Hey you guys… Happy Holidays to each and every one of you. I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring. Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets. They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced. Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment.

The original tour, which kicked off in August leading up to the release of Jackson’s eleventh album, was slated to run between January 9 and June 29 in 2016. The latest postponement is the second in several months as Jackson was forced to take time off in October in order to “rest [her] vocal chords.”
