Janet Jackson’s latest tour is experiencing even more hiccups. Earlier this week, it was announced that a series of European concerts on her Unbreakable tour were being cancelled. Initially, there was no explanation as to why and most thought that it was an illness or health reason.
However, according to Page Six, the reason that cancellation was because she hadn’t sold enough tickets. A source tells the outlet,
She was about to flop, badly. When an artist cancels an entire leg or postpones pieces of the tour, the real reason is because they’re not selling. It’s better to cancel than play a room that’s half-filled, especially if you’re Janet Jackson.”
Another source at Janet’s tour producers Live Nation stated,
We were a month out and still very positive about the shows, but it didn’t make any sense to keep all the dates. She’s very ambitious right now. And when you’re that ambitious, there becomes conflict.
The Live Nation source continued,
She has other businesses — some music, some brand-related. Janet has a complicated life. Her schedule was getting crazy, so we decided to pull this thing down .?.?. It may be moved to a later date.”
Last year, Janet postponed several US dates after a mystery surgery in December.
