Fans are fearing for Madonna‘s well-being, after yet another mishap on her much-plagued ‘Madame X World Tour.’
A succession of dramas have dented the theater trek, including a string of cancelled shows, postponements, and late starts. Much of which the singer has attributed to health issues.
The latter struck again this week during Madge’s stop in Paris.
According to multiple reports, the 61-year-old was left in tears after falling off of a chair while performing on stage.
Already open about struggling with hip and knee injuries, she cried as assisted off-stage with a cane and the help of dancers.
The benefits of the tour’s strict no-recording policy have spared the diva from a spectacle being made out of the accident. For, attendees are required to place their phones in a super secure pouch that only opens at the end of the performance.
Sadly, the incessant issues surrounding the tour seem to be lending credence to those who expressed concern about how ambitious the theater venture was.
Ageism is wack (and we’ll continue to speak up about that at any and every turn), however the body has its limits. Especially for an act like Madge who has toured aggressively during the course of her incredible career.
From our vantage point, this always should have been a stadium tour; one which would have seen her perform less dates than her usual arena treks but make just as much (if not more) when it comes to her box office gross. She’s a superstar and would no doubt have made it rain as she always does.
To see her drive in the opposite direction (i.e. super small shows, with a mapping that ultimately called for more from her physically) was all sorts of confusing.
In any case, we wish Madonna a speedy recovery.
UPDATE: The star has confirmed the reports in a statement…
