Madonna Announces Rescheduled 'Celebration' North American Tour Dates
Emell Adolphus READ TIME: 1 MIN.
The Queen has officially announced the rescheduled dates for the North American leg of her "Celebration Tour," and we couldn't be more excited.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Madonna will now officially kick off her tour in London on Oct. 14 and touch down in the U.S. on Dec. 13 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
"Tickets for the previously scheduled shows will be honored on the new dates, though five shows – in San Francisco; Las Vegas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Phoenix; and Nashville – have been canceled," THR reports. "Refunds will be issued at the original point of purchase."
In statement, Live Nation said, "Madonna regrets the inconvenience to fans and hopes to make it up to those markets in the future."
Madonna was infamously supposed to start her tour in July but a reported severe "bacterial infection" landed her in the hospital under intensive care.
Since then, the Queen has shared messages on social media documenting her recovery and gratitude for well wishes.
"Love from family and friends is the best Medicine," she wrote on Instagram. "One month out of the hospital and I can reflect. As a Mother you can really get caught up In the needs of your children and the seemingly endless giving........... But when the chips were down my children really showed up for me. I saw a side to them I had never seen before. It made all the difference."
Welcome back, Madge, and we can't wait to see you in December.
