(Newser) – Janet Jackson is ready to resume touring after recovering from a rare form of vertigo, E! Online reports. The singer scrapped nine shows from her Rock Witchu comeback tour after falling ill before a soundcheck in Montreal, causing much speculation about a "mystery illness." Jackson's manager says the singer is receiving treatment.

"Janet wanted very much to resume her tour so as not to disappoint her fans, but she continued to suffer from vertigo and could not perform," her manager said. "She's a world-class entertainer and needs to be at the top of her game to give her fans the show they expect." Tickets for the axed gigs will be honored at a later date.
