Madonna spent several days in ICU after being found unresponsive, was ‘putting in 12-hour days’
Here's why Madonna was hospitalised and spent days in ICU.
American singer, Madonna, was rushed to the New York City hospital on Saturday after she was found unresponsive before her upcoming tour.
64-year-old singer was intubated for one night and is now recovering. According to Madonna's manager, Guy Oseary, her health is improving but she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.
In an instagram post he elaborated that, ‘On Saturday June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which lead to a several day stay in the ICU.’
All her shows and commitments have been paused for now. According to a Page Six report, singer was ‘putting in 12-hour days,’ quoting an insider. ‘She was strenuously rehearsing and putting in the work,’ they reported.
"At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows," he added.
According to reports, she is now out of ICU, Oseary explained in his post, 'she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.”
Ironically Madonna's last instagram post is captioned, ‘the calm before the storm’, which she may have reffered to her upcoming tour.
Madonna's next tour, ‘Celebration Tour’, was scheduled to kick off from July 15 in Vancouver, Canada, followed by two dates in Seattle starting on July 18.
