Madonna cancels Paris gig following stage fall

It's the third time that the singer has had to pull a Paris date on her 'Madame X Tour'

Madonna was forced to cancel her show in Paris last night (March 1) due to injuries she sustained in an on-stage fall last week.

The singer is currently on the French leg of her ‘Madame X Tour’, with a series of dates taking place at Le Grand Rex in the capital city.

During her gig at the Parisian venue on Thursday (February 27), Madonna sustained an injury after falling on stage when “a chair was literally pulled out from underneath me by mistake and I landed on the floor on my tail bone”.

Writing to fans on Instagram, Madonna said that she managed to finish her subsequent performance on Saturday (February 29) “but just barely, because I hate disappointing” fans.

Here I Am——Flesh and Blood 🩸 If only knees didn’t twist and cartilage didn’t tear and nothing hurt and tears never fell out of our eyes………But alas they do and Thank God for this important reminder that we are human. I Fell 2 nights ago on stage when a chair was literally pulled out from underneath me by mistake and I landed on the floor on my tail bone. I made it thru the show last night but just barely because I hate disappointing. However today even I can see that this broken doll held together with tape and glue, needs to stay in bed and rest for a few days so she can finish the tour with a smile on her face and in one piece. ❌ Thank You for your understanding Paris! 🇫🇷 🙏🏼 #madamextheatre

Last month, Madonna praised Eminem for his recent support of imposing stronger gun control measures in the US.
