According to her website, “The Celebration Tour” will “take us on Madonna’s creative journey across four decades and pay tribute to New York City, where her musical career started.”
Madonna has said that she will be embarking on “The celebrate tour” of her four-decade-long career as a recording and performing artist. The 35-city trek, which will be known as “The Celebration Tour” will start on July 15 in Vancouver, Canada, and will continue all the way through the winter, wrapping up in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on December 1.
The Celebration tour was formally announced in a trailer that was a spoof of Madonna’s 1991 tour film Truth or Dare. The tour was first foreshadowed in a promotional video for the album Finally Enough Love, which reached No. 1 on the dance chart the previous year.
Amy Schumer “dares” Madonna to go on a greatest hits tour towards the end of the video, in which she, Diplo, Jack Black, and Lil Wayne, along with other celebrities, play a game of truth or dare with Madonna. The game finishes with Schumer challenging Madonna to go on tour with her greatest hits. Do you think there would be an audience for that show? Madonna inquires. “The response is a resounding fuck yes.”
The Celebration tour is going to feature “Madonna’s creative journey across four decades and pays honour to the city of New York where her career in music started,” as stated in a press release.
Bob the Drag Queen, also known as Caldwell Tidicue, is the drag artist that will be accompanying Madonna on all of her tour dates. Ridicule is most known for winning the eighth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. In addition to this accomplishment, she has published a few songs, appeared in a performance of Angels in America at the Berkeley Repertory Theater, and co-hosts a podcast with Monét X Change called Sibling Rivalry.
Madonna is now on her 12th concert tour, which is titled The Celebration Tour. The last time she went on tour was in promotion of her album Madame X, which she did in 2019 and 2020 in more smaller locations around the country. During that period, she performed a total of 12 performances in the London Palladium, which has a capacity of 2,200 people. She has had equally extended stays in New York, Los Angeles, and other cities.
The sole date that has been revealed so far for the Celebration tour in the United Kingdom is on October 14 at the O2 Arena in London, which has a capacity of 20,000. Madonna has issued the following statement on her next concert: “I am delighted to explore as many songs as possible with the goal of giving my fans the performance they have been waiting for.”
In recent weeks, Live Nation, the company that organised the Celebration tour, has come under fire for its business practices. The United States government is currently conducting an antitrust investigation into the touring giant and parent company of Ticketmaster to determine whether or not it has abused its dominant position in the entertainment industry. When Taylor Swift criticised Ticketmaster in November for botching the pre-sale for her own greatest hits events, which were termed the Eras tour, the scrutiny on the company increased significantly.
Amy Klobuchar, the leader of the antitrust committee in the United States Senate, sent a letter to the corporation in which she expressed “great concern about the condition of competition in the ticketing sector and its adverse effect on consumers.”
Tickets for Madonna’s Celebration tour will go on sale to the general public on January 20 and can be purchased on her website.
