MADONNA WAS SCHEDULED TO PLAY UNITED CENTER IN AUGUST
News was releases today that Madonna’s upcoming Celebration tour has been postponed after the iconic singer developed a severe bacterial infection requiring hospitalization, according to her management.
“On Saturday June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several day stay in the ICU,” longtime manager Guy Oseary wrote on Instagram. “Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected. At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour.”

Madonna was scheduled to play the United Center in Chicago August 9 and 10.
