Word's in from Live Nation: Madonna is officially canceling tonight's show at the American Airlines Center due to "severe laryngitis." The release goes on to say that Madonna must be on "complete vocal rest" for the next 36 hours. The stops in Dallas are part of an enormous, seven-month tour that began in Europe and ending in South America.
As of right now, Sunday's (October 21st) show at the AAC is scheduled to go on. We'll be along for updates if there's developments on that one. Tonight's tickets will be refunded (online tickets should be refunded directly), says the release.
