Madonna’s been a bad girl. Basically, her entire life. Right now, though, we’re referring specifically to the bad, bad, bad news that this bad, bad, bad girl just broke about having to cancel her Rebel Heart Tour kickoff shows, a two-night stand in Miami.
But that’s not all. Naughty Ms. Madonna Louise Ciccone is also nixing the next night’s show in Atlanta and two more concerts in Puerto Rico.
"I can promise you this show will be worth the wait,” she tries to console us in her official announcement of the delay.
Originally set for September 29 and 30, the Miami shows have been rescheduled for January 2016. And it’s the same deal for the other concerts too. Tickets for all of these dates will still be valid.
Admitting to being behind schedule in pre-production and rehearsals, the wild, unruly, and bad, bad, bad 56-year-old pop star is doing something that she almost never does... She’s apologizing.
"As my fans already know, the show has to be perfect,” she explains in her statement. "Assembling all the elements will require more time than we realized. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause my fans. I can promise you this show will be worth the wait. Can't wait to share it with all my Rebel Hearts out there."
