Madonna’s rescheduled North American “Celebration Tour” will follow on the heels of her originally announced UK and European dates, after the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer was forced to postpone a previously scheduled run because of her recent hospitalization with a bacterial infection.
Tickets for postponed dates will be honored at all dates with the exception of Los Angeles and one date in New York, because of a venue change.
However, because of scheduling conflicts, some original dates have been canceled. According to a statement from tour producer Live Nation, “Getting all shows rescheduled was the number one priority … Madonna regrets the inconvenience to fans and hopes to make it up to those markets in the future.”
“The Celebration Tour” will officially kick off with four sold out shows in London in October, followed by shows across Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands throughout the remainder of 2023. The North American leg will begin Dec. 13 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
