Janet Jackson has postponed several Japanese gigs until March, blaming 'the world's economy' as the cause.
Japanese concert promoter Kyodo Yokohama revealed that Janet Jackson has pulled out her several tour dates in Japan. "It's unfortunate but the world's economy does not allow Janet to make a trip at this time," her manager, Kenneth Crear, opened up about what is behind the show cancellation.
The tour will be re-scheduled later this year. Makeup dates are expected to be announced in late March, Yokohama said as quoted by The Canadian Press.
Janet was supposed to perform in Saitama as well as in other major cities, including Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka as part of her "Rock Witchu" world tour. She was originally set to kick off the concert on February 14.
Back in late September 2008, Janet Jackson has postponed a bunch of North America's tour dates due to migraine ailment. Citing that there have been some "conflicts in the singer's schedule", one month later, her publicist announced the canceled gig would not be re-scheduled.
