Janet Jackson is not giving refunds to those who bought tickets for her cancelled tour

0407-janet-jackson-GETTY-01Janet Jackson fans are pissed they're being denied refunds on their Unbreakable tour tickets -- even though they have no idea when or if Janet will be back.

Janet announced Wednesday she's postponing the rest of the tour because she's suddenly starting a family, but was vague about when she'd return. Several of the venues where Janet was supposed to play tell us they haven't gotten official word the tour's been called off yet ... and general consensus is it will go on at a later date.

Ticketmaster sent an email to ticket holders saying, until they get word about a cancellation they're treating it as postponed and rescheduled ... so no refunds.

Even if Janet's camp rolls out new dates in the future, people who threw down hundreds for a seat are stuck waiting months, and possibly more than a year ... depending on her baby situation.

And many fans just don't want to wait awhile.

http://www.tmz.com/2016/04/07/janet-jackson-canceled-tours-no-refunds/?adid=pubexchange_huffpost_entertainment

from planetjanet:

So I just got off the phone with Ticketmaster.. and wooooow...! 

They are NOT happy with Jan at all.. 
dude from customer service chuckled when I told him I was calling about getting a refund because Janet Jackson publically announced she was delaying her tour dates..
He already knew the situation, he said he's been getting call after call about people wanting their money back for their Janet tickets.. He sounded really agitated too (not with me, but with the whole situation)..
dude said that what Janet is trying to do is what Lil Wayne did recently on one of his tours.. He said Wayne went on his Twitter and announced that he was done with his tour, mid-tour, and that he wasn't going to do anymore shows.. The problem with that is Wayne never told any of his promoters he was quitting and he was still legally contracted to fulfill these shows, and thusly ended up still doing a lot of the shows he said he wasn't going to (after negotiations to drop some shows)..
the TM guy said this is exactly what Janet is trying to do.. In fact, he said to me verbatim: "she's trying to force these cancellations" 
He went on to explain that normally, artists who are contracted with their promoters to do these shows do not announce that their bowing out until after signing the agreement with their promoters, production company and ticket distributors that the cancellation/postponement may occur..
he said she's doing this ass-backwards and that her video announcing the delay was the first, and so far only, steps she has taken to reschedule/cancel any of her remaining dates, and that she is making it look really bad for her in regards to any possible future endeavors/tours.. Especially since she has cancelled so many shows already..
you guys.. I don't knoow.. It's legitimately possible that the TM dude was just fed-up dealing wih Janet fans asking for refunds and that he was just spewing his own feelings.. But he wasn't saying to me it like all that was his opinions, he said these are the things that he and his co-workers are being told by their higher-ups...
take all this info anyway ya want to... But I can't say any it is hard to believe..


what a messy situation confused

I get she wants a family but seriously, either fully commit to an album and tour or don't bother. She canceled the All For You tour, the Rock Witchu tour and now the Unbreakable tour. I've been a fan for years but this crap is wearing thin. ---a fan on her facebook page

So basically what the facebook-Fan is wanting Janet to do is pick smaller venues/Concert Halls since she's unable to sell out most stadiums? I'm guessing the Promoter made some money on the shows she did do, so he/she is probably in agreement that it's better to cancel/postpone the remaining shows since the sells are low...This is more about Money than Janet starting a Family...This is about bizness....

This is whats baffling to me

Why all this static about wanting to see Janet Jackson when she has been absolutely trashed by media sources and a litany of fans in the past 5 years


Thats a paradox if Ive never seen one

Janet's my girl and all and I'm happy for her, but I want my money back please! For the multiple tickets I ended up paying for, I could use that credit right now if this isn't happening.

You'd think, but he did criticize her for 'lip syncing' at the AI final in 2011 as well as the whole ticket refund fiasco that's going on right now

If the tour is specifically "delayed", refunds might not be an option. But canceled dates get a refund. She did say delayed, so if she picks it back up in a year or so, those ticket holders tickets will be valid. She's not just taking the money and running. Hell, Wassim is richer than God at this point.

She needs to officially declare that the tour is cancelled.That way,fans who purchased tickets can easily get refunds.She is using the word "delay",but who knows when or if she will tour again? She is misleading her fans.It would be better to just cancel everything and give fans their money back now.If she decides to tour in the future,start all over and sell tickets again.Many fans don't wanna hold on to tickets for future shows that may not even happen.

