Madonna has scrapped her plans to tour Australia as part of her MDNA Tour, according to her concert promoter, Live Nation.
Madonna's tour will end in South America in December as previously planned.
Although the pop queen never officially announced any tour dates Down Under, a number of Australian media outlets are reporting that stadiums had already been booked in Sydney and Melbourne for early next year. It was rumored that Madonna planned to announce the concerts last week, but decided to hold off until after the Olympics. Several sources are citing a combination of high ticket prices and a crowded concert market for the scrapped tour plans.
