I bought my tickets for the Minnepolis show yesterday. Tickets are on sale already through janetjackson.com, if you preorder the CD. A little annoying that there was no advance notice, but it worked out.

I brought 6 tickets for the Orlando show!!! I'm so ready. Janet needs to release that single already! She has received great buzz. And I love the way her team is releasing info bit by bit. Hell we haven't really even laid eyes on the woman yet. She's been in L.A for about a month now. And we've only seen her once. Ugh the thirst is so real!!!

Oh yeah! I wanted to ask everyone what bundle they chose! I just copped the vinyl LP. I was not sure about the shape of the t-shirt and I have bought some shirts online before and it just wasn't flattering even though the "size" was right.

Here are the current tour dates:

Nov. 12 Honolulu, HI Neal S. Blaisdell Center

Nov. 13 Honolulu, HI Neal S. Blaisdell Center (on-sale date TBA)

Are both these dates confirmed? We just heard of the Thursday date on the news, none was announced for Friday.

Don't know if I'm going or not. I'm not much of a fan (she's okay though) but we don't get many concerts around here.

This is so interesting! A veteran top seller doing tour presales bundled with album sales ahead of ANY tangible promo... a few tweets, a gif from Lex Luthor's hideout, and reassurance from Kathy Ireland of all people. Its very Lotusflower or whatevs with the numbers in the title. when do you get your CDs? Does this mean Janet will be on charts now or once it ships? How fun. Remember when stores got CDs a week or more before release? This is about the opposite of that as possible, making advanced salea on reputation. I hope she succeeds! But the last 2 albums were clunkers and I'm not of the presale investment demo.

is it considered a bundle though? when you pre-order the cd you get a code for prefered seats for the concert but i dont know if its a bundle because you are not buying them together. i got my cd but dates for my city hasnt even been announced yet, so lets say she dont come to a city near me, i would just get the cd and a tshirt unless i decide to travel to see her. I know she's coming to the tri-state, thats why i went ahead and did the pre-order. basically she's using the tour to push the album instead of vice versa, which was the traditional way.

Since they usually book up the place to rehearse for a couple of weeks, I guess it's just cheaper to do it there.

It's not a bundle. Now when I bought a seat for Madonna and was given a digital copy of her album.. that's a bundle (and probably better value).

Ah I see! The plot thickens. So these are strictly album presales with a concert seat incentive. Does the album have a name? I am so curious as to whether this will result in charting.

Janet Jackson Releases Video Snippet - Yes This One Is Real!

I think it's called "Love" and she posted it to her fans on her Twitter and Facebook pages! biggrin

You can hear it there:

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Well, they did for the VR tour. They booked up the Ahoy for about 2 weeks before the tour started to get the show ready. They did it for the AFY tour, they booked up the GM Place Arena for about 2 weeks before the tour started to get the show ready. I know, because I was there. I heard they booked up the arena prior to the start of the Rock witchu tour to get the show ready. And I'm pretty much sure they will do so for this tour.

I think the album is titled Conversations In A Cafe and there is another title floating around called "No Sl33p".

This snippet is just her way to say thank you to the fans. She might use it as interlude on the album, though.

Thanks!

Just checked it out. Liked that note she hit when she said, "You made me feel wanted". I'm feeling just about every move she and team have made so far. She seem to have a better strategy this time around more than previous records. Glad she's using social media to build her buzz but she's not oversaturating the market (yet at least) with too much information at once.

-

Now, I'm just hoping the single is worthy of the anticipation she's building.

If you were on her team, when would you recommend dropping "No Sleeep" online and radio?
