The news comes months after she cancelled two dates in October due to health concerns. At the time, she tweeted:
“Hey you guys, I must rest my vocal chords. Doctor’s orders… Will be rescheduling Salt Lake and Denver. Keep your tickets! Back to Burn Up Kansas City.”
The tour, promoting “Unbreakable,” her 11th album, kicked off on Aug. 31 in Vancouver. She was scheduled to perform next on Jan. 9 in Denver, which was among several dates that had already been rescheduled.
Unbreakable, Jackson’s 11th studio album, was released on Oct. 2—seven years since her last album, Discipline.
