Madonna has announced that she is canceling the Australian leg of her MDNA tour. Her concert promoter gave no specific reason for the cancellation.
Had the pop icon gone through with the Australian dates, the tour would have extended into 2013. This would have been her first time performing in Australia in 20 years.
"Madonna's tour will end in South America in December as planned," a spokesperson said. "That's all we can say."
It is speculated that the Australian portion of the tour was canceled given a combination of high ticket prices and a crowded concert market. Several fans on Twitter have expressed their discontent over the move.
Ironically, Madonna's tour manager, Guy Oseary, made comments at the end of her last tour in 2009, saying how badly he wanted to bring her to Australia:
"Madonna really needs to go to Australia. Unfortunately it didn't work out for this tour. She appreciates her Aussie fans coming to many of the shows . . . We are long overdue for a trip Down Under and apologise for that. It will happen."
