While Madonna had to postpone the North American leg of her “Celebration Tour,” the singer has announced she will be continuing the European leg as planned.

The news comes after Madonna was hospitalized due to a bacterial infection, causing her to push back her tour dates. The singer was scheduled to kick off the “Celebration Tour” at Rogers Arena in Vancouver on July 15, with shows then continuing on to include stops in Seattle, Phoenix, Denver, Detroit, Chicago, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles and more before wrapping up with two nights in Vegas on Oct. 8.

Madonna took to social media to share that she planned to continue on with the tour, writing, “I did not want to disappoint anyone who bought tickets for my tour. I also didn’t want to let down the people who worked tirelessly with me over the last few months to create my show. I hate to disappoint anyone. My focus now is my health and getting stronger and I assure you, I’ll be back with you as soon as I can! The current plan is to reschedule the North American leg of the tour and to begin in October in Europe.”

The European leg kicks off on Oct. 14 with four nights at O2 Arena in London. From there, Madonna will make stops in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Barcelona, Lisbon, Paris, Berlin and more before returning to O2 Arena on Dec. 5 and 6.

Tour promoter Live Nation released a statement saying: “Rescheduled dates will be announced as soon as possible. Fans are encouraged to hold onto their tickets as they will be valid for the new dates once announced.”
