DETROIT – Janet Jackson is scheduled to visit Detroit as part of her "State of the World Tour" this October at the new Little Caesars Arena.

Jackson will perform at 8 p.m. Oct 29, with doors opening at 7 p.m.

Ticket prices will range from $29.50 to $125. They will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, according to Olympia Entertainment.

Jackson rescheduled the concert after she announced she was pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy.

Jackson, 50, and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, welcomed their first child in January after a "stress-free healthy delivery," a representative for the singer said.

Last year, Jackson announced that she was postponing her tour amid speculation that she was pregnant.

"I thought it was important that you be the first to know," she said in a video. "My husband and I are planning our family, so I'm going to have to delay the tour."

Jackson then went under the radar, though she was spotted shopping in September and appeared to be pregnant in photos published by "Entertainment Tonight" on the show's website.

The singer publicly confirmed the she was expecting in an interview with People in October.

"We thank God for our blessing," she told the publication.

There are reports the superstar singer split from her husband of five years shortly after giving birth to their son.

Jackson's representatives have not commented on the current state of her marriage to Al Mana, a Qatari businessman.
