Madonna's 'MDNA' tour will start two days later than originally scheduled due to production delays, according to a statement on her website.

The tour will now open at Tel Aviv, Israel's Ramat Gan Stadium two days later than planned. Promoter Live Nation has reassured fans that all tickets for the planned May 29 show will be honored at the rescheduled May 31 event.

It seems unlikely that the delay will affect her UK dates. The singer has announced a string of UK shows as part of her 76-date world tour in support of her 12th studio album 'MDNA', which was released in March.

Earlier this month (April 11), it was revealed that the LP had suffered the biggest second-week sales slump in US chart history. Despite selling 389,000 copies and debuting at the top of the Billboard 200 in its first week, its sales subsequently plummeted by 88%. 'MDNA' hasn't had much staying power in the UK either, debuting at Number One in the Official UK Album Chart, before slipping to Number Seven the following week.

Madonna will play the following dates in the UK:

London Hyde Park (July 17)
Birmingham National Indoor Arena (19)
Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium (21)
