    So excited for tonight!
    I will watch some of the videos to decide if I wanna go to vegas, since I’ve been to her San Diego show recently.

    Considering she’s toured a lot recently I’d guess she’s quite happy with those figures

    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 :(

    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

    You Ain’t Right
    All For You
    Come On Get Up
    When We Oooo
    China Love
    Would You Mind
    Trust a Try
    Son of a Gun
    Truth
    Someone To Call My Lover
    Feels So Right
    Doesn’t Really Matter

    All but 2 songs

    "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.