I agree that would be a good course of action for now. But I also wonder about it from a promoter's point of view, or LiveNation's. If a tour is declared over, who loses money, and will it ever start up again? He post poned parts of Rock Withcu Tour, and it just fizzled out unfortunately. If it's declared as delayed - then perhaps funding stays in place, and everyone stands a chance to recoup their investment.

I do sorta believe that she's really digging in to do this for the fans, and to take care of them. She's been quite forth coming on social media about updates, etc. "I told you that you'd hear it from my lips first..." That's a plus, and different than past tours that have had problems.

If those fans with tickets find out the tour is eventually and officially over, they will get a refund. I mean, does Janet want that kind of bad press, or LiveNation? That's a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

Damn those memes are brutal but Janet brought this all on herself.

This is like the third tour in a row where she's canceled multiple dates. She's not reliable. I bought tickets to her concert which was supposed to take place in February of this year. It was rescheduled to August and now it seems her American dates are being rescheduled once again this time to 2017.

Great if Janet wants to start a family. I wish her all the best with that but again she has a habit of canceling multiple dates and coming up with lame excuses.

I don't care if I'm a "bad" fan or whatever. I just think Janet is lame for this.

Whatever though. I've seen her in the past and I'm just glad I can get a refund.

I said this in the other thread: if she can't commit to a tour 100%,then don't do a tour at all! It seems that every time she goes on tour,there are always some "issues" that come up.And the excuses are becoming more lame each time.Really....who stops a tour to "plan a family"?! That is ridiculous and totally disrespectful to the fans.What's gonna be the excuse next time?

There is no excuse. If she can't be bothered to finish the tour during the "planning" stages of starting her family, how in the fuck is she going to feel about touring next year so soon after becoming a new mother? She's been doing nothing for the past 5 years and now all of a sudeen, in the middle of a world tour she has already committed to she HAS to "plan" to start a family? Complete and utter bullshit. Of course I wish her nothing but the best when it comes to starting her family and if that's what she wants to do then great for her. The way she went about this though is completely wrong, rude, disrespectful and unprofessional. It's time to give up the touring aspect of her career. Clearly, she's simply not into it anymore.

I agree! I think she owes her fans an apology....a *sincere* apology and she needs to seriously give up touring.She can never seem to get through an entire tour without postponements and cancellations.She needs to finally be honest with herself and with the fans.

Like I said before and I love to have to tell you this: I told you so. She's postponing the tour for good. She wants to go back to her quiet space before this tour since ticket sales to her shows are low and she didn't get into the RRHOF and GOOD for those fans who aren't getting a refund because yall kill me holding Janet up on a pedestal like she's the pope or some shit. Since you're such loyal fans and you really love her so much then you shouldn't be mad about not getting a refund. Face it she'll be 50 next month and she can't do a lot of shows like she used to when she was younger.

The same thing happened to Michael who was also 50. AEG shouldn't have even thought about 50 shows. They would've been lucky to have gotten him to do the original 10.

FTR, I believe that this cancelled to "plan a family" is a bunch of BS. These shows were cancelled because of low sales. I have said from the beginning that this tour was NOT selling well and a lot of her fans said it wasn't true. IF she is really planning a family, it is because her husband is demanding that she start one. Maybe I'm the only one wbo feels this way;however, I don't think that Janet is as happy as she pretends to be or her fans want her to be. Of course, this is only MY opinion; but, I think that her husband CONTROLS her. She seems submissive around him as she did RENE. Btw, Janet has ALWAYS said that she didn't think she would make a good mother. They have been married about 4 years, why would she wait until the middle of a WORLD TOUR and "plan" a family? If she is already pregnant why not just come out and say it, instead of the lying? I'm not a fan of Janet's but I feel sorry for her fans who have been suckered into her deceptions.

I didn't purchase my tickets when they first went on sale. In fact the only way I got in was through an industry insider. Because the show was COMPLETELY SOLD OUT! I don't do scalpers.

I remember looking up through the whole arena & it wasn't an empty seat in the house. I was so proud of Janet accomplishing that. It came full circle for me that night. Remembering when we first met & how far we came. The hate that I read about her on this site disgust me.

Janet cares DEEPLY for her fans.
