Janet Jackson’s tour has officially been postponed until next year.

The singer took to social media earlier this week to announce the second leg of her “Unbreakable” tour was being delayed because she was on doctor’s orders to “rest up” because she was planning to start a family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana.

On Friday, promoters confirmed the postponement, saying the tour was off until 2017.

“New dates will be announced at a later time and tickets will be honored for the re-scheduled dates,” promoters said in a statement. Refunds are also available at the point of purchase.

Jackson’s tour was scheduled to hit the Palace of Auburn Hills on July 23. That date was rescheduled from an earlier Feb. 5 concert, which she postponed after undergoing an unspecified surgical procedure.

The tour kicked off in August 2015 and was in support of “Unbreakable,” her 11th studio album which was released in October. The set debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart.
