Madonna hospitalized with ‘serious bacterial infection’ forced to postpone her tour

Madonna is postponing her upcoming Celebration tour as she recuperates from a stay in a New York intensive care unit due to a “serious bacterial infection.”
The superstar’s manager Guy Oseary posted a message on Instagram that the singer is expected to make a full recovery.
“On Saturday, June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection, which led to a several-day stay in the ICU. Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected,” he wrote. “At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour.”
The Celebration tour, which was expected to touch on all segments of Madonna’s 40-plus year career, was scheduled to begin in Vancouver July 15. Oseary’s message adds a new start date and rescheduled shows will be announced soon.
Madonna announced her tour at the beginning of the year, a 35-city run that included Seattle, Phoenix, Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Washington, D.C., followed by 11 European dates in the fall. After the initial on-sale, second shows were added in several markets to accommodate demand.
Madonna, who turns 65 Aug. 16, last toured in 2019-2020 on her Madame X run, playing small venues for the first time since The Virgin Tour in 1985. While those shows leaned heavily on her 2019 “Madame X” album, the Celebration tour was billed as a career retrospective sure to be filled with the numerous hits that have made her the most successful female artist in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
