Madonna tour set for Yankee Stadium
Madonna won't have to scale down her ambitions after her Super Bowl halftime show.
The Material Girl announced plans this morning for a massive tour, including her first-ever stop at Yankee Stadium on Sept. 6. Tickets are $44.50-$359.50 and go on sale through Live Nation on Feb. 13 and fans will get a copy of her upcoming album “MDNA,” due out March 26, with every ticket purchased.
“The Madonna 2012 World Tour” starts May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel, and will work its way through Europe, including an enormous outdoor show at Hyde Park in London on July 17. Aside from the Yankee Stadium date, she hits arenas in North America, starting on Aug. 28, at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center.
“Madonna’s track record as a world class entertainer and touring artist speaks for itself,” Arthur Fogel, said chief executive of Live Nation Entertainment Global Touring, which is promoting the tour. “Her artistry, talent and creative productions get bigger and better with each tour and Madonna 2012 will be no exception," Fogel said in a statement. "We are thrilled to have her back on the road and know her fans feel the same.”
Citibank cardholders will get access to pre-sale tickets starting Wednesday through its Citi Private Pass program.
The tour announcement caps a huge week for Madonna, whose Super Bowl halftime show was seen by 114 million viewers, a higher rating than the rest of the game. Her single “Give Me All Your Luvin',” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., debuted on Friday and was played every hour through the weekend on hundreds of Clear Channel stations around the country.
