Janet Jackson, Ludacris Perform at Hard Rock Live Hollywood

Published

on

International superstars Ludacris and Janet Jackson kicked off the Together Again tour with a bang at Hollywood’s Seminole Hard Rock Live on Friday.

April 14th, 2023

First things first, the Together Again tour got off to a strong start with a performance by special guest Ludacris, which felt almost like a co-headlining bill. Ludacris himself is a three-time Grammy award winner, actor and multi-platinum album selling powerhouse.

His 16-song set began promptly at 7:45 and hit all the bangers you might hope to hear including “Act a Fool,” “Area Codes,” “What’s Your Fantasy” and of course “Move Bitch.”  Hard Rock Live got movin’ and groovin’ as fans streamed in. Happily, he is along for all 33 stops on the tour.

Next, was Pop Royalty as Janet Jackson was ready to take the stage. Back on the road for her tenth tour with an eclectic 40-song set list and four sexy male dancers, the crowd was ready to erupt with anticipation. The eagerly awaited tour is 56-year-old Jackson’s first since 2019. I can’t say I can recall another concert with all male dancers supporting a female artist, and it was quite refreshing. Actor, singer songwriter, dancer and mother of a 6-year-old, Jackson did not disappoint in the slightest. Her latest album Unbreakable came out in 2015, but as one of the world’s best-selling artists, living legend Janet Jackson is celebrating the incredible longevity of her 50-year career milestone in the music industry, which presents a pretty exciting opportunity to catch her popping and locking to her greatest hits with a particular focus on classic albums Janet from 1993 and 1997’s The Velvet Rope.

The show opened with a video montage that set the epic scope of the show before the diva herself appeared center stage. Cloaked in a purple hood, she was revealed with a gold sparkle body suit, the first of several dazzling costumes. The choreography was iconic, with even the smallest gesture imbued with style. The five-time Grammy winner took her South Florida audience on a musical journey straight to the rhythm nation.

The massive six act performance spanned her more than 40-year career, with a mix of classic hits like “All for You” and “What Have You Done for Me Lately,” as well as some live debuts including opening song “Damita Jo,” as well as “Enjoy” and “Do It 2 Me.”

The 33-date North American tour will conclude in Seattle on June 21st, 2023.
