Embarrassing!

| Filed under: Janet Jackson

janet__opt.jpg

Janet Jackson made her "triumphant" return to Detroit on Tuesday, performing to an arena filled to 33% capacity!!!

The singer's troubled - on many fronts - Rock Witchu tour hit the Palace at Auburn Hills this week, and according to Billboard, attendance was at 8,000 people.

The capacity of the Palace is 21,000!!!!!!

This will likely be Janet's last solo arena tour ever.

In the future, expect to see her headline much much smaller venues!

    To bad you'll never have Fans.., just Freaks like you visited in NYC.

    Honestly, I don't know why people take anything that Perez says seriously. Most of the shit that he reports is false information anyway. Oh and by the way….Janet is and always will be a hell of a lot more fierce than you Perez and all of you haters. I've seen the show twice(in sold out arenas) and JANET WAS AWSOME! She's the best out there and there is nothing that you can say or do to change that.



  21. 21

    And if you want to talk about something embarrassing-Perez, please post another picture of yourself with your oily skin and that greasy blue hair. Please, Pizza face!!!



  22. 22

    People in detroit have other things to spend they're money on like crack!

    They probably thought her bitch ass wasn't going to show up.



  25. 25

    She looks awful - whats with the space suit? She looks like she is stuffed into that thing. Ugly ugly ugleeeee



  26. 26

    wow that just goes ta show her days are OVER, shes nothing like she used to be, like that special she did in Hawaii a couple years ago was AMAZINGGGG, but whats with that metal corsette thing?? it looks like she cant breathe

  27. D-Bag says – reply to this


    27

    She looks like 10 pounds of shit stuffed in a 5 pound bag.



  28. 28

    I went..they were right..it was DEAD in there! worse, you could upgrade by paying anywhere from an additional $30-$80 to get better seats..Half of the upper bowl was closed off with curtains..what they should have done was moved everyone from the top to the bottom that way it would have looked a lot fuller. However, she put on an AMAZING show! It was great..she didn't stop for 2 hours (except for wardrobe changes)…but I heard the opener was really bad..he just played music until she got on stage..didn't talk to the audience, hype them up or anything..glad i missed the opener haha



  29. 29

    This is what happens when has-been performers try to make a comeback.. and keep their image exactly the same as it was back when they were actually popular. This outfit is ridiculous (and she's much too chunky for it), the hair unattractive.. and she basically looks like an 80's reject. Either modernize your image and act or your fans will be few and far between.



  30. 30

    …the echo must have been deafening. Somewhat like her 'vocal prowess'.



  31. 31

    one word: thunderthighs



  32. 32

    I think Jan should perform smaller venues. The Jacksons always feel if they aren't performing in front of hundreds of thousands of people, it's all in vain. I realize in the past they have been known for their big concert venue performances, but I'd love to see them scale it down and try a whole different type of show, something more intimate and connected. Change isn't always a bad thing.



  33. 33

    Guess the Jackson family are losing another meal ticket.



  34. 34

    Wow!! That is really sad!!! My girls and I just went to see New Kids on the Block @ the Palace and that show was beyond packed!! Awesome show!!! BTW, txs Perez for the comp tickets!!! Our seats were AWESOME!!!!!!!!



  35. 35

    Yeah, they should have just been cool and had everyone move to the front….her show was pretty good, but nothing special

    I don't get this - I saw her last week in Dallas and she was awesome!! The place was sold out and everyone seemed to be having a blast. She totally rocked!!



  37. 37

    Perez you and anyone who believes this are retarded.First of all, the capacity for a concert at the palace of Auburn hills is 11,500.The capacity for a basket ball game is 21,000.For a concert,40 % of the seats aren't sold (All seats to the side and behind the stage top to bottom are empty for all concerts.I thought people were smarter then this.I went to her Toronto show an arena of 19,000,she sold 10,250 of a possible 11,090 seats.Wake the fuck up Perez?



  38. 38

    Stop showing that picture of Janet!!!! She looks awful. Icky.



