Janet's second tour stop is set for Saturday, September 9 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. "I was just so surprised, shocked that I didn't have a black out from being so excited". It was confirmed to Us Weekly that the singer will be dedicating her performance to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and is donating the show's proceeds to local flood relief charities.

Her tour kicks off Thursday at the Cajundome in Lafayette, La.

She says she will keep her commitment to play the concert, but doesn't want to just hit the stage, do the show and hop back on the tour bus.

She wrote in her caption: 'Hey u guys. "I thought it was important that you be the first to know". My husband and I are planning our family, so I'm going to have to delay the tour'.

Jose strengthened on Thursday into a risky Category 3 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale, the U.S. At the time, the center of Katia was about 185 miles (295 km) east of Tampico, Mexico.

The settlement, in which fans received an undisclosed amount for the postponement of her tour after she became pregnant with son Eissa, is one legal worry off of Janet's plate as she sorts out her divorce from billionaire ex-husband Wissam Al Mana.

In May 2017 she finally broke her silence on the matter in a video for her fans where she confirmed the split.

In addition, Jackson mashed-up Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" instrumental into a remix of "What Have You Done for Me Lately", adding another modern twist into a standout opening night moment. "It's actually easy and it's fun", he said last month. "So, we'll see you Friday!"

It was also the same day that a lawsuit against Jackson and Live Nation entertainment over a series of cancelled concerts in 2016 was revealed to be settled by TMZ.
