This year marks the 40th anniversary of when 64-year-old Madonna first gyrated her way into our hearts, and yes, you SHOULD feel as old as I do right now. Because whenever I think of Madonna‘s ‘Like A Virgin’ video, I say to myself, “That just came out yesterday, right?” Sure, if 14,610 days somehow equate to the actual yesterday of twenty-four hours ago. But none of that matters because the good news is Madge wants to pay homage to her longstanding career by packing up her whips, fishnets, and face fillers to hit the road for a brand new international tour titled The Celebration Tour. And with the number of millions she’s about to make, there will definitely be a whole lot to celebrate once it’s over.
Last year rumors began that Madge would be bringing her Fix A Flat ass out to drop it midway for a few tour dates to commemorate her illustrious career. Billboard reports, just like a prayer, Madge is going to take us EVERYWHERE when the tour starts in July.
Madonna announced the dates for her global tour honoring four decades of hits on Tuesday morning (Jan. 17). The Celebration Tour was announced via a raunchy five-minute video paying homage to her iconic 1991 documentary, Truth or Dare, featuring an NC-17 dinner party featuring Diplo, Judd Apatow, Jack Black, Lil Wayne, Bob the Drag Queen, Kate Berlant, Larry Owens, Meg Stalter, Eric Andre and Amy Schumer.
The 35-city Live Nation-produced tour will kick off in North America on July 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC and hit Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas and San Francisco before wrapping up in Las Vegas on Oct. 7. The outing will then move on to Europe, starting with a date in London at the O2 Arena on Oct. 14 and winding down in Amsterdam on Dec. 1 at the Ziggo Dome.
Here’s the announcement video.
I’m sorry, but how intoxicated were these hoes before they decided to do this? And in anticipation of her return to the stage, Madge seems to be very excited about this reunion romp across the globe.
“I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for,” the singer said in a statement about the outing that will span her four decades in music while paying respect to New York City, where her musical journey began. Bob the Drag Queen will be the special guest on all the dates.
Ticket sales begin on Friday. And hopefully, she learned her lesson from last time and won’t go on a separate tour called “I’m Cancelling ALL This Shit” due to pain. She better pack some flats, a cane, and a nice comfy chair if she plans on making it through the entire tour this time.
