Madonna canceled this weekend's shows in Boston.
Her Madame X tour was to play the city's Wang Theater Saturday through Monday, but due to "overwhelming pain," she scrubbed the dates on doctor's orders.
She told her followers on Instagram, "Please forgive this unexpected turn of events. Doing my show every night brings me so much joy and to cancel is a kind of punishment for me, but the pain I’m in right now is overwhelming, and I must rest and follow doctor’s orders so I can come back stronger and better and continue the Madame X journey with all of you."
The shows will not be rescheduled and ticket-holders will automatically be refunded.
Madonna now has a little over a week to get ready for her next show -- December 7th in Philadelphia. (Variety)
