Madonna has been hospitalized and is in the ICU after developing a bacterial infection, according to her manager Guy Oseary. She is expected to make a full recovery, but all of her tour dates have been put on hold.

UPDATE (6/29, 1:37 p.m. ET): Madonna has reportedly been released from the hospital and transported to her New York City home via private ambulance, CNN reports. A source says that she is now "in the clear."

UPDATE (8/15, 1:06 p.m. ET): Madonna has rescheduled the North American leg of her tour. She will make stops in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver this winter.

This past Saturday (June 24), Madonna was reportedly found unresponsive and rushed to hospital in New York. Page Six reports that she was intubated for a night before having the tube removed. She is now recovering and is alert.

Oseary wrote, "Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected." The 64-year-old had been due to hit the road next month, with the first show in Vancouver on July 15. Subsequent Canadian dates were to include Toronto (August 13–14) and Montreal (August 19–20).

According to Oseary, the tour dates will be rescheduled.
