WASHINGTON (AP) _ Janet Jackson has returned to the stage in
Washington, D.C., after an illness forced her to cancel a string of
shows on her ``Rock Witchu'' tour.

Fireworks exploded at the outset of her show at the Verizon Center, and Jackson emerged from the smoke.

Jackson's publicist said Wednesday she has been suffering from migraine-associated vertigo, which led to two weeks of scrapped shows. She is being treated for the illness, which is characterized
by dizziness, imbalance and other symptoms.

Manager Kenneth Crear says in a statement that Jackson is feeling better and ready to continue her first North American tour in seven years. Upcoming stops include Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, New York and East Rutherford, N.J.
