What is going on?

FB_IMG_1570594650382.jpg

I have tickets to the Chicago show on the 16th and I have not been refunded.

I HATE to say this, but I also think the rest of the New York dates should be cancelled. She was there for around two weeks, so people that wanted to see her in New York had ample dates to do so. She already moved the 10/15 Chicago date, which gives her another day of rest. With well over a week of being off of her knee she has a better chance of healing up. I don't think she's done anything truly bad to her knee, and she probably only needs a few days of rest, but honestly, the more rest the better because we all know that it would take a true act of God for Madonna to cancel the tour.

I feel bad for her. Bones and joints and muscles and tissue (oh my) are definitely more susceptible to injury as we age. Maybe that was the reason for smaller safer dancing. Pray she recovers quickly

In New York especially out of all cities, a large portion of attendees aren't from New York, especially as it had the most dates in the US of the lottery options.  It's fine for her to cancel, but she needs to do so ASAP and not an hour before.  There's nothing more devastating than showing up to a show and finding out it's cancelled then.  Most fans aren't made of money unlike Madonna.  I also feel especially bad for these last 2 shows' ticketholders as most will be rescheduled tickets from the original opening night dates, so they will be suffering a second cancellation.

I didn't mean to come across as harsh. You are correct that many people that went/plan to go to the NY shows aren't local and some are international. I suppose I mean that if the tour is to continue it wouldn't be fair for Chicago attendees (and yes, I am attending the 16th if the show goes ahead - maybe a little bias here) because there were always far fewer dates and therefore the options for attendance were always smaller.

I understand what you meant, I just mean that for everyone (both Madonna and her fans) it would be better to have as much advance notice as possible if a cancellation is necessary.  The first time last minute is understandable, but it's no time to be heroic.  Her fans aren't made of money, so making a habit of last minute cancellations to try to push through is the worst thing that she can do.

I know you weren't being serious, but I honestly think this would be a real badass move on her part!

She could even crack jokes about it in the show.

Knee injuries take months to heal. Three days ain't gonna cut it. Expecting more dates to be cancelled/postponed. She really shouldn't have booked all those back to back theatre dates. Three or maximum four shows a week would have been much more realistic and easier on the body. 

We don’t know the full details but based on the bandages during rehearsals we can speculate it’s probably a longer term injury which would mean 2-3 weeks rest would be beneficial.

If she needs 2-3 weeks off she could postpone Chicago entirely. It would be much safer for the overall tour, they can come back after Paris and add more NYC shows while they are there. If she pushes herself too hard now there’s a risk she will have to cancel more dates later on.

And I know you aren't being serious either, but the stairs don't have rails on either side, so... :tongue:

Nah, I was ~kinda~ being serious.  There's a lot of humorous banter in the show, so why not a joke about "my grandma knees" and "needing a lift to get up and down those fucking steps" ?

If I were in the audience (which sadly I won't be), I would totally appreciate her owning this unfortunate knee situation.

Obviously I don't know what kind of lift could logistically be added to the stage...

A good piece of 2x4 could suffice as a rail lol

Or she could sit in a swing over the audience

Lol well if we're being serious, you'd need more than one lift.  The stairs are actually 4 stair pieces that form 2 layers of stairs of different heights depending on the song and they all move around in different directions in different patterns.

I think if Madonna truly needed 2 to 3 weeks of rest her doctor would have told her so. After finding out they sent out part of the staging for repair I wonder if the delay isn't a combination of the knee and the necessary repairs.

Seems that there are 2 groups of reviews: negatives from people that didnt even attend and positives from people that did attend.

Simple as that.

Positive reviews on this forum are from Madonna stans who did attend. 

And the negatives are from people who are seeing it critically. The more sound and vision which is released is confirming some of the criticisms of the show. MadameX could have been WAY better.

Hey guys I’ve literally been dying in the hospital. I’m alive. How’s the tour going?? Lol

Oh no. I'm so sorry. I hope you are going to be ok? 🙏🙏🙏 As for Madonna, she has a knee injury and cancelled some shows. I think she and the show will be back tomorrow night ( correct me if I'm wrong all) but there's a lot of talk she may cancel more.

Apparently no 10$ ticket competition for today. Bad sign.

But people are receiving confirmation mails for Chicago, stating the show starts at 1030.

Icon just posted an announcement asking not to arrive later than 930.

I was joking but agree at it wouldn't bother me one bit when Madonna starts to own her age. We have the dance routines and choreography galore to re watch and l know its part of M but l can do without it to showcase an album like Madame X. For me it is and always has been her voice and the warmth and feeling she can evoke with her natural voice and passion that l come back for. But l am glad l decided not to travel for this tour with the vocal effects in use so much and no real special treats for fans aside from frozen, Rescue me just seems cruel. Would especially love to hear Batuka with her natural voice. l know l would love it all if l could attend

If the show does go on as scheduled tonight, Live Nation needs to make a decision on Monday's show as many ticket holders are waiting in limbo, not knowing when it may be re-scheduled. If Monday's show is indeed canceled, we can choose to buy tickets to attend tonight or Sat's show.
