It wasn't long ago that a Texas gig from Janet Jackson—Miss Jackson if you're nasty—caused an uproar. That was back in 2004 at Houston's Reliant Stadium as part of Super Bowl XXXVIII's halftime festivities, when, in her performance with Justin Timberlake, Timberlake ripped off part of her outfit to expose her bare, nipple-ringed breast.
This time through the region, we can only assume the show will be a tad tamer. On this "Number Ones: Up Close and Personal" tour, Jackson is performing the greatest songs from her 30-year solo career; everything from "Rhythm Nation" and "Control" to "Again" and "All For You" seems to be covered on preliminary set lists.
Expect a tribute to departed brother Michael somewhere during her performance as well.
