The singer pulled out of the first London show on her Madame X world tour because of an injury, but has now seemingly confirmed her future London dates will go ahead.

Madonna cancelled the first London show on her Madame X world tour, telling fans she is 'deeply sorry' and that she must put her health first.

However, Madonna has now tweeted that she has "finally made it" to the London Palladium, posting: "Hello London......... We Finally Made it #madamextheatre #thelondonpalladium."

The singer was set to give the first of 15 performances in the city on Monday, January 27, at the London Palladium – but announced just days ago that the show would not go ahead.

The star also had to pull out of her recent show in Lisbon, cancelling the concert just 45 minutes before it was due to start.

I am deeply sorry that I have to cancel my concert scheduled for Monday January 27th in London. Under doctors guidance I have been told to rest for a few days. As you all know, I have injuries that have plagued me since the beginning of the tour but I must always listen to my body and put my health first. The last thing I want to do is disappoint my fans or compromise the integrity of my show. So I will keep going until I cannot. As always- anyone who purchased a ticket will be refunded for tickets purchased that evening. The show on Wednesday January 29th will go as scheduled. Again I am deeply sorry to disappoint anyone and please know that it hurts me more than you can imagine to have to cancel any shows. Thank you again for your understanding. 🙏🏼.
