Madonna will sing at Madrid and Saragossa before continuing her tour in Norway.

Barcelona – Pop diva Madonna was back in Barcelona Tuesday to resume her tour after her Marseille date was cancelled following an accident that killed two stage hands setting up for the concert.

The 50-year-old singer, who flew to Marseille Sunday to visit the family of one of the dead workers and some of those injured when a crane toppled over, is due to give two more concerts in Spain.

She will sing at Madrid on Thursday and the northeastern city of Saragossa on Saturday, before continuing her Sticky and Sweet tour in Norway.

Two men, 52-year-old Frenchman Charles Criscenzo and 23-year-old Briton Charles Prow, were killed last Thursday and eight other workers injured when part of the stage being built at Marseille's Stade Velodrome collapsed.

The accident happened when a crane toppled over as they were preparing the venue for Sunday's concert, which was immediately cancelled.

Madonna has been touring since August 2008 to promote her latest album Hard Candy.
