Popstar Madonna, who has already cut a handful of shows on her Madame X World Tour, cancelled the final North American date due to “indescribable pain.”

The North American tour was slated to wrap-up on Sunday, December 22. This was supposed to be the seventh show at the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater, however, after suffering from an “indescribable pain” during a show on Saturday night, she had to call-off the gig. Fans were furious that the singer cancelled just two hours before show time.

Madonna took to Instagram to explain the cancellation.

“As I climbed the ladder to sing ‘Batuka’ on Satuday night in Miami I was in tears from the pain of my injuries, which has been indescribably for the past few days,” the 61-year-old singer said in an Instagram post earlier this week.

She noted that she prayed to get through the show during each song, and while she survived the night, she was unable to continue for a final show over the weekend.

“This time I have to listen to my body and accept that my pain is a warning I want to say how deeply sorry I am to my fans for having to cancel my last show,” she continued, noting that she’d spend the past few days going to doctor appointments, getting ultrasounds, and enduring “poking and probing and more tears.”

In order to continue her world tour, doctors said that she must rest for as long as possible. While she doesn’t like injuries halting her performing, she said that she needs to “accept that there is no shame in being human.” The Miami show is her latest gig to be cancelled on the tour; several shows were cancelled due to injuries as well as production issues, including three gigs in Boston, a handful of dates in New York City, and a performance in Los Angeles.

Earlier this year, the Madame X Tour was extended due to high demand and is slated to stop in Lisbon, London, and Paris next year.
