Janet Jackson yesterday announced she was cancelling her upcoming European tour due to some of those pesky “scheduling issues”. The singer was due to kick off the UK leg of her ‘Unbreakable’ trek in Birmingham on 30 Mar. But, it turns out, the tour wasn’t so unbreakable after all.

It was Ticketmaster who actually made the announcement, telling ticket holders, simply that “the event organisers have been in touch to let us know that, due to scheduling difficulties, they’ve had to postpone the Unbreakable tour. It is not possible to confirm new dates at the present time so we are refunding all ticket holders”.

Late last year, Jackson was forced to postpone some US dates because she required surgery on her vocal chords, a development that led to speculation the singer may be suffering from throat cancer, rumours that were subsequently denied.
