We’ve been “Hung Up” on Madonna since she first hit the music scene, so you can imagine our excitement when the pop-music queen announced her world tour and we saw that NYC was on the list!
The tour was announced in a viral video in which the singer was accompanied by Judd Apatow, Jack Black, Lil Wayne, Diplo, Bob the Drag Queen, Kate Berlant, Larry Owens, Meg Stalter, Eric Andre, and Amy Schumer.
The video ends with Amy Schumer daring the Madonna to go on tour and perform her four decades worth of mega hits, and spoiler alert: Madonna agrees.
“Madonna: The Celebration Tour,” marks the singer’s 12th tour and kicks off on July 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada. The 35-date tour will make stops in NY, Miami, Los Angeles, and more, before making its way to Europe and wrapping up on December 1 at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.
“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,” reads a press release.
The release also quotes Madonna saying, “I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for.”
Bob the Drag Queen, a.k.a. Caldwell Tidicue, will join Madonna on all dates of the tour.
The world tour stops in NYC’s Madison Square Garden for two nights–Wednesday, August 23 and Thursday, August 24.
