Janet Jackson announced last week that she is delaying her world tour. She is “planning” her family with billionaire Wissam Al Mana​, whom she married in 2012. Turns out, she won’t be away for long. She has only postponed her North America tour dates until 2017.

“New dates will be announced at a later time, and tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates,” a Live Nation rep tells Us Weekly. This update also corrects what an earlier email from Ticketmaster said. Last week, Ticketmaster told concertgoers that refunds aren’t available because this delay is a postponement, not a cancellation. But Live Nation assures now that refunds are available at point of purchase.

“Please if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now,” Janet said in an announcement video. “I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue to tour as soon as I possibly can.”
