‘Hung Up’ hitmaker Madonna is temporarily hanging up her dancing shoes after sustaining a knee injury while cranking out the hits on the ‘Madame X’ world tour.
Already disappointing fans by postponing its start date due to a series of ‘technical difficulties’ (as we reported here), now the 61-year-old diva is citing physical difficulties as the cause of its latest delay.
The Pop Queen’s current jaunt, the ‘Madame X’ tour, is described as a “unique theater experience” as it sees her trade out her usual arena and stadium concerts for more intimate venues.
Played as a series of residencies in major cities across the globe (London, Paris, Chicago, Miami, etc.), the sold out trek’s kick off in New York City was originally scheduled to see her play Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) from September 17 until October 12.
However, those in line to see the Pop icon on the October 7th date were greeted with the following report:
“Unfortunately, Madonna’s Madame X concert this evening at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House is postponed. Madonna is currently dealing with a knee injury and has been advised rest for the next three days to assist in her recovery. Fans are encouraged to hold onto their tickets pending information on rescheduling.
The Madame X concerts this Thursday, October 10th and Saturday, October 12th are expected to proceed as scheduled.
We regret the inconvenience to fans. Thank you for understanding.”
Madge took to social media to elaborate:
As this is just the beginning of a long worldwide trek, we’re wishing Madge a speedy recovery. She’s long proven herself defiant of odds, but there’s no denying that a 91-date concert tour is a big undertaking for a person of any age.

Oh no! ?
for some reason this immediately made me think of mj and how he tried to do all those 50 dates and it killed him
she will soldier on but hopefully she wont use drugs to ease the pain thru it all.
that’s how addiction starts
I believe Madonna to be as sober and rigid as she lets on…
I agree but anything can change that
Pain is a powerful motivator
She’s been receiving rave reviews for this tour despite the set being heavy on newer songs. Hope she recovers quickly
Blitch gettin old.
That happens to a lot of artists all the time, age is not the problem.
I hope she’s nice and healthy for them Las Vegas shows cause I will throw a damn fit!
