After rumors surfaced that singer Janet Jackson was diagnosed with throat cancer earlier this year, fans became worried that her “Unbreakable World Tour” would be cancelled after the North American dates were postponed. Now, for fans in the UK, their worst nightmare came true.
Earlier today, Ticketmaster confirmed several UK city cancellations. While we thought the pop icon was getting better after undergoing throat surgery in December, it seems that her illness may have affected her performance dates.
Ticketmaster released a statement, saying:
“It is not possible to confirm new dates at the present time so we are refunding all ticket holders.”
Luckily, all fans who purchased tickets will have their money refunded to them. Fans have voiced their feelings on Twitter, saying:
Disappointed @JanetJackson cancelled her Tour say scheduling issues – really you booked the dates last year perhaps you should check DIARY?
