Frankfurt - Pop star Madonna cancelled two concerts in Cologne that were to launch her first world tour in eight years, and will instead open the tour in Barcelona on June 9, organisers announced on Friday.

"Due to technical problems the show will not be able to start before Barcelona," Madonna's manager Caresse Henry said in a statement issued by the Marek Lieberberg concert agency. The problems were not detailed.

German fans will be able to catch Madonna during four shows in Berlin on June 19, 20, 22, 23. - Sapa-AP
