Madonna Postpones The Start Of Her Celebration Tour After Spending Several Days In The Hospitals Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Due To Serious Bacterial Infection. 

According to an Instagram post from her long-time manager Guy Oseary, Madonna has Postponed her tour celebration due to a serious bacterial infection.


Madonna's tour was supposed to launch in Vancouver on July 15, but  Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection on Saturday, June 24,  which led to her being admitted for several days in the ICU,” her manager Oseary wrote; “At this time we will need to pause all engagements, which includes the tour.” 


In an interview with Guy Oseary, he said; Madonna's health is improving. However, she still needs to be under medical care.


The 64-year-old global popstar was expected to launch her 84-date tour on the 15th of July, which is just a month away, but her health condition is an unexpected disaster resulting in a sudden change of plans.


Madonna, popularly referred to as the queen of pop, aimed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of her breakout single, Holiday, by embarking on her-ever greatest hits tour.


Labeled as the Celebration Tour, this would also mark the singer's return to arenas and stadiums after her experimental, theater-based Madame X shows in 2019 - 2020.


The pop star wrote on Instagram after canceling a 2020 performance in Lisbon; "Sorry I had to cancel tonight but I must listen to my body and rest!"


Madonna's tour setlist was scheduled to start in Vancouver, Canada, on 15 July and end on 30 January in Mexico City.


However, the singer-songwriter's manager said the global pop star's infection was "serious," and the tour would be on hold for now, at least until she gets better. She was due to begin the UK and Europe portion of her tour on 14 October, scheduled to begin and end at London's O2 Arena.




Announcing the tour back in January, she told fans: "I am very excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for."


Madonna's greatest hits span several decades from Into The Groove in 1985, Like A Prayer in 1989, Vogue 1990, and Hung Up in 2005, just to name a few.


Madonna, who is deeply private about her health matters, was likely in the final stages of a rehearsal in preparation for the tour.


She was awarded a Guinness World Record In 2009 for the highest-grossing music tour by a female artist after completing her Sticky & Sweet Tour.


American magazine Forbes lists her as the 45th richest self-made woman in the US with an estimated net worth of $580m (£460m) and says she has also earned an estimated $1.2bn from tours.


According to the Evening  Standard, the singer was found unconscious in New York on Saturday before being rushed to the hospital, where she spent several days in ICU, and families thought they might lose her. The reality of the situation is that no one knew which way the situation was going to turn, and her family was preparing for the worst. 

Madonna has six children. She posted to her Instagram followers last week to congratulate her twin 10-year-old daughters for completing elementary school.
