The setlist encompassed Janet’s career from Control up to that point, including most of the hits and even album tracks like ‘This Time’. For the first time, Janet began to invite fans onstage to take part in the steamiest moments of the show: during ‘Any Time, Any Place’, the dancers brought someone from the audience and Janet sang for the lucky guy. She would go on to repeat that act on most of her tours.
The Janet. World Tour hasn’t been released on video. She manifests regret by not having released her first two tours commercially, even demonstrating interest in doing so. However, many professional snippets that were used by MTV and other TV channels are available. At the time, audio-visual company Pioneer signed contracts with various artists for the release of their shows on LaserDisc, a technology that didn’t take off and was replaced by the DVD. Pioneer released some other concerts but not Janet’s.
A fan favorite, the janet. World Tour had 123 dates, divided into five legs from 1993 to 1995. It grossed approximately $141.5 million, which today would be around 230 million dollars.
