Yes!!!!

It has just been announced that Janet Jackson is bringing her wildly successful JANET JACKSON Number Ones, Up Close and Personal Tour to North America.

What makes this tour so spectacular is that none of the shows are are major, arena-type venues. This is one of those once and a lifetime tours that gives you a more intimate experience with a major icon.

Janet wanted to show her gratitude to her fans and all those who voted for her to bring her tour to the USA, so she released this statement:

"I thank my fans who have voted and helped me choose the cities we are announcing today. Each of you are so important to me. These concerts will be different from anything I have ever done. I will be as up close and personal as possible. These concerts are not about special effects. This is a love affair between me and those of you who have supported me and my work for all these years. I'll be singing and dancing from my heart. The music will all be songs that you've made number ones for me. Let's go!

In each city I want to meet 20 young leaders who are changing their communities for the better. Please contact janetjackson.com so that I will know who is making a major difference in your city. I’m asking my fans and their friends, Parents, relatives, neighbors and teachers to nominate five people to qualify as one of the 20 under 20 in each place I will perform. At each concert the 20 people chosen and the person who nominated them will be VIP guests at my show. I will invite the 20 sponsors and the 20 winners to the concert and backstage. There are many young people changing the world and I want them to be recognized during my tour. I want them to be my guest at my show and they will come backstage as I learn from them how young people are changing the world. You all know someone who is making a difference, so get in touch. I love you all and I can't wait to be back on stage, I’ve missed you," –Janet

    so she can bomb again



  2. 2

    Welcome back Jan, we've missed you.



  3. 3

    Janet is trying to milk off her brother's death as much as possible. Why is she playing such small venues? Because nobody wants to see her breast-popping ass!

    She's the best !



  5. 5

    WILDLY SUCCESSFUL? YOU'RE JOKING RIGHT! SHE CAN'T SELL STADIUMS OR ARENAS, AND LET'S NOT FORGET HER LAST TWO TOURS WERE CANCELLED! I GUESS JANET IS JOINING MARIAH ON THE "NOBODY WANTS TO SEE ME LIVE!" LIST OF ARTIST. SHE SHOULD GET THE HINT, ONCE YOUR FANS DON'T SHOW UP TO THE SHOWS, IS TIME TO DO SOMETHING ELSE.



  6. 6

    Janet Jackson cannot sell-out arena sized venues any more. That is the reason for the smaller scale. It's a smart decision, considering.

    And, no, she is not exploiting her brother's death, she is trying to remain viable in a toughening market. Good luck, Janet.



  7. 7

    There will be great songs. Unfortunately they will be lip-synched

    I am Happy for her FANS :)



  9. 9

    Who gives a rats ass! That fur pushing "Blachgama" whore should go back to the 90's where she belongs.



  10. 10

    Re: phillymonster – Ummm, I HIGHLY doubt she's trying to milk off her brother's death. She actually does love her fans and loves to perform. I'm glad she's doing this tour.



  11. 11

    shame she does not come to miami!!!!!!!!!!!



  12. 12

    I'll go if she ditches the following:
    1) The crappy S&M routines with a male audience members during "Tie me Up"
    2) The phony crying on "Again"
    3) She keeps her hair short in favor of extensions
    So… I guess I'll probably not go.

    She could perform in the more intimate venues in 500 more North American cities. The ones who would so snap up the tickets because they don't get every single bigger artist would be those who don't live in larger New York or Toronto but with over 1 Million residents, like Philly, San Diego or Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton. Those cities would be appreciative.



  14. 14

    I'm so excited! I was lucky enough to see her during the "Discipline" tour!! I'll be seeing you in San Francisco Janet!! ;)

    Re: phillymonster – Janet is not trying to "milk off her brothers death" as you so nicely put it.. She is an iconic star in her own right, she never "milked" Michael when he was alive so she dosnt need to start now. She is doing nothing that she has never done before.

    Did she ever leave the US? No honestly, not being sarcastic.



  17. 17

    Re: MJ fan59 – Excellent news hey? :D i have fingers toes and everything else crossed she will come to London!! lol



  18. 18

    Haha..The SPIN on this is so hard I feel like a ~Whirling Dervish weeeeeee!!!!

    Exactly! I don't know where this stuff come's from..



  20. 20

    Re: Bree – Her opening shows begin in Asia starting the beginning of next month ;)



  21. 21

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – I know!! Once again I hope she comes to London so you can see her. I'll have everything crossed for you too lol If it's any consolation… Michael was coming to you though ;) ;( Remember I used to say you would need to share with me and other Americans? LMAO We would switch off haha



  22. 22

    Its a miracle! Perez has actually chose a flattering picture of my idol for once. Janet is not milking Michaels death, she was doing tours before he died you know. Life goes on. She should retire now or something? looser



  23. 23

    Is she coming to Spain?



  24. 24

    Re: MJ fan59 – OMG i was thinking the exact same thing about when we used to joke about sharing him lol



  25. 25

    its weird to me when people hate on others. take a second and realize that energy is a reflection of your own existance! :)

    I would go see this show. She is a great entertainer, I respect her



  26. 26

    Re: old aunt Judy – all my old aunts wear fur and they're not nearly as pretty as you, why so bitter? WHORE watch your mouth oldtimer, Ill take out your falsies and wash your mouth out with soap.



  27. 27

    i will see her..the closest thing to MJ. 1st old school song i ever heard was "nasty"



  28. 28

    Yay! I love Janet and I'm sure she'll do amazing. You all are just bitter haters that have nothing to do than to sit behind a computer and spew hate on someone who doesn't even know you exist.



  29. 29

    Rock on, Ms. Jackson!
    You're the best!



  30. 30

    Is she going to talk about her pedophile brother who victimized several children.
