Janet Jackson Announces "Rock with U" Concert Tour

Janet Jackson Announces

Janet Jackson announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday that after a 7-year hiatus, she’s returning to the stage for her “Rock with U” Concert Tour.

“I’m here to kick off my ‘Rock With U’ tour,” Janet shared. “Our first show is September 10. And I’ve set up a number for fans to call in and to leave what old/new songs you’d like to hear [at the concert]. The number’s 323-622-8139. Give me a call and let me know!”

The entire Ellen audience got two tickets each to Janet‘s concert. SOOOOOOOOOOO JEALOUS!!!!!!!

Ellen also asked Janet if there’s going to be a Jackson 5 reunion. Janet was optimistic: “I hope so. I’ve been really pushing my brothers and having conference calls and working on it.”

Watch Janet‘s appearance on Ellen here. And to watch her perform her latest single “Luv”, click here.

P.S. Janet‘s book is due out in stores in in November from Karen Hunter Publishing. She talks about her struggles with her fluctuating weight and self-esteem issues.

    This is sort of interesting. Her tours are always so weird. I don’t know if you know this, but she can barely sing. And when she goes on tour, the crowd is singing for half the show. I’ll wait for the TIna and Madonna concerts, thank you very much.

    When was her last hit?…..

  • bejeebus

    ick….i think all she needs is heidi montag singing “higher” as part of the background track to make this cr@pfest of music complete. absolutely wretched…..

  • Me

    There go the white folks tearing down Janet .. fuck ‘em girl, do the damn thing.

  • omar

    honestly, Madonna? I don’t even understand why that lady is considered a legend? She thrusts her pelvis, acts like a bitch on stage and barely sings and has a 1 octave range? she’s crap! She is using hip hop so she can stay relevant when the girl doesn’t even know a dang thing about the history or culture… pretty much a corporate whore… Janet Jackson, doesn’t really care to try and work with the hottest producers just to stay relevant… she goes with what she feels not with what she thinks is going to sell the best… anywho… JANET is AMAZING in concert!

  • real1

    Tina maybe PJH but madonna sounds worst than janet live and i like both of them.

  • Aaron

    ME—I just love whenever someone has even the slightest negative thing to say about someone who happens to be African American, it must be racism..I’m white.I love Janet. I have all her albums. I’ve seen her in concert twice. Granted, she could afford to learn some new dance routines because that RN dance thing is getting pretty tired, but just because I think that doesn’t mean I’m racist….Get over it. Your race card expired a long time ago.

  • ernie

    Janet Jackson has a very nice voice! It’s not the best, but it’s not the worst. She’s obviously a very talented women considering she’s won six grammys, 31 billboard awards, 12 american music awards, and the list goes on and on. And her last hit was just a few months ago…you may of heard of it…”Feedback”

  • haha007

    i agree with bejeebus…janet and heidi would be a great concert

    i love her song, rock with you.

    Aaron omg your so ridiculous. Say something that makes sense honey! Just because a white person makes a bad comment ridiculing a black person’s talent doesnt make them racist. Plenty of white people get ridiculed by blacks but not all blacks are racist. Get your facts straight.

    Im white and I love Janet! Her concert will be amazing!

  • Samantha

    Haters need to sit down. Janet Jackson is a musical legend she paved the way for Beyonce, Ciara, Rihanna, and all those other girls even Britney Spears has copied Janet. Britney and Christina both say Janet is a legend and an idol of theirs. So people need to give Janet respect. Janet is a legend and I am so tired of people putting the woman down get a life. Janet is amazing here is a woman that has a very famous brother that is also a superstar but she became a legend on her own. Very few entertainers can say this but Janet can.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    she cant sing, and doesnt even try. who cares?

  • http://dd DENYSE

    i think janet is the bomb, aways and forever. doesn’t matter how old you get she can dance,.
    thanks , hope you come to ottawa

  • RICH THE B*TCH

    To hell with all you detractors. Madonna doesn’t have the best range. She knows that, but she is the most famous female entertainer who ever lived. THAT is why she is considered a legend.

