Access Hollywood has confirmed that the ‘No Sleeep’ songstress will hit the Asian region after completing the first US leg of her ‘Unbreakable Tour’:

Access Hollywood has learned exclusively that Janet will perform in Osaka on November 19 and Tokyo on November 21-22.

Access has also learned that the Grammy winner will take a short break before heading to Japan. Sources tell us to celebrate her three sold-old shows in Honolulu, Janet, along with her family, friends and “members of her tour”, will be “taking over two luxury estates” in Oahu that are owned by Kathy Ireland. {Source}

Go Janet! She’s leaving no stone unturned and we’re loving it. She’s solidified herself as a live must-see, as such it’s great to see her working her strongest angle – especially in an era that sees touring as one of the most viable way to “win” commercially.

  7. JanStan August 11, 2015

    Damn girl. Selling out shows to support an unnamed album with no release date with an adult r&b single that u haven’t even promoted after a 7 year absence? Slay much?

    • Regina George August 11, 2015

      HEY! YOU BOUT TO MAKE ME SLAP THIS PHONE SCREEN… You betta SAY THAT!

    • Lake Erie August 11, 2015

      I know right!? Smh. She’s an Ox.

    • Sandra August 12, 2015

      Theatre venues tho. 5,000 seats per show. She aint playing no stadiums 😉

      • JanStan August 12, 2015

        Oh. I didn’t know the Forum, Barclay’s center, key arena etc etc etc were theatres. Hell even in the smaller venues she’s playing multiple nights. 2 nights in Vegas (15400), 3 in Hawaii (22000) etc etc. Yeah too bad the unpromoted tour isn’t doing too well.

  8. B2B August 11, 2015

    Come through Ms.Jackson and show these girls how to get back to business!

  9. Maudey August 11, 2015

    Queen Janet that’s all I can say!

  10. da realest August 11, 2015

    Come through QUEEN????

  11. Aaliyah Dana Carter August 11, 2015

    Too bad no sleep can’t expand out of the local US R&B charts

    • Aaliyah Dana Carter August 11, 2015

      It STILL has only charted in the US ???????????? it only charted in the UK for one week too. Talk about local

      • BeyRihLiyah August 11, 2015

        Shut the fuccck up you desperate ass troll shouldnt you be at the clinic you std infested prostitute

      • jjsrb August 11, 2015

        Why do you expect that type of song to chart elsewhere? It charted in Japan too, btw.

      • Sandra August 12, 2015

        Ouch! Pretty sad that her comeback failed this hard. & her tour is pretty much theatres with at most 10,000 seats per show, that’s hardly slaying.

    • Ka August 11, 2015

      It’s #1 as we see on BB Adult R&B Charts with no album title, a video just released a week ago aND a tour that is sold out twice over with no album released so I believe janet is doing pretty good….could show this new generation what years of success look/feels like!

    • Haha August 12, 2015

      Its an R&B song though…

  12. pat August 11, 2015

    An aaliyah Stan calling anyone local?

    • BeyRihLiyah August 11, 2015

      To bad thats a troll above

    • Sandra August 12, 2015

      Both Janet and Aaliyah are local to the USA

  13. jjsrb August 11, 2015

    I bet she’ll add even more shows in Japan. Japan was always her main market and all her albums went at least Gold there. It’s good to know that All For You album sold better in Japan than all Beyonce or Britney Spears albums combined! 🙂

    • Shady81 August 11, 2015

      And you can’t forget about China she slays there too.

      • jjsrb August 11, 2015

        She slays whole Asia.

    • Sandra August 12, 2015

      She’s playing teaters lmao, anyone can “sell out” a tour if they play 2,000 seats venues. Thats a lie btw, All for you did not outsell Beyonce and Britney, but you make up your own truths I suppose 😀

      • jjsrb August 12, 2015

        She’s playing 55 largest arenas in North America (2x more than Madonna) and one 24,000 capacity amphitheater. She is also playing one 10,000 amphitheater in Atlanta and Atlanta’s largest arena (24,000) so nearly 35,000 people will see her only in Atlanta.

      • jjsrb August 12, 2015

        All For You sold million copies in Japan and was best selling album in Japan in 2001. All Beyonce albums combined sold in Japan in less than 500k. In fact, Janet is one of only 5 foreign female artists who sold over 2 million albums in Japan (others are Mariah, Celine, Whitney and Madonna). Janet also had 8 sold out shows in Tokyo Dome, Japan’s largest stadium. Only Mariah had more (one more). But Janet will now change that with Unbreakable tour 🙂

    • Sandra August 12, 2015

      All For You sold less than 600k in Japan,and in total Janet sold 3 million albums there. Stop the delusions

      • jjsrb August 12, 2015

        It sold million. It sold 750,000 only in 2001, but even 600,000 would be more than whole Beyonce or Britney discography. Even Discipline outsells firts two albums by Britney Spears in Japan. Not to mention Madonna’s Rebel Heart. It sold 27,000 only, Discipline 120,000 🙂

    • Sandra August 12, 2015

      You actually think janet can sell out The Tokyo Dome on this tour? 😀 Keep dreaming 😉

      • jjsrb August 12, 2015

        We’ll find out that very soon. Concerts might be in Tokyo’s Nippon Budokan Arena. That would be 28,000 tickets sold, which is still great. 🙂

      • jjsrb August 13, 2015

        It’s Saitama Super Arena. Capacity 37,000 🙂

  14. truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) August 11, 2015

    WHEN WILL BEYONCE!! ????????????

