On January 31 2020, Madonna shared this announcement with her fans through social media channels:
A note to all my fans:
As you all know I have multiple injuries and have had to cancel shows to give me time to recover.
So as not to surprise you, I want to let you know ahead of time that I will be cancelling 2 shows – on Feb 4 and Feb 11th at the Palladium in London. Because doing 3 shows in a row is too much on my body and in fact my doctors insist I take a day off after every show but I believe can manage if I do 2 shows then I rest!
It’s a miracle I have gotten this far but a-lot has to do with the fact that I do 6 hours of rehab every day. 3 hours before each show and 3 after with multiple therapies. I have also switched to flat shoes and modified difficult parts of the show. This has helped enormously but I still need to be careful and of course rest is the best medicine.
Of course I never want to cancel any show and I’m determined that I will make it to the end if I pace myself.
God Willing 🙏🏼

Thank you!! Madame X
Rock Hard Madame X-Madonna, I’ll say a prayer for you tonight! You’re the best! Love Rabbit Bunny!
From what I’ve read she tore a ligament back in October, and that can take 6 to 8 weeks to heal up. Her manager should’ve advised her to postpone the show until she was fully healed up that way people wouldn’t have lost air fare, hotels, etc…
On top of that she and her team should’ve went over the tour schedule and advised them not too book them so close. It has nothing to do with age because there are many older than Madonna doing tours.
I feel like when the tour is finished she will take months off, and maybe start another leg or two like she did with Sticky and Sweet
Another thing I’ve seen are fans advising her to just sit and sing. So who knows!! We wish her the best!!