  • Aaron

    Emma–Scroll back up. I was refering to what ME said. “There go the white folks tearing down Janet” Obviously, ME is black by the statement that was made. If you read what I said, I am also white and love Janet. But I do think her dance routines and even concerts are getting a little stale and tired. She uses the same choreography over and over. Come up with a different dance routine. Give me something new!!! Just because I, as a white person, has that opinion doesn’t make me a racist or “tearing down janet.” as ME stated.

  • chantall

    yea i dont really like janet that much well at least shes pretty… i dont think she sings that good im more a beyonce person..
    P.S im black so dont even try to acuse me of rasicm

  • http://brownsugar_21_247@att.net Booty

    Some of you people are retarded!
    And that statement has absolutely NOTHING to do with racism.
    Janet is THE BEST FEMALE PERFORMER period and her concerts are always the best. If you’ve never seen Janet on Tour then you just need to hush because you have no idea what your talking about. And,it doesn’t matter whether she has a hit out right now or not…………………. she can still perform circles around a Madonna,Mariah,Beyonce and any other female artists you want to bring up to throw shade.
    Rock Witchu Tour ’08 is gonna be GREAT!

  • Janice tHAMAS

    Janet,
    You are the best performer in the world, MISS THING! I cant wait for ur Rock with U tour ’08. Beynonce, Mariah and Modanna can’t never step in ur shoes. HELLO!!!!

    Love you always,
    number 1fan,

    Janice

  • OWI

    This is awesome.. Cant wait to see the show!!!

  • ANAUD

    Hi Janet,

    I have loved you and your music since Good Times and Penny days. You are the original soul sister for real on TV, Music and Tour as far as entertainment goes. The newbys to your music don’t know what we went through back in the day to get tickets for your shows. We had to camp out on concrete at the department store ticket center for tickets before the internet came into play. We all have come a long way. Take care and be blessed.
    PS. I bought your first LPs Janet Jackson and Dream Street back in 82 so I am an honorary Fan…. Holla !!!!!!

  • http://www.janettour.com Janet

    I would buy it! I love Janet Jackson, and will support her in whatever she does! She has always been an inspiration to me.
    I can’t wait to see the new Janet Jackson concert tour this summer!!!! Yippeee!!!! I already have my Rcok Witchu tour tickets!!

  • fuckem’all

    Fuck all these foos Janet…do yo thang babygirl.. and by the way i’m white and I love everthing about Miss Jackson (cuz i’m nasty), so people writing comments on here dont need to make this a racial thing….In fact every one talking shit about her are just all insecure and jealous because either they want to be like her AND CANT or want to **** her and CANT! LMAO……. to all the haters go get some and QUIT HATIN FOOS!!!

  • georgiesf

    God’s honest truth…..I was there!!
    I took a co-worker with me to ELLEN when Janet was there. We are now skeptical about these in audience giveaways. Yes, we did get gift certificates for Hanes underwear (which was $50 for use online – womens undies are pack of 6 for $8 and men’s undies are 2 for $20….go fig) anyway, we were told we would be getting two tickets each for Janet’s tour as she said…..however today is 9/3/2008 and she will be in Oakland 9/13/2008 – still I have not received any tickets or information on how I am getting my tickets from the Ellen show. I feel that we were duped on this one and I am pissed!!!! I don’t know if Ellen’s peeps dropped the ball or Janet was just blowing smoke up our arses………very disappointed to say the least.

    Well damn what all you NEGATIVE people have to say about Janet. I just came from her concert at Staples Center and she KILLED it.

    For you stupid squares who don’t know what that means your probably the same people like Bejeebus and Aaron who talk shit about her.

    Janet set the stage on FIRE. She gave it and gave it well!

    You caint touch that.

  • keith

    Well I just saw Janet perform at Staples Center tonight and She KILLED it.

    Damn what these squares like Aaron have to say Janet. You are still the shiit!
