On May 24 2004, Madonna launched her sixth concert tour – the Re-Invention World Tour – with the first of three sold-out concerts at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
Madonna was scheduled to perform at The Forum on May 24th, 25th and 27th, however the May 25th show was rescheduled to May 26th due to illness. A brief statement posted on Madonna’s website on May 25th read:
“Madonna has the stomach flu and was ordered by her doctor to rest this evening. She will be back at 100% [on May 26th] and can’t wait to entertain her fans.”
All subsequent dates on the Re-Invention World Tour proceeded as scheduled.
She is one of Rock’s ultimate lifers, that Madonna-La Ciccone’s manifesto anthem Die Another Day is a beautiful song-the best song from American Life. Serves as the prelude to the final chapter Easy Ride”=in which Madonna writes “What I want is to live forever!” To that I say Amen Madonna!
