The Associated Press is reporting that pop star Janet Jackson was released from a Montreal hospital two hours after she was taken there Monday night.
Jackson, 42, became “suddenly ill” during her sound check and was taken to Royal Victoria Hospital shortly before her Montreal concert, which had to be canceled.
The singer’s representatives declined Tuesday to elaborate on her illness, according to the AP, stating only that she is ill and recuperating.
Jackson was set to perform Wednesday in Boston and Thursday in Philadelphia, but those shows have been postponed. She is set to resume her “Rock Witchu Tour” dates on Saturday in Greensboro, N.C., according to the AP.

The singer, who is on her first North American tour in seven years, is set to play the new BOK Center in Tulsa on Oct. 26. It seems that her present illness won’t hinder her from playing that date.
Tickets for her Tulsa show go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. For more information, go to www.bokcenter.com.
