Janet Jackson ‘Speaks Up,’ Reveals Reason For Cancelling Shows

Janet is ready to get back on the road…for real this time. “My first show back is going to be D.C, it’s going to feel good coming back” the “Rock Witchu” singer said via SayNow. (listen below) Janet’s sentiment seems to be echoed by her road manger who revealed the cause behind the singer’s cancelled shows and eagerness to get back to the stage. “After a thorough medical evaluation, it has been confirmed that Janet’s symptoms are being caused by a rare form of migraine called vestibular migraine or migraine-associated vertigo for which she is currently receiving treatment.” The “Discipline” singer has not performed since falling ill Sept. 29 during a sound check before a show in Montreal. “Janet wanted very much to resume her tour so as not to disappoint her fans, but she continued to suffer from vertigo and could not perform,” her manager, Kenneth Crear, said. “She’s a world-class entertainer and needs to be at the top of her game to give her fans the show they expect. She’s feeling much better and is ready to hit the road again to finish the tour.” Shows scrapped in Montreal, Philadelphia, Boston, Greensboro, N.C., Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Uncasville, Conn., Verona, N.Y., and Manhattan are being rescheduled.
