use them.

Jackson will embark on the “State of the World” tour on Sept. 7 in Lafayette, La., and hit 56 cities during her four-month run.

Atlanta fans will have to wait the longest, as the tour is scheduled to wrap at Philips Arena at 8 p.m. Dec. 17.

Tickets for the new dates, priced at $29.50-$125, will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 5. Tickets purchased for her “Unbreakable” tour will be honored.

Jackson hasn’t been out of the news much in recent months. Her son, Eissa, was born in January and in April, Jackson announced she was splitting with the baby’s father, Wissam Al Mana.

The singer last performed in Atlanta in September 2015 with a show at Chastain Park Amphitheatre.
