Madonna to Embark on Career-Spanning 40th Anniversary Tour

The global trek will celebrate Madonna's deep catalog of hits, sources tell Billboard.

Madonna is planning a massive 40th anniversary tour later this year with her longtime concert promotion partner and producer Live Nation and music manager Guy Oseary, sources tell Billboard.

The 64-year-old pop icon will perform music from her entire catalogue, dating back to her 1983 self-titled debut album through her most recent studio album, 2019’s Madame X. The world tour will be Madonna’s first ever career retrospective, featuring a compilation of her biggest hits across four decades of music and will reportedly include a multi-night run at the O2 in London.

“It’s going to be the biggest tour she’s ever done,” one executive familiar with her plans tells Billboard. The tour will include both stadium and arena dates, the source says, and include over-the-top production that delivers both “Material Girl” kitsch and occasionally outrageous sex appeal with plenty of show-stopping moments made for social media.

The tour buzz comes just months after Madonna released her career-spanning compilation album Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones, spanning her entire dance club career, featuring remixes by top producers including 20 rare recordings officially released for the first time. In 2021, Madonna signed a deal with Warner Music Group for an “extensive, multi-year series of catalog releases that will revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon.”

Madonna last toured in 2019 and early 2020 on her Madame X tour, a theater run that was struggled through production delays and Madonna’s recurring hip and knee injuries. While the Madame X tour earned strong critical reviews in the press, its habitually late start time often angered ticket holders and prompted two class actions lawsuits from fans.

When it comes to choosing her nightly set list for this new tour, Madonna will have no shortage of songs to choose from with 57 titles charting on the Billboard Hot 100, 38 top 10 hits and 12 No. 1s, including 1990’s “Vogue,” and 2000’s “Music,” released a decade apart and each spending 24 weeks on the Hot 100. Madonna’s “Borderline” from 1984 spent 30 weeks on the Hot 100. She followed that impressive feat a decade later with the ballad “Take a Bow,” which held the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 for seven weeks.

Madonna’s 2008-2009 Sticky and Sweet Tour is the highest grossing tour by a female artist ever, according to Billboard Boxscore, netting $407 million. Her most recent Madame X theater run grossed $36.4 million with 124,655 ticket sold.

Reps for Madonna could not be reached for comment at time of publishing.

She has never been a great singer. She is a fantastic entertainer though. She could always put on quite a show.

She just physically do that anymore. This why The Rolling Stones, U2, or the Eagles can tour until one of them drops (and maybe even keep going after that). They just sing.

She puts on a show, which includes singing, and she is just too old for that anymore.

"Isn’t every Madonna tour a career retrospective?"

Madonna is one of the only artists who has never had to do most of her greatest hits or every top 10 song....That's what most older acts do.

For better or worse, and mainly, worse over the past 20 years, she has always been able to sell out and make the tour feature all her new music.

In stadium tours, about half were older songs and half were from her new album. And the older songs weren't always hits or even singles that were released. On Madame X, only 6 of the full songs were greatest hits. May have been one of the reasons she had trouble selling the theater tour--fans who like her fun pop music really hated that album. And any fans had been to her last few tours knew she would be several hours late. How many 60 year olds want to pay $400 per ticket for a concert that starts at 1030pm?

by Anonymousreply 73January 16, 2023 5:46 AM

r72 put it best - "She really has no idea who her audience is anymore"

Madonna has always found the best people working in music and absorbed them. But her desire to stay current leaves her totally adrift with her fanbase because there isn't much overlap with traditional American pop and the people she collaborates with. On Madame X, she had tracks with Maluma, Swae Lee, Quavvo and Anitta.

I gotta say her live shows are pretty spectacular. I saw her in 1990, 1994 and 2012. If she would just get out her own way, check her ego at the door and have some respect for the audience it would go a long way. But when in Chicago in 2012 you start your show at 11:30 on a Thursday ( I was 2 seconds from leaving when the lights went down)

Kylie Minogue on the other hand puts on an amazing show and actually respects her audience. She knows how to do it.

The big problem she will face with this tour is that she wants to be out there dancing. On Madame X she had problems (was it knee or hip or both?). And she filmed video of her in pain back stage, pushing herself to climb a ladder and then do dance moves like she was fine. and nobody would have given a shit if she just walked out or was wheeled out on stage and performed while her 15 dancers danced around behind her. But thats not what she wants to do. She wants to dance through a 2.5 hr show. So she is likely to overextend herself and then start cancelling tour dates.

R87 I completely agree. Something happened after that fall at the O2.

