In a statement posted on Instagram last night (November 27), the ‘Madame X’ star explained that she would have to cancel all three of her planned dates in Boston on doctor’s orders. Madonna was due to play three nights at Boston’s Center Wang Theatre.
Madonna wrote: “Please forgive this unexpected turn of events. Doing my show every night brings me so much joy and to cancel is a kind of punishment for me but the pain I’m in right now is overwhelming.”
She added: “I must rest and follow doctors orders so i can come back stronger and better and continue the Madame X journey with all of you.”
Recently, the musician also posted a picture of her having an ice bath for “multiple injuries” following her show in Los Angeles. You can see the posts below:

The singer shelved a date at the Brooklyn Academy of Music after being advised to rest.
A statement on her website at the time confirmed: “Unfortunately, Madonna’s Madame X concert this evening at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House is postponed.
Madonna added on Instagram: “It’s hard for Madame X to admit that she is also a human being made of flesh and blood and she must rest for the next 3 days to insure full recovery for her knee.
“I am not a quitter. This hurts me more than you can imagine. Its time to take those heels and fishnets off for a few days! Thank you for your understanding.”
In a five-star review earlier this month, NME described the Madame X residency as a “colourful riot of rebellion, politics, and high camp theatrics”.
