HomeToursRhythm Nation World Tour 1990

After taking control of her career, breaking records and making the world dance and reflect on controversial topics such as racism and social inequality, the time came for Janet to take the stage and give all of her. In February 1990, the Rhythm Nation World Tour kicked off with a sold-out show in the city of Pensacola, Florida. Janet Jackson’s first tour showed the world a yet unknown side of the singer that, although already considered one of the best performers of the season, now broke all barriers and expectations. With a lot of choreography and a gigantic structure, the Rhythm Nation Tour also addressed more serious topics, keeping the tone of the album and encouraging fans to think while they danced to the sound of the biggest hits of the late 80’s.

With the setlist containing songs from her current album and also the predecessor, ‘Control’, Janet presented a spectacle every night, holding until this day the record for the most successful debut tour of all time. The choreography was in the hands of the same team responsible for her music videos. The names include Anthony Thomas, Tina Landon, who, years later, would become one of her best friends and main choreographer; and LaVelle Smith, one of the main dancers and friends of her brother, Michael. Janet had met LaVelle backstage at Bad World Tour concert, in the late 80’s, and invited him to participate in her following project.

Despite all the success it has achieved, the Rhythm Nation World Tour has not been released on video. One of the shows that took place in Tokyo, Japan, was filmed and televised by a local network. However, it has never been released commercially. At the time, Janet had signed an exclusive contract with Pioneer for recording and marketing the tour in LaserDisc, a technology previous to DVD, but no release has happened. Janet has stated in several interviews during the 2000s that she regrets never having released the material and still wants to complete this project.

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.
