‘State of the World’: Janet Jackson Tour Earns $44 Million

Published: Tuesday 5th Mar 2019 by David

Janet Jackson is still on top.

Greats news for an excellent entertainer below…

Janet Jackson is at her absolute best, and largely unparalleled in pop music, when she funnels direct, declarative messages into her songs.

Now free from the black cloud of negative press manufactured to turn the world against her in the mid 00s, the performer has enjoyed a return to prominence with her critically lauded ‘Unbreakable’ and the tours she forged to celebrate its release. These, being the ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ and its follow-up….the ‘State of the World Tour.’

The latter has amassed $44.6 million.

When ‘Unbreakable’s numbers are thrown into the mix Janet can boast of earning over $60 million on tour within the last four years.

A new project from the iconic entertainer is on the way.

    44 million? Hmm Beyoncé & Jay Z pulled quadruple that…??‍♂️

    • Kenneth Cooper March 5, 2019

      She didn’t do stadiums asshole

    • DC3Fan March 5, 2019

      Beyoncé and Jay Z also did a world tour and only did stadiums. Janet did much smaller venues and only toured the US. Just saying you can’t compare the two. They both did well in their own right

    • Kerry March 5, 2019

      You are one hateful little tired queen Danyiel Imess. Are you really comparing Janet to Beyoncé and Jay as far as touring? I have a better question….How much has your lame a$$ grossed this lifetime? I’ll wait.

    • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 5, 2019

      Beyoncé’s only on her 5th album and at her peak so that’s expected. What’s not expected is that at the same period in Janets life Janets album was a Grammy winning 7 times platinum, had 2 number 1 records with the first ever single to reach pop, urban and rhythmic formats EVER IN HISTORY….. not to mention being Mtvs first ever MTV icon being tributes by… Beyonce ???? that album sold more than Beyoncé’s last 3 albums combined hun- and it had a world tour ?. Let’s not compare the 7th biggest billboard artist (Janet) to the 39th (beyonce). Let’s not

      • Kerry March 5, 2019

        Everything you just said. I won’t talk about Beyoncés because her dumb brainwashed queen of a fan is clueless about my favs accomplishments! Even after being blackballed for 14 years, she still stayed strong and true to who she is. A true living legend!

        @Jazzy Bi Asian…you betta #TalkThatTalk you betta❤❤❤

        beYAWNce has not album in her catalog that out ranks or has outsold Janets’ Control Rhythm Nation, Velvet Rope and Janet cd. Neither has GRANDMAdonna. Neither GRANDMAdonna, or COPYonce has a catalog as extensive as Janets. Neither of them has stage presence like Janet. COPYonce had to have a group to launch her solo career and even as a solo artist, she latched onto Gay-Z to help her career. GRANDMadonna has used every shock tactic she can to stay relevant. COPYonce has faked pregnancies, faked divorce, faked marriage, staged elevator fights to keep herself relevant. Janet has not had to do any of that. Janet even kept her pregnancy low-key and still does not use her child to stay relevant. If you talk about the blue print who started it all, who’s everyone’s go to artist, what artist has inspired, dance, inspired, a look, fashion, inspired braids, who has a cult movie and who has the Biggest selling family member (MJ and The Jackson 5), JANET DA MITA JO JACKSON name comes up, not GRANDMAdonna, and not FAKEonce…and to add to that Janet has never had to inflate her records and concert ticket sales, I know for sure COPYonce has and Janet has never had to latch onto a rapper to keep herself relevant, FARTonce has. GRANDMAdonna has adopted children from Africa just to keep herself relevant and in the news. Not Janet. Janet is the only female artist who can go away for two years, three years, seven years as she did and still come back and kill the game. You say GRANDMAdonna kills the game, lets see if she can dance for 2 1/2 hours onstage like Janet…she can’t, because she’s being transported back and forth across the stage by half naked men in leather. As for FRAUDonce, all she does is twerk and pretend like she’s Nicki Minaj or Cardi B – What is she a rapper now (lol). She can’t even do a straight choreography without messing up, so there is no way she can do an intricate choreography like Janet and kill it, like Janet. So you need to SHUT IT.

      • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 5, 2019

        To be clear, I LOVE beyonce

      • Giselle March 5, 2019

        “All For You” only sold 3.1 million albums according to Soundscan. It did not outsell every Beyonce album, let alone every one combined.

        Overall Janet has sold way more records but you can’t directly compare their album sales because they peaked in very different sales climates, the 80’s and 90’s were the peak of album sales, while Bee’s entire solo career has been in the illegal downloading/streaming era.

