Ciara‘s new album ‘Jackie’ is finally in stores! To celebrate and support the set, the Grammy winning singer has set sail on her aptly titled ‘Jackie Tour.’

Last night brought with it the first show at Chicago’s House of Blues.

Playing to a sold-out crowd, the 29-year-old served up electrifying performances of hits such as ‘Promise’ and ‘Goodies,’ and delighted with several new songs including ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love,’ ‘I Bet,’ and ‘That’s How I’m Feelin”.

As ever, TGJ has you covered. Fire filled footage awaits below…

    Take some Janet and Aaliyah and you’ll get the Jackin” Tour.
    .
    On the bright side, because Ciara is such a force on stage, she doesn’t need a huge budget stage.

    • TRUTH SERUM May 4, 2015

      Really??? Lol

    • #JACKIE May 4, 2015

      • Angie May 4, 2015

        Lol! I hate you mark but that was funny and i agree i dont see the hype around this child

  11. ratedxxx May 4, 2015

    Sold out tour huh..interesting
    So she is booking stages..interesting

    I’m not here for her album sales….because we all know the truth

    Even if her album does great on the charts people still going to call her a flop..a man

  12. Lake Erie May 4, 2015

    Just got my copy!!! Can’t wait to give it a listen.

    Sidenote: it’s funny how people are quick to try to call ciara Aaliyah or Janet. First of all, she is NOTHING like Aaliyah period. I’ve watched that girls videos and the styles are way off. Second, Janet? Yes, the influence is very evident. But I bet Janet isn’t mad at all. But Ciara is Ciara at the end of the day. I honestly think no one can compare besides Janet. That’s it. If someone can, let me know. Let’s go word for word because I have got to hear this. If thats the case, Chris Brown and Usher are knock off MJs lol. And they’re not. Influence? Yes, but they’re them. I’ve seen them do s*** that I’ve never seen MJ do. Same with ciara.

    • Lake Erie May 4, 2015

      So Mark, you argument is “Image” if i’m not mistaken. Do you know how many images are recycled? Images and execution is two different things. Thats what I thought you were insinuating. But those looks are not similar man, lol. They don’t look anything a like. You know how many female artist did that “Gothic” look in their videos? Pull those up, ciara wasn’t the first and sure in hell is not going to be the last. And the other pic was just pointless. lol. If you don’t like Ciara, thats cool. I’m not blowing down but I’m call on s*** that’s inaccurate. Now Janet? That’s my first lady, and it’s hella similarites and Ciara pays homage every time and Janet ain’t mad either. In fact, “I bet” (lol love saying that phrase now) lol. But I bet she glad some female are incorporating her influences into their music. Janet was out at a time where music was MUSIC and for artist like Ciara to keep the “Janet substance circulating” its a blessing. Wish I could say the same for others. Any other rebuttals Mark111?

    • coolness May 4, 2015

      Thank you! The Aaliyah and Ciara comparisons were inevitable at the start of the latter’s career seeing that she shared the tomboy look with breathy vocals and dance moves which stood out amongst the more glamorous female R&B/Pop stars of that time (think Bey and J.Lo). Stage-wise, she and Baby Girl are NOTHING alike as Ciara moves with the energy and athleticism that could rival the best of her male dance contemporaries (prime Usher and present-day Chris Brown). Aaliyah was smoother and more laid back – it was a 90s thing. Ciara’s more like Janet – only more loose in her delivery of dance moves and draws more inspiration from street dancing. It’s so annoying when haters try to discredit her by saying stuff like, “Oh, she’ll never be Janet” blah, blah, blah. Sure, she may never see major commercial success again but she’s still here doing her thing and has ALWAYS given Janet her props as a Queen. I do wish Ciara’s career was bigger than what it is today but hey, superstardom ain’t for everybody.

      • Lake Erie May 4, 2015

        You better speak that truth @Coolness! lol. And yes, I wish my girl was too. But if she keep this up, she’ll be half way there before she know it.

  13. metzo May 4, 2015

    Is that a night club? :/

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy May 4, 2015

      What’s wrong? Are you afraid that your fave will be irrelevant? Let’s be honest; Beyawnce is only known as being a dancing stage monkey, and now someone who can dance better is finally getting some shine…

      • Molly May 4, 2015

        Lol ooop

      • Mark111 May 4, 2015

        … well she has a point.

      • Unbiased May 4, 2015

        Girl Bey ain’t worried about a Ciara, she’s a cute girl that can dance, but dont do too much. She could be Bey’s back up dancer..

      • Lake Erie May 4, 2015

        Bey’s backup dancer?????? LMAOOOO!! Now Bey ain’t crazy. Trust shes not.

      • Molly May 4, 2015

        @LakeErie lol beys ass will get upstaged.

      • Jewel May 4, 2015

        Beyonce is more than just a dancer. What about vocals and all round stage presence.

