In an announcement posted on Friday (31.01.20), Madonna wrote: “As you all know i have multiple injuries and have had to cancel shows to give myself time to recover. So as not to surprise you i want to let you know ahead of time that I will be cancelling 2 shows- on Feb 4 and Feb 11th at the Palladium in London. because doing 3 shows in a row is too much on my body and in fact my doctors insist i take a day off after every show but i believe can manage if i do 2 shows then I rest! (sic)”
The ‘Like A Prayer’ hitmaker believes it’s a “miracle” she can still perform at all, and has said the only way for her to recover is to take the time to “rest” in between her shows.
She added: “Its a miracle i have gotten this far but a-lot has to do with the fact that i do 6 hours of re-hab every day
“3 hours before show and 3 after with multiple therapies. I have also switched to flat shoes and modified difficult. parts of the show. This has helped enormously but i still need to be careful and of course rest is the best medicine (sic)”
Madonna closed her note to fans by apologising for axing the performances.
The star said: “i never want to cancel any show and Im determined that i will make it to the end if i pace myself. God Willing Refunds will be automatically issued to the credit card on which tickets were ordered. I appreciate your understanding and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you!! Madame [X] . #madamextheatre #thelondonpalladium. (sic)”
When the ‘Vogue’ singer took to the stage earlier this week, she told the audience at the Palladium that she was thrilled to have “made it” on stage.
She said: “I’m happy to have made it. How could I not do a show in London.”
