The 65-year-old pop singer was previously supposed to launch her new world tour on July 15 in Vancouver, British Columbia, with it running through October 8 in Las Vegas. She was hospitalized in June with what her manager called a “serious bacterial infection” and the tour was put on hold.
On Tuesday, Live Nation released the new dates for the tour celebrating her four decades of music, with the festivities now kicking off in October in London at the O2 Arena, the Associated Press reported.
The concert site showed that the majority of the pop star’s North American tour dates have been rescheduled for the end of the year and 2024, kicking off on December 13 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and running through April.

However, five shows that were scheduled to hit large cities have been completely canceled. Those include concert dates in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tulsa, and Nashville due to scheduling conflicts. Refunds will be issued. More information can be found here.
In July, the international pop icon posted a message to fans after her hospital stay for the “bacterial infection” after being found unresponsive on June 24.
“Love from family and friends is the best Medicine,” the “Material Girl” singer captioned her post on Instagram. “One month out of the hospital and I can reflect.”
Madonna also thanked her children for their support and all her “angels who protected” her, letting her “stay” to finish her work.
She spent several days in the intensive care unit and was forced to postpone the start of her tour. Her manager Guy Oseary explained, at the time, via Instagram: “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.”
