I was ALSO at the Toronto show tonight and Janet was phenomenal as usual. She is certainly the caliber of performer who can get away with such basic staging because it places all the focus on her, her dancers and the iconic choreography. Although I will say that the lighting design was pretty spectacular, and the interlude videos were nice. The entire opening section of wall-to-wall hits had the entire place losing their shit. There was one woman in particular a few rows ahead of me who looked like she was going to combust. The slow jams section kind of lost people a bit, but “That’s The Way Love Goes”/ “Rock The Boat” was big crowd pleaser, and by the time Rhythm Nation came around everyone was going nuts. Its been a long time since I have heard a crowd chant an artists name with such determination in anticipation of an encore. If I had to nit pick anything about the show it would be the costumes. The opening outfit is fire but she basically just wears the same black catsuit for the entire show, and just ads and subtracts things to switch it up, which was fine, but there just wasn’t a whole lot of variation. I also just wanted to call out the basic bitches behind me who couldn’t contain themselves from giggling during the the interlude video that leads into “What About”, and when Janet broke down in tears during that song. Whoever you were…fuck you.
