Miss Jackson Takes On The Santa Barbara Bowl

by Santa Barbara Independent

In its 75th birthday year, the Santa Barbara Bowl is all about starting strong.
Case in point: Janet Jackson’s season-opening two-night stay, which kicks off this Saturday, April 9.

At 44 years old, Jackson is unarguably one of music’s biggest stars, having sold more than 100 million records worldwide and spawned numerous hits (like “Nasty,” “Rhythm Nation,” and “All For You”) that stretch back to her 1986 breakthrough album, Control.

The youngest of the Jackson family, Janet began performing at the age of 7 and signed her first solo recording contract at 16. Today, she’s a bona fide quadruple threat, having conquered music, film (with Poetic Justice and For Colored Girls), television (Diff’rent Strokes, Fame), and now writing ( this year’s True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself ).

On her first tour since 2008’s Rock Witchu outing, Jackson is opening up and reflecting on her legacy. This weekend’s dates, in support of last year’s Number Ones release, are just two on a lengthy list of stops for Jackson that will consist solely of hits, stretching back to the start of her career.

I will be attending this show in celebration of my birthday on April 9th! Whooop!
