Today In Madonna History: March 9, 2020

On March 9 2020, Madonna was forced to cancel the remaining Madame X Tour shows in Paris after French authorities banned events of more than 1,000 people to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

A statement posted on Madonna’s official website states that her March 10-11 shows in Paris would no longer take place:

“Following official notification from the Office of the Police this morning prohibiting all events with an audience attendance of over 1000, Live Nation regrets to announce the final two Madame X performances previously re-scheduled to 10-March and 11-March are forced to be cancelled. Tickets are refundable at point of purchase. We regret the disappointment to fans.”

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. ┬á3 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 ­čÖĆ­čĆ╝

Refunds will be automatically issued to the credit card on which tickets were ordered.

I appreciate your understanding and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you!! Madame X