    • jjsrb August 12, 2015

      Never. She’s local.

  15. Ropeburn August 11, 2015

  19. Stephy August 11, 2015

    Love Miss Jackson. I can’t wait to see this tour. She better bring it.

  20. Molly August 11, 2015

    ok and?

    • Slay_Hive August 11, 2015

      ???????????? Molly u so damn crazy and messy!

      • Molly August 11, 2015

        Right ? ki

  21. Royalkev August 11, 2015

    Janet is the definition of silent slayage! All that needs to be said this era is being said through her actions. I’m more than fine with that!

  22. jjsrb August 12, 2015

    UPDATE: According to BET Janet is scheduled to perform at the O2 arena in London as a part of her European leg of the tour.

    • Sandra August 12, 2015

      She’ll have to cancel due to poor ticket sales

      • jjsrb August 12, 2015

        Nope. She sold 16,000 tickets for London within 10 minutes in 2011 🙂

  23. lolhart August 12, 2015

    Japanese fans have always been loyal to Janet. When nipplegate happened, they thought the way she was treated was ridiculous and it didn’t affect her sales there

  24. WE FOUND RIHANNA August 12, 2015

    Lana Del Rey is a better performer than this wash up

    • jjsrb August 12, 2015

      Then go and watch Lana. I don’t see what’s problem? 🙂

    • coolness August 12, 2015

      DEATH @ a Rihanna fan talking about performance ability! You stanning for the most marginally talented female pop star to emerge in the last 10 years means your opinion is already skewed. Why not compare what your fav can do compared to janet instead of hiding behind Lana?

      • red wine August 12, 2015

        I’m one of the biggest Rihanna stans and i know she’s not the best performer live she a studio artist that models in video with that concept she slays other than that watching her live is like watching paint dry

  25. Sandra August 12, 2015

    I’mma bit confused here. Why e Janet fans acting like she’s slaying??? No Sleeep FLOPPED, it only charted for 2 weeks and that was thanks to J Cole remix. It didn’t even go top 60!!! And don’t bring up the Adult R&B charts or other irrelevant sub charts!
    Her tour is “sold out” (it’s not even sold out, just a PR statement from her team) because she plays small ass s*** venues, theatres and a few smaller arenas. Her comeback FAILED, accept it and don’t lie and say she’s doing good

    • Royalkev August 12, 2015

      Janet reached #67 (solo) and peaked at #63 (with J Cole). He brought something to the song artistically, but she already went most of the distance on her own. This is still pretty decent for vets in Jan’s age bracket. Let’s be frank, mainstream radio is barely playing women over 30. I can narrow things down into other categories where artists are ignored, but I won’t. The tour venues she’s doing aren’t smaller theaters. You may want to google a few of the arenas capacities she’s performing at.

    • jjsrb August 13, 2015

      She’s slaying cause this type of the song usually don’t chart. It’s not commercial. It’s like expecting Sade or Enya to chart. It’s charting only because it’s Janet. Also, over 35 artists nowadays rarely chart at all. Janet is 49 and still charting which is fantastic. She first charted on Hot 100 in 1982! Just amazing.

  26. Sandra August 12, 2015

    Janet will always be in Michael’s shadow, poor that! Bye Janet, and that snooze fest No sleeep is a big fat fail lol just like Janet’s career for the past 2 decades

    • Royalkev August 12, 2015

      ^ Who isn’t in MJ’s shadow! Your grasping at straws hun.

      • jjsrb August 13, 2015

        MJ is biggest star this planet ever had. I’m not a fan, but that’s the fact. Even Elvis and Beatles are in his shadow.

  27. Sandra August 12, 2015

    Janet being a veteran/old act is not an excuse for the poor performance of her new song. Michael had a #9 peaking song just last year, Mariah had a #15 peaking song in 2013, Madonna had a #10 peaking song in 2012. And they are all older than Janet. Why couldn’t Janet manage to go higher than #63??

    • Royalkev August 12, 2015

      ^ With a clear channel deal. Don’t compare two different fruits.

    • jjsrb August 13, 2015

      Madonna had Nicki and MIA and SB performance and radio deal. Mariah was younger, Janet was 42 when she peaked at #19 with Feedback without any young featured artist nor radio deal. What’s more, she was blacklisted.

  28. You wanna jbeyok love it right bettor like you do then my funky money August 13, 2015

    Good for jante Jo Jackson-mana

  29. Sandra August 13, 2015

    No Sleeep on itunes now:

    #19 Papua New Guinea
    #35 Costa Rica
    #86 South Africa
    #199 Jordan

    Pathetic for a “comeback” song! Janet’s career is non existent since 2002

  30. Sandra August 13, 2015

    Janet Jackson’s new song “No Sleeep” is a huge fail, it didn’t even go top 60 even with a music video and remix with relevant rapper. Janet was never more than an also-ran and is merely a tiny foot note in music history. She was always mostly famous for being Michael’s sister, nothing more.
