Madonna Cancels Another Show, This Time in Lisbon, With 45 Minutes Notice, Hopes to Return Tomorrow (“Fingers Crossed”)


Madonna is certainly suffering from her blown out knee. She cancelled another show, this time in Lisbon last night with 45 minutes notice. She wrote on Instagram: “Thank you again Lisbon! 🇵🇹 Sorry I had to cancel tonight but I must listen to my body and rest!! That white Port.🍸 got me through the rest of the show! See you on Tuesday fingers crossed”

Last night’s show was the 8th to get scrapped on the Madame X tour. She toasted the audience and her dancers at the previous show with some White Port, the most she’s had to drink, she says, so far on the tour. Madonna is worth at least $50 million. Maybe it’s time to rethink this tour and sit more, or cancel the rest of it until and if she’s recovered.
