The Madame X Tour came to an abrupt end in Paris on March 8 after the French government banned gatherings of more than 1,000 people due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Madonna on March 1 wrote on Instagram about hurting her knees while falling on stage two nights prior ‘when a chair was literally pulled out from underneath me by mistake and I landed on the floor on my tail bone.’
She described herself as a’ broken doll held together with tape and glue’ as she announced she was taking some much needed bed rest in hopes of finishing the tour.
The Madame X Tour launched in September 2019 in support of her fourteenth studio album Madam X released in June 2019.
