Madonna has been forced to cancel the final two dates of her Madame X tour due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Like A Virgin singer was scheduled to perform at the Le Grand Rex in Paris, France on Tuesday 10 March and Wednesday 11 March, but both shows are listed as cancelled on her official website.
The Metro U.K reports that the Concert promoter Live Nation said on Monday that the cancellation is due to restrictions imposed over the coronavirus outbreak.
Over the weekend, France banned gatherings of more than 1,000 people as the death toll and number of coronavirus cases continued to rise.
