Madonna Cancels 9th Show on London Leg of 'Madame X Tour' & Says Doctor Advised Her to Rest Because of Injuries
Over the weekend, Madonna took to social media to share some disappointing news with her fans. She revealed that she had to cancel another tour date due to medical reasons.
The singing sensation announced that she was canceling her international “Madame X Tour” for Monday, January 27, 2020. The show that was affected was the one that was meant to be held in London.
Madonna suffering from “injuries”
The musician apologized to her fans and promised that those who had bought tickets for the date would be refunded. Ticketmaster said refunds had already been issued and also apologized for the inconvenience.
Wednesday’s show will continue
The artist further announced that her Wednesday, January 29 show would be going ahead as planned. Madonna, 61, included a photo of herself alongside the Instagram note. The canceled London date was supposed the first of 15 shows at the London Palladium.
She’s set to have 13 more performances at the venue before moving on with her tour to Paris. Her latest cancelation comes less than a week after she canceled a show with just 45 minutes' notice at the Coliseu Theatre in Lisbon, Portugal.

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. 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. 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. Again I am deeply sorry to disappoint anyone and please know that it hurts me more than you can imagine to have to cancel any shows. Thank you again for your understanding. 🙏🏼.
Madonna’s past tour cancelations
At the time, the singer had, once again, taken to her Instagram page to share the disappointing news. She explained that she had to “rest” and listen to her body.
Show canceled 45 minutes before
Ticket holders for the January 19 show received an email at 19:45 on Sunday night, which informed them that Madonna would not be appearing on stage at 20:30 as planned. Once again, the star blamed an injury for her absence.

Please forgive this unexpected turn of events. Doing my show every night brings me so much joy and to cancel is a kind of punishment for me but the pain I’m in right now is overwhelming and I must rest and follow doctors orders so i can come back stronger and better and continue the Madame ❌ journey with all of you. #madamextheatre
Singer allegedly suffers from a “bad knee”
The artist hasn’t revealed what her “injuries” are, but in November 2019, she reportedly told a San Francisco audience that she was suffering from a “bad knee” due to a torn ligament. The "Madame X Tour" was also canceled last November at Boston's Boch Center Wang Theatre.
Madonna explained that she was suffering from overwhelming pain and needed rest.