      • Lake Erie May 4, 2015

        @Molly Right! lol!!!

  14. Angie May 4, 2015

    She’s a good performer and i dont think rihanna fans should be commenting on anything performing

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy May 4, 2015

      Rihanna isn’t a performer; that’s not why she’s famous. Rihanna is known for her hits and being effortlessly cool. There in two different lanes

      • Jewel May 4, 2015

        Lol. Weak excuse for someone with basic talent and smoke and mirrors. You still should not be talking about performances.

  15. diabetes unbothered May 4, 2015

    Lmao, idk how artist that have been flopping for the majority of their careers even go on tour. Lol at her and Kelly Rowlands performance budget. They gross less from an entire tour than what beys budget for one single city show. Easy to sell out a 1,500 tour with avg ticket prices of $32. Lmao at hey grossing 5 million in 1 show while cerror gross 400k with a whole tour. Cerror last album only sold 130 k to date how is she even on tour??? Oh the comedy lol

  16. Lake Erie May 4, 2015

    SMDH, i feel like I might have to drag some queens on this post today. (ugh, felt weird typing that lol, but I have to speak yal language). But I’m not. This yo day CiCi!!!! Turn the f*** up!
    Sidenote: I read on her twitter that she’s adding a FINAL day to her tour in Vegas, so does this mean that will be the end of her tour that day? I thought she was adding a second leg? Cuz I hope she’d come to my city.

  17. Solange, The Sponge. May 4, 2015

    Poor thing can’t even stretch let alone dance with that little a** stage !

    • diabetes unbothered May 4, 2015

      Lmao so true. Even Kelly had a little room to place her water bottle. # theStruggle

    • Lake Erie May 4, 2015

      Yal both on some bulk s***. Dream and Kelly was supposed to come to my city but Kelly canceled cuz she was doing x-factor. Same size stage as the HOB in my city. Yal fried.

    • Lake Erie May 4, 2015

      Yal both on some bulls***. Dream and Kelly was supposed to come to my city but Kelly canceled cuz she was doing x-factor. Same size stage as the HOB in my city. Yal fried.

  18. Angie May 4, 2015

    Lol! I hate you mark but that was funny and i agree i dont see the hype around this child

  19. KeKe May 4, 2015

    Trollsus wants to be TMZ so bad????????

  20. KeKe May 4, 2015

    Oops

  21. pat May 4, 2015

    at this stage in her career she should at least be able to sell out theaters…great performances tho

    • Lake Erie May 4, 2015

      I hate to admit, but Ciara has to start from scratch and that’s what she’s doing. She hasn’t been on tour since when??? She missed out on helly opportunities. and compared to then and now? Its a total different generation. It’s like she’s a new artist. I would expound more but it’d be a long story. But long story short: She Missed out.

  22. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy May 4, 2015

    Although her pest of stand annoy the hell out of me, I’ve always wished the best for Ciara. I have always said that she was the best female dancer in the 2000’s. Some other dancing bobble head should be worried…

    • hyis May 4, 2015

      Not if their name is Beyonce,Rihanna,Katy,Taylor or anyone able to book an actual real performance stage That’s not in the club or some hole in the wall location. That’s for damn sure,I hope like hell after this album flops you bandwagoners will find something else to cling to. The album sucks, the tour is limited, and the fans are annoying. You gotta have more to you then dance if you truly are a performer!

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy May 4, 2015

        Taylor and Rihanna are fine, because they are famous for various reasons and performing is not one of them. Beyonce however, is only relevant outside of urban America because of her performances. Now, Ciara is backed by L.A. Reid, and has a budget, she very well may be a threat. Remember, Rome too fell…

      • Jewel May 4, 2015

        That makes no sense whatsoever^

  23. Molly May 4, 2015

    The show SLAYED!! Ciara got me so hyped… that lap dance was everything girl LOL

    Favorite tracks from Jackie are DLWML, Kiss n Tell and Thats how im feelin.

  24. #TeamTinashe Stan May 4, 2015

    I would say cool but just noticed she’s booking the same stages as Tinashe when her fans made it seem she was booking stadiums.

    I’m pulling for Ciara though to do OK numbers this go around with the new album doing atleast 80K first week. It would be bad to see another black singer go down. We only have a few popping out here.

    • Mark111 May 4, 2015

      No way she’ll do 80K, maybe 80K total.

    • Petty Labelle May 4, 2015

      Gworl dont defend the třanny squad. They been getting at everybodys queens. Just watch this album flop sis.
      tbh Tanisha>Citranny im starting to like little Tinitra.

  25. diabetes unbothered May 4, 2015

    youtube.com/watch?v=eB0iTXmGa7c

  26. Molly May 4, 2015

    Mark your so negative tbh who cares about sales these days? The album is amazing thats all that matters.

