Madonna canceled the final scheduled date of her North American Madame X residency tour after the singer suffered what she described as "indescribable" pain during a show on Saturday night. “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,” she said in the caption to an Instagram video posted on Tuesday (Dec. 24) in which the 61-year-old star appeared to struggle to climb a ladder leading up to the stage of the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater, where she was performing the sixth of a planned seven shows; the seventh gig was slated to take place on Sunday (Dec. 22).
"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. 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," she continued. Madonna said she'd spent the previous two days with doctors getting scans, ultrasounds and Xrays, as well as enduring lots of "poking and probing and more tears."
