Janet Jackson Postpones More Shows Due To Illness

October 6, 2008 9:10 AM ET

An unspecified illness has forced Janet Jackson to postpone three more concerts. Jackson's weekend shows in Greensboro, North Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia were called off, as is tomorrow's show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Ticket holders are being asked to hold onto their tickets for the rescheduled dates. Jackson suddenly became sick before her concert in Montreal last Monday, forcing a brief hospital visit. Thus far, six shows on Jackson's "Rock Witchu" tour have been postponed by the mysterious ailment. After the initial postponements, the tour was supposed to continue this weekend in Greensboro, but a doctor there said Jackson had not fully recovered yet. On her doctor's orders, Jackson has returned home to recuperate.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
