She’s been in the game for decades dazzling fans and selling out arenas and she is still setting records.
According to Billboard, Janet Jackson’s recently wrapped tour, “Together Again” has grossed over $50 million, which amounts to a personal best for the “Nasty” performer. The figures from Billboard Boxscore reveal that Jackson’s tour, which spanned 37 shows, sold 479,000 tickets to earn a total of $50.9 million.
That total surpasses the $46.9 million that her “All for You Tour” took in between 2001-02.
The numbers show that the “What Have You Done for Me Lately” singer averaged 12,958 tickets per show. Those numbers surpassed the per-show attendance of the “All for You Tour” (2001-02), the “Velvet Rope Tour “(1997-98), and the “Janet. World Tour” (1993-94). These were her best numbers since the “Rhythm Nation World Tour” which took place in 1990.
What makes this feat remarkable is that this tour wasn’t done to support an album. Her last project, “Unbreakable” was released eight years ago.
During the tour, she also hit some career highs. The shows she performed in New York City at Madison Square Garden (May 8-9) sold 24,500 tickets, bringing in $3.8 million. This was the biggest reported engagement of her career (excluding her residency at Las Vegas’ Park Theater in 2019). This was better than the three-show run at Madison Square Garden back in August 2001. That engagement grossed $3.2 million by selling 42,500 tickets.
She did career numbers in Atlanta at the State Farm Arena on April 26 and d28 bringing in $3.1 million. In Los Angeles, appearing at the Hollywood Bowl on June 10, the show brought in $2.8 million.
The tour was produced by Live Nation and co-headlined by “Fast & Furious” star, Ludacris.
The “Together Again” Tour celebrated Jackson’s 50th anniversary in entertainment and also spotlighted the milestones of her most critically acclaimed albums – 25 years of “The Velvet Rope”, and 30 years of “janet.”
Jackson has grossed a total of $254.9 million and sold 4.5 million tickets across 418 reported shows that date back to March 1990.
