OFFICIAL STATE OF THE WORLD TOUR THREAD

Recommended Posts

So the Detroit show was either sold out or very close to it, lots of folks showed up to see Janet. The crowd was again like a UN meeting lots of different nationalities and races, young and old. I had a nice center section seat, and I say it was nice because of the stage setup, there's a lot to see and enjoy but if you are off to either side of the stage you dont get the full impact of the stage lay out because the three projection screens have the two in front and the one that sits in the middle is further back.

Now on this crowd, these people were out of control, trying to jump seats to where they saw empty spots on the floor, only to have security escort them out. I saw one guy that he got into some kinda argument with security, and security keep coming back to him for some reason, that was until the cops came and they took his ass away. I dont know what folks were thinking, but security was amped up and out in full force, they cracked down on camera phones hard core, if you were on the floor filming and within reach, security made it a point to stop anyone they could from filming, hadn't seen that happen at any show ever!  They did not play over the phones.

The crowd was jam packed and  I noticed the sound system was louder and pounding harder than the previous show in Toledo. Janet did thank the crowd for showing so much love because it was a bigger capacity venue and folks really showed up and showed out. So many women wearing different Janet "looks" it was really cool that so many planned out to show the love.

I noticed a few things that were different, since it is Halloween, the band at some point put on masks and were behind Janet playing and she had no idea they were wearing Halloween masks. At one point the kid dancers came out in Halloween M&M costumes soooo cute. I also noticed this time performing What About, Janet immediately got emotional almost crying at the start of the song, and she got herself together but that segment means a lot to her..... So below a few pics

That's the same thing that happened to me on the Unbreakable tour in 2015 in SF. It was sold out but people were still trying to sneak up closer and getting in other people's way but I wasn't having it. Somebody was about to catch these hands. Security had to come up and remove several people and escort them back to their seats. The sound issue is what I spoke about it my review also. On a few occasions it was hard to hear Janet. Was that the case with you too?

 I said it was hard to hear her at times meaning the sound was louder than her voice at times. I didn't say anything about anything being real or not. I'm not the first one to say this either lol

Janet looks humbled. I wonder where this is?

It was when Janet visited victims of Hurricane Harvey at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston

493 seats short but honestly I didn't expect it to do that well. I figured people would be weary of going to an event in the same building where a genocide took place just 2 weeks before her show. I know I wouldn't of went so I think she actually did good but I understand what you mean because it is Vegas after all.
