- Madonna tour: Madame X star ‘in pain’ as she delivers bad news
Madonna has not revealed why she cancelled the show, but in a previous post on Instagram this week the singer showed herself warming up while “injured”.
The footage saw the star wearing knee supports and back in November at a San Francisco gig she said how she had been suffering from a “torn ligament” and “bad knee.”
Meanwhile, other video haves have seen her having post-show ice baths to soothe “multiple injuries” that have been causing “overwhelming pain”.
Back in 2017, Madonna reacted strongly to calls for her to retire from music.
Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, she said: “[My ex-husband] used to say to me, ‘But why do you have to do this again? Why do you have to make another record? Why do you have to go on tour? Why do you have to make a movie?’
“And I’m like, ‘Why do I have to explain myself?’ I feel like that’s a very sexist thing to say.”
“Does somebody ask Steven Spielberg why he’s still making movies?
“Hasn’t he had enough success? Hasn’t he made enough money? Hasn’t he made a name for himself?”

Madonna continued: “Did somebody go to Pablo Picasso and say, ‘Okay, you’re 80 years old. Haven’t you painted enough paintings?’ No.”
“I’m so tired of that question. I just don’t understand it.
“I’ll stop doing everything that I do when I don’t want to do it anymore.
“I’ll stop when I run out of ideas. I’ll stop when you f**king kill me. How about that?”
Madonna is the best-selling female music artist of all time with claimed sales of as much as 300 million since her first charted record in 1982.
Meanwhile, she’s the fifth most successful music act ever after The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and Elton John.
Madonna is also the highest-grossing solo touring artist of all time, having made over $1.4 billion from concert tickets.
Her Madame X Tour will continue until March 11, 2020 with dates at Le Grand Rex in Paris, France.
