Janet Jackson Australian Tour 2011

When I was a young girl, I had a dream. And that dream was to be one of Janet Jackson's backup dancers.

I mean, have you seen Rhythm Nation?

Granted, my signature move is the double side step and clap, but that move showed a lot of potential.

Okay, maybe not.

So all that was left was to sit back and watch video after video of Janet's concerts, and imagine I was one of those cool chicks in the back with my backwards cap, cropped leather jacket and MC Hammer pants. This was enough for me.

So, imagine my absolute excitement when I found out that this year, I could physically witness this wonderful entertainer, in real life. The real, human Janet Jackson, right before my very eyes. Up close and personal.

Truth be told, I'm beside myself.

Janet Jackson will be touring Australia through October and November this year, starting in Perth on October 18.

Janet will be bringing her Janet Jackson Number Ones: Up Close and Personal Tour to our shores, and I'm certain it's going to be absolutely unreal.

She will be performing from her 35 number one hits. Originally, Janet's world tour consisted of 35 cities to match the 35 number one singles. But thankfully, the high demand for extra shows meant expanding the tour to include Australia.

Now the difference between this show and other tours, is that it will be just as it states: Up Close and Personal.

The setting is going to be much more intimate, and Janet has confirmed that there will be something different to every single show. No show will be the same in this tour, and every song performed will be from her chart topping CD Number Ones released in 2009.

Just some of these 35 hits include: All For You, Together Again, That's the Way Love Goes, Scream (with Michael Jackson) and 31 more. A full list of songs from the album can be found on here website here.

I can't really remember the last time I heard anything from Janet Jackson. Apart from when Michael died. Oh, wait.

Remember the famous wardrobe malfunction with Justin Timberlake half time at the Superbowl in February of 2004?
Let's just reminisce.

There was talk it was staged during a fairly quiet time in her career. Some said she was mortified. Whatever the reason, it made for great conversation for the next year. In fact, it makes for great conversation any time someone mentions Janet.

All that aside, she is talented. Super talented. No, not the less talented Jackson like some may say. I think they are all amazing. They were all born with music in them and I only wish I had the music talent of any of the Jackson's. Even Tito.
