However, Guy did also share that because of Madonna’s severe illness her upcoming tour ‘Celebration’, will be postponed.

“At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you [as] soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.”

Madonna was expected to start the Celebration tour – which is her 12th tour overall but her first ever greatest hits tour, held in celebration of the 40th anniversary of her 1983 breakout single Holiday – on July 15 in Vancouver, Canada.

From there, the 64-year-old Queen of Pop would’ve gone on to perform 83 more times all over the world as a part of the Celebration tour, ending in London on December 6.

When the tour was first announced in January of this year, Madonna – the icon behind numerous hits such as Vogue, Like A Virgin, Material Girl, Like A Prayer, Crazy For You, Express Yourself, Hung Up and 4 Minutes – told fans, “I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for.”

Madonna’s last tour was the Madame X Tour, for which she performed 75 shows worldwide between September 2019 and March 2020.

However, some scheduled shows for the Madame X Tour were cancelled due to Madonna sustaining knee and hip injuries at the time.
