Janet Jackson

8 p.m. March 9 at the BB&T Center, 1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise; 800-745-3000 or Ticketmaster.com. Tickets cost $35-$149.75.

This spot could have gone to Madonna (Jan. 23-24 at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena), but Jackson’s return, after an extended absence (her new album, "Unbreakable," is her first in seven years) and after Michael, is worth rooting for.

She once ruled the pop charts in the same way Swift does — the Toronto Star described a recent concert as "a sonic bombardment of wall-to-wall hits" — and it will be good to hear from her again.
