Madonna announces global greatest hits tour

The 35-city outing in North America and Europe will see the pop icon perform music from her entire 40-year career

By Lisa Henderson on 17 Jan 2023


Madonna has announced a global tour to celebrate the 40th anniversary of her breakout single Holiday.

The pop icon will perform music from her entire career, from 1983’s self-titled debut album to 2019’s Madame X.

The tour, titled Madonna: The Celebration Tour, will see her return to arenas and stadiums after the theatre-based Madame X shows in 2019 and 2020.

Produced by Live Nation, the 35-city global tour will kick off in North America on Saturday 15 July at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC with stops in Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles and more.

The outing will then continue in Europe, where Madonna will hit 11 cities throughout the autumn, including London, Barcelona, Paris, and Stockholm, among others. The Celebration Tour will wrap in Amsterdam, NL on Friday, 1 December at Ziggo Dome.

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 tour will also offer a “one-of-a-kind experience” with special guest Bob the Drag Queen a.k.a. Caldwell Tidicue across all dates on the global tour.

Madonna’s 2008-2009 Sticky and Sweet Tour is the highest-grossing tour by a female artist ever, raking in $411 million (£335 million).
