The fate of Madonna's Sticky & Sweet tour just got a whole lot sweeter.

Despite rumors that the pop icon's elaborate world tour would be scrapped on account of illness—inspired by a seemingly sprained ankle—a rep for the singer’s concert promoter, Live Nation, tells E! News the show will go on.

“We haven’t canceled any shows, it’s a full go starting on [Aug.] 23,” says the rep.

Meanwhile, the singer’s longtime rep Liz Rosenberg came to E! News to set the record straight on reports that the Material Mom is thisclose to adopting another child…

“There are several totally untrue rumors currently floating around about Madonna. One is that she is canceling shows, canceling a birthday party, that she's adopting a second child from Malawi and that she hurt her ankle. None of these are true,” Rosenberg tells us.

British media are reporting that Guy Ritchie has an authentic English bash in store for Madonna this weekend at their Wiltshire estate. The celebration of Madonna’s big 5-0 reportedly will include traditional English ale and pals Gwyneth Paltrow, Stella McCartney and Trudie Styler.
