Madonna puts her Celebration World Tour on hold after a health scare puts her in the hospital due to contracting a ‘serious bacterial infection.’
Madonna is recovering after a health scare, which will postpone her Celebration World Tour, initially set to begin next month. In a post shared to his Instagram, Guy Oseary, Madonna’s longtime manager, shared that the singer had “developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several-day stay in the ICU” on Saturday.
“Her health is improving; however, she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected,” Oseary continued. “At this time, we need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you as soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.”
The 64-year-old singer was found “unresponsive” and was rushed to a New York City hospital, where she was intubated for at least one night. Her eldest daughter, 26-year-old Lourdes Leon, was reportedly by her side throughout the ordeal. A source close to the situation shared with CNN that Madonna is out of the intensive care unit and is now recovering.
The Celebration tour was scheduled to begin on July 15 in Vancouver, Canada, followed by two shows in Seattle starting on July 18. The tour was to continue across the United States and Canada until early October when Madonna would head off to Europe. The singer also added more US dates in December and January, followed by four show dates in Mexico City.
Just days before her hospitalization, Madonna took to social media to celebrate her 10-year-old twin daughters’ completion of elementary school. In May, the Grammy-winning singer spent Mother’s Day in New York City with all six of her children: Lourdes, twins Stelle and Estere, sons Rocco and David, and daughter Mercy.
