Queen of Pop Madonna delivered some royally disappointing news today (August 27) to longtime fans gearing up to catch her on the highly anticipated ‘Madame X’ tour.
A step away from the arena jaunts of the diva’s past, the new trek has been billed an ‘intimate outing’ and is comprised of a series of theater dates around the world. Designed in support of Madge’s latest chart-topping album, the June 2019-released ‘Madame X,’ the tour – announced May 2019 (as we reported here) – also boasts a unique residency-inspired schedule as every city visited will be privy to multiple shows.
As fans continued to gather their coins for the pricey tickets, however, the singer’s team delivered reports that indicate the show’s kickoff has been delayed. Find out why inside:
Via a press release lifted to the Pop royal’s official web site, it’s been revealed:
As a result of the highly specialized production elements being delayed, Live Nation has confirmed that the first 3 concerts of Madonna’s Madame X Tour – a series of rare and intimate performances – have been delayed and that the tour will now start on Tuesday, September 17th at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House.
The shows previously scheduled for September 12th and 14th at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House have been rescheduled to October 10th and 12th respectively. Tickets for the September 12th performance will be honored at the October 10th event. Tickets for the previously scheduled September 14th concert will be honored at the October 12th show. Refunds for either date if required will available via the original ticket purchase link accessed either via desktop or mobile. Unfortunately, due to scheduling limitations and venue availability, the show previously scheduled for September 15th is cancelled and refunds will be automatically issued to fans with tickets to this show.
Madonna issued a statement on the matter:
“Madame ❌ Is a perfectionist and wants to give you the most unique, magical, and musical experience. She underestimated the amount of time it would take to bring this kind of intimate theatrical experience to you and wants it to be perfect!!!
Thank you so much for your understanding.”
While reports of poor Stateside ticket sales have plagued the tour since its announcement, Madonna’s international audience can’t wait to set their eyes and ears on the diva apparently as she’s added multiple shows in Paris, Lisbon, London, and more due to high demand.
