The show lasted for about two hours and Janet barely stopped to catch her breath. The energy was contagious, the chemistry and synchronization between her and her new dancers (whom she calls the kids) was impressive. The setlist was composed by songs everyone loves as well as fan favorites and four new songs. The crowd went wild right on the beginning when Missy Elliott showed up on the screen rapping to one of the new songs, supposedly called “Make It Work” or “Burn It Up”. Janet executed all of the dance moves with precision and vitality. The band gave a show themselves, and Janet’s vocals, most of which were 100% live, were calling the shots.
Jackson kept her sophisticated outfit throughout the night, with incredbile hair and covered by jewelry, wearing an exclusive Giuseppe Zanotti shoe. The stage, developed by All Access Staging & Productions, Inc. was very different from her previous ones. LED screens, stairs, lightings and projections were making the electrifying setting. Also, the Merchandise awed fans, and leaked pictures from the tourbook left fans thirsty for more pictures.
Without tricks or gimmicks, the singer did what she knows best how to do and showed the public she’s not playing. Yesterday, Janet Jackson showed the world she’s still in control, and gave us what we were missing, while showing young pop divas how it’s done. Janet Jackson is, indeed, Unbreakable.
The next performance happens on the 2nd in Alberta, Canada, at Scotiabank Saddledome (19,289 capacity).
