Janet Jackson just announced tour dates and she lands in LA on the 14th, with the whole coachella weekend unbooked. coincidence?

I think Janet Jackson wears the tent to cover her ass.

I saw Janet Jackson with the then 19-year-old Usher in 1995. She puts on a terrific show!

This would actually be a good thing if they played her in the Sahara tent at night vs a cool headliner. Open up some space on the main stage!

C'mon though guys... doesn't she at least have Madonna status? I mean, like I saw Madonna at Coach 06 just to claim I've seen her live... that and when I was 13, I jammed to her "Janet" album much more than I'd like to admit.

So she hasn't had a good album in like 15 years... so what? I'd love to see her.

She can't sell out an arena anymore. Her last tour was cancelled because of very low sales. Maybe in the Gobi.

I'm thinking of doing Atlanta if I can get pit.

That schedule has lots of open dates for added nights away from festivals, demand permitting.

it's her first ever tour that wasn't in arenas.

HunterGather

There's definitely gaps, but i dunno.
The press release is all about her 35 number 1 hits and 35 global cities for this tour.
I reckon this is it, unless there's a bigger demand.

Janet Jackson and KOL on the same day?
That sounds like a KISS FM concert

A "Velvet Rope" era Janet would have been intriguing, but the last three albums were duds and she seems more interested in entertaining the Tyler Perry crowd.

Yes in this case it would be basically a fail of a night. Hopefully something cool on the outdoor theater i guess.

omg, i might be seeing her in D.C. with my buddy.
Good seats pending, though.
I'm not traveling for nothing less than orchestra section.

EDIT:
However, it doesn't appear theres a bad seat in the house, cause it's small

DAR Constitution Hall, D.C.
Dunno if the orchestra section will be seated or GA though.

Kubrick meets Fosse? Really??? How far in did you have to go to pull that one out?

Yeah, it's true that she hasn't had a decent album in years but this would be a lot of fun. I think Janet's vocal talents are really under-appreciated. She's really great at under-singing, if you know what I mean. It actually takes an incredible amount of discipline and control to sing that delicately. Unfortunately, that can also come across as terribly underwhelming when performed live.

She looked pretty sharp at last year's Essence Music Festival:

You have a point, but I don't think this is possible. Is Janet Jackson going to agree to a sub-sub-headliner status considering all of her fame and past success? The only way we get Janet Jackson is at a price GV could put to better use on a better act.

Now you're just being ridiculous. Janet Jackson has been a performer (singer, dancer, actress, choreographer, etc) for over 40 years, starting from when she was a little kid back on Good Times. She's created over thirty top-40 hits over the life of her career.

Sorry, but the comparisons that are made around here sometimes are so fucking asinine.

You have no clue what I'm talking about, so I suggest you do some homework before going into a tirade. What I meant was a couple years ago, Britney Spears was playing in LA but had the Coachella weekend off, and everyone started assuming and making threads that she was gonna come play a set in the Sahara, in fact most were certain about it, but it turned out to be nothing, just like this idea of Janet playing will end up being nothing.

Oh.

No, I didn't have any idea what you were talking about due to your lack of included details. My mistake. I take it all back but I probably won't take your advice and next time "do my homework" by looking through tons of posts and threads from past years in order to see where someone might be going with a point.

I just have seen a ton of hate for Janet around here since the new tour was announced so I got worked up too quickly upon seeing your post. Sorry, charlie.
