Janet Launches Rock Witchu Tour

Published: Thursday 11th Sep 2008 by Sam
Janet Launches Rock Witchu Tour Pop superstar Janet Jackson kicked off her eagerly awaited ‘Rock Witchu Tour’ (her first in 7 years) in style yesterday at Vancouver’s GM Place.
The world renown singer, journeyed through 30 (yes, 30!) of her biggest hits, as well as material from her latest effort ‘Discipline’ during the high-octane dance-orientated show. Check out what the early reviews are saying, as well as more pics from the show below:
Vancouver Sun
Janet Jackson’s latest choreographed concert spectacle is an aggressive reminder to the world that she is a woman who has risen above fads and scandal (who can forget the famous Superbowl wardrobe malfunction?). It is a reminder that she is a trend-setter in her own right, a true diva, and a marvelous performer. {Click to read more}
The Province
She has raised her own standards, downplaying the sexual angle for a more athletic show that didn’t have a musician in sight. The emphasis was on action and dance, and seemed more natural to her. Any show following Janet Jackson into GM Place will find it difficult to match her. {Click here to read more}
The Globe & Mail
“It was satisfying: a fun, glitzy choreographed experience worthy of a woman who’s been in show business longer than most of the people in the audience have been alive. Bravo.” {Click here to read more}

    damn that woman can perform and “She may have sang along to backing tracks, but she didn’t lip-synch.” Rolling Stone said it she DID NOT LIP SYNCH ill even go against the backing track but no haters can speak now

    This tour is gonna be off the chain. She said she is going do a medley of all her hits and she fit them all into a routine. She’s had tons of hits so it should be interesting to see what the medley performance will look like.

    I’m brushing up on the lyric to “Don’t Stand Another Chance” “Say You Do” and “Young Love” because she’s added them to the setlist. Can’t wait for Saturday!

  22. ANT FROM CLEVELAND TO CALI September 11, 2008

    I ALWAYS FELT LIKE JANET JACKSON SHOULD HAVE TOURED BEFORE PUTTING OUT HER LAST TWO CDs…THAT WOULD HAVE RECONNECTED HER TO HER FANS…BUT AM SURE JANET NOT WORRIED ABOUT SELLING UNITS HER NAME IS BIG ENOUGH TO SELL CONCERT TICKETS WITHOUT A OPENING ACT…OF COURSE SHE NEVER WORRIED… JANET JUST SIT SOME WHERE AND LOOK PRETTY…ICON
