Tickets for new dates of Janet Jackson’s extended “State of the World” tour go on sale Tuesday.

Although Jackson’s critically-acclaimed tour wrapped in December, she added new summer dates that begin July 11 in Austin, Texas.

Additional dates include stops in Arkansas; Cincinnati; Syracuse, New York; Hersey, Pennsylvania; Saratoga Springs, New York; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina; Miami; and Tampa.

Jackson will also headline what’s expected to be a monumental year for this year’s Essence Festival. Erykah Badu and Jill Scott will headline Friday night, Mary J. Blige on Saturday and Jackson will close the three-day festival on Sunday.
