There was no lucky star in sight for ticket holders for the Aug. 5 Madonna concert in Detroit when the show was postponed after the singer suffered a health scare early this summer. But now, the countdown can begin anew as Detroit’s own Material Girl has rescheduled the stop for Jan. 15, 2024 at Little Caesars Arena.

Promoters gave the official update on the tour yesterday, noting that purchased tickets will be honored and ticket holders who can’t make the new date have until Set. 14 to get a refund at the point of purchase.

In July, fans were saddened and worried by the news that Madonna had landed in the ICU in late June. Her longtime manager Guy Oseary posted on Instagram that Madonna had been dealing with a “serious bacterial infection” and had spent several days in the ICU. 

Since then, the singer seems to be on the rebound.

While she made the decision to postpone the North American leg of her Celebration Tour, the shows weren’t canceled altogether, and she’s been active on social media. About a month after news broke about her hospital stay, Madonna posted on Instagram, “Love from family and friends is the best Medicine. One month out of the hospital and I can reflect. As a Mother you can really get caught up In the needs Of your children and the seemingly endless giving……….. But when the chips were down my children really showed up for me. I saw a side to them I had never seen before. It made all the difference.”

Madonna was also appreciative of “the love and support from my friends.”

And just this week, Madonna created a classic social media post, captioned simply “Leo Season” (the singer is a Leo with an Aug. 16 birthday).
