Janet Jackson is rescheduling part of her Australian tour so she can support her family during the trial of her brother Michael's doctor.

Dr. Conrad Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's 2009 death. In a statement Sunday, Janet Jackson
said she spoke with her family Saturday and realized they needed to
be together.

The shows were scheduled in Melbourne on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday; to make them up, she'll perform one night, on Nov. 3, in
Rod Laver Arena.

Murray is on trial in Los Angeles. He is accused of being negligent in his care of the superstar, who died of an overdose of the anesthetic propofol. The Jackson family has been a regular presence at the trial.