  39. 39

    Re: Klynn – That's because,they don't count the seats beside/behind the stage.Capacity for an arena is usually 19-20k but for a concert it's usually 11-12k.Fourty percent of the seats aren't sold (seats that don't have a view of the stage.
    ————————————
    Therefor, 8,000 is about 70-80% full.And she has sold out Dallas,Vegas,Chicago,LA and has sold an average of 80% of the rest of her tour.She's doing fine.In fact she's averaging 1.5 million dollars in revenue for her shows(each).

    detroit motor city- thousands are laid off and more are getting laid off. the big 3 are going under, so who's gonna buy tickets?

  41. MP says – reply to this


    41

    Not to sound harsh, but the Detroit area isn't stable economically…more so than other cities. I'm not sure that 33% capacity would be true in other venues.



  42. 42

    Here's an example of what i was saying earlier.Madonna sold out her show in Toronto in a 19,000 seat arena.Tickets sold =11,000!Does that mean that she only sold 60%, no! Well maybe if Perez is telling the story!40% of the seats aren't used.It's like that for every concert.



  43. 43

    Who cares she is a washed up has-been. And her music suck more now than ever!



  44. 44

    She's so talentless, why would anybody go to see her?



  45. 45

    Re: Luce51 – I've seen her 7 times and would see her again, anytime she comes back to town.She's worth the price of admission and then some.



  46. 46

    Re: Swagger

    We are living in a generation of people that believe everything that they hear and read without getting the facts(the truth) for themselves! Sadly, a lot of these people believe all the shit that Perez makes up and they just run with it. In any event, Janet is still doing her thing and doing it well. Her show is the best out there and I think a lot of the reason that Perez pulls this bullshit out of his ass is because Madonna's jumprope/yoga tour is getting bad reviews. Give it up Perez!



  47. 47

    Re: Luce51

    Talentless?? If you think Janet is talentless then PLEASE tell me who you think has talent. I've been to this show twice and there is nothing talentless about it.



  48. 48

    This is really too bad (if it's true, you have to take anything Perez says with a grain of salt…) I saw her in Oakland and she was great. I didn't think she was as fierce as she had been in previous shows, but she still gave a great concert. The music buying people are so fickle… Keep your chin up, Janet,
    your fans still love you!



  49. 49

    Re: Luce51 – Talentless? 40 year career, over 100 million albums sold,3 #1 movies,nomintaed for an Acadamy award,11 number ones (2nd only to madonna for female artists of all time),28 top 10 hits.None of the flavors of today ie: Twitney,Rhianna,Ciara,Christina and others will never have that kind of longevity or put up numbers like that.



  50. 50

    a) her career has been dead for yrs
    b) ecnomy sucks and prices too high for her tix

    I'm with U Rude too much false information out there!!! I do believe Janet's concerts are doing just fine… I still don,t get it if you haters have a problem with Janet's talent or look… why bother to comment, just look the other way there are many people out there who appreciate Janet's talent… and do not waste there time on hating on other artists… IT'S NICE TO LAUGH BUT DON'T BE THE JOKE….



  52. 52

    Um, if there are 21,000 seats and 8,000 are filled that's 38% capacity, not 33%. Just so ya know.



  53. 53

    fuck dis has been.



  54. 54

    Re: Swagger

    Actually the capacity for an end stage concert at that arena is 23,000. It's a big place.



  55. 55

    I saw the janet concert and I had one of the best times ever. Alot of hater just write things down without the facts, if u were there u would see that she still has it. Her true fans know what I'm saying. JANET ROCKS!!



  56. 56

    OH MY GOD that is an ugly outfit.



  57. 57

    Someone needs to tell her that look went out w/the 80's and she needs to keep up w/the times.
    Also if she'd not cancel all the time perhaps people wouldn't be leery of buying tickets.



  58. 58

    Damn..not only that LL Cool J quit as her opening act…but keep ya head up janet



  59. 59

    That's what happens when you don't make good music for twenty-years.



  60. 60

    madonna is the only female act that can sold out her concerts.

  61. Shai says – reply to this

    @Julianne it,s a shame she has no real talent!!! She can,t dance, sing or act = no talent!!! I hope Madonna appreciates you all and your fixation on going to Janet's page to hate…. I certainly do not waste my time wasting any energy on Madonna I am neutral and like both of them as artists, but when it comes down to real talent you have to be kidding me when you say Madonna has more talent???????….
