Janet Jackson has added Texas to her upcoming "Unbreakable" world tour. The pop superstar will visit American Airlines Center in Dallas on January 24, 2016, following stops in San Antonio on January 21 and Houston on January 23.

The Texas cities are part of 27 dates added to the second leg of her tour, in addition to 39 shows in the U.S. and Canada previously announced. The tour begins on August 31 in Vancouver and ends March 9, 2016, in Ft. Lauderdale. 

This will be the seventh tour for Miss Jackson (if you're nasty) and her first since 2011's Number Ones, Up Close and Personal World Tour, which included stops at Houston's Reliant Stadium (now NRG Stadium) and Austin's Moody Theater.

On June 22, the pop and R&B icon released the first single, "No Sleeep," from her upcoming 11th studio album — her first in more than seven years — that is set to be released in the fall of 2015. Just two weeks after its release, the track entered the charts on the Top Ten on the Urban AC (currently at No. 8) and Billboard Hot R&B Songs (currently No. 13). 

During her lengthy career, the 49-year-old has won six Grammy Awards, as well as a dozen American Music Awards, nine MTV Music Video Awards and 33 Billboard Music Awards — not to mention dozens of other accolades, along with one much-discussed faux pas: the infamous "Nipplegate" wardrobe malfunction incident with Justin Timberlake at the XXXVIII Super Bowl in Houston.

Ticket sales for dates on the second leg of Jackson's tour begin July 20. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public starting Tuesday, July 14, at 10 am through Sunday, July 19, at 10 pm.
