Madonna Announces The Celebration Tour: Four Decades Of Her Greatest Hits

The tour is kicking off this July in Vancouver, Canada with other dates for New York, Barcelona, Paris, Stockholm, and Amsterdam.

According to a report by BBC News: Announcing the new tour, the star said: “I am excited to explore as many songs as possible, in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for.” A press release said the concerts “will take us on Madonna’s artistic journey through four decades and pays respect to the city of New York where her career in music began”.

The article also reports that, “The tour will kick off in Vancouver, Canada, in July, with dates in New York, Barcelona, Paris and Stockholm before it wraps up in Amsterdam on 1 December.

Only one date has been announced for the UK so far, at London’s O2 Arena on 14 October. However, her schedule is clear for a week on either side of that date, suggesting more shows will be announced when the initial dates sell out.”

In a related story, CNN writes: She had a cheeky bit of fun with the announcement, using some of her famous friends in a video nodding to her 1991 documentary, “Truth or Dare.”

The story further reports: In the video shared Monday, Madonna is seen playing a bit of NSFW Truth or Dare in a room with Diplo, Judd Apatow, Jack Black, Lil Wayne, Bob The Drag Queen, Kate Berlant, Larry Owens, Meg Stalter, Eric Andre and Amy Schumer. Schumer dares Madonna to go on tour to sing all her hits and the pair even end up singing a bit of Madonna’s 1987 hit “La Isla Bonita” together.  “Wait, hold on, that’s a lot of songs,” Madonna says in the video. “You think people would come to that show?”

According to CNN: The world will find out as tickets go on sale Friday for the 35 city global tour which kicks off July 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC and will include stops in Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles. European cities tour stops will include London, Barcelona, Paris, and Stockholm before the tour wraps in Amsterdam next December.
