On April 6, Janet Jackson disclosed on Twitter that she would be postponing her world tour because she and her husband Wissam Al Mana are planning to start a family.
Jackson had previously delayed her tour twice before due to vocal surgery and health concerns. Just a few days after Jackson’s initial announcement that her Unbreakable Tour would be postponed, a Live Nation representative gave word to Us Weekly that the tour would continue in 2017.
The statement reads:
“The Janet Jackson Unbreakable tour in North America will be postponed until 2017. New dates will be announced at a later time, and tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refunds are also available at the point of purchase. Stay tuned to JanetJackson.com and LiveNation.com for further info.”
Jackson tweeted a link to the article as confirmation of the news.
