Slow Ticket Sales Torpedo Janet Jackson?


Earlier this week Janet Jackson canceled the UK leg of the Unbreakable Tour without explanation [click here if you missed that].

Did slow ticket sales cause the cancelation...?

Signs point to yes.

Industry insiders tell Page Six
“She was about to flop, badly. When an artist cancels an entire leg or postpones pieces of the tour, the real reason is because they’re not selling. It’s better to cancel than play a room that’s half-filled, especially if you’re Janet Jackson.”
Back in December Janet Jackson also canceled the North American leg of the tour [click here if you missed that].

This "quote" sounds like someone opinion. Not facts involved anywhere. Could it have anything to do that her father is allegly on his death bed? I remember when snitch posted the line where Jospeh said something nice about each one of his kids. We he spoke about Janet he stated when he had gotten sick a while back on her and another grandchild came to visit him in the hospital. "When I suffered 4 strokes last year, and was in the hospital recovering, only two people in my family traveled all the way to see in the hospital. My granddaughter Brandi (Jackie’s daughter and my baby girl Janet. She sat right next to me as I lay in bed, spent time with me, talking about a lot together. It meant a lot to me. I lay there listening to her as she talked about how she was going to get married. I am happy for her and wish her nothing but the best ! I never tell you this, but I am proud of you Janet." Say what you want about Joe those kids had some kind of love for him. Before Michael passed they said he contacted Joe to try to help him get out of a deal and when he passed the people at the house called Joe. Joseph was the one that told them to call the hospital. So basically Janet ain't flopping. She just had to use some FMLA leave to go be with a sick family member. Try again page six with your fan fiction quotes.

It could be ticket sales, it could be her father supposedly being very sick. All I know is she is a legend and she no longer has anything to prove. She should just chill out or just say this will be her last tour. She could sell out then and then just chill out with her man like Tina.

It's not her father being sick. If that was the case, why would it not just be said as it's a far better excuse than simply cancelling without an explanation. She's just not selling tickets......plain and simple. Her new music is so freakin wack and has been for years. She's had the occasional ok song speckled in those years. Artistically, she hasn't evolved. Although still beautiful, she stuck on the same soft whispering, bubble gummy type songs. That song she put out with J. Cole could have easily been one of her songs from 1989 or 2002........the same wackness. Plus, ain't nobody trying to watch those same Rhythm Nationesque dance routines (yes, I know B does it but I'm over her lack of evolution too). New producers are needed asap. Missy and J. Cole fine. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis need a BYE. Don't they still wear curls?

This is what seperation Madonna from Janet: Madonna is currently a still on tour. She us an international icon much like Michael was. Madonna put out a shit album but her fan base will pay to see her sing her hits. Janet just couldn't achieve that type of success.

This was a blow to her ego to play half filled arenas so she bailed.

How is Taylor and Adele laughing, Janet has done what Taylor, Adele, Beyonce, Rihanna, Madonna and the rest of them ugly hoes has done. Anjd still doing it. She sold out in the US. So if UK and Europe tickets are not selling then so what, drop it. Janet you did the right thing. It's dangerous over in Paris and UK anyway. @10:12, STFU, her album went #1 unlike stupid ass Madonna bullshit. All you all making assumptions like assholes.

10:34. Madonna not doing no more than anyone else except making a fool out herself as usual. With her stank looking self. I would not go see a show of Madonnas even if she was performing in my backyard.

Janet Jackson is a Queen, Legend & Icon. Something that Madonna, Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor, trying to become. Where those girls are, Janet has been and done already. Janet does not have to prove nothing. Her UK fans are attacking her right now because of the cancellations and she is still standing. Do you Janet, damn all the rest!

Age has nothing to do with ticket sales if you're a true legend. 'Old heads (and groups)' like Rolling Stones, Madonna, Prince, Sade, et al still draw a crowd. Janet has some good dance music, but I don't see her as a 'legend.' She acts better than she sings.

The truth is, Janet Jackson's career has never recovered from the Superbowl Nipplegate. They pretty much threw her under the bus. Ten plus years later, she is still struggling to sell records and concert tickets. It' sad.

How about you stfu? If she was #1, it was because there wasn't any other good shit out. You died hard ain't cha? Her music is garbage and you know I'm right. Now stop being argumentative, go pull out one of her cassettes (only era her music was good), insert into your Walkman, and sit.

4:21pm.You are garbage. Now you go find a job so you can afford to buy some music which I sure you don't even have nothing to play it on.

Janet sold out venues completely in US, Canada, Hawaii. She has never been popular in UK or Europe and she didn't even promote it. So there you go.

You just proved my point. Janet isn't an international superstar like Michael and Madonna. ADELE is international.
Janet never achieve that type of following.
