Madonna Cancels Final US Tour Date, Europe Shows Still Scheduled
Madonna cancelled her Miami show on Sunday at the last minute. The singer then took to Instagram to explain it was due to "indescribable pain" from an injury.
In the post she said, "I spent the last two days with doctors. Scans, ultrasounds, X Rays, 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. I have never let an injury stop me from performing but this time i have to accept that there is no shame in being human and having to press the pause button."

In October, Madonna canceled a New York City date due to a knee injury and she canceled three shows in Boston last month, citing unspecified pain.
Madonna's European leg of the "Madame X" tour is still scheduled to begin on January 12 in Lisbon, Portugal.
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. 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.

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. I have never let an injury stop me from performing but this time i have to accept that there is no shame in being human and having to press the pause button..............
