Following a major bacterial illness on Saturday, Madonna spent several days in intensive care. She will delay a world tour that was slated to begin next month, according to a statement from her manager.
Guy Oseary stated on Instagram that the singer is still being monitored by doctors but is anticipated to fully recover. “We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows,” he said.
Oseary and other officials of Madonna were unable to be reached right away for comment on the severity of her illness or whether she was awake and attentive.
Amy Schumer, Jack Black, and Lil Wayne were among the celebrities that appeared in the film announcing her Celebration Tour, which was scheduled to start in Vancouver on July 15 and continue into the following year. Stops on the tour were planned for Seattle, New York, Washington, D.C., Mexico City, and London.
“I don’t take any of this for granted,” Madonna, 64, said a few days after announcing her tour. “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”
In the previous years, the pop artist experienced a succession of health problems, including horseback riding mishaps in 2005 and 2009. A few months after unexpectedly cancelling a concert in Lisbon, she revealed in 2020 that she would be receiving regenerative therapy for lost cartilage. She gave the reason that she needed to “listen to my body and rest.” (Washington Post)
