Janet Jackson’s Japan tour postponed

By | Published on Tuesday 27 January 2009

Janet Jackson’s upcoming five date tour of Japan has been cancelled and, according to reports, the promoters are claiming that it’s the global economic crisis that’s to blame.

The singer had been due to perform in several major cities, including Osaka, in February. New dates are now expected to be announced in March. Not sure if that’s because the global economic crisis will be over in March or not.

As previously reported, Jackson was forced to cancel seven US performances at the end of last year because she was unwell. She has recently been in the UK to support sister LaToya in her ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ appearance.
