Madonna has apologised to Australian fans for cancelling her 2013 tour Down Under, citing her kids as the reason she can't make it.
In the video, she says, "I have two scales I have to weigh in front me of me, my job as a singer and entertainer and my job as a mother. Because my children are older I can't take them on the road with me everywhere...at the end of the year I really feel I would be an irresponsible parent if I didn't stop my tour and spend time with them."
She continued, "Please forgive me, and know when I do come to Australia I will have made the wait worth your while and I will put on the greatest show on earth and I haven't forgetten about you."
The last time Madge visited our shores was in 1993.
