Upcoming Concerts 2011

Postby Icon » 05 Jan 2011, 11:39

Janet Jackson next month. Highlight of the evening? A duet with MJ, thanks to modern technology.

Janet Jackson's largest ever world tour celebrating for the first time the Icon's 35 number ones hits in 35 global cities is going to Taipei. Fans submitted suggestions to http://www.janetjackson.com to have their city selected as a date on the JANET JACKSON Number Ones, Up Close and Personal tour. The Taipei performance will take place on Feb 18th at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center.

This tour will differ from her previous concert schedules in that she will perform music exclusively from her chart topping CD NUMBER ONES. There will also be a focus on venues that will allow Janet to be up close and personal in a much more intimate setting. This show is JANET more revealed, more intimate, and more personal than ever before. Don't look for special effects. Just look at Janet.

Tickets will go on sale January 8th on G-music tickets. For more ticketing information please reach Veryaspect and G-music tickets.

Janet has expressed her excitement for the upcoming performance in Taipei by stating,

"My fans have voted and I'm very excited to tell you that Taipei will be the next city of my Number Ones Up Close and Personal tour. This is my first concert ever in Taipei, and I can't wait to share the love and rock it out. There will be special changes in this show to honor the culture and beautiful people of Taiwan."

She obviously hasn't seen the recycling lady who lives in my street.

We'll be getting tickets tomorrow, but I must say that I am not impressed with the "more intimate" aspect of things. I'm probably being too sensitive here, but it sounds to me like they are saying: "we don't want to schlep everything to Asia and the Taiwanese don't expect that much, anyway." So, I'm getting my tickets, but hope my irritation wears off by the time of the concert.

I'm paying the same for her show that I paid for other big shows, and so I'll just say: "I don't want frigging intimate. If I pay a few thousand for a ticket, I expect several costume changes, spectacularly creative displays, muscular background dancers, and a gorilla or at least some trapeze artists."

I'd be happy to pay for intimacy with someone like Leonard Cohen. With Janet, however, I'm waiting to see if I have been duped or not.

What happened to the events forum?

Shouldn't these be mentioned there?
"War is just a racket. I helped make Mexico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street.

Perhaps - but art exhibitions and concerts also fall under the topic of Arts and Entertainments. People posting in this thread aren't trying to drum up support for their own events and I feel it's okay for the thread to remain here. This one could have been placed in either forum though.

I only heard today that Janet Jackson is coming here for a show. I didn't know she was still out there doing stuff. Is she actually promoting a new album?

I'm hoping something a bit edgier comes for a visit, the Deep Purple show last spring was lots of fun.

Eric Clapton is doing a world tour, and in Hong Kong and Singapore in Feb/March. Nothing set for Taiwan unfortunately.
