Janet JacksonJanet Jackson’s “Number Ones: Up Close and Personal Tour” has been drawing sell-out crowds all across North America and Austin, Texas was no exception.  On April 3, Ms. Jackson brought to the stage at Austin City Limits – Live, a 90 minute showcase of number one hits including “The Pleasure Principle,” a medley of “Control, “What Have You Done for Me Lately” and “Feedback”  and the crowd-thriller “Nasty.”  “Let’s Wait A While” turned into a crowd supported sing-a-long.

Ms. Jackson, a cultural icon who released her first album at age 12 and is known as a hard-dancing pop princess, turns 45 this year, but is still thrilling audiences today.
