Final Verdict: 7 out of 10, 14 June 2000
Author: ray.cooper from Cologne, Germany

Visually stunning, brilliantly choreographed, special-effects-filled, stylish, hugely entertaining and very stimulating concert show spectacle with Janet Jackson, probably the most talented and sexiest female performer ever to hit the charts, in excellent shape. Her terrific co-dancers and the huge stage are all perfectly concentrated on the astonishing Janet, who, already stepped out of the huge shadow of her older brother Michael, has not only a terrific, soulful voice, but is also strikingly beautiful and overwhelmingly attractive. Though it still seems like she's imitating the dance routine and mimicry of her brother, she has established herself as a unique performer, whose "Rope Burn" performance will not only drive any male mad, but also will make concert show history. With this one she ranks among the best.
