  1. Number Ones, Unbreakable and SOTW were all small in production. And even if the production for Black Diamond is bigger (certain big props on stage for instance), it would've been possible.
  2. How is that an issue? Didn't Janet perform in some small and some bigger venues with SOTW? Other artists with big staging also do it, and it works for them. πŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
  3. They could go the Unbreakable-route. Release Euro-dates right after the album release. 10 to 15 shows all across Europe in venues with 5,000 to 15,000 seats. She has 6+ months to sell tickets, and some promo will definitely help. People KNOW she's an icon. And even if the shows don't sell out: no big deal. Mariah Carey's last show in Amsterdam only sold 3,000 tickets of the 15,000 available ones and there was no big deal about that at all.πŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
  4. I think her priorities have changed. Once the album and its promotion is about to happen, she will start focussing on her career again. I know that we all want her (and her team) to work harder on spreading and establishing her legacy, but it is how it is. Her legacy is cemented worldwide. Okay, my generation doesn't really know her, but they will eventually. Maybe the Black Diamond promo will help with that. And older generations do know her music and still remember how big and influential she was. That hasn't changed. Come on, we both know how everything's changed. It's not 1998 anymore. Velvet Rope kicked-off in Europe and was a tremendous success. Of course she could've announced European dates first, but it's tricky as well after so many years. Unless she would perform in smaller venues: stadiums is a bit too ambitious. I guess 5,000 to 15,000 seat venues would totally work for Janet over here. If her touring record would've been more consistent over the last 20 years, stadiums would've been possible.
  5. Control was a big success in the Netherlands and the most played Janet singles over here are from that album. i think she really wanted to tour over here with SOTW, but LiveNation didn't feel confident about her selling out over here. With a new album: yes. But SOTW had nothing new. The US and Asia got tour dates, but those tickets pretty much sell themselves as these are her biggest markets nowadays. Thanks haha. As usual, artists don't announce all the dates right away. The European dates were probably just weeks away. She also said it on Fallon: "These are just the States" (talking about the world tour). the Blackstreet Boys never faced a big boycott, so selling tickets over here is much easier for them. Janets fans buy tickets, but they only fill up like 30% of a venue. The other tickets are bought by people that aren't necessarily fans, but they enjoy her and her music (because they hear it on the radio and see her on tv). It's much harder for Jan to sell those tickets, but for Black Diamond it seemed like she was really aiming at good promotion (for Unbreakable, there was no promo whatsoever). A couple of televised interviews in Europe will do. πŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
  6. It was on top of her website, LOL. It said "European and other world dates soon to be announced".
  7. I think it's bad luck and circumstances. Janet was huge in Europe! After Unbreakable, the State Of The World Tour should've had a European leg, but LiveNation didn't want to invest in a European tour without a new album to promote. Janets team definitely wanted to work on her relationshop with the European fans, so they booked two big festivals that also drew media attention. Finally, for Black Diamond, she was really supposed to be touring over here with a proper leg, but then Miss Rona f***ed up everything. Praying for 2021 πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»
  8. That's true too. 1) She was/is blacklisted 2) Janet doesn't seem to be that interested in investing in her legacy like other artists do. She has a kid to raise, and like someone else stated here as well, Janet is aware that her legacy is already cemented. I just can't wait for this whole Corona-fiasco to be over, so we can get a properly promoted Black Diamond era.
  9. Cause radio and tv are not playing her music (videos)... And that does not only happen in the US. When I was a teen (around 2006-2014) I don't remember seeing Janets music on tv or hearing it on the radio. Yet, radio and tv WERE playing Mariah Carey...
  10. Nah she was really supposed to tour over here probably about now or next month 😭. Imma keep hope for BDWT 2021. πŸ™πŸ»
  11. Janet was probably about to head to Europe 😭
  12. I love how most people are taking this question so serious and are like "No, it's still Summer" (πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ), while it's OBVIOUS she's hinting a winter release of Black Diamond... πŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜€
  13. Me too 😭 We NEED to make it happen! Janet will most likely get that #1 regardless, but if we can start a campaign for all fans to buy 2 copies we will succeed 100%. πŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚
  14. I think she shares some (especially the Insta stories), but definitely not all of them.
  15. Okay. Well, the Unbreakable album came out when the tour was 1 month in. That's reasonable. I meant that it would be illogical to release the album at the end of the tour. By now, the Black Diamond album probably would've been a few weeks from being released, but a single release in April or May would've been very possible considering all the great promo we were getting in February. Also, I think that beautiful picture Janet shared on her birthday is part of the album booklet.
