Yes, she cancelled 2 shows, but you said you were still looking for one for Lisbon.  She apologized for the last one.  I suspect the first cancellation "apology" got lost in the shuffle of her daughter's birthday.  And I don't expect her to apologize for every show cancelled. Before the internet, we wouldn't have gotten anything, but possibly a official statement from the venue. 

No.

She didnt apologize for the last one. Not a single word.

An for the one you posted...not even a respectful apology.

I was mistaken on which one she apologized for. The point is; she did apologize for one of them.  Obviously, you enjoy spinning this is all into a negative.  The apology seemed pretty genuine and respectful to me. Then again, I am not trying to assume her pain and what she is capable of tolerating from night to night or trying to assume she's faking some injury.  It's clear she is in pain, but willing to go on various nights, even against her doctors orders.

Do you think Mick Jagger got this much shit thrown at him when he cancelled his shows for heart surgery?  Not at all.  I get Madonna fans are passionate, but you can't tell me the Rolling Stones fans aren't just as passionate and want to see them on tour.  The difference is; their fans are much more sensible and don't expect their favorites to go on the stage when they are in ill health.  And I'm sure Madonna isn't the first entertainer to cancel varied shows throughout their tour because of health issues. 

Any artist should of course cancel if their health dictates and they should communicate it well and with enough notice.

What adds to M fans’ disappointment when she cancels compared to Rolling Stones is that M shows are unique. We will certainly never get to see the MX show again. Very unlikely that we will see Dark Ballet, the Bukaderas etc again. Whereas - with all genuine respect to Jagger - if your Rolling Stones show is cancelled, the next tour’s show if there is one would be identical. Same greatest hits set list and very similar stadium rock live performance. 

When M cancels your only show of the tour there is a sincere feeling that you’re missing a priceless experience and an important part of Madonna history 🙁

That's totally reasonable to think, but the uniqueness of her show shouldn't have to be accounted for her cancellation especially if it's over a health issue. If she was just cancelling because of no apparent reason, then I could understand the uproar.  And I'm not saying people shouldn't be disappointed, but some are just spinning it negatively to make it sound worse.

I totally feel her pain, but she should do the right thing for everyone and either cancel the remaining tour to get well, alter the show, or if she knows she can only do one or two nights then needs a few days off, adjusts the schedule in advance to give everyone time to get refunds, or re book etc.

My ticket is for the 12 February I’ll be surprised if it happens. She isn’t giving herself enough time to recover. I feel for fans that have flights booked and hotels. I’m glad the show is filmed so if it’s cancelled I can at least see what I missed

feel for the fans and feel for her.  Shes such a perfectionist.  This would be killing her.

Its happened to many artists, gaga with her hip, P!nk, Britney with her knee.  Wont tarnish her legacy. 

Just a really shitty situation for everyone.

Really glad its been filmed and hope she can finish it off with no more cancellations for all the fans who have invested in it

Yes that’s how I feel at least it’s been filmed. Most arena tours like britneys and gagas would of been filmed from the screen footage so they could edit something together to put out if they wanted . Madonna’s current tour has no screens  as it’s small venues so I’m pleased it’s been filmed

Oh and plus she can control her future pain which is great. Super powers...

I read this in another forum:

"Wait a minute.
I don't get it at all. How can she be sure that she can't perform on Jan 27, and at the same time, can be sure she'll perform on Jan 29th ????

I mean If you have knee in high pain, you can't say : "ok Monday I can't perform, but on wednesday, I'll be ok for sure" 
???"

Uhm, cancelling Jan 27th means she'll have almost a week's break between the shows (Jan 23 - Jan 29). That gives more time for her to regain a bit of strength. Really isn't rocket science and no crystal ball is needed :).

She needs to take a break and that's the truth. Her injury isn't really getting better and the constant amount of stress she is enduring won't help. 

If she keeps going like this she can end up hurting her knees for good and we all know her age won't help. She better rest now than end up limping or having to use a crane for the rest of her life.

This must be very hard for Madonna, my view is eliminating heals, stairs and some dancing would not compromise the integrity of the show, its not like modifying like a virgin on BA tour or that stairs have some deeper meaning but obviously Madonna is not comfortable to scale back, or to postpone and go get the treatment she needs and come back and finish the tour. I hope she can recover fully.

I totally get people being upset over lost money, but she wasn’t labeled the hardest working woman in the industry at one point for no reason. The injuries she is suffering from is proof of that hard work. Let’s channel some compassion and humility. This isn’t a CD you’re buying. This is a persons health we are speaking of.
