Although everyone wants Madonna to be healthy, people are obviously bummed out about Madonna delaying her tour, especially since she hasn't toured since the Rebel Heart Tour from 2015-2016.

Before the health scare, Madonna took to YouTube channel to announce her Celebration Tour.

Madonna - The Celebration Tour Announcement

The announcement video is a little wink to her documentary from the 90s Truth or Dare since Madonna and her celebrity friends including, Amy Schumer, Judd Apatow, Jack Black, Eric Andre, Lil Wayne, Diplo, Bob the Drag Queen, Kate Berlant, Larry Owens, and Meg Stalter are cheekily playing the game of the same name.

We are all wishing Madonna a speedy recovery and are looking forward to seeing her in person the not too distant future.
