      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

Janet's Tour Gross Overall Ever...

44 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Rhythm Nation tour 117 shows total.

The tour grossed over $28 million in the US only from dates reported, and nearly $65 million worldwide (equivalent roughly to $200 million, based on 2008 average ticket price).

Janet. Tour 123 shows total.

The Tour generated over $35 Million dollars in the US and over $75 million worldwide (equivalent roughly to $130 million, based on 2008 average ticket price).

The Velvet Rope Tour 120 shows total.

The tour grossed $32.5 million in the US, and $78 million worldwide (equivalent roughly to $133 million in 2008).

All For You Tour 72 shows total.

According to Pollstar Magazine, the tour's U.S. leg made over $40.6 million dollars making it the ninth highest-grossing tour of 2001. Overall, the tour grossed more than $55 million (roughly equivalent to $85 million, based on 2008 average ticket price), including 11 shows in the US and Hawaii that were not included in the Pollstar total, and 4 sold out stadium shows in Japan. BUT only 55 American shows were reported to Pollstar so the numbers are estimates.

Rock Witchu Tour 16 shows total.

$9,917,237 total gross.

Up Close and Personal Tour. 63 official shows either performed or scheduled to be performed.

Of the 6 reported dates performed in the US total gross thus far $6,509,444(of what was reported this number does not include additional shows)

total of all tours $289.4 Million dollars grossed. Janet was estimated to be worth 150million dollars, that Forbes list estimate is probably a gross underestimate.

I have a question about tour gross from older tours& this is just in general.Lets take this tour for example...

RN1814 Tour $65 million worldwide (equivalent roughly to $200 million, based on 2008 average ticket price).

Why is it being readjusted for 2008? Did something in the touring business change?

pricing is what they call adjusted for inflation in the sense that for example in 1990 a ticket to her show cost say 60 bucks because for that time frame that would have been appropriate BUT if we took the same tour and fame level adjusted it to today's standards those same tickets would go for much more. It's like a loaf of bread in 1933 would have been maybe 10 cents a home would cost you maybe 15k adjust for today and that same bread and home would be 3bucks and maybe 55k

I like that the comparison's are made in today's standards because it really gives you a context to understand how much Janet was really doing at the time she was pulling in some serious cash.

Its readjusted in comparison to inflation. An expensive Janet ticket for the RN show was probably like 60 dollars. That same ticket in 2008 was probably about 150 dollars. Its readjusted to put it into today's context. This is why some movie buffs will tell you that the most successful movie of all time is Gone with the wind" not "Avatar".

Oooh ok. I guess that would make sense. I was always kinda confused as things like that but I guess it makes more sense that the readjustment is applicable to touring & movies & not CD's because they go by the copies sold & now how much its sold for.

I also like how the promoters have gotten Janet's current tour ticket pricing better than the last, the last tour the tickets were over priced, now things are much more organized and make a lot more sense, you pay more the closer you sit as before, BUT you don't pay over 300 bucks for a Janet show, it's brought down to levels people are willing to pay for the quality of the show itself, Im sorry I should not go there but her show is very much low budget low overhead, it is no Madonna show, BUT the less she has to pay for the costs of doing the show the more she takes in. Plus Im glad she has proven performing your ass off is all one really needs and I commend her for that.

I actually paid more for #1s than i did for RWU. Even though RWU was a far bigger production.

But you're right, the overhead for this tour is very low, so she should see a lot of profit. :thumbup:

I actually think Madonna could benefit from a little scale back herself. She doesn't need all the staging to give a good show.

Or maybe she does? :mellow:

$65 Million in 1990 = $200million now?

75M in 1994 = 130M?

Why do you think she does it? She NEEDS all that over the top, larger-than-life props and production. Without..she's just ....

In the past Janets tour could have been as elaborate if she wanted it to be but Janet doesnt feel the need to over compensate for anything she lacks unlike Madonna.

Not all of madonna's tours were over the top.

let me give you an example to illustrate why that is, 5 dollars in 1933 could stock your house with groceries, today 5 dollars barely gets you milk and bread. 6 years ago a shirt from A&F mighta cost 30 bucks, today that same shirt will cost you maybe 45. Point is the closer in time the values are the less inflation has taken place so a show in 1990 over 20 years ago adjusted for inflation will have a much larger effect than a show that is adjusted within less time. Besides the value of a dollar matter a lot more in 1990 since we were dealing with recession, so someone who could spare a dollar to go to a concert it meant more, by 1994 the internet boom was beginning to take off and we were about to go on the "roaring 90's" stellar economy

where did you sit? I sat as close as I could on both shows, RWU the ticket prices fluctuated, it was a mess, BUT golden circle tickets were about 300 bucks. The most expensive on the current tour is 250 plus fees so 278 was what I paid to sit where I sat in Vegas.

I was under the impression that she's charging more this year than she was for RWU. It seems like her grosses are higher for the same amount of people. She sure wasn't making $1M+ in this many cities in 2008.

She's grossed over $100mil in the US alone based on reported dates. Fairly good numbers for the amount of tours she's done, and the ticket price.

No she was not bringing in 1 million but the tour was poorly managed and promoted also the ticket prices differed from city to city, what I notice though is if she keeps up the number of shows she is doing, she should be business woman of the year because she can pull in the box office numbers she did on other big production tours yet kept this tour so cheap it did not even have costumes

I had a ticket for RWY that was about 300 bucks, fans complained big time about the price, that's when I learned the promoters are responsible for setting what the price should be, problem was people in Canada paid more for her show than I did here in the states, the prices were all over the place at one point it got to selling tickets in groups at a discount, honey I hate to even include RWY tour numbers because I wonder if she made any money off that tour at all considering im sure she had to lawyer up and "negotiate" with Live Nation and the reschedules it was a mess. When the Auburn Hills Michigan show was cancelled after Chicago I requested my money back, and then went and bought a better seat for the rescheduled show at a lower price than the first seat :crazy:
