MDNA Tour - Schedule

Asia (Middle East)
Aug. 31, 2012
The opening show in Tel Aviv, Israel was originally planned for May 29th, followed by a 2nd show on the 31st. Late April, it was announced that the opening show was postponed to the 31st due to 'production delays'. Basically it meant that 1 of the 2 shows was cancelled.
The show in Zagreb, Croatia was cancelled due to 'scheduling conflicts'.
On July 18th, it was announced that Madonna would perform a special showcase at the intimate Olympia venue in Paris. The show took place a week later with some 2,600 fans attending.
The first Dallas show was cancelled due to illness.
The show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was moved from December 1st to December 2nd.
Although the original tour press release announced Australia to be a part of the tour, with dates to be announced for January 2013, this announcement was never made. In July 2012, a spokesperson for Live Nation said the tour would close in South America in December 2012, thereby squashing any hopes of Australian fans that Madonna would finally make it back down under after 20 years. Madonna later apologized and said the Australian leg was cancelled because she "needed to spend time with her kids".
