Stop everything you’re doing: pop legend Janet Jackson will be performing at the Dubai World Cup on March 26.

The multi-platinum selling, Grammy-award winner singer-songwriter revealed on Instagram and Twitter that she’ll be taking to the stage at the world’s richest horse race at Meydan.

She said, “I am excited to perform for the global audience at this year’s Dubai World Cup. The entire Unbreakable company is looking forward to traveling with me to Dubai and being part of one of the world’s most prestigious events.”

If that wasn’t enough, she told the world that days after closing the races she’ll be kicking off the European leg of her Unbreakable World Tour in the UK.

This will be her first performance in about four months after she was forced to postpone her tour due to ill health.

The Dubai World Cup has had a string of great female singers, including Aussie pocket-rocket Kylie Minogue last year and Jennifer Lopez in 2014. Now they’re making it a hat-trick with Ms Jackson, whose 2015 album Unbreakable was her seventh to shot to the number one spot in the US.

Her performance is set to start at 10pm and tickets will start at Dhs450.
