Janet Jackson took to her Instagram page Thursday evening (December 24) to announce she would be suspending her Unbreakable world tour to undergo surgery. The pop icon didn’t specify what type of surgery or why, but asked fans for prayers and to keep their tickets.
“It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable tour until the spring. Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets,” Jackson said.
Hey you guys… Happy Holidays to each and every one of you. I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring. Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets. They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced. Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment. I love you all so much and am ever grateful for your understanding and your love. Gon’ b alright.
Jackson’s tour is in support of her 11th solo record, Unbreakable, which became her seventh number one album. The pop icon kicked off her tour in Vancouver this past August, and was slated to resume January 9, with a New York stop in February, and continue through June.
The “No Sleep” singer began her come back last May when she released small video vignette’s of her recording before the release of the album, followed by her appearance at the BET Awards in June where she received the first Ultimate Icon award.
Feel better, Janet.
