At the Manchester, U.K., stop of her Rebel Heart Tour, Madonna encountered some technical difficulties. When members of her audience booed, the pop queen delivered some tough love from the stage.
But it didn’t stop there: After the show, Madonna took to Instagram, beckoning, “FACTS: its good to have them before you jump to conclusions!” A sharp opening, but the message kind of fell apart from there. She broke down troubles with timing and equipment, and claimed that she was even fined for the mishap.
In conclusion to the lengthy caption, Madonna wrote “And I thank all my Rebel Heart fans for understanding! We did our best!”
Unfortunately, “technical difficulties” just aren’t that interesting to understand. As a superstar, you fix them and move on. Madonna seemed to get this memo when she posted a followup selfie captioned “I love you sooooooo much <3.”

FACTS: its good to have them before you jump to conclusions! The Entire video for my show crashed as I arrived for sound check. The back up file was corrupt. We had no choice but to reboot and pray for a good outcome. The video lights 75 % of my show. We cant play in the dark. We were rebooted and ready by 9:30 even though we planned to go ion earlier. I had to make cuts in show before show started. Dress you Up was one of them and my 3rd guitar song. This still brought us past the 11:00 curfew! But we went on and the venue was kind enough to extend till 111:39!! It was their choice not mine to end the show!! always want to finish. So we all missed the last 3 songs! And I'm sorry about that. And i thank all my Rebel Heart fans for understanding! We did our best! And we still had to pay a fine! That's life. 😂. PS you still got to see an amazing show!! And only missed. 12 minutes!! The ❤️#rebelhearttour goes on
