The tour kicked off last August and was set to run through June of 2016. In October, Jackson announced a European leg of the tour then added more dates several weeks later.

The message reads: "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.

They had plans to move her to a new 20,000-seat arena in May.
