“Hey u guys. I’m so excited for the State of the World Tour,” she wrote. “We r in rehearsal mode. See u guys in 1 month!”

The upcoming incarnation of the tour fills the void of the Unbreakable tour, which Jackson canceled last year due to her pregnancy. Her State of the World dates run on through the end of 2017, with stops, including Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and L.A.’s Hollywood Bowl.
