Pop Queen Madonna has cancelled her intimate “Madame X” tour dates in Boston on Wednesday, stating she was experiencing “overwhelming” pain and would not be able to perform at the Wang Theatre during her scheduled dates from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2.

Her tour promoter, Live Nation, confirmed the news.

No changes have been announced for the remaining dates on the tour, which picks up Dec. 7 in Philadelphia.

Earlier this month, Madonna told an audience she was suffering from a torn ligament and knee problems as she wrapped up a three-night stand at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Theatre.

But attendees at a subsequent 10-night stint at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, which just wrapped up Monday night, said she appeared to be in top form.

The tour has her taking a detour from large stadiums and ventures to performances in intimate venues, with 12 numbers in the 21-song set list being from her “Madame X” album, released in June.
