Number Ones: Up Close and Personal
(2011)

Number Ones: Up Close and Personal is the sixth concert tour by American recording artist Janet Jackson. Described as her "largest world tour",[1] the show is in support of her second compilation album, Number Ones. The tour ranked 45th in Pollstar's "Top 50 Worldwide Tour (Mid-Year)", earning over 15 million dollars.[2]

Background

This tour will be different from the tours I've done in the past. […] In the way that I perform music[ally] will be exclusively from my 35 number one hits [in] 35 cities. These concerts will be different from anything I have ever done,” Jackson said. “I will be as up close and personal as possible. These concerts are not about special effects. This is a love affair between me and those of you who have supported me and my work for all these years. I’ll be singing and dancing from my heart. The music will all be songs that you’ve made number ones for me. Let’s go![3]

In 2008, Jackson embarked on her first tour in nearly seven years, Rock Witchu Tour, which faced many adversities, including postponed and canceled dates due to an illness that was later described as severe vertigo.[4][5] Jackson planned to tour Asia during that time, however dates were cancelled due to the 2009 economic crisis.[4] During recent interviews, Jackson states she wanted to promote the album with a tour but numerous circumstances halted the action. She filmed her roles in the films, Why Did I Get Married Too? and For Colored Girls. At the same time, she penned her first book, True You and suffered the death of her brother, Michael Jackson.

In 2010, Jackson returned to performing at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana. Jackson's performance was praised by both media and spectators.[6] The performance inspired Jackson to tour. In November, Jackson posted a video on her website announcing details of her upcoming tour. She deemed the show the "largest world tour I've ever done" but will be very intimate show. Unlike her previous trek where Jackson asked her fanbase to choose the songs, she states that she will only perform her "number ones"—from Billboard's Hot 100, Dance Club Songs, R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Adult Contemporary charts, as well as, Oricon and Soundscan's Canadian Singles Chart (as featured on the compilation album).

In the video, Jackson states she will only perform in 35 cities, with each show around the world offering something different in terms of her performance.[7] Fans were to vote on cities via her official website. Additionally, Jackson will give one person from each city an autographed copy of Number Ones along with True You. She also mentioned she will honor 20 people who have done service to their community and will dedicate one of her hits to each of the cities where she performs.[8] In late December, Jackson announced the first date at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.[9]

In April, it was announced that due to the massive sellouts and success of the current tour, Jackson will extend the United States and European legs of the tour into the fall.[10][11] She will also extend the tour to visit Australia, Africa, and South America.[12][13]

Critical reception

The tour has been met with very positive reviews from critics. Opening night at the Philippine International Convention Center on February 4, 2011 had great reviews from local critics.[14][15] The Jakarta Post wrote that for her show at the Jakarta Convention Center, she put together "a well-crafted performance, peppered with cool and familiar choreographies combined with an impressive multimedia backdrop. The 44-year-old Janet, accompanied by 15 dancers, sang and danced almost non-stop for one hour and a half."[16] Serene Goh of The Straits Times wrote: "She was theatrical before Lady Gaga, racy before Rihanna and bootylicious before Beyonce ... Jackson, now 44, brought to the stage a different sensibility, a pared-down set, fewer back-up dancers and less distraction."[17] Amy Verner of The Globe and Mail reported that Jackson "proved that she no longer needs elaborate stage sets or pyrotechnics to captivate her fans. They just want to hear, dance and sing along to Escapade, Miss You Much and All for You."[18] She concludes by stating: "Seeing Jackson in concert is less about her vocal range than her command of countless choreographed moves to catchy songs that you find you know the words to. She's in her element performing live, transitioning smoothly from fierce and aggressive to sweet and giggly. Most of all, she's no substitute for Michael but she's the closest we've got."[18]

Though reviews in the United States have been predominantly positive, with some critics observing that the tour could revive Jackson's chart success, some have been mixed on the scaled-down pacing of song arrangements and staging during the show. James Reed of The Boston Globe commented that "[a]t 44, Jackson looks terrific ... She stayed in step with her dancers, and she was in strong voice and as seductive as ever. ' However, he called the show a "strange animal," criticizing the fact that many of Jackson's hit songs have been "shoehorned into brisk medleys" and "two-minute trifles that never caught fire." [19] Vaughn Schoonmaker of MTV reported: "Often imitated, never duplicated, Janet Jackson's outbursts of meticulous choreography, sassy exclamations and smoldering gazes into the audience kept them on their feet for the entire two-hour set of her greatest hits at Radio City Music Hall ... we can expect to see this singing and dancing pop legend shine far into the future."[20] Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune wrote: "In past tours, Jackson's thin voice was often swallowed up by the sheer size of her production ... Monday was a different story. In the more scaled-down setting, Jackson brought a warmth and a passion that wasn't always evident in stadiums ... the best Janet Jackson performance I've covered in 20-plus years."[21] Ben Ratliff of The New York Times felt the show's best moments were by far during its third phase, with Jackson "relaxed and athletic, in black street clothes," and "not so much ecstatic as tension free, and less tied to her brother Michael’s vocal mannerisms." Ratliff also pointed out that "[s]he worked hard and appeared not to be lip-syncing."[22] Chris Richards of The Washington Post criticized the quality of Jackson's backup dancers, saying that "[they] were few and not the best," while stating that "if you paid to hear Jackson sing, you certainly got that. Not a single word appeared to be lip-synced. And even at its breathiest, that delicate voice hasn’t lost the laserlike precision that seems to be a part of the Jackson family DNA."[23] He complimented her physically strenuous performance, stating "[g]o on, Janet. Let ’em see you sweat. Because in a 21st-century popscape where concerts are driven by spectacle, we need to know that beneath all of the sci-fi costumes, strobe lights and Auto-Tune, we’re still witnessing a performance by the living, breathing, profusely sweating human being whose name is stamped on the tickets we just emptied our wallets for."[23] Gerrick D. Kennedy of the Los Angeles Times complimented her show stating: "While today’s pop landscape of over-the-top divas like Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Britney Spears have become known for glitzy productions ... She placed the focus of her set squarely on showcasing her voice—it should be noted that she sang live for the nearly two-hour show, a rarity in today’s pop music—and the legendary complex footwork that marked her and brother Michael as pop royalty."[24] Aidin Vaziri of the San Francisco Chronicle stated that "Jackson threw her body full force into the songs, unleashing a flurry of those famous family moves as the band barreled seamlessly through a quick succession of choruses from her multimillion-selling golden years ... The concert, packing in some 30 hits, worked at affirming her legacy as pop royalty."[25]

In reviewing her performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph stated "she has retained vocal tone and physical fitness is impressive, her voice still high, soft and girlish, her body curvy but firm and up to the demands of aerobic workout style dance routines. But a sense of time warp is emphasised by a hugely capable band all too precisely replicating the kind of machine tooled, plastic R’n’B of her Eighties and Nineties hit era."[26] Joanna Chaundy of The Independent wrote: "Watching Janet Jackson play such a prestigious venue, one that conveys a sense of intimacy despite its size, is a pleasure in itself ... Janet Jackson may be past her best but retains that Jackson star quality."[27] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian wrote: "At 45, Jackson can still sing and dance up a storm. You fear the worst when her late brother appears on the video screen, as if to remind you that weird is a relative concept in the world of R&B's first family. But there's no lachrymose tribute, just a ferocious reading of Scream. It segues into an even more ferocious take on Rhythm Nation: if she wanted to remind people how commanding a presence she can be, she's done her job."[28]
