It looks like fans who had hoped to see Janet Jackson live in concert will have to wait a little longer as the diva puts her comeback tour on hold for just a few days.
Janet went online to tweet that she had had to postpone her Salt Lake City and Denver gigs because she had to rest her voice.
“Hey you guys, I must res my vocal chords. Doctor’s orders… Will be rescheduling Salt Lake and Denver. (cont.)”
Later, she went back online to add the rescheduling of additional concerts by tweeting:
“Must postpone Kansas City and St. Louis… Doctor’s orders. Hold on to your tickets! I’ll be back in Omaha.”
The concerts in Salt Lake City and Denver had been slated for October 24 and 25 while the Kansas City and St. Louis shows had been scheduled to take place on October 27 and 29.
It is hoped that Janet will continue her Unbreakable Tour on October 30 in Omaha.
This is her first tour since 2011, after her album “Unbreakable” debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. Apart from cities across the United States, she is expected to perform in the UK and Japan through next summer.
This is the second time Janet has had to put her concert on hold. In October, she was forced to cancel her Las Vegas dates also due to vocal strain. Earlier before that she had to take a hiatus just before the kick-off of her tour in August in Vancouver, because of her father’s medical emergency.
At the time, Joe Jackson had suffered a stroke on his 87th birthday and Janet had rushed to Brazil to be by his side.
The highly successful “Unbreakable” album is her eleventh studio album and looks like it will be another success story for the one of only three artists who has managed to produce chart-topping albums in all of the last four decades.
