Washington, Oct 25: Janet Jackson has rescheduled three Australian dates on her Number Ones tour to be with her family during the Michael Jackson “manslaughter” trial.
Jackson, 45, said that she will make up for the missed shows with an extra date Nov 3 at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena.
“When I planned these shows, the schedule in California was completely different,” Radar Online quoted the singer as saying.
“After talking with my family last night, I decided we must be together right now.
“This saddens me in so many ways.”
The tour’s promoter Paul Dainty said it was important for the singer to be with her loved ones at this time.
“While Janet and our company apologize for any inconvenience for the reschedule of the Melbourne shows, we thank Janet for the great and successful concerts in Perth and Adelaide and eagerly await her return,” Dainty said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Janet and the entire Jackson family,” he added. (ANI)
