Madonna Fights Back: Inside Rolling Stone's New Issue
Tickets for all dates will go on sale on Monday, March 9th, with more dates in Asia and Australia expected to be announced in the near future. As promoter Live Nation noted in a press release, each ticket purchased online will include a digital download of Rebel Heart's Super Deluxe version, which includes four previously unreleased studio tracks. The singer has posted detailed ticket info on her website.
In her recent Rolling Stone cover story, the singer discussed just how involved she remains with every aspect of her music and show production. "I've always been that way, and then it's just developed over the years, as I've done more things," explains the "Living for Love" singer. "I really want to see everything. If it's around me and it's part of my show, I need to be a part of all of it. From the creation of the music, to the surface of the floor, to everyone's hairstyle, to the details with the buttons and the bows and the snaps and the zippers. All of those things! I don't know where it started, but I think it's just gotten worse."
While promoting the upcoming release of Rebel Heart, Madonna has given the public a taste of her dramatic new stage show. At the Grammy Awards, she brought out a gospel choir as she conquered the "bulls" onstage while singing "Living for Love." While making her return to the Brit Awards for the first time in 20 years, Madge took a nasty tumble down a flight of stairs in a similarly matador-themed performance. The singer lifted herself back up to finish strong, though later admitted embarrassment. "It was a horrible nightmare because I like to be amazing," she later told talk show host Jonathan Ross.
This will be the pop icon's first tour since 2012's MDNA Tour, in support of the album of the same name. By December of that year, Madonna earned the top-grossing tour of the year, earning nearly $300 million.
