First London Show Postponed
Hours after the news of the first two Madame X theatre shows in Paris cancelled and rescheduled as the final dates at Le Grand Rex in March, Live Nation announces that the first London concert at The Palladium has been moved to February 16. Talk about a black Friday for Madonna fans.
Logistics seems to be involved in this new batch of changes to the tour schedule, with an extra day now available between the last show in Lisbon and the first one in London.
Moving the first two shows in Paris – and not only one – apparently made space for two extra days, but the reason becomes clear with the news of February 16 now being the date of the last performance at The Palladium: the gap between the European cities becomes the same and a pattern looks clear.
Here is the full news from Madonna.com, opening with a completely unnecessary celebration of the tour critical success and closing with the shortest apology ever.
Madonna’s Madame X tour launches in Lisbon in January 2020 after a stunning run in the U.S. Reviews for the intimate, theatrical shows have been ecstatic with The London Times giving it 5 stars and describing it as “Intimate risk-taking, rapturously performed” and the New York Times reporting; “Her Madame X show reimagines pop spectacle for a theater stage.”
The Madame X 2020 tour will relaunch in Lisbon on 12-January where it plays 8 sold out shows through January 23rd. It then proceeds to London whereas a result of the highly specialized production elements, the Madame X Tour date originally slated for Sunday, 26-January at the London Palladium will now be rescheduled to Sunday, 16-February becoming the final date in the 15-show run in this city. There is no change to the additional performances 27, 29 & 30 January and 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13 and 15-February.
Tickets for the 26-January performance will be honored at the 16-February event. Refunds if required will available via point of purchase. We apologize for any inconvenience.
