Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable World Tour didn’t go so well; she kept postponing shows before flat-out stopping so she could focus on having a baby. Fans who bought tickets to Janet’s alleged lip sync fest were told the tour would resume in 2017 and that they could get a refund if they wanted. Unfortunately, some venues were reportedly not issuing refunds, since the tour was just postponed and not cancelled.
Since Janet appears to be busy with a newborn and a potentially messy divorce, the likelihood of that tour happening in 2017 seems slim. TMZ says one fan has had enough waiting for a refund on a concert that probably won’t happen for a while, and they’ve decided to sue to get it back. Tiana Adams filed a lawsuit against Live Nation accusing them of trying to get out of issuing refunds by repeatedly claiming the tour has been “rescheduled.”
Live Nation continues to be vague about when the Unbreakable tour is set to start up again; their website simply says “Sorry, no shows right now.” Live Nation hasn’t responded regarding this lawsuit.
It sounds like either Live Nation is trying to pull a fast one, or they don’t know what the hell is happening either. Either way, if Tiana doesn’t get her money back, I hope she and everyone else who bought a ticket to Janet’s tour at least gets a piece of paper with a time frame on it of when it might happen. Live Nation doesn’t even have to be specific. I’m sure a simple “Definitely in one of the 12 months in a year between now and 2023” will suffice at this point.
