Madonna gave her social media followers a glimpse of her behind-the-scenes look following news that she canceled her first show in London.


Madonna seemed to have fully recovered from her ankle injury until she didn't. She canceled her first show in London but didn't leave her followers empty-handed.

Taking to her Instagram story, the singer gave her followers and fans a glimpse of her behind-the-scenes look. The snap, which got taken during rehearsals, showed Madonna getting her makeup done.

The blonde beauty had her hair in '80s retro style with styling pins holding the curls up. She wore black underwear, glossy red lipstick, and fashion jewelry pieces adorned her neck.

Madonna made her lips into a pout, and her two arms were stretched forward as she took a selfie. The snap had no captions except for the hashtag, "Madame X tour."

The "Material Girl" singer canceled her tour in the latter part of 2019 after her doctor advised her to stay off her ankle. She recently arrived in London to kickstart the concerts again.

Madonna would return to the stage on Wednesday, and it would mark the first of fifteen shows at the Palladium.

On Instagram, Madonna shared a boomerang clip of herself. In it, she wore a shimmering blue outfit, and held up both of her hands with a mic in her hand; she appeared to be on stage.



The singer had on a short brunette wig and had a smile on her face. In the caption, the American singer/songwriter wrote,

"Hello, London. we finally made it."

Madonna, in another post, shared another boomerang clip of herself in a chair, attempting to take a selfie. She joked in the caption that it was time for a bit of "Self-reflection."



The 61-year-old singer was supposed to kick start her tour at the London Palladium. The performance would be her first in the English capital since 2015.

Madonna would return to the stage on Wednesday, and it would mark the first of fifteen shows at the Palladium. She apologized to her fans for the cancelation and refunded those who already bought tickets.

The singer's doctor recommended bed rest, and she's been on it. Last week, she also canceled her concert dates in Lisbon, Portugal.

Madonna's performance at New York City and Los Angeles also got affected. Her Boston and Miami Beach shows also got canceled, but hopefully, the London show would be the last.
