Janet Jackson has cancelled the show, which was touted as her comeback gig, after she recuperated from her mystery illness.

After going through a string of cancellations, her Connecticut concert was finally scheduled for Oct 11, but as reports suggests, the singer has now scrapped the show – officially.

"Janet Jackson’s anticipated return to her Rock Witchu tour in Uncasville has been postponed due to doctor’s orders,” Contactmusic quoted her representative as saying in a statement.

Now, the singer wants to resume the tour on Oct 13 in Verona, New York.

The 42-year-old singer pulled her first show in Montreal, Canada on Sep 29 after checking into a city hospital with a mystery illness.

Since then, she scrapped a whole line up of shows in the U.S. as part of her ‘Rock Witchu’ tour.

However, there has been now official explanation for the latest cancellation, as yet.
