Due to play Lisbon - the city where recent album "Madame X" was largely written - last night (January 19th), fans were informed via email at 7.45pm that the performance was cancelled. Sorry I had to cancel tonight but I must listen to my body and rest!

A knee injury was blamed for her bailing on a concert in San Francisco a year ago.

It is the eighth time Madonna has had to cancel a show on her current world tour, which sees her playing smaller, intimate theatre venues.

The 'Ray of Light' singer has also shared videos on her rehearsal dates which show her wearing knee supports.

Madonna cancelled the latest stop on her Madame X Tour on Sunday so she could rest. She recently posted snaps online showing her taking an ice bath to soothe her pain.

Madonna said she hoped the tour would resume this week, writing on Instagram: "See you on Tuesday, fingers crossed".

Cancelling shows over in the U.S. in Boston, Madonna said she was in "overwhelming pain" from multiple injuries.

Humphries said that Penn State players planned and conducted a campaign to harass and haze the underclassmen on the football team. Humphries claims he was asked to do impossible conditioning drills and slandered when he tried to transfer out of the program.

In her Instagram post, Madonna thanked her fans in Lisbon for turning up for the concert.

Madonna is due to perform at the same venue on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before heading to the London Palladium.

With stage time scheduled for 8.30pm, it gave fans only 45 minutes warning that the show had been pulled.

She also joked about her "25 injuries" and told the audience "don't pay attention to what goes on from the waist down", reported Lisbon-based music magazine Blitz.

Madonna is now busy on a world tour.

The 61-year-old superstar later told fans on Instagram that she was forced to cancel the show for medical reasons.
