Janet Jackson: She's Baaaaack*
(* Or plans to be, anyway.)
Many questions coming in regarding the status of Janet Jackson's show at the Verizon Center tonight. As they should be, given that Janet (Miss No-Show, if you're nasty) has postponed nine consecutive concerts - and also pushed back an upcoming show at Madison Square Garden.
Well, the word just came in that tonight's concert is, indeed, on.
Here's the release, which finally offers an explanation about what, exactly, has been ailing the 42-year-old singer:
Over the last two weeks, Janet Jackson has had to cancel a number of dates on her "Rock Witchu" tour due to medical reasons. After a thorough medical evaluation, it has been confirmed that Janet's symptoms are being caused by a rare form of migraine called vestibular migraine or migraine-associated vertigo for which she is currently receiving treatment.
"Janet wanted very much to resume her tour so as not to disappoint her fans, but she continued to suffer from vertigo and could not perform," stated Janet's manager Kenneth Crear. "She's a world-class entertainer and needs to be at the top of her game to give her fans the show they expect. She's feeling much better and is ready to hit the road again to finish the tour."
Janet's Rock Witchu Tour will resume tonight, October 15, 2008 at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. at 7:30 p.m.