  27. Mr. CEE May 4, 2015

    SLAYYYYYYED!
    So, anyone seen any performances from FLOPhanna lately?

  28. Applause May 4, 2015

    Im glad Ciara released this album and isn’t scared like others who wanna release all these flop singles but can’t release an official album release date.

    • Mark111 May 4, 2015

      746,000, it’s 2015 and ArtFlop STILL isn’t plat. Why?

    • #JACKIE May 4, 2015

      Kii hmmm I wonder who that could be?

  29. BeyRihLiyah May 4, 2015

    lmaooo this look like a high school talent show and is she performing in a cafeteria ?

  30. BeyRihLiyah May 4, 2015

    11 years in the game and still doing night clubs and theatres like damn you mean to tell me after all this time you cant even do an amphitheater lol

  31. TheElusiveLamb May 4, 2015

    She did extremely well. I’m so happy that she is finally touring again. I’ve been listening to Jackie since I got to work today and she has some really great potential singles that need to be promoted ASAP. I really hope she doesn’t let this album slip away like the ‘Ciara’ album, because I am still mad that no video for Sophomore and Overdose were never made.

  32. rihicon May 4, 2015

    so now that Jackie is coming out the c squad doesn’t care about sales? but when American oxygen flopped they were all up and down the post? I don’t think so

  33. Mark111 May 4, 2015

    Oh, I gotta update for the haters. Home is still in the top 5 after a month of being released and made $158M in the states and $326M WW. I thought it would flop? Rihanna saved DreamWorks.

    • Mark111 May 4, 2015

      Epic(Flop) only made $107M in the US and $268M WW. Egg on faces.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy May 4, 2015

        Thank you for spreading a wealth of knowledge. Also, I love the new avi; I want it as a poster!

    • Jewel May 4, 2015

      Wheres American Oxygen and the soundtrack on the charts?

  34. Keri Qween May 4, 2015

    Yasss Caesars living room tour slaying

    50-60k first week

  35. Barb-wire May 4, 2015

    These Flopgen stans be doing the absolute most. Like y’all shouldn’t even be coming for anyone with a release date. American oxygen is currently begging for your help on iTunes and y’all be perched on a Cici post who’s currently touring, when will fourhead?

    • Keri Qween May 4, 2015

      And the struggle print is barely selling 600k kiii you have bigger things to worry about

    • Jewel May 4, 2015

      I agree. The only thing they’re clinging to is Home movie LOL.

  36. Danny Bey May 4, 2015

    Tbh, I’d rather see Ciara in a low budget night club than see Rihanna in a football stadium. Venues don’t matter. Talent does. Therefore, Ciara is the winner and always will be.

    • Mark111 May 4, 2015

      AKA I can’t afford a Rihanna ticket, but I can sell enough food stamps to go to Ciaras. Gottcha.

      • Danny Bey May 4, 2015

        Actually b****, I’d rather spend my coin on the Hive Pit at the Mrs Carter tour, which I did. You’re so pressed its ghastly. But continue to stay upset while Rihfoppa’s singles and album stay in purgatory. Have a blessed day!

      • T. Banks May 4, 2015

        Your B*#ch as# is all up and down this CIARA post trying to spew hate! It’s not working b*tch! Stfu c*nt! You are f*ckin delusional if you think Jackie will sell less than Ciara, which debut at 57k with little promotion. Your punk as# is obviously nervous about this Era. The show was sold out last night and is also sold out in Atlanta with demand to add a second show! I know this album will sell well! As many numbers as you throw around your b*#tch as# still will never say that Rihanna is better than Ciara. F*ck you c*unt and f*ck Rihanna! @Mark111

  37. Rosie May 4, 2015

    Death, 11 years and she’s playing a club that my fave sold out in seconds for a festival sideshow during her debut era.

  38. JuanR May 4, 2015

    Damn Cici!

  39. john May 4, 2015

    CIARA RIGHT NOW IS FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE ALBUM IS BY FAR HER BEST WORK !!!! THIS SONG IS FOR M.F…. THE ALBUM IS IN TOP 10 IN ITUNES IN U.S.A AND TOP 20 IN U.K ALBUS CHARTS….NEW ERA HATERS!!!!!

  40. Royalkev May 4, 2015

    Cici is something else! I really want to see her live soon! That lap dance would definitely make Janet proud! 🙂

  41. WHO ME? WHO YOU, CHILE? HA HA HA! (QUEEN SLAYANNA) May 4, 2015

    Yes, she slayed as expected! I love that she;s in her element on stage. I’m kind of upset, though, because I really wanted her to at least book some small-capacity arenas instead of clubs she’d easily sell out. Anyway, I wonder what her mom thinks of “Jackie (B.M.F.)”. I hope she likes it, since it’s about how her daughter thinks of her as a strong and independent woman.

  42. You wanna love it right bettor then my funky money May 6, 2015

    Amazing performance of Ciara
