In the latest in a string of delayed shows and cancellations, pop queen Madonna has just cancelled the first London, England, show of her Madame X tour.
Furious fans took to Twitter to express their dismay over the concert’s cancellation, due to take place on January 27.
With a further 14 nights scheduled at the same venue, fans for the tour’s first night were “massively disappointed” when their phones flared with a text message from Ticketmaster confirming the cancellation.

“Under doctor’s guidance, I have been told to rest for a few days.
“As you all know I have injuries that have plagued me since the beginning of the tour but I must always listen to my body and put my health first.”
Madonna’s cancelled the first London concert of her tour!
A lot of big fans are going to be massively disappointed.
I sympathise that she’s injured herself, but surely it’s best to postpone the whole tour at this point and not have people wasting money on trains/hotels? pic.twitter.com/tBTJ7b3NTv

“As always – anyone who purchased a ticket will be refunded for tickets purchased that evening.”
On the London leg of the tour, the first show is listed as cancelled, while the bulk of the show sets are listed as having low availability.
