HomeToursjanet. World Tour 1993-95

The year was 1993. After the success achieved with Rhythm Nation, the next steps on Janet Jackson’s career would grant her the title of Music’s most influential woman. After venturing into movies, starring “Poetic Justice,” Janet said that she felt the need to talk about love in a broader way than she had done. Writing about the ups and downs and the different ways of feeling and making love. Hence the “janet.” album, with six hit singles, millions of copies sold and one of the most iconic covers in the history of Rolling Stone magazine – Janet was on point to give her best on stage once again. After a trip to Barcelona, where she observed the work of Antoni Gaudí, the inspiration was walking by her side. And on November 24, 1993, in Cincinnati, Ohio, the janet. World Tour began.

Defined by the singer and her dancers as a big party, the tour celebrated the different sides of love. From the sexual fantasy to heartbreak, from betrayal to allowing yourself to fall in love again. The new show was totally different from the previous, more cheerful, colorful and with a much larger structure. In addition to the number of people on the team, band and dancers, the stage was a spectacle on its own. Janet has for a long time been a pioneer in cool in new technologies and was one of the first pop artists to use video screens as a feature of her concerts. The three screens that were at the bottom of the stage were mobile and also served as elevators. They showed snippets of music videos or backdrops produced especially for the tour.

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.

JANET.br | Janet Jackson Brasil

JANET.br started in 2014 with two fans from São Paulo, Brazil, who had been keeping track of Janet Jackson's work since mid-00's.

We started on Facebook, grew out to other social networks, and then built a website with news and photo gallery. Since then, Brazil, who had never been an expressive fanbase, became one of the biggest hubs of discussion about Janet, and we became one of the biggest international communities about the star.

We're still here, bringing information to the JanFam and, maybe one day, we'll get Janet to come to Brazil.
