MADONNA has cancelled the last of her American Madame X tour shows, complaining of being in “indescribable pain”.
The 61-year-old singer told fans she had been left in tears while performing at a show in Miami days earlier because of injuries.
She posted a video of the performance on Instagram, writing: “As I climbed the ladder to sing Batuka On Saturday night in Miami I was in tears from the pain of my injuries, which has been indescribable for the past few days.
“With every song I sang, I said a prayer that I would make it to the next and get thru the show. My prayers were answered, And I made it.”
Madonna cancelled tour dates earlier this month after being tortured by the pain but says she had chosen to perform regardless.
Now, she told fans, she has been forced to change her mind on that front.
The star wrote: “I consider myself a warrior I never quit, I never give in, I never give up!!
“However this time I have to listen to my body And accept that my pain is a warning I want to say how deeply sorry I am to all my fans. For having to cancel my last show.
“I spent the last two days with doctors. Scans, ultra sounds, Xrays. Poking and probing and more tears.
“They have made it very clear to me that if l’am to continue my tour— I must rest for as long as possible so that I don’t inflict further and Irreversible damage to my body.”
She still has European tour dates to fulfil in January.
Last week the parents of Madonna’s new toyboy lover revealed that she is older than they are – but said they support the romance despite the 36-year age gap.
The star had been seen cuddling up to 25-year-old backup dancer Ahlamalik Williams on a balcony in Miami.
