THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE
Miz Jackson is going on the road again with one simple, satisfying promise: just the hits. And she has plenty: the Janet Jackson Number Ones, Up Close and Personal Tour, which lands at Radio City for four nights this week, will cull setlists solely from the 35 tracks on her Number Ones album. So, Control into All for You into Nasty into Thats the Way Love Goes? Buckle up, Rhythm Nation, youre about to plumb Inception-level depths of losing your mind. This tour marks Jacksons first since 2008s Rock Witchu jaunt, which was plagued by the singers health problems, so this will be the comeback pop spectacle of the year. Its pretty great to have her back, isnt it?
