Janet Jackson suddenly gets ill before taking stage at Montreal's Bell Centre, resulting on the gig cancellation.
Janet Jackson's representative reveals that the "Feedback" singer has been rushed to hospital for an immediate medical treatment "due to illness." As a result, Janet has to call off her "Rock Witchu" scheduled show at Montreal's Bell Centre concert.
When asked for further explanation about the incident, Michal Wielgus, a publicist for Gillett Entertainment Group says that the incident is reported at the last minute just before the show time. "We're not entirely sure (what happened)," Michal explains. "We don't have all the details. We just found out 20 minutes ago."
The statement from Janet's management team says that the singer is still in the hospital, being monitored by the paramedic. As soon as she gets well, the show will be re-scheduled. Tickets for the event will be honored for the new date, which is expected to be announced soon. Meanwhile, refunds will reportedly be available at point of purchase.
Janet's "Rock Witchu" tour is a production that includes a demanding 38-song set list and more than a handful of costume changes. The tour started to roll on September 10 in Vancouver, British Columbia and now there are at least thirteen remaining dates for the roadshow, including the postponed gig. More details on the singer's tour schedules can be checked on her official website.
