In 2012 during the concert in Porto Alegre or Buenos Aires (I don't remember exactly) rumors said that the Santiago show would be cancelled due to her illness. Apparently singing half-naked in the rain during Like a Virgin wasn't a good idea after all. Fortunately, she didn't cancel but gave us the first majorly altered show in her career :crazy:

Yes, a true professional. But it's also because she has managed to maintain a high level of success and picks the right places to do concerts in.

The #1 reason most artists cancel shows is low ticket sales, even though they will say it's some mysterious illness or technical problems to save face.

I thought she cancelled a show due to a stomach bug really early on during her Re-Invention tour? It happened during the first few shows. Could have sworn that happened.

In any case this alone shows her drive and work ethic is like no other.

Or because they need to create a test tube baby.....

That was the second show from RIT. It was not cancelled but postponed from May 25 to 26.

I remember the cancelled German shows for DWT being a huge deal - wasn't there a public burning of Madonna memorabilia over this? :lol:

Were there any reasons she didn't take the Reinvention Tour to Israel? I swear someone said she received death threats.

Oh god, I just remembered that I bought tickets for S&S in hamburg and it was supposed to be my first M concert. When I heard that she would not perform there I was at a funeral and I cried my eyes out. Everyone thought I was crying because of the funeral....didn't know that person so well...god, I feel bad about this now! ;-)
