Madonna cancels another performance in Paris after suffering a fall – should she cancel the whole tour?

The ‘Madame X Tour’ has suffered several setbacks after Madonna repeatedly injured herself. The singer now walks with a cane and undergoes six hours of therapy – three before and three after each show.

The 61-year-old singer took to Instagram to share the latest cancellation with her fans.

“Here I am – Flesh and blood,” the singer wrote. “If only knees didn’t twist and cartilage didn’t tear, and nothing hurt, and tears never fell out of our eyes. I fell two nights ago on stage when a chair was literally pulled out from underneath me by mistake, and I landed on the floor on my tail bone.”

“I made it through the show last night, but just barely because I hate disappointing,” she continued. “Even I can see that this broken doll held together with tape and glue needs to stay in bed and rest for a few days so she can finish the tour with a smile on her face and in one piece. Thank you for your understanding, Paris!” she finished.

Madonna is on the last leg of her ‘Madame X Tour’ with a handful more dates in Paris. The tour wraps up on March 11, with six more Paris dates.

Madonna has two appearances back-to-back on March 3 & 4 – something she has complained about in the past. Since the start of the tour last September, she has pulled out of 13 scheduled performances due to injury. Some production issues in New York and Los Angeles mean the tour has 15 show cancellations.

She canceled three appearances in Boston due to what she called “overwhelming pain.” She also canceled two performances in London in January due to injuries from performing.

Maybe it’s time to cancel the rest of the tour, Madonna?

    Madonna is a greedy grandma man hating harridan who should have withdrawn from the music scene 10 years ago. She is worth700 million dollars. No female pop star has ANY respect for her. She should be raising her grandchildren. Instead she thinks she should prance around a stage like a meth head looking for her next fix. Just stop. Please. We are begging you. Just stop.

      She’s actually doing very well. Great album, 4 #1’s in the clubs and an awesome tour. Almost ALL current female pop stars praise her. Check YouTube. You just personally don’t like her and that’s ok. No need to act like a moron about it.

    Dear Ashley King – This is classic fake news. Madonna did fall but surely did not cancel – let alone abruptly.

    Please do some research before writing.

    Best, Mark

    I feel that Madonna has always been lead by her ego instead of being led by a moral compass. I wasn’t surprised 10 years ago when she missed her maternal uncle’s funeral where she was born, only to spend that day promoting her Children’s book in an interview. Let’s hope she shows compassion in 2020.
