Madonna may be larger than life, but she’s human too. The superstar announced on Sunday (March 1) that she had to cancel that evening’s Paris show of her Madame X tour due to an injury she sustained during a concert a few nights prior.
“Here I Am——Flesh and Blood. If only knees didn’t twist and cartilage didn’t tear and nothing hurt and tears never fell out of our eyes,” she began in a lengthy Instagram post explaining the cancellation to fans. “But alas they do.”
Madonna -- who has experienced several injuries during the tour thus far -- went on to explain how she got hurt this time. “I Fell 2 nights ago on stage when a chair was literally pulled out from underneath me by mistake and I landed on the floor on my tail bone,” she said. “I made it thru the show last night but just barely because I hate disappointing. However today even I can see that this broken doll held together with tape and glue, needs to stay in bed and rest for a few days so she can finish the tour with a smile on her face and in one piece.”
