janet jackson reschedules australia tour dates

First Courtney Love…then Flo Rida….now Janet! Australia is SERIOUSLY having bad luck with concerts!

In an effort to make sure that she's around to give her family support during the Conrad Murray trial, Janet Jackson has announced that she'll be rescheduling and reducing her Australian tour dates in Melbourne.

Here's what she had to say about it in a statement she released yesterday:

"When I planned these shows, the schedule in California was completely different. After talking with my family last night, I decided we must be together right now. This saddens me in so many ways."

Instead of performing on Oct. 26, 27, and 29, she'll now be performing only on Nov. 3 at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

Here's more on Janet's tour schedule change from promoter Paul Dainty:

"It is important that Janet is with her family at this critical point in the hearing. While Janet and our company apologize for any inconvenience for the reschedule of the Melbourne shows, we thank Janet for the great and successful concerts in Perth and Adelaide and eagerly await her return."

While this is a major bummer for Janet's fans in Australia, we certainly understand where she's coming from, and given the fact that she missed MJ's Tribute concert for the same reason, this doesn't come as any huge surprise.

Our thoughts continue to go out to Janet and the Jackson family during this difficult time.

    Well Australia can do a sigh of relief over Courtney Love and FloRida, I mean seriously, who would pay good money to see those two in concert?! But I have seen Janet in concert twice in my life, and neither time I was disappointed. For a woman who is pretty up in age, she puts on a great show. She's moves a lot better than some of these girls half her age. cough***Rihanna***cough
