Madonna has postponed her world tour after being in intensive care with a serious bacterial infection, but is expected to make a full recovery.
According to her manager, the global popstar developed a serious bacterial infection that led to “several days in the ICU.”
Guy Osiri said in a statement that Madonna’s condition is improving, but she is still under medical care.
Madonna announced a 35-date world tour earlier in the year.
The 64-year-old pop icon has embarked on his first greatest hits tour to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his breakout single Holiday.
Dubbed the Celebration Tour, it will see the singer return to arenas and arenas in 2019 and 2020 after her experimental, theater-based Madame X shows.
Some of those performances were canceled due to the star’s knee and hip injuries.
Madonna’s tour was scheduled to begin on July 15 in Vancouver, Canada.
But the singer-songwriter’s manager said on Saturday, June 24, that Madonna had contracted a severe bacterial infection and had to suspend all engagements as a result.
He was set to kick off the UK and Europe leg of his tour on October 14, scheduled to begin and end in Europe at London’s O2 Arena.
Madonna’s biggest hits span the decades – including Into the Groove (1985), Like a Prayer (1989), To Walk (1990) and Hung Up (2005).