Madonna was always about sex and flaunting her body, and after a certain age you just can't do that anymore because it's disgusting and makes people want to throw up. Nobody wants to see granny's titties and pussy and hear her sing about how much she loves to fuck. There's such a shelf life on being sexy and provocative, and Madonna can't do it anymore.

Stevie Nicks and Cher, who are a decade older than Madonna, can still get on a stage and not embarrass themselves because they never used sex as their main selling point.

You know what, I'll probably snag a couple of tickets to one of the dates for old time's sake. Will go in with low expectations of what she's capable of at this stage and (hopefully) be pleasantly surprised. Honestly, if it's going to be wall-to-wall Madonna hits/classics, I think the energy that kind of setlist will foster will help mitigate the bad knees and hips, the dreadful plastic surgery and the general lack of self-awareness. She needs to fire whomever is doing her styling now (no more corsets that make her look like an overstuffed ragdoll, no more military boots. Get clothes and costumes that you can feel and look confident in, woman. And, no more improvising. You need a taskmaster of a director and choreographer because winging it is not your strength at this stage. Someone who knows how to frame you and make you channel the energy of the on stage dancers (without having to exert yourself too much.) Bring back Nikki and Donna for a couple of numbers and we're off to the races.

Lil Wayne is smoking reefer looking gross, Jack Black is being funny as is Amy Schumer who is basically boss bitch in the video. Diplo plays it cool. And Bob the Drag Queen will be the opening act on her tour simulates oral sex on a glass Evian water bottle. Stay classy!

I just watched the Instagram clip where the tour gets "announced." Featuring Amy Schumer, no less. As if that is any kind of good omen.

I cannot get over how bad she looks in that clip. Her strategy seems to be to make herself seem ugly "on purpose" to distract from the fact that her face has truly become disturbing and warped by bad surgery. She resembles a toothless old gypsy crossed with Gollum from Lord Of The Rings.

Definitely slurring her words, too. If you look back at pictures of her from 2015 or 2016, she still looks okay. Aging, and there was definitely surgery happening, but she resembles herself still. What happened in the last 5 years?! I agree now that the steep decline in behavior and appearance started after hitting her head. And, like others have suggested, there is alcohol and opioid abuse.

I am guessing the inevitable home video release of this tour will have enormous amounts of filtering applied.

Regrets. I've had a few, and one of them was not making sure I bought a ticket to see Madonna in her young prime, and, to me anyway, that was the Madonna I saw in "Truth or Dare".

I've written this before, but, I'll do it again.

Back in the early 90s, I had a job at one of the newest, glitziest tribal casinos to open in the mid-west.

The newly hired Director of Entertainment, who came from Las Vegas, and I were talking one day.

I asked him who he would recommend I see performing on tour.

"Madonna", he said.

I must've looked surprised at his response because he was much older than what would have been her audience.

He caught that right away, laughed, and said, "I've attended a performance of her current tour. It's not my kind of music, but, I guarantee you will leave her show thoroughly entertained. She works her ass off for her audience and she's widely respected in the industry for her work ethic."

I looked into getting tickets for her LA show. Absurdly expensive resale tickets only. She sold out the Hollywood bowl which is 18k seats. Not hard to do considering Cyndi Lauper and Weird Al can fill the place up as well.

In other cities she is playing modest smaller places with 5k seats and those seats are also wildly expensive.

Madonna sold $70-100+ million in tickets last week. No number released, just number of tickets sold.

Madonna's Rebel Heart tour (last arena tour) had a worldwide average of $116 per sale. Elton John saw his average ticket price rise from $130 to $180 from 2018 to 2023. And large amounts of Madonna tickets are now being sold at over $1000--not just a few premium seats--entire giant sections on floor and in 100 level. Fans are buying them.

Hard to call shows "sold out" because we don't know the process of releasing tickets for sale--They release in batches sometimes and change pricing based on demand. Some U.S. shows with tickets on the market are not occurring for 10 months. They also are not sending people digital tickets until 2 days before the concert, which is a new method of attacking the scalping market. It means fans are the ones buying tickets.

There may also be a lot more tour dates to be added. Never knew how this worked but looks like they guarantee 1-4 nights in some cities and have option to extend another night or two if ticket sales warrant additional shows. So there could be many more shows added.

by Anonymousreply 224January 23, 2023 12:39 AM

Interesting info about the ticket sales thanks R224. Fairly normal to sell concert tickets so far ahead now. The $1000 tickets doesn't sound good though. But if they're already planning more dates then it sounds like they expect everything to be sold out based on sales so far.

