Madonna announces 2023 world tour in Instagram clip featuring Amy Schumer

Madonna has been flooded with support from her famous supporters and fans, following the news that the singer spent several days in intensive care.

The “Express Yourself” singer, 64, developed a “serious” bacterial infection over the weekend, which led to a “several-day stay in the ICU”, her tour manager Guy Oseary announced on Wednesday (28 June).

While Madonna is expected to make a “full recovery”, she has had to “pause all commitments”, including delaying the start of her forthcoming tour.

The Queen of Pop was due to begin The Celebration Tour, a greatest hits show, in Canada on 15 July. A new start date is yet to be announced.

Rita Wilson and Michelle Visage were among the stars wishing Madonna well, with RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Visage telling Oseary to “take good care of our Queen”.

The Celebration Tour will feature music from Madonna’s catalogue across four decades, and was scheduled to arrive in the UK in October and December.

Billed as a “one-of-a-kind experience”, the tour is also set to feature special guest Bob the Drag Queen, real name Caldwell Tidicue, across all dates.


Kathy Griffin says trolling of Madonna stems from ‘ageism and misogyny’

Kathy Griffin has spoken out in defence of Madonna following speculation about her health.

After the singer postponed her forthcoming tour after being admitted to hospital, Griffin shared a video to TikTok about the Queen of Pop.

“I don’t know what’s going on with Madonna,” said the comedian. “I don’t know, but I love her and want to defend her.

“I don’t like how people are already piling on and making fun of her being obviously quite ill, or collapsed. She’ll be fine, we don’t know anything yet. But I’m going to be honest, I think a lot of it is ageism and misogyny.”

She continued: “Sorry, but as a 62-year old chick, I deal with it all the time, and she’s frickin’ Madonna!”

Referencing trolls who have criticised Madonna’s appearance in recent years, Griffin continued: “So I don’t care about her fillers, they’re going to go away if she feels like it or not.

“I care about her health, and I’m glad she can go back on this tour, and the tour is the greatest hits and she should be great.”
