Madame X Tour - Schedule
← Back to Madame X Tour overview
North America (2019)
Sep. 17, 2019
at the Jackie Gleason Theatre
The tour was scheduled to start on September 12th. Three weeks before the kick-off, it was announced that "due to highly specialized production elements being delayed", the first two shows (Sep. 12 and 14) would be rescheduled to a later date (Oct. 10 and 12), while the third show (Sep. 15) was cancelled.
Live Nation continued to have scheduling problems throughout the tour because they initially didn't calculate enough time for transportation between cities and installation of the stage elements. In many cities, the theatre turned out to be too small for the stage, resulting in technical difficulties. This caused the opening shows in Chicago, San Francisco, London and Paris to be rescheduled, and the one in L.A. cancelled.
Due to a knee injury, Madonna had to take a few days rest, causing the October 7 show in New York to be cancelled. The injury persisted, causing all 3 Boston shows to get cancelled, as well as the final Miami show.
After 3 weeks Xmas holiday in the Maldives, Madonna started her European tour in Lisbon, but due to her injury she again had to cancel the 5th and the 7th show there. In London, she cancelled the opening show on Jan. 27, as well as the shows on Feb. 4 and 11 to have enough rest to deal with her injuries. In Paris, the shows on Feb. 20, Feb. 25, March 1 and March 7 had the same fate.
The last two dates in Paris (which were rescheduled dates for the original starting dates in Paris) were forced to be cancelled after the French government issued a ban on events with more than 1.000 people attending, due to the spreading of infections from the Corona Covid19 virus.
