UPDATE: A rep for Jackson confirmed she will resume touring next year, but if fans don’t want to wait they can request a refund.
“The Janet Jackson Unbreakable tour in North America will be postponed until 2017,” a rep for Live Nation exclusively tells Us Weekly. “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.”
Janet Jackson announced earlier this week she’s
canceling postponing all future Unbreakable Tour dates to start a family. Whether she’s currently pregnant or not is unclear, but in a video message (with bomb lighting), Jackson confirmed the tour won’t continue as planned for the foreseeable future. “I thought it was important that you would be the first to know my husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” she told fans. “Please, if you can try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue to tour as soon as I possibly can.”
Fans assumed they’d receive their money back since there’s no plan in sight, but Ticketmaster sent ticket holders an email saying they won’t issue refunds until they receive confirmation from Live Nation or Jackson’s team that the tour has been canceled. For now, they’re claiming it’s “postponed or rescheduled.
Looks like fans just started an unintentional college fund for baby Jackson.
UPDATE: Janet heard you.