        Beyonce’s tour grosses are on a totally different level than Janet’s even if you compare them both in their respective peaks in that area. The “All For You” tour grossed $48 million, the Formation tour grossed $256 million (OTR 2 did $254 million)., Bee has all 3 of the top 3 highest grossing tours by any African American artist.

    • Troy March 5, 2019

      Janet did a single tour, not a joint tour dummy. Plus Gay-Z and FLEAonce was giving away tickets in the parking lot to fill seat. Not to mention they inflated ticket sales on all of their tours and her solo tour. Janet is doing damn good considering she has close to a billion anyway, as a solo artist. Plus what does WHOREonce have to do with Janet, Janet is still a better performer even in her 50’s.

    • Troy March 5, 2019

      Lets see COPYonce do a solo show in a stadium and see how many empty seats she’ll have. Don’t play.

    • Shebe March 5, 2019

      Who gives a shot about a drug dealer and a prostitute…

    • Shebe March 5, 2019

      Furthermore, bryawnce doesn’t write her music and wasn’t she caught lip syncing??

    • Tekwardo March 5, 2019

      Yes. Correct. TWO artists on tour together with two opwning acts that want on a stadium tour around the world pulled in more than one artist with no opening act that toured the US and did 2 shows in Tokyo.

      Also, the sky is blue, sun yellow, and one of these things has nothing to do with the other…

      • Giselle March 5, 2019

        OTR 2 was U.S. and Europe only it was not worldwide. Beyonce’s last tour without Jay-Z actually grossed slightly more than when they toured together.

        The Formation Tour had 49 shows total and grossed $256 million, OTR 2 had 48 shows and grossed $253.5 million.

        Janet’s Unbreakable tour had 37 shows total and grossed $44 million.

  2. ayyye March 5, 2019

    all with being away for a decade, blacklisted, and no promo. Queen!

    • Phyl March 5, 2019


  3. Mm March 5, 2019

    Madonna’s last tour did $170 million in less than 6 months.

    Step your game up Janet

    • Kenneth Cooper March 5, 2019

      F*** Madookie

    • Truth, a REAL sissy March 5, 2019

      How much did u earn ho?

      • Shebe March 5, 2019


    • Ssa1814 March 5, 2019

      Name another black female around 50 years old that does R&B and makes Madonna type numbers from touring. Not Mariah, Toni, Diana, Mary, Patti, Gladys, Erykah, Jill or Sade. It’s even harder for older black men. ??‍♂️

      • Dru March 5, 2019


    • Troy March 5, 2019

      Inflated numbers. Plus with all of the stage props and bells and whistles, GRANDMAdonna might have made 120 Million, but how much did she actually take home after paying for all of the stage props. Janet had minimum stage props, just a back drop and still came out making 44 Million, deduct 1.5 Million for her road crew, dancers, sound, insurance etc. and Janet still wins. Take home for the tour 40 Million tops.

  4. TtTt March 5, 2019

    40 years in the game pulling 40 million dollar tours… the blue print

    • Nicky March 5, 2019

      She was blacklisted for years. She’s building back up dumb dumb. Still took 500 m from a divorce. This is extra change for her

      • Kenneth Cooper March 5, 2019

        She did not take $500 million dummy

  5. Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ March 5, 2019

    Can’t nobody see Miss Janet on the stage- the undisputed!!

  6. Jeans March 5, 2019


  7. James March 5, 2019

    Unbelievable she is one of the worst live singers I ever have heard. I guess people like cheap music. Well back to Neverland oh wait hell no

    • Kerry March 5, 2019

      Stop trolling h0£ and go wash your ???!!

    • Kenneth Cooper March 5, 2019

      Madonna can’t sing either

  8. LUCKI March 5, 2019

    Congrats to Janet! I wish her concerts didn’t look so LOW BUDGET though, no shade.

  9. Stevey Ray Gurule March 5, 2019

    She’s the absolute best! I’ve always loved her and have seen SOTW tour twice! Next up is her show in Vegas on May 22!

  10. Mike March 5, 2019

    The state of the world tour was amazing. The set list was perfect for 2017-18 with all of the social injustice going on

  11. Keith March 6, 2019

    Saw 5 shows and Panorama. Happy to hear that there was a decent gross. Hope that this will convince backers to spend more on production values going forward. I wish her international fans beyond Japan couldve enjoyed the show. Deep cuts, b-sides and hits, no fan left a performance unsatisfied. Plus she has the tightest group of dancers since the Janet era. Got my tickets for Vegas!!!!
