Jackson Scraps Plans For European Tour

JANET JACKSON has reportedly scrapped any plans to hit Europe with her forthcoming ROCK WITCHU tour following her record label's decision to cease promoting her latest album, DISCIPLINE.
The Nasty singer was due to play a series of live dates across Europe after embarking on her first series of concert shows for seven years in the U.S. and Canada, with her first gig in Vancouver, Canada on 10 September (08).
However, the singer has now decided to just dedicate herself to the North American leg of her tour, citing frustration with her Def Jam label bosses' lack of support in promoting her new album, according to People.com.
The star tells hip-hop website SOHH.com, "It was definitely in my heart to go to Europe and to support this album... it's about teamwork, it's not something I can totally do on my own.
"Unfortunately, things have turned out the way that they have with the differences between the label and myself."
Earlier this month (Jun08), Jackson told how there will be no further singles from her Discipline album, after record label bosses were disappointed with sales - shifting only 392,000 copies in the U.S.
She explained, "I'm trying to figure out a way to say this, but just to say it and to be quite honest, they just stopped all promotion whatsoever on the album, so I don't think you're going to hear another single off this album."
At the height of her popularity, Jackson scored 19 hit singles from just three LPs - Control, Rhythm Nation: 1812 and janet. And she still holds the record for scoring number ones in America from the same album, over three successive years.
