Madonna has delayed the start of her intimate “Madame X” tour, due to issues with “highly specialized production elements,” according to a statement from promoter Live Nation. The first three concerts have been affected and the tour will now start on Tuesday, September 17 at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The shows previously scheduled for September 12 and 14 at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House have been rescheduled to October 10 and 12, respectively, with tickets being honored at the new dates; the September 15 concert is cancelled and refunds will be automatically issued to fans with tickets to this show. Refunds for either date if required will available via the original ticket purchase link accessed either via desktop or mobile.
While specifics were not provided, it seems likely the production elements involve the holograms of Madonna/ Madame X unveiled during her performance at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this year.
Madonna said in a statement: “Madame X is a perfectionist and wants to give you the most unique, magical, and musical experience. She underestimated the amount of time it would take to bring this kind of intimate theatrical experience to you and wants it to be perfect!!! Thank you so much for your understanding.”
