Madonna’s “Celebration” Tour, Put on Pause After Medical Scare, Has Never Stopped Selling Tickets — The Show Must Go On!


A week ago, Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, announced that the famed performer has a health emergency and that her “Celebration” tour had been put on pause.

Since then we learned that Madonna went to the hospital ICU, had to be intubated, had gotten a bacterial infection, everyone around her was scared. But by then, according to the tabs, she was aleady home and “uncontrollably vomiting.” Contradicting this scenario, her friend Rosie O’Donnel; that Madonna was home and “feeling good.”

And what about the tour? Was it paused? No, as turns out. Ticketmaster is still selling tickets for every show beginning July 19th in Seattle. The show are about 75% sold, mostly through brokers like Stub Hub. There are multiple dates in cities like New York and Los Angeles. Some are sold more than others.

But so far, there’s no indication that anything has changed. Maybe that’s a good sign. The show will go on as planned? If you have Madonna tickets, please let me know via if you’ve received word about your show.

Nothing can keep Madonna down!
