A week late I know. But last week I went to the best concert I have ever been to. Janet Jackson – #1’s – Up Close and Personal

Jacob’s Pavillion, aka Nautica, is by far one of my favorite concert venues and I’ve been able to see two concerts (in two weeks) there. There is no bad seat at the Pavillion and both concerts this summer have been on the perfect summer night. Janet’s could not have been a better not.

Miss Jackson if you’re nasty. 

The crowd: the most diverse, amazing crowd I have ever been a part of. Seriously, every ethnicity and every age. There were 4/5 year olds that we saw and right next to them was a couple that probably were in their 70’s.

Janet: AMAZING. She sang and danced her way through so many of her number 1’s. I don’t think I sat much at all during the concert. She danced her booty off – much more so than some of the younger “stars” do (i.e. Britney – though I do love her too!) One of the things that I think I loved the most was how down and dirty this concert was. No elaborate pyro displays, simple videos (mostly shown while she went backstage) and a small stage. But I was bummed that she wore the same outfit throughout the entire concert – surprised too!

Concert of the summer. End of story.
