Buzzy Wuzzy: Janet Jackson Is About To Get 'Up Close & Personal' In The States

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

One of the best things about being a Janet Jackson fan/stan/cult member is that whenever her royal bad assness tours, you feel that it's Christmas all over again. In the simplest of terms, it's an event and it connects like-minded individuals sharing a common vision pushing toward---okay, you get the point.

Even though Jackson won't be visiting my neck of the woods (she must not be a Spurs fan...*sticks nose in air*) with her upcoming Number Ones: Up Close & Personal tour, she recently added some US and Canada dates to the roster, which no doubt should send fans, like myself, in a whirlwind of excitement and premature plans to start selling blood to obtain tickets. As promised, she's visiting 35 global cities in honor of the 35 number one hits that she will perform at the show. Last year, her camp devised a poll to pick the venues where the tour should make a stop and fans sent in suggestions, with Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taipei being the first stops announced.

Jackson has expressed that the show, with a set-list derived from her Number Ones album package, is to be her most intimate yet, and that each show that she performs will be different from the last---so expect the unexpected when you go. She further discussed in a recent statement:
"These concerts are not about special effects. This is a love affair between me and those of you who have supported me and my work for all these years. I'll be singing and dancing from my heart. The music will all be songs that you've made number ones for me. Let's go!"

Well, escapade me.
