    New thread for her new album, coming this summer with a "world" tour.



    She looked incredible making the announcement on Jimmy Fallon last night.

    WHAT DO WE EXPECT? I think Unbreakable is widely considered her strongest work since All For You.

    I'm liking the appalled dominatrix glamour. I rather liked the last album, Should've Known Better was a freefall of sonic beauty and she didn't even get to cum.

    Another loose definition of world tour. Just stick a couple of dates in Canada to qualify.

    I suspect she’ll plan some European dates in 2022 and will contract some mysterious disease before cancelling them all.

    Well it wouldn't be a Janft tour without some hot jancellations. That's PART of the DEAL.

    She did do Australia and New Zealand dates at the end of last year, didn't she?

    Interesting that the promo states 'featuring brand new music and a special performance of Rhythm Nation'. I mean I ASSUME they mean the album (or at least the bulk of it) and not the song. But that won't leave too much room for very much else, will it?

    Doesn’t she do loads of medleys? She did about 30 songs on the last tour, didn’t she?

    More festival dates like Glastonbury. From what I heard she was the main headliner but it was misjudged and the young audience mostly left after Black Eyed Peas who came before her.

    They placed her on simultaneously with Lizzo so of course a lot of younger audiences were going to watch Lizzo instead. Jan still had a good crowd.

    I was so excited at the prospect of MAYBE SOMEDAY finally seeing her but Coronavirus is looming so it won’t be happening any time soon.

    I like her filler :)

    I had front row seats to the last concert. Sadly it seemed they barely even sold that row out. :D

    But I’m here for this. I thought the last album was brilliant. Her best since Velvet Rope.

    5. The Pleasure Principle
    6. Come Back to Me
    7. Together Again
    8. Made for Now
    9. Feedback
    10. Nasty
    11. Black Cat
    12. What Have you Done for me Lately
    13. Got 'Til it's Gone
    14. Love Will Never Do (Without You)
    15. Rhythm Nation
    16. Again
    17. What's it Gonna Be?!
    18. Rock With U
    19. Someone to Call my Lover
    20. Control
    21. When I Think of You
    22. Miss you Much
    23. Runaway

    can you imagine living through that setlist? especially if she wasn't such a hit and miss live act lately.

    Interesting to see that she's not so covered up anymore - even on the last tour she wasn't flashing the flesh at all

    Definitely getting cancelled if she’s casually inviting the entire View audience.

    Sorry but that clip is pretty cool.

    Although I wouldn't be surprised if the whole tour was totally all just talk show audiences.

    It seems a bit daft she’s doing this much promo without even having a buzz single to go with the effort

    Does Janet really need buzz singles though? Isn't the legacy enough?
