LL Cool J receives roaring welcome on his first date of the tour
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Music icon Janet Jackson kicked off her highly anticipated Rock Witchu tour to rave reviews, major media coverage and fan adulation during opening week of the smash tour, selling out Staples Center in Los Angeles and Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas last week.

"Janet Jackson still a trend-setter, diva, and marvelous performer -- When she decides it's time for a tour, Ms. Jackson makes sure it's done right. And when she promises fans the show is going to be packed with hits, costumes and dancers, she doesn't disappoint."
What the Reviewers said:
"Some two hours and 35 songs later, Jackson had played all 10 of her No. 1 hits, as well as her other blockbusters ... That's how a true pro gets back to business after a seven-year absence from the road."
Contra Costa Times
"Any show following Janet Jackson into GM Place will find it difficult to match her."
"Offering up a lengthy and engrossing song-and-dance spectacle that delivers on every level..."
"Nine seamlessly executed costume changes are only the beginning. This show is all about dominance, and Jackson held the whip."
