MADONNA ANNOUNCES 'THE CELEBRATION TOUR'

January 17, 2023
Today, Madonna announced Madonna: The Celebration Tour, in an iconic viral video with a wink to her groundbreaking film Truth or Dare. The video (click here for trailer version) features notable names such as Diplo, Judd Apatow, Jack Black, Lil Wayne, Bob The Drag Queen, Kate Berlant, Larry Owens, Meg Stalter, Eric Andre and culminates with Amy Schumer daring the global superstar to go on tour and perform her four decades of mega hits. Madonna, the best-selling female solo touring artist of all time, rises to the challenge announcing The Celebration Tour which will be highlighting her unmatched catalog of music from the past 40 plus years.
Produced by Live Nation, the 35-city global tour will kick off in North America on Saturday, July 15th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC with stops in Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and more before making its way to Europe where she will hit 11 cities throughout the fall, including London, Barcelona, Paris, and Stockholm, among others. The Celebration Tour will wrap in Amsterdam, NL on Friday, December 1st at Ziggo Dome.

The Celebration Tour 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. “I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for,” states Madonna.

The Celebration Tour will 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.

Her singing voice these days is marred by her intense plastic surgery. I hope she manages to finish this tour with no hiccups.

I want to be excited, I will get a ticket however this all feels very This Is It. I hope she is OK emotionally, mentally and physically and prepared for the intense scrutiny she will face on this tour mainly due to her antics over the past few years and the theater tour (the lateness really stung a lot of people).

.

I hope the song arrangements are superior. Kevin Antunes has beyond served his time, she needs an innovator to take her hits to the next level while staying true to the basics.

This is the most animated I've seen her in a while however the video seems a bit contrived.

I'm going to the Stockholm show which is pretty much a stadium. Will be interested to see how she works in most of her big hits, there's so many!

I don't care much for Madonna, I'm not that much of a fan.

But, I do respect her enormously as a person, as a woman and artist, who constantly had to fight against whatever during her 40 year carreer.

I think a greatest hits tour is long overdue.For the most part,all of her previous tours focused on whatever 'new' album she has out at the time.It's refreshing to go to a concert and actually hear all the hits that you know and love.I just hope that she doesn't "re-invent" these songs too drastically.Keep it simple.Hopefully,she adds some hits that haven't been played alot...like "Angel" and "Causing A Commotion".

How are you feeling today?
Madonna: “I am very excited by the challenges that are emerging in my future. I'm about to create a new show. And I have been working on the script for a film about my life for several years. It's a good time because I gather ideas, get inspired, hang out with creative people, watch tons of movies, listen to music and I've become a social anthropologist. I look for inspiration wherever I go and wherever I can find it».

What makes you happy?
Madonna: “Spending time with my kids. And to see them happy, to witness their growth, to watch them evolve and then to find the things they love. Most of my happiness comes from my children. And much more from the inspiration that some artists give me».


Let's go back 40 years. What advice would you give to that girl from New York, to the young Madonna?
Madonna: “That girl was hungry and penniless. I'd tell her to go find some food.'

What would you do if you were 20 today?
Madonna: “I don't know, maybe I'd do exactly the same things I did then. I would throw myself into the world again. With the same curiosity, with the same hunger for knowledge, with the same greed to have as many experiences as possible. I wanted and want to leave my mark on the world. So, yes, I would continue to disturb the peace, to be adventurous, to express myself, to be rebellious. In the end, I would do everything the same way. With one exception: I would indulge in more food. And maybe an extra pair of shoes.'

What is your relationship with religion today?

Madonna: I think it’s important to have ritualistic behavior and a spiritual life. Religion without understanding, knowledge, curiosity, and inclusivity – I don’t consider that to be religion. I’m not subscribing to religious groups that are exclusive of others or extremist in any shape. However, I do respect all religions and encourage people to look into whatever religious belief system they follow. To understand and study their holy books and to understand their ritualistic systems, because otherwise without understanding it’s just dogma and rules, and an empty exercise. My relationship with religion is that I remain very involved in my own spiritual practice and I think it’s imperative for everyone to have a spiritual practice – but I am not defining that for other people. I do think it’s vital to pray and to have connection with some spiritual lifestyle / life force or whatever you want to call it. There is just no way you can survive and get through life without connecting to the idea that there is a higher power and energy force - many energy forces. That there is a metaphysical, mystical world that we are all a part of and need to stay connected to».

What are you afraid of?

Madonna: The idea of living in a society where you can’t be free to express your individuality or your thoughts frightens me. It seems to me that people are increasingly afraid of expressing their opinions, of being authentic. It's like living in one of those futuristic dystopian movies. The problem is that these scenarios have started to come true and that’s scary».

Hey, I'm curious how much you paid for the ticket & the fees. It's none of my business, but I'm probably poorer than you, and was wondering what they're going for.

I could search myself of course, but if you don't mind sharing, I'd appreciate it.

Madonna was having physical issues during her last tour so the question is; will she survive this tour? Or am I being too nihilistic?

So I’m having some fun,trying to come up with a perfect set list biggrin since this is a “celebration” of the hits,I think these are the songs that should definitely be on the set list…

“Holiday”
“Into The Groove”
“Crazy For You”
“Like A Virgin”
“Angel”
“Dress You Up”
“Open Your Heart”
“Live To Tell”
“Like A Prayer”
“Express Yourself”
“Vogue”
“Deeper and Deeper”
“Rain”
“Secret”
“Take A Bow”
“Frozen”
“Music”
“Hung Up”
“Borderline”
“La Isla Bonita”
“Causing A Commotion”
“Everybody”
“Ray Of Light”


that’s 23 songs in a 2-hour show. All the major hits are accounted for.Longtime fans would lose their minds if this was the actual set list biggrin

What do you guys think?
