Reno, Nev. – Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) is honored to welcome global music icon Janet Jackson on Sunday, Oct. 1 to the Grand Theatre.

Her music and artistry has opened doors through which other top artists have followed, many acknowledging her impact on their musical perceptions.

The legendary entertainer began her sold out “Unbreakable” tour in August 2015, but just one year ago she reached out directly to fans via Twitter with news of her focusing on starting a family, confirmed months later with the arrival of her first child. Since, she has taken the past year to enjoy pregnancy and motherhood, and is now ready to return to the live stage to give fans everything they could hope for in one epic concert. The “State of the World” tour is a continuation of the “Unbreakable” tour and will include fan favorites from her chart-topping “Unbreakable” album.
