Citing vocal concerns, Janet Jackson is postponing her scheduled performances at Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood, which were booked from Oct. 9-10. Jackson is moving the dates and venue for her next Las Vegas appearance, which is now a single show May 14 at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
According to a news release sent by Live Nation, which is booking Jackson’s tour, the 49-year-old superstar is following medical advice to rest her vocal chords. The on-sale date for the May 14 show begins Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com, all MGM box office locations and all Ticketmaster outlets.
Ticketholders for the canceled shows at Axis are being given first chance to purchase tickets for the new date during a presale Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. Those ticketholders will be sent a password via Ticketmaster. For refunds, those who purchased tickets to the Axis shows must obtain those refunds at point of purchase. Anyone who booked tickets through Ticketmaster who does not want to purchase tickets to the May show at MGM Grand will be automatically refunded within 10 days.
Jackson also canceled her scheduled performance Sept. 18 at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival at MGM Grand Garden Arena, citing an ear issue that prevented her from flying.
