Madonna’s celebrations for her 40 years as a global artist, which were to take her on tour halfway around the world, are currently on hold. The 64-year-old singer has been admitted to a New York hospital. This has been confirmed by her agent, Guy Oseary, in a statement through his Instagram profile. He did so after the media outlet Page Six announced Madonna’s admission and even stated that she had come to be intubated, something that Oseary has not confirmed.

In his brief statement, Oseary explains: “On Saturday June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which lead to a several day stay in the ICU,” without specifying whether she had indeed been intubated or if she had already left the ICU. “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. 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.”

According to Page Six, the singer had her ventilation tube removed Tuesday night, and is “conscious and recovering.” According to People, in addition, she has already left the ICU. Her eldest daughter, Lourdes Leon, 26, would have already come to visit her.

Last January, Madonna announced that she would celebrate her four decades in the world of music with a great world tour, which she called The Celebration Tour. It started on July 15 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver and from there it would go to Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami and Los Angeles. Then it would go through 11 cities in Europe in Autumn, including Barcelona, to end in Amsterdam (Netherlands) on Friday, December 1, at the Ziggo Dome. “I’m excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes of giving my fans the show they’ve been waiting for,” the queen of pop said as she launched her tour a few months ago.
