And the dance was really the focus, this time. Janet performed 26 songs every night and the moments when the singer was just cooling off were few. The great hits were there, along with many tracks from her latest album. One of the most anticipated moments of the new show was the performance of ‘Would You Mind’, when the youngest Jackson sister chose a member of the audience to join her on stage. Using a super tight latex bodysuit, Janet teased and showed who was in charge. The performance generated some controversy among the most conservative, but the public loved it and Janet was never to change her plans to please anyone.
The stage was developed by the singer in partnership with Mark Fischer, a famous architect responsible for giving life to other great shows from acts such as Tina Turner, U2 and Pink Floyd, and who had previously worked on The Velvet Rope Tour. It was the largest structure of her career. At first sight everything seemed pretty simple, the stage had only one level and a large screen fixed to the back. But as the show progressed, a grandiose Garden was inflated in a few seconds, stairs and platforms arose from the ground and even a futuristic city appeared in the background, transporting the audience to Eastern Asia.
