*In an earlier report we stated that people who bought tickets to Janet Jackson‘s now postponed “Unbreakable World Tour” concert dated wouldn’t be getting a refund.
Well, it looks like that very unpopular announcement has been reversed and now all who bought tickets will be able to get their money back.
According to US Weekly, Live Nation issued a new statement addressing how pre-purchased tickets will be handled for the postponed 2017 tour dates and refunds:
“The Janet Jackson Unbreakable tour in North America will be postponed until 2017. “New dates will be announced at a later time, and tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refunds are also available at the point of purchase. Stay tuned to JanetJackson.com and LiveNation.com for further info.”
Here’s what we reported previously:
Janet Jackson is NOT giving refunds for her “postponed’ Unbreakable World tour, after announcing that she’s putting the brakes on her professional life for a moment because she’s starting a family with husband.
“Hey, you guys,” she began the video message Wednesday. “On August 31, as you probably know, I launched the Unbreakable World Tour. First, I just want to thank all the fans for coming out and seeing the show … We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there has actually been a sudden change. I thought it was important that you would be the first to know: My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.”

TMZ reports that Ticketmaster and several of the venues where Janet was supposed to play say they haven’t received official word the tour’s been called off…so no refunds are being issued.
Janet’s fans are pissed they’re being denied refunds on the tour tickets — even if Janet’s camp rolls out new dates, people who purchased the priciest tickets are stuck waiting months, and possibly more than a year … depending on her baby situation.
