Update: Madonna statement added
A couple of hours before Madonna was scheduled to go on stage for the final Madame X tour concert of the North American leg last night, ticket buyers were told the show was cancelled.
An email went out with the following message…
We regret to inform you that Madonna is unable to perform this evening. The Madame X concert scheduled for tonight December 22nd at The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater is cancelled.
No official word yet, but some fans are reporting it was due to a twisted ankle.
Update: Madonna has added the following statement on Instagram…
As I climbed the ladder to sing Batuka On Saturday night in Miami
I was in tears from the pain of my injuries,
Which has been indescribable for the past few days
With every song I sang, I said a prayer that I would make it to the next and get thru the show.
My prayers were answered,
And I made it.
I consider myself a warrior
I never quit, I never give in, I never give up!! However this time I have to listen to my body
And accept that my pain is a warning
I want to say how deeply sorry I am to all my fans. For having to cancel my last show
I spent the last two days with doctors
Scans, ultra sounds, Xrays
Poking and probing and more tears.
They have made it very clear to me that if l’am to continue my tour— I must rest for as long as possible so that I don’t inflict further and Irreversible damage to my body. I have never let an injury stop me from performing but this time i have to accept that there is no shame in being human and having to press the pause button………….. I thank you all for your understanding, love and support. As the Words to Batuka go……….. It’s a Long Road……….Lord Have Mercy🙏🏼. Things have got to change.
And they will because
MADAME ❌. is a fighter!! Happy Holidays to Everyone ♥️🎄 #madamextheatre #thefillmoremiamibeach @orquestra.batukadeiras.pt
