In a post on her Instagram page, she noted that "artists are here to disturb the peace."
Madonna was quite furious and she added that it was five minutes past their 11 p.m. curfew and they had one more song to perform. The Palladium in London decided to censor them by pulling down their metal fire curtain, which weighed nine tons.
"Fortunately, they stopped it halfway and no one was hurt," she said, prior to thanking the whole audience for not moving and never leaving them. "Power to the people," the pop queen exclaimed.
Madonna went on to perform "I Rise" a cappella with her microphone off, and the house lights on. The crowd was with her every step of the way.
The London Palladium issued a statement today where they stated that contrary to a number of reports, the staff at The London Palladium did not pull down, or attempt to pull down the iron fire curtain.
