Madonna postpones world tour due to ‘serious bacterial infection’

Madonna has postponed her world tour after contracting what her manager called a serious bacterial infection, forcing the legendary performer to an intensive care unit.

The global pop star became ill on June 24. A full recovery is expected, Madonna’s manager said.

“Her health is improving, however, she is still under medical care,” Guy Oseary said in a statement. “At this time, we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour.”

Oseary said new tour dates will be shared at a later date. Live Nation confirmed the tour postponement, citing Oseary’s post.

Madonna, 64, announced the 35-date worldwide tour at the beginning of the year.

She was set to perform in Vancouver on July 15, followed by multiple other stops in the U.S., before arriving in Toronto on August 13 and 14 for a two-night show at Scotiabank Arena.

Madonna was also set to perform in Montreal at the Bell Centre for two nights on August 19 and 20.

On June 2, Madonna collaborated with Canadian R&B star The Weeknd and Playboi Carti on the single “Popular” from the soundtrack of the drama series The Idol. Her last album, “Madame X,” was released in 2019.
