Janet Jackson cancels comeback show

Janet Jackson has scrapped the show that was planned as her comeback after illness.

The pop superstar's promoters announced that Saturday night's concert in Connecticut would go ahead after a string of cancellations, dating back to the end of September - but now the show is off.

In a statement, her representative says: "Janet Jackson's anticipated return to her Rock Witchu tour in Uncasville has been postponed due to doctor's orders."

The singer now plans to resume the tour on Monday in Verona, New York.

Jackson pulled her first show in Montreal, Canada on September 29 after checking into a city hospital with a mystery illness.

She has since scrapped a series of US dates on the Rock Witchu tour.

No official explanation for the latest cancellation has been given.
