R&B singer and pop icon Janet Jackson has delayed her “Unbreakable” tour.
Jackson was scheduled to make a stop at the Cajundome in Lafayette on Saturday, May 28. However, the singer told fans last week that she and her husband are planning a family and that she is under doctor’s orders to rest.
For those who were planning to attend the Lafayette show, the event will be refunded and will go back on sale as soon as the new Cajundome seating configuration is finalized and scheduled construction is complete.
Ticketholders should obtain a refund at the point of purchase. New tickets will be on sale and announced at a later date.
Jackson, 49, took to her Twitter account last Wednesday morning to announce a sudden change to the second leg of her tour. She turns 50 in May.
“We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson said. “I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can, try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up; doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you.”
In the video clip, Jackson thanked her fans, dancers, band and crew. She said she couldn’t wait to get started again.
“Once again, thank you to all the fans for your love, your undying love; your loyalty that means so much to me,” Jackson said. “You’re truly appreciated. It’s been a long journey, and you guys have been there each and every step of the way and I really do appreciate that. Thank you so much ... I will see you soon. “
