Just a couple days after the singer cited plans to start a family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana, as the reason for the tour postponement, Live Nation released a statement (via Us Weekly): “The Janet Jackson Unbreakable Tour in North America will be postponed until 2017. 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.”
Jackson posted a link to the news article on social media, confirming the report.
“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change. I thought it was important that you be the first to know,” Jackson had previously said in a video posted on Twitter. “My husband and I are planning our family. I’m gonna have to delay the tour. Please if you can try and understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders.”
“I can’t wait for us to get started again,” she added.
