The queen of music Madonna will hit our shores for her tour after 23 years since her last trip.
There were rumours in March that Madge would add Australia to her Rebel Heart tour when the announcement said as well as the 35 cities in North America and Europe, additional dates would be added in Australia and Asia.
Live Nation’s global touring division chairman Arthur Fogel then came out with an accidental hint.
“She (Madonna) has never played in Southeast Asia, and she hasn’t been in Australia or New Zealand in probably 25 years,” he told Billboard.
“It’s kind of bizarre when you think about it, that a superstar like that hasn’t been to a pretty regular touring area for 25 years.”
The tour will hit a crescendo in Brisbane as it will be the last tour stop for Madge, who starts the extravaganza – her 13th world tour – in September in Montreal. Her last big tour, MDNA, grossed more than US$300 million.
According to Billboard, the Rebel Heart Tour will be Madonna’s third and final tour under the 10-year multi-rights deal with Live Nation, valued at US$120 million.
Rebel Heart (Interscope Records) is Madonna’s 13th album and debuted at number one in Australia a week after its release. It is her 11th album on the Australian ARIA Charts, tying the record for most number one albums on the chart.
Last week, she released the Bitch I’m Madonna EP featuring 10 remixes from the album.
Madonna will play Melbourne (Rod Laver Arena) March 12-13, Sydney (Allphones Arena) March 19-20 and Brisbane Entertainment Centre March 26-27. Tickets go on sale Monday, July 6.
