Janet Jackson at Walnut Creek

Janet Jackson played Walnut Creek Wednesday. All of us hoping the rain would hold off. At least those without the roof over our heads.

This is Janet’s “State of the World” tour but what could have been left out was political messages. We paid for and came to be entertained.

Janet came out with The Skin Game after playing a anti-racism video. After that, the entertainment began.

The show was what you would expect. Song, dance, with a good light show.

Janet still has her sexy moves. Can still tell a story on stage in combination of the lyrics and dance.

  1. Kinda silly to not expect any type of political statement when the tour is titled “State of the World” and it comes from her politically charged Rhythm Nation 1814 album.

    And quite frankly, it’s a message that needs to be heard/seen/absorbed. This country is collapsing before our very eyes. At the end of the day – Janet’s show is all about love. Nothing but love. Perhaps you missed the entire point but sounds like you were entertained anyway, so that’s good I guess.

  2. Oh, and ‘Scream’ is not a Michael Jackson cover. It’s a duet. Michael Jackson & Jackson. :)

  3. Clearly, you like your entertainers to “SHUT UP AND SING”
    I love the fact that she’s doing this in places like Walnut Creek where it’s clearly making people “like you” uncomfortable.

    Like Michael said “…some things in life they just don’t wanna see”

    WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED!

    “JOIN VOICES IN PROTEST TO SOCIAL INJUSTICE A GENERATION FULL OF COURAGE COME FORTH WITH ME”

    KEEP SLAYING, JANET!!!
