Janet Jackson Resumes Tour After 'Migraine-Associated Vertigo'

Janet Jackson resumed her tour on Wednesday in Washington, and took the stage after nearly two weeks of being sidelined by a bout of vertigo.

Fans began wondering about Jackson's health problems when the singer's concert in Montreal was cancelled at the last minute on September 29, after she was rushed to a hospital. Since then six shows on her tour were cancelled, often with very little advance notice.

Jackson's publicist released a statement saying that doctors had determined she was suffering from 'migraine-associated vertigo', which is characterized by dizziness, imbalance and nausea, and that she had received treatment for the illness.

But while the singer was back, albeit not in top form yet, some fans weren't as she played to less than a full house at the Verizon Center -- probably expecting the concert to be called off like her previous six.

But manager, Kenneth Crear, says Janet is once again ready to go and there shouldn't be any further cancellations: "She's a world-class entertainer and needs to be at the top of her game to give her fans the show they expect."

"She's feeling much better and is ready to hit the road again to finish the tour."

It's the 42-year-old's first tour in seven years.
