Madonna has just disappointed her fans Down Under, canceling the plan to extend her MDNA tour to Australia. The pop queen has skipped the country twice in her previous tours, Confession as well as Sticky and Sweet, that ended in 2006 and 2009 respectively, and she is not going to make it again this time.
The last time Madonna played in Australia was back in 1993. Her Australian fans eagerly waited for her first tour in the country in 20 years after her manager, Guy Oseary, said that Madonna needed to visit Australia for the next tour. "We are long overdue for a trip Down Under and apologize for that. It will happen," he said previously.
Live Nation, which promotes the MDNA concert series, confirmed the cancellation on Tuesday, July 17 but gave no reason. "Madonna's tour will end in South America in December as planned. That's all we can say," a spokesperson said.
Several stadiums in Sydney and Melbourne reportedly have been booked to accommodate her tour next year. Rumor has it, high ticket price and crowded concert market became the main factors to the cancellation.
