Madonna posted on Instagram about having to cancel her first London show date on her Madame X Tour, offering apologies to her fans.
The 61-year-old singer wrote along with a photo of herself: “I am deeply sorry that I have to cancel my concert scheduled for Monday January 27th in London. Under doctors guidance I have been told to rest for a few days. As you all know, I have injuries that have plagued me since the beginning of the tour but I must always listen to my body and put my health first.” She continued: “The last thing I want to do is disappoint my fans or compromise the integrity of my show. So I will keep going until I cannot,” she continued. “As always — anyone who purchased a ticket will be refunded for tickets purchased that evening. The show on Wednesday January 29th will go as scheduled.”
Madonna previously canceled the last North American show of her Madame X Tour in Miami because of injury in December, and three shows in Boston the previous month. In October, she had to postpone one of her shows that was scheduled at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York. On Jan. 19, one of Madonna’s shows in Lisbon, Portugal, was canceled 45 minutes before she scheduled to take the stage.
