      Wow!
      I miss some singles like STCML, So excited, Son of a gun… Weird that she chose to perform so many album tracks in Vegas, which is more of a general public type of concert.
      But great setlist overall. I guess many of those will be shortened as it's a looong setlist.

      No surprise she ignores 20 YO (interludes apart), but I cannot believe she has completely paid dust to Unbreakable.

        That's a very long setlist, but a very good one. For sure many songs will be short then though :(

          Yeah most songs are shortened, even If!

          A lot of songs are completely restructured too

            I’m over Unbreakable. She toured it recently anyway. I didn’t need to see BURNITUP or No Sleeep again

              Checked a few videos available on YT. I hoped she would finally come with a show, it's a basic ass stage again, ugh. And for such a colorful poster she sure is very drab in costumes. All black, grey and white from the 4 I've seen in the videos.

                She opens with a neon pink outfit and later wears a very colourful blue/yellow/green one

                  Yeah, saw the opening onec just now from the Instagram posts @Bojan posted in the other thread. But I'd still like if the outfits were a bit more different.

                    The grey one was awful. I thought she was gonna remove the robe and reveal a glittery corset.

                    And yeah, the staging is basic again. She’s never been too theatrical but I would have liked something a little different

                        I don't understand what kind of stage do you want guys? This one seems good to me. The only thing I don't like this time are her costumes.

                          I was hoping something bigger/fancier for Janet in Vegas tbh.
                          Still tho, she looks amazing. Can’t wait to see her live

                            I kind of wish more stage design. Give the "Metamorphosis" name some meaning. Parts of the stage moveable etc. I mean there might be stuff happening, but from the few videos I've seen it's basically your square screen in the background and a stage with some stairs and levels (looking basic, nothing covered to give the illusion of something other than your basic metal and wood stage setup). hun says it's RN stage back, which is OK, but in 2019 a little update on it wouldn't hurt. - metamorphosis you know? I know they're not going to do a big stage like that for a Vegas show, but because it's current - look at the ESC 2019 stage. It's also a big screen in the background but the design of it gives it many cool ways of lightning etc.

                              I haven’t seen any videos yet so this is just my opinion from what I‘ve seen on pictures.

                              Her hair looks like a plant. I really hate it. I hated it on the poster and I hated it during the Asia leg of the SOTW Tour.

                              The costumes are terrible...again. The costumes from the SOTW Tour were an improvement but these are probably her worst since the Number Ones Tour.

                              The stage...okay while I love that little tribute to the Rhythm Nation Tour I expected something more exciting in Las Vegas. Something like the AFY Tour stage maybe.

                              I love the setlist. It’s sad that she ignored "Unbreakable“ but like everyone said she has been touring with it for 4 years now so it’s okay and it didn’t have a hit anyway that everyone wants to hear in Vegas lol. Love that she’s not ignoring the infamous 2004-2008 era. Thank you for finally performing "R&B Junkie“, Janet. "China Love“ and "Love 2 Love“ didn’t have to be on there since those two are easily two of her worst songs. Also not a huge fan of "Empty" but I‘ll take any TVR recognition that I can get.

                              Okay that’s all for now. I will hunt down those videos now and write another book later.

                                I can’t believe she has performed Truth, When We Oooo and China Love in the past year. 3 of my favourite songs.

                                She’s now performed most of the AFY album

                                    "Better Days" is literally one of her best album tracks and she ignores it smh

                                    We don’t need a "Love Scene (Ooh Baby)" performance though. Terrible song.

                                                  She says Strawberry is back but those outfits look like prison clothes. I know that you don’t have to show much skin to look sexy but ma‘am those baggy pants are as sexy as a trash bin.

                                                      She does some good dance breaks but she’s definitely walking around the stage more than ever before

                                                      The more I watch clips, the more basic I’m finding this

                                                        I’m sorry, but I doubt it.
                                                        I posted how many tickets were available in the Vegas thread on 12 May and there were more than 1k available.

                                                        Just hours before the 1st concert, the numbers were:


                                                        I doubt she sold almost 1k tickets (20% of the total capacity) that same night at the venues’ box office.
                                                        If they claim the concerts were sold out it was probably because they reduced the number of seats available at the last minute and relocated people.

                                                        There’s 522 tickets left for tonight’s concert according to Ticketmaster.

                                                            Either that or some seats are not available anymore so the total capacity is smaller now.
                                                            We’ll see when the boxscores are released.

                                                              I think I read from an attendee that they were moved forward last Friday so I guess they have cut off some seats
