Madonna, 65, shared a selection of photos from her world tour rehearsals, including selfies, behind-the-scenes snaps, and more.
In one Instagram pic, she showed off her long legs while wearing fishnet stockings and a pair of low-heeled boots on stage.
There was an electric guitar and two large amplifiers behind her.
Fans, however, were distracted by the large blue brace she was wearing around her left knee.
In another photo, snapped from above, Madonna was seen lying down, resting her head on one of her hands as she iced the same knee.
She captioned the post: “Rehearsal photo dump………” and made no mention of the injury to her leg.
Her comments were full of excited fans, eager to see her take the stage again.
There were also several supporters who appeared concerned for the Hung Up singer after she was hospitalized in June.
One commenter wrote: “One thing I love about Madonna is she never let anybody or anything stop her shine.”
Another commented: “Gotta love our old girl! Knee brace and ice pack, so relatable.”
A third fan wrote: “As much as I love you I want you to know that we won’t love you any less if you need time to look after YOU, so if it means a concert gets canceled for your health then it’s ok – you have nothing to prove to anyone. I want you to stay healthy and happy!
“You will always be Madonna our legend!”
Someone else commented: “So beautiful, I’m glad to see you so beautiful, happy and strong, you look amazing my baby. I just want everything to turn out great…And the most important thing is that you are well.”
A fifth supporter chimed in: “Wishing you a safe and healthy next few weeks of rehearsal.”
Madonna announced the first date of her new Celebration world tour in August.
She revealed plans to perform at the O2 Arena in London on October 14.
The singer will then head out on the North and South American legs of the tour in 2024, performing until April of that year.
She had been rehearsing for the slew of shows for several months before an illness landed her in the hospital.
ON THE MEND
After being rushed to the hospital and landing in the intensive care unit, Madonna broke her silence.
In July, she revealed that she was back in action after being sidelined by a serious bacterial infection.
She was found unresponsive in her New York City home on June 24 and spent some time being cared for in the hospital.
About two weeks after the scary incident, she told fans: “Thank you for your positive energy, prayers and words of healing and encouragement.
“I have felt your love. I’m on the road to recovery and incredibly grateful for all the blessings in my life.
“My first thought when I woke up in the hospital was my children.
“My second thought was that I did not want to disappoint anyone who bought tickets to my tour.”
She went on: ‘I also didn’t want to let down the people who worked tirelessly with me over the last few months to create my show. I hate to disappoint anyone.
“My focus now is my health and getting stronger and I assure you, I’ll be back with you as soon as I can!”
She announced at the time that she would be rescheduling the North American leg of her tour, kicking it off in October in Europe instead.
In closing, she wrote: “I couldn’t be more grateful for your care and support. Love, M.”
