The Madame X Tour has seen shows be postponed and cancelled from the jump-off. Queen Madonna is a “perfectionist” and so she needed to make sure everything was in tip-top shape before it started. It takes time to perfect dancing around a stage with an eye-patch–I don’t know how pirates did it. And then the tour started but she kept cancelling–citing a “torn ligament” and “bad knee”. Well, looks like she ain’t healing quick, as Madonna has canceled another show in Lisbon. Sorry, Lisbon-gays!
BBC says that 61-year-old Madonna gave 45 minutes notice for this show’s abrupt end. Madonna fans got an email from the Coliseu Dis Recreios:
“We regret to inform you that Madonna is unable to perform this evening.”
Madonna hasn’t really explained fully what’s wrong with her, but she’s alluded to it a shit ton, talking about “pain” and even posting about her “careful” rehearsal prep:
Madonna did do one show on Saturday night in Lisbon and it seemed to go off pretty well. A Coliseu Dis Recreios staff member said:
“She did a great show here last night so you and the other fans here tonight are really unlucky.”
And Madonna posted about it too:
She apologized to fans on Instagram for cancelling, talking about how drinking some alcohol was how she got through the Saturday night show:
Notice how she also teased maybe cancelling on Tuesday with the “fingers crossed”? This Lisbon show is the eighth time Madonna cancelled on the Madame X Tour. She still hasn’t really specified what’s wrong with her; the BBC says a Lisbon-based magazine Blitz reports her telling the audience she has “25 injuries” and:
“Don’t pay attention to what goes on from the waist down.”
She also wore boots at an earlier concert instead of heels and apparently said of them:
“They are very ugly but it was either wear these boots or cancel the show.”
And she’s also posted the ice-baths she’s been treating her “overwhelming pain” with:
Homegirl is going through it. I would wonder what’s wrong with her but then I remember that she’s dating that young guy. Ice bath on the vagina? Legs not working right? Girl: that’s some sex injuries. Madame X getting that good-good! She needs to stop getting laid for the rest of the tour! Either it’s that or the curse Lady Gaga put on her when she stole her life has finally blossomed into its end-phase.
