Madonna’s Madame X tour ended its North American run a day early. The “Like a Virgin” artist canceled her scheduled Sunday show in Miami and took to social media two days later to explain what happened.
The 61-year-old performer shared on Instagram Tuesday that she canceled the last show of the tour because of unspecified injuries that caused her pain “which has been indescribable for the past few days.”
To illustrate her point, she shared a video from the final North America performance, which took place Saturday.
“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,” the “God Control” singer 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.”
Madonna apologized to her fans: “I want to say how deeply sorry I am to all my fans. For having to cancel my last show.”
She noted that after consulting with her doctors, she learned her body needs time to rest to continue the Madame X tour. The artist has European tour dates planned into March 2020.
USA TODAY reached out to Madonna’s representatives for more information. Ticketmaster and Live Nation did not immediately return requests for comment.
In October, the pop star had to postpone a New York show at the last minute to recover from injuries.
A month later, the singer canceled three shows in Boston to “rest and follow doctor’s orders” after “overwhelming pain.”
The singer postponed the beginning of her Madame X tour. She was scheduled to kick off shows in Brooklyn on Sept. 12, but the tour was pushed back “as a result of the highly specialized production elements being delayed.”
Madonna’s tour stumbles haven’t sat well with some fans. She was hit with a class-action lawsuit for pushing back the start time of one of the Miami shows. The show, originally set for Dec. 17 at 8:30 p.m., was shifted to 10:30 p.m., the lawsuit obtained by NBC News and Buzzfeed said.
Nate Hollander filed the suit in Miami-Dade court in November, charging breach of contract and saying Madonna has a history of tardiness and the concert team should have known the show would not go on at the scheduled start time.
