Janet Jackson Cancels Japan Tour Due to 'Economic Crisis'

Janet Jackson has cancelled the Japan portion of her 'Rock Witchu' tour next month "due to the impact of economic crisis."

The shows, part of her world tour that started in 2008, were scheduled between February 14 and February 22.

Japan concert promoter Kyodo Yokohama says the tour dates will be rescheduled for later this year. The concerts were set for several major Japanese cities, including Osaka, Fukuoka and Nagoya.

The cancelled dates are the latest setback for Janet's 'Rock Witchu' tour. Last fall, the 42-year-old had to cancel seven performances in the US after suffering from 'migraine-associated vertigo'.

Add this to the growing list of things blamed on the 'economic crisis.' Of course, it couldn't because overpriced tickets for her concert were simply not selling, could it? Perhaps if she added her risque 'sex act' segment to the Japanese leg of the tour, Janet could have seen an unexpected boost in ticket sales.
