Madonna has just cancelled two more tour dates on her “Madame X” tour, with the 61-year-old pop icon axing two shows at the London Palladium that were scheduled for next week, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11.

In an Instagram post, she explained she’s suffered “multiple injuries” and has cancelled numerous shows on the tour in order “to give myself time to recover.”

As she explained, her doctors “insist i take a day off after every show but i believe can manage if i do 2 shows then I rest! It’s a miracle i have gotten this far but a lot has to do with the fact that i do 6 hours of rehab every day.”

In addition, she said, she’s “switched to flat shoes and modified difficult parts of the show. This has helped enormously but i still need to be careful and of course rest is the best medicine.”

A note to my fans: As you all know i have multiple injuries and have had to cancel shows to give myself time to recover. So as not to surprise you i want to let you know ahead of time that I will be cancelling 2 shows- on Feb 4 and Feb 11th at the Palladium in London. because doing 3 shows in a row is too much on my body and in fact my doctors insist i take a day off after every show but i believe can manage if i do 2 shows then I rest! Its a miracle i have gotten this far but a-lot has to do with the fact that i do 6 hours of re-hab every day. 3 hours before show and 3 after with multiple therapies. I have also switched to flat shoes and modified difficult. parts of the show. This has helped enormously but i still need to be careful and of course rest is the best medicine. i never want to cancel any show and Im determined that i will make it to the end if i pace myself. God Willing 🙏🏼 Refunds will be automatically issued to the credit card on which tickets were ordered. I appreciate your understanding and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.  Thank you!!

I am deeply sorry that I have to cancel my concert scheduled for Monday January 27th in London. Under doctors 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. The last thing I want to do is disappoint my fans or compromise the integrity of my show. So I will keep going until I cannot. As always- anyone who purchased a ticket will be refunded for tickets purchased that evening. The show on Wednesday January 29th will go as scheduled. Again I am deeply sorry to disappoint anyone and please know that it hurts me more than you can imagine to have to cancel any shows. Thank you again for your understanding. 🙏🏼.

In the past few weeks, Madonna has cancelled a number of shows, including three in Boston, one in Miami, and most recently a concert in Lisbon, Portugal.

Madonna took to Instagram last week to apologize to her Lisbon fans, while blaming an illness or injury as to why she could not take the stage.
