Last week (July 4), Madonna shared a post on social media to celebrate America’s Independence Day. In the post, she wrote about last year’s medical issue: “A year ago today, I had just come home from the hospital after surviving a life threatening illness, I could barely stand in my backyard holding one sparkler. I made a miraculous recovery and had an amazing year. Thank you God. Life is beautiful!”

See the post below.

While exact details of Madonna’s health scare last year aren’t known, it was revealed that she faced a life-threatening health episode in June 2023 after battling a “serious bacterial infection” that led to her slipping into a coma and being admitted to the ICU.

Her relatives revealed that they were were initially “preparing for the worst” when she became unwell. She has since made a full recovery, but was forced to postpone her US shows on ‘The Celebration Tour’ last year and instead began the trek in Europe.

While performing in New York in December, Madonna revealed that she “passed out on my bathroom floor and woke up in the ICU”. She also explained that it felt like “a fucking miracle” to be able to continue with her tour following the hospitalisation, and made light of the situation by saying that she “had to almost die” in order to get all six of her children in the same room.

Following the postponed US dates earlier this year, Madonna kicked off the long-awaited ‘Celebration’ tour with a run of UK and European dates. This included multiple sold-out stops at The O2 in London – which were given a five-star review by NME, which described the opening gig as showcasing “a series of spectacular set-pieces referencing iconic highlights from Madonna’s reign”.

Addressing the health scare in London, Madonna told fans that she “didn’t think I would make it”.
