There are some dates to mark in your diary for 2023 already, as Madonna has announced her Celebration tour. Kicking off in Vancouver, Canada, in July, the ‘Queen of Pop’ will play shows across North America before moving on to the European leg of the tour.
Madonna announced the news via her Instagram, with a black-and-white video featuring DJ Diplo, actor Jack Black and rapper Lil Wayne. With comedian Amy Schumer daring the 64-year-old singer to go on tour, the video post sits between two static ones, with Madonna telling her followers to “Come join the party! #madonnacelebrationtour”.
UK fans, prepare yourself for a journey to the O2 Arena to sing your heart out to classics such as ‘Like a Prayer’, ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ and ‘Material Girl’, with Saturday 14 October marking the first European tour date. It’s also the only date the singer will be performing in the UK, so, keyboards at the ready, people, when it comes to securing those tickets.
Those not based in the capital might want to look into travel arrangements, as London is the only UK city to be graced with Madonna’s presence, before she moves onto Antwerp, Belgium.
The Celebration tour marks Madonna’s 12th concert tour and is set to feature songs from every era of her career. Good news for those who like Hard Candy as much as Like A Virgin. The American singer’s last concer tour was the Madame X Tour in 2019-20, which supported her 14th studio album.
If you’re a die-hard Madonna fan and can’t wait to see the singer live on stage, you’ll want to read on for all the information on how to secure the coveted tickets.
