Madonna has resumed her Madame X tour after cancelling her first night in London after being ‘plagued’ by injuries.

The singer, 61, made her return to the stage at the London Palladium – which holds just over 2,200 people, for her smallest-ever full-length concert in the UK.

In order to make her performance even more special for the audience, fans were asked to store their mobile phones in sealed pouches throughout the show so they weren’t disturbed during her performance.

She was later seen leaving the theatre with her rumoured boyfriend, Ahlamalik Williams, 26, who is also one of her dancers.

Following the visual extravaganza she had just given her fans, it’s no wonder she wanted to dress down and be comfortable for the ride home, and she went for a personalised Versace dressing gown with her ‘M’ logo on the back, with matching black trainers with a gold chain on them as she headed to her waiting car.

Madonna looked back to full fitness as she performed for her fans in London, after having to cancel the first show of her run in the city.

She had told fans: ‘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.’

Rumours that Madonna may be dating Alhlamalik surfaced towards the end of 2019 after the pair were photographed looking close as they hung out with Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes, in Miami.

Ahlamalik has been touring with Madge since 2015 and appeared in her video for God Control, released in 2019.

The dancer’s father, Drue, claimed to TMZ in December that Ahlamalik has been ‘dating Madonna for a little over a year’, and met his parents in September when she was in New York.

He claimed that Madonna also invited them to her suite at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas in November, where her personal chef cooked them all dinner.

Drue told the publication: ‘Love has no age. My son is livin’ la Vida Loca, and I’m just happy for him.’
