"The Velvet Rope" sees a natural synergy of Janet's distinctive vocals and sweet melodies with harder edged dance rhythms, state-of-theart sounds which appeal to a multitude of musical tastes. Janet brings us her inimitable soul, funk, and dance synergy once again in a world tour set to out-gun the past triumphs of "Rhythm Nation" 1990 and "Janet" 1994.

A spectacular production of lights, dance, energy - and of course at the core - Janet's total control of the stage. "There"s a velvet rope we have inside us, keeping others from knowing our feelings. In "The Velvet Rope" I'm trying to expose and explore those feelings. I'm inviting you inside my velvet rope".

5.0 out of 5 stars Her first name ain't "Baby"! March 16, 2001
It's JANET! And what a DVD this is. Killer sets, great dance numbers (my only complaint is that not all the dancers can be seen all the time, and they're working as hard as Miss Janet. I think more on-screen time next go 'round should be afforded to these talented, energetic individuals.) And Janet sings her heart out - all your favorites, from "If" to a medley of "Control" hits, to a razor-edged rendition of "Black Cat". The emotional song, however, is "What About", with dancers in the background enacting various scenes of violence between men and women, with men being the aggressors. A powerful song, "What About" only speaks more eloquently with its visuals. This DVD is never leaving my collection! Can't wait for Janet's new CD!
(And there is one awesome seduction number in the song "Rope Burn". You know that guy onstage will never forget THAT experience! Turn that track on when you curl up with your honey one evening!)

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Show! January 24, 2002
Janet's VELVET ROPE tour began in Europe in April 1998, and lasted well into the fall of 1998, hitting various countries to support her album THE VELVET ROPE. THE VELVET ROPE is Janet's most personal offering, with songs about acceptance, personal pain, etc. The tour is a must see. Janet takes on various personas through different costume changes, that symbolize her songs. Not only does she sing songs from THE VELVET ROPE, but she digs back, all the way to CONTROL and RHYTHM NATION 1814 with songs the fans have always loved. As tiring as the tour is, this party doesn't stop, as she entertains through and through during this concert. There is a charisma with Janet on stage, between her and the fans, her and the dancers, anyone she wants to make contact with. This is a show for the fans, and a show that doesn't disapoint. Highlight performances include the Control Medley, the Escapade Medley, If, Rhythm Nation, What About, and more. Give this one a whirl if you want to be entertained!

4.0 out of 5 stars very fun, very energetic... August 12, 2001
By Pauline
but I gave it a 4 because of the audience. I would have assumed that after it being aired live on HBO and set for VHS and DVD availability-that they would drown out the crowd more, particularly the first song "Velvet Rope" and "If". It got better as the show went on, except in some parts, where again they drowned Janet's voice by the audience.
Other than that, as I said very fun and energetic. All the great hits, fantastic stage sets and awesome costume changes. Especially the Escapade Medley stage set and costumes.
Those who like Janet and those who like concerts on the screen, I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The One and Only... MS. JACKSON (If you are nasty) January 18, 2001
This DVD is one of my all time favorite musical DVDs. Miss Jackson proves why she is the highest paid singer in the industry. With a combination of costume changes, great choreography, Janet's greatest hits, and a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden, the DVD makes for an excellent night of entertainment. I only regret that I was not able to see the concert in person here in my home town due to a cancelation of the concert;however, the DVD is definately a suitable substitute. I highly recommend this DVD to any fans of Janet, lovers of music, and owners of quality DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Janet GOES DEEP! January 3, 2000
If you missed seeing Miss j on HBO, I recommend you buy the DVD/VHS ASAP! Janet knows how to throw one hell of a show! The dancing is excellent, the staging is remarkable, and the dancers are great and then of course, there is Janet, the queen of Pop! If your seriously looking for Out-of-this-world entertainment, I fully recommend you purchase your on personal copy of The Velvet Rope!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Performance From Janet July 7, 2004
In 1998, I got the rare opportunity to see Janet Jackson in concert held in Minneapolis, during "The Velvet Rope" tour. The show was amazing. All of the physical features and her performances were breathtaking. Though nothing beats the live experience, this DVD wonderfully commemorates the tour.
Months before, she released an album of the same name that was unusually different than her previous. She was always known for her positive songs. However, the album entirely explored her painful turbulations, including abuse, loss, depression, and others. These songs are based on thoughts she endured during her two-year depression, 1995-1997. Many listeners were shocked. Some of these songs gave this tour a new outlook. Despite revisiting many classic songs, audiences can feel her new style.
The elaborate stage direction gives the concert a more enjoyable experience. The three different backgrounds and the three different costumes add to the spectacular pleasure: inside the velvet rope theme, the circus-like theme, and the hip-hop theme. All blend perfectly with the dance moves and the songs. However, her vocal expressions remain present the whole performance while never being overlooked. Her facial expressions prove that she truly feels the songs. Through the sexuality, political motivation, the pain, and the anger, she maintains her full musical quality. All songs offer a new prospective through her life. She keeps audiences excited, always having fun.
"The Velvet Rope Tour" proves how truly great Janet Jackson is an entertainer. This DVD edition is great for all fans as this will surely please audiences for a long time. The tremendous quality proves that she'll continue entertaining for many more years. Go Janet!
