Madonna has delayed her highly-anticipated new world tour by two days, citing production issues for the setback.
The Queen of Pop has been in training for months preparing routines forher ninth global trek, which is named after her latest number one album,MDNA.
She said, I have to say that in more than 25 years of performing I have never worked so hard or been so scrupulous
The star planned to kick off the jaunt in Tel Aviv, Israel on 29 May (12), but it has now been pushed back until the 31 May (12).
A statement on the star's official website reads, "Madonna's MDNA Tour is now planned for Thursday, May 31st at Ramat Gan Stadium in Tel Aviv, two days later than previously scheduled due to production delays. "The change in the opening date was announced today by promoters Live Nation and Shuki Weiss.
All tickets dated May 29th will be honoured at therescheduled May 31st event". The delay comes after the Material Girl admitted she was "freaking out"over her new show to ensure it's her most sensational yet. She said, "I have to say that in more than 25 years of performing I have never worked so hard or been so scrupulous.
Or freaked out more than I have at the minute.
"There's been lots of cardio and I'm doing a combination of Pilates anddance cardio. And there's been plenty of skipping rope work. The envelope I'm pushing for (sic) is as spectacular a show as I can. It should be afeast for the eyes and ears".
