Madonna not touring down under

Madonna Bang Showbiz

MADONNA has asked her Down Under fans to forgive her after cancelling plans to visit with her MDNA tour, stating she needs to spend time with her family.

The Material Girl recorded her apology and released it on YouTube, saying she felt bad about disappointing her fans.

Rumours had persisted that Madonna would also include a rare New Zealand visit alongside an Australian tour after an "official" tour draft leaked, but it turned out to be fake.

Madonna said she had to give priority to her duties as a mother, as she was unable to take her children with her on tour all of the time.

"At the end of the year I feel I would be an irresponsible parent if I didn't stop my tour and spend time with them," she said.
