Madonna, Live Nation and Maverick have announced a series of intimate theater performances in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, giving fans an opportunity to see Madonna up close and personal.
Madonna’s theater tour kicks off in New York on Sept. 12. She plays Chicago in October and then comes to The Wiltern in LA on Nov. 12, 13, 14, 16 and 17. More dates are expected. Her new album Madame X will be available on June 14.
Following the announcement on Monday morning, by afternoon four additional dates were added to The Wiltern performances. Madonna will also play Nov. 21, 23, 24, and 25.
Madonna is the best-selling female solo touring artist of all time and has the highest-grossing concert tour ever by a female artist with her Sticky & Sweet Tour (2008-2009) at $408 million.
Influenced by living in Lisbon, Portugal over the past several years, Madame X is a collection of 15 new songs that celebrates Madonna’s love for Latin music and culture as well as other global influences.
Madonna is releasing five songs before her new studio album Madame X debuts globally on June 14. Following the release of the empowering ballad “I Rise” and “Medellín,” additional songs to be shared with fans include the pop song “Crave” featuring Swae Lee and produced by Mike Dean on May 10, the Jamaican dancehall vibes of “Future” featuring Quavo on May 17, as well as “Dark Ballet” on June 7.
“The chance for fans to see Madonna at these venues is incredibly special,” said Madonna’s promoter Arthur Fogel, President – Global Touring and Chairman – Global Music, Live Nation. “We are proud and excited to be able to deliver this ultimate opportunity for her fans.”
Tickets for these very special Madame X performances will be scaled between $60.00 – $760.00 (plus applicable service fees). Additionally, fans will have the opportunity to enter to purchase tickets at $10.00 at Madonna.com. There will be 10 tickets available per show and fans will be notified on show date if they have been selected for this unique opportunity.
