Queen of Pop Madonna spent most of the 2019 holiday season recuperating from a bruised knee and ego after being royally slammed by press and fans alike for a slew of cancelled dates on her latest worldwide jaunt, the ‘Madame X’ tour (as we reported here).
Designed to support her latest LP of the same name, the trek began its European leg on January 12th in the diva’s beloved city of Lisbon, Portugal (her home since 2017 and location she says acted as a muse for the album). Despite what appeared to be a return to form (as evidenced by the rave reviews of the concert’s attendees), by January 19 the Pop icon was forced to cancel another show, presumably due to the same ailment.
Taking to social media, she revealed:
“Thank you again Lisbon!” she wrote. “Sorry I had to cancel tonight but I must listen to my body and rest!!”
Yet, while the 61-year-old also expressed hope she would be back onstage by Tuesday (January 21) to perform at The Lisbon Coliseum through Thursday (January 22), it was announced on her web site moments ago tonight’s show at the venue has been axed as well.
Via her official web site, it was announced:
That Grape Juice joins the chorus of well-wishers who are hoping for a speedy recovery for Madge.
