    • China April 23, 2018

      Must admit — I was not expecting this show to be EPIC and she was Incredible. From start to finish – she sang every hit you could think of and ALRIGHT was blazing. GRADE: #A

  2. pat April 23, 2018

    Her show is gonna be everything!! I’m so glad this generation gets to witness her legendary presence.

  3. DanYiel Iman April 23, 2018

    I’ll continue to pass on her music, never really been a fan.

    • Jason Lyric April 23, 2018

      Why didn’t you pass on this “article”. I will never understand why people take time to leave negative comments especially for artist they don’t “care for”. There is too much negativity in the world let’s spread love and positive vibes or at least silence.

      • Its me Gowrl April 23, 2018

        Chile I agree!!! That’s DUSTY ho didn’t even have to leave a comment. A S****!

      • Jasmine April 23, 2018

        That tired queen posts on EVERY Janet post the same comment. He is a fan in denial

    • Me again April 23, 2018

      You are so miserable. A tired queen with no friends. If you are going tonight pass, then pass commenting dummy! And you probably don’t have coins to see anyone live anyway.

    Come thru queen!! Beyonce copying Janet with that cane. Janet is STILL the mofo blueprint!!

    • Me again April 23, 2018

      Girl stop trolling. Janet is definitely my all time favorite, but she did not create the cane for an artist. Stop trying to get people all riled up in here with stupid comments like this!

      • Its me Gowrl April 23, 2018

        F. U. C. K you ho! Janet IZZZZ the blueprint and u mad!

  6. Just_blaze April 23, 2018

    Janet jackson lets go mama

  7. Keith April 23, 2018

    Im glad Ms. Jackson wants to work, but imma have to side-eye these dates with no new product. Also, who chose these dates/locations? I will see her at Panorama and would love to go to Essence but i think she shouldve taken the show international instead…

    • Jacob April 23, 2018

      There is no want or demand for janet across the pond anymore

      • Me again April 23, 2018

        Shut up and stop speaking of what you don’t know about.

  8. Tyren M April 23, 2018

    Why oh why won’t u bless Minneapolis?

  9. Jeans April 23, 2018

    Those promo pics are everything!

  10. Jasmine April 23, 2018

    I love her but she should do international dates too. It’s been too long she she toured other countries.

    • Jacob April 23, 2018

      No demand for her

      • Me again April 23, 2018

        Didn’t I tell you already to shut up queen?!?! Stop falsifying shiit you know nothing about.

      • Jasmine April 23, 2018

        @Jacob LIES! Janet is a huge superstar whose music career has lasted 4 decades and whose entertainment career lasted 5 decades. She is huge everywhere around the globe! You tried it queen but you are wrong. Just google “Janet Jackson uk” and see live nation, ticketmaster, and every single ticket reseller already have their sites setup for her tour to hit the uk this year. They are just waiting on the dates from her team. Get a life b|tch and stop hating on Janet. Your fav is a Janet fan. You a Janet fan too because you commented 3 times on this little post. What non-fan has the time to do that? BUSTED.

  11. Camilla of a 5 Harmony April 23, 2018

    When is she going to release new music

  12. Jacob April 23, 2018

    She trying so hard to keep up with beyonce,,, janet girl sit ur old A s s down and take care of that son of yours,,,aint nobody going to see your stale ass… beyoncr is going on tour …looking like a lion with sa pinched nose

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ April 23, 2018

      She is Beyoncé’s idol, beyonce has emulated her for years and has, not only tributes her in song, but stated how she is one of her idols and how much she wanted to be like her.. not to mention she dressed up as Janet Jackson for Halloween like 2 years ago. Janet teacher, beyonce student, not the other way around girl. You tried tho.

      • DREW May 7, 2018

        LOL… yet she tried tho. She need to have a seat somewhere

    • pat April 23, 2018

      Beyonce will stay copying janet.. the hive is already mad she isn’t utilizing IG story like Janet….she’ll cave in soon..

    • Retribution April 24, 2018

      Since Beyonce is going on tour, y’all need to buy her tickets because many of those dates are not selling. The demand is not high for On The Run 2 like her and Jay thought it would be. SO while you are trying to shade Janet, your won fave is struggling. Oops.

  13. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ April 23, 2018

    That ponytail is coming to serve, ok ladies!!!??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️

  14. Chocolatebox777 April 23, 2018

    Glad she is coming back to her hometown(Los Angeles)where she belongs. Janet has reinvented herself yet again.

  15. Boytoy1814 April 23, 2018

    Momma J. coming back 2 SLAY!!

    • Jeans April 23, 2018

      Hoping she sports long braids for the tour.

      • Ka April 23, 2018

        Straight Poetic Justice!

  16. Chica April 23, 2018

    Don’t get how it’s a world tour when she’s only playing in America and Canada. Typical American arrogance.

    • stateoftheworld April 23, 2018

      State of the world is the name of the song and the name of the tour! So she never said it was worl tour. That is why it is written in white color and tour 2018 is in red, so that people that does not know her catalog can at least read and not make arrogant comments before thinking for a second!

  17. JDotKilla April 23, 2018

    As a HUGE Janet fan I’m kinda bummed her festival circuit will be State of The World! We already saw that! Give us something FRESH a-la Beyonce at Coachella!

  18. YKD April 27, 2018

    The real deal is back. No other female artist puts in a show on her level. No one. We love you Janet!!
