The star won't be playing replacement shows

Janet Jackson has announced that she will not be making up the dates of her US tour that she postponed due to illness earlier this autumn.

The star was forced to cancel dates in several cities because she was suffering from migraine-associated vertigo, as previously reported.

She has now cancelled the rescheduled dates due to “conflicts in the singer’s schedule”, according to tour promoter Live Nation.

The originally scheduled dates were:

Montreal, QC Centre Bell (September 29)

Boston, MA TD Banknorth Garden (October 1)

Philadelphia, PA Wachovia Center (2)

Greensboro, NC Greensboro Coliseum (4)

Fort Lauderdale, FL BankAtlantic Center (7)

Uncasville, CT Mohegan Sun Arena (11)

Syracuse, NY Turning Stone (13)

Refunds for the shows will be available at the points of purchase.
