Janet's Chipped Tooth Derails Milwaukee Concert

Janet Jackson probably wasn’t smiling Wednesday (July 18), and neither were her Milwaukee fans. The singer reportedly canceled her concert there just hours before showtime after undergoing emergency dental work.

Jackson chipped a tooth and had to have an emergency root canal, according to Milwaukee TV station WTMJ. A Bradley Center spokesperson told the TV station that the accident occurred while Jackson and her crew were setting up the show Wednesday afternoon.

Promoters told fans – some of whom had already arrived at the venue for the show – to hang on to their tickets, as the show may be rescheduled. A new date hasn’t been announced, and no information was available at press time regarding Jackson’s Friday show at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Jackson kicked off her All For You tour on July 7 in Portland, Oregon, after having to cancel the original opener two days earlier in Vancouver, British Columbia when a piece of her set failed to arrive in time.
