“I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for,” the Michigan native said in a statement to Page Six while teasing the tour.

What Other Health Scares Has Madonna Had?
Before her most recent hospitalization, Madonna previously underwent a hip replacement surgery in 2020. The procedure was done 11 months after she sustained an injury during her “Madame X” tour. Following the injury, the “Material Girl” singer was forced to cancel several shows.
Madonna discussed the surgery during her Madame X Presents: Madame Xtra Q&A special in 2021.
“Let me be really honest with you — I used to be, like, a fitness/workout maniac,” the mother of six said at the time. “You probably know that right?… During my [2019 Madame X] tour—I don’t know if you’ve noticed it, but I’m limping a lot — I was in more pain than I’ve ever been in in my life. I’m a bionic woman — I had hip replacement surgery.
Madonna continued, “So, how do I stay in shape? It’s all in your head… It’s called will, it’s called no one’s gonna stop me, and how I stay in shape is no one’s gonna stop me. And how I stay in shape is I don’t believe in limitations.”
