Janet Jackson has delighted fans for nearly 30 years with a constantly evolving style of pop and R & B. The Number Ones, Up Close and Personal tour marinates eardrums in songs drawn exclusively from Jackson's catalog of 35 number-one hits, an illustrious group of tunes that includes "That's The Way Love Goes," "Black Cat," and "All for You." Pared-down sets and carefully crafted dance moves allow Jackson to connect directly with her dedicated fans, eschewing pyrotechnics for an experience as emotionally resonant as a baby's first push-up. The concert takes place in the PNC Bank Arts Center, where an open-air design ensures ample ventilation and prevents claustrophobic musical notes from panicking en route to waiting ears.
