Janet Jackson was forced to put her comeback on hold after her doctor told her to rest her voice.
The No Sleep singer is currently in the midst of her Unbreakable tour, but she had to reschedule dates in Salt Lake City, Denver, Kansas City and St. Louis.
In a message to her fans, she urged them to hold onto their tickets as she revealed the disappointing news but assured them the dates would be rearranged for the future.
Over the weekend, she tweeted: “Hey you guys, I must rest my vocal chords. Doctor’s orders… Will be rescheduling Salt Lake and Denver. Keep your tickets! Back to Burn Up Kansas City. Gon B Alright #Unbreakable (sic)”
Whilst she is currently touring the US, fans in the UK will get to see her in early spring next year as she brings the show to our shores .
She’ll be performing four concerts across the country in 2016, with gigs set for Birmingham, London, Glasgow and Manchester.
It is Janet’s first tour since 2011, whilst her most recent album Unbreakable has topped the Billboard 200 chart in the US.
This has now made her the third act to earn Number One LPs in each of the last four decades, following the chart-topping success of the likes of Control (1983), The Velvet Rope (1997) and Discipline (2008).