Stop lying R251. According to the link [bold]you[/bold] posted - the film isn't scrapped. It will be put on hold while she concentrates on the tour... That seems fair enough.

Also from the link you posted:

"Speculation over the fate of the movie began instantly after Madonna announced a career-spanning world tour last week — [bold]one that sold out shows in New York, London, Paris and other cities in minutes[/bold]".

Which is very surprising because everybody in this thread said no-one would want to go to the concerts and they would be cancelled due to lack of interest because she's too old.

r251 - that's good news. A Madonna biopic COULD be good if it has a talented screenwriter and director behind it. Were Milos Forman still around, I bet he would have made a really interesting film. I loved his biopics because they weren't traditional this happened, then this happened, then this happened slogs. The People Vs. Larry Flynt and Man on the Moon were great. How about a reunion with David Fincher, her greatest music video director?

My Gen Z relatives and co-workers know who Madonna is, but don't listen to her music and don't care about her at all. It's amazing how fleeting fame can be. You can be the biggest star in the world and a couple generations later people are just not interested. Of course the current generation has no interest in Madonna, she's ancient history to them.

I guess the equivalent would've been if me and my Gen X peers were going crazy over Peggy Lee back in the 80s and 90s. It would've been pretty ridiculous.

Of course her movie project was cancelled. She could have self financed it without blinking or kicked in financing but she wants the $$ from a studio. If you've ever worked with talent like this, they "work hard" when they feel like it but it's sporadic. You can get away with recording like this. Or maybe shooting a music video. You can't on a feature. and the more involved they get, the worse things tend to go especially when it involves the script. And she was insisting on directing. Was it William Orbit who stopped working with her because she'd leave him sitting around a studio for days or weeks until she felt like showing up? Guarantee she rescheduled her Universal studios meetings 4 times, left execs waiting for hours, etc. Superstars will do that. But here she wanted something from them and didn't get it. Still dont get why she didn't self finance. Any studio would have guaranteed distribution. She could have done it secretly as well. If she had failed, what would it cost her--a single painting? She's sitting on a half billion dollar art collection.

Ticket sales are great. Dont let anyone tell you differently. There is some serious anti-scalping built in to online ticket sales for this tour. One day scalpers will figure a way around it. For now, they aren't going to buy a ticket, sit on that investment for 7-9 months and then hope to sell it at 40% or more above face value , which is already super inflated.

The extra tour dates were always built in as part of initial bookings, but it helped drive ticket sales for a few days to create fake scarcity.

I've never seen Madonna and this is obviously the last and best time to see her...but I don't see myself coughing up hundreds to get nose-bleed seats, and frankly, her face, fake ass and general attitude have turned me off completely these last few years. I love so much of her classic music, and I know she can put on a good show, but she seems unwilling to change with age, and I feel like this will be cringe-worthy at best.

And yet - maybe I should go anyway? Bucket list type thing? I dunno.

by Anonymousreply 308February 12, 2023 9:14 AM

R308, if you have the slightest curiosity and can afford it, I think you should go. It could well be her last major tour, and it seems likely to be the kind of event people talk about for a long time...for good or ill. Being in nosebleed seats might actually be better on this occasion. You won't have a close-up view of her cosmetic misadventures.

by Anonymousreply 309February 12, 2023 9:20 AM

Don't bother R308. Saw her on the Drowned World tour. While it might have been entertaining in places, ultimately it akin to a McDonald's meal, an instant fix and quickly forgotten.

All those bleating on about her Confessions Tours etc, the only difference in any of these is her change of costumes. Everything else remains the same; forced, unspontaneous, pseudo-defiant, basic.

After an underwhelming performance from Rhianna, I decided to watch Madonna's from 2012. This was the best halftime performance in my opinion and am not a stan.. She danced her ass off for 12 minutes straight in her early 50s. I watched Gaga's as well. It was good, but she was getting winded with her dancing (she was probably doing more live singing). Madonna's stamina was remarkable for her age back then.. A reminder that even 10 years ago Madonna still looked good and was a fantastic performer. She went over to the dark side after MDMA. That was the transitional album to her illuminati-esque meets S&M phase she has been at since Rebel Heart.

Her fascination with Candy Shop is quite bizarre as no other non-single album track from her back catalog has gotten this type of treatment. Honestly, I wish more pop stars would play some non-singles from their back catalogues, but that's not why the average concert-goer is there, I know.

All that said, Candy Shop kinda goes off live. It was actually a lot of fun on the Rebel Heart tour in that flapper section. She even had a great costume for that number (which she often doesn't)
