LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - After canceling six stops on her Rock Witchu Tour because of illness, MTV News is reporting Janet Jackson will be back on stage this Saturday in Connecticut.

"Janet, who has been under her doctor's care and recuperating over the last week, is excited about getting back on the road and again being able to share with her fans what she feels is one of her best stage shows ever," Janet's concert promoter, Live Nation, said in a statement.

The 42 year old R&B superstar was forced to cancel shows in Montreal, Boston, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Philadelphia and Greensboro, North Carolina after she was hospitalized in Canada.

Last week, Jackson - who is in the midst of her first North American tour in seven years - appeared ready to hit the road again for the show in Greensboro, but her publicist put out a statement saying the singer was not quite healed.

"Janet was hoping to resume her tour in an effort not to disappoint her fans," read the statement the night before the North Carolina show. "However, after arriving in Greensboro, it became evident that she is not fully recovered. A local doctor advised that she not perform tomorrow."
