Janet Jackson, who cancelled six concerts on her Rock Witchu tour, is expected to be back on stage, according to her promoter.

"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," Live Nation said in a statement on Friday.

The singer, 42, is expected to be back onstage Saturday in Uncasville, Conn.

She  fell ill just before a show in Montreal and has since cancelled appearances in Boston, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Philadelphia and Greensboro, N.C..

Jackson, who spent about two hours in a Montreal hospital on Sept. 29, was reportedly under a doctor's care and had been advised to rest until she fully recovered.  

No details have been released about her illness.

All fans were asked to hang on to their tickets, to be honoured at future dates. So far, the Atlanta show has been re-scheduled for Oct. 19, while a show in New York City has been pushed up to Nov. 1 from Oct. 16.

The star's2½-hour extravaganza features 37 songs spanning three decades, including hits such as Rhythm Nation, That's The Way Love Goes and Nasty.

The Rock Witchu concert tour marks Jackson's first North American tour in seven years.
