Madonna cancels Lisbon show: 'I must listen to my body'

Madonna cancels Lisbon show: 'I must listen to my body'

Madonna did not elaborate on what led her to cancel, though the singer has previously canceled shows due to unspecified injuries.

Madonna canceled her latest concert with just 45 minutes' notice - the eighth show scrapped on her Madame X world tour, according to a report Monday.

"Sorry I had to cancel tonight but I must listen to my body and rest!" the star said later on Instagram.

She also joked about her "25 injuries" and told the audience "don't pay attention to what goes on from the waist down", reported Lisbon-based music magazine Blitz.

With stage time scheduled for 8.30pm, it gave fans only 45 minutes warning that the show had been pulled.

Madonna said she hoped the tour would resume this week, writing on Instagram: "See you on Tuesday, fingers crossed".

She added: "That white Port got me through the rest of the show!"

While Mackie will assume the central role, there is still the possibility that Joel Kinnaman may return in some way. There's no trailer as yet for the second season, but Netflix has offered some details of what's in store.


A month later, she canceled three shows in Boston to "rest and follow doctor's orders" after "overwhelming pain".

A knee injury was blamed for her bailing on a concert in San Francisco past year.

Madonna's world tour sees her plays several dates in smaller venues.

In a video posted on social media last week, she was shown kneeling while rehearsing for an earlier show in Lisbon.

Recently, Madonna took to Instagram and announced that she is cancelling her show in Lisbon.

Madonna's scheduled Lisbon date is not the first cancellation of the tour. She was scheduled to kick off shows in Brooklyn on September 12, but the tour was pushed back "as a result of the highly specialized production elements being delayed".

Madonna is due to arrive in the United Kingdom on January 27, followed by 15 shows at the London Palladium.
