Janet Jackson is a pop superstar who achieved what few stars do, emerging from the shadow of her very famous brother, Michael Jackson, to become a respected artist in her own right. Janet Jackson has been a successful musical artist and actress, with albums at the top of the charts throughout her career. With millions of loyal fans worldwide, it isn't surprising that Janet Jackson tickets have been hard to find for her most recent tour, the Rock Witchu tour in 2008.
Wikipedia's thorough Janet Jackson page describes her childhood and early life. She was born Janet Damita Jo Jackson in 1966 in Indiana, the youngest of the Jackson clan. The article from Wikipedia states that "she first performed on stage with her family beginning at the age of seven, and later started her career as an actress with the variety television series The Jacksons…[and] went on to star in other television shows throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, including Good Times and Diff'rent Strokes." After beginning her television career, a teenaged Janet Jackson began recording music. She was not the instant hit as a solo artist that her brother Michael was, but that didn't deter Janet Jackson!
Eventually, Janet's singles began climbing the charts, her albums went platinum, and she began selling out tickets on all her tours. Later in her career, Jackson starred in Nutty Professor II: The Klumps with Eddie Murphy, making millions of dollars for her performance. Janet's newest album, released in 2008 and entitled Discipline, debuted at number one on the charts.
