    She confirmed (or at least implied) she would play Vogue on the Graham Norton show. As much as I enjoyed Future at Eurovision, I really hope she plays to the crowd this time, and just gives them some dance hits, straight up. Otherwise I fear this will end up being another PR disaster, if she performs mostly songs from Madame X.

    Oh dear, oh dear... well this feels very frustrating and now I feel ripped off. Live Nation really overstretched this one. Why did they make the tickets so damn expensive and then keep adding more and more dates? I’m sure they will sell out nearer the time but it will be at a fraction of the cost, while long serving fans have had to pay over the odds without even knowing what they were getting! Err... Ultimately this will reflect badly on Madonna, when this is all Live Nation’s fault. The silver lining is I’ll probably ended up going to 15 shows in London for the price of the first VIP ticket, I bought for 1 date! I really hope they don’t stream the first show. It’ll just open her up to all the usual criticism - she can’t sing, she can’t dance, blah, blah, blah. That won’t help sell the tour; just release God Control video, and give it a high-profile and controversial performance quickly!
  3. Too right! The rest of the haters should hurry up and get in line to apologise. They'll miss her one day when she's gone...

    Crave for the 5th in London too.

    Has anyone got email confirmation from ticketmaster, or just the final receipt page that you can print?

    I was thinking the same thing, but they seemed to have shifted. The Material Girl indeed! I bet Live Nation announce more dates too.

    Done! I just went straight to the VIP Crave tickets. Fifth row - £1,693 for 2 tickets. Right; now I've gotta hit the curb, to pay for these babies!

    Eek! I've just got my London verification code email! Interestingly it says: If you are not successful in buying tickets for these London dates, please ensure you keep your unique code in the event that additional Madonna Madame X Tour Dates are announced. There is a gap between London and Paris, so assuming if she doesn't do 3 back-to-back shows, and doesn't work Friday, then they may add 3 further London dates on the 12th, 15th and 16th. This is pure speculation of course. The general public sale starts Saturday 9am, so if anyone doesn't get the email/code, then I'd suggest holding tight for Saturday and potentially more dates may follow.

    That would be awesome! I'd love her to play some really random songs like Physical Attraction, Angel, Love Makes The World Go Round, I Want You, Bad Girl, Skin, How High, What It Feels Like For a Girl... There are so many possibilities!

    Wow! Well there you go. It's interesting because the size of the venues on Sticky & Sweet, MDNA and Rebel Heart kind of dictated that she play to the masses, so the set lists included Vogue, Like a Virgin, Like a Prayer, Music, Holiday, La Isla Bonita, (oh and let's not forgot Candy Shop!) - all songs that long-term fans are probably a bit bored of hearing by now. But this theatre tour will allow her to prioritise Madame X songs first and foremost, and hopefully much deeper catalogue and album tracks that we haven't heard for ages, without the average Joe-public complaining she didn't play the only 5 songs from the 80s they know. Assuming we can all get tickets, this could be a very clever way of 'syphoning out the wheat from the chaff', so her most ardent fans get an up close and personal experience and a far more creative show, all whilst still making a tonne of money. And where Madonna leads, others will sure to follow.

    I'm very interested in the economics of this 'little' theatre tour. At the the moments she's scheduled to play 67 dates (47 in the US, 20 in Europe), but looking at the gaps in the itinerary, she could play another 17 in the US and possibly another 10 in Europe, which would bring the total to 94. That's assuming she doesn't extend the tour, but it would also make it her longest tour, surpassing MDNA's 88 dates. More likely it'll end up being somewhere between 80-90 shows, similar to Rebel Heart (82 dates) and Sticky & Sweet (85 dates). Obviously the overall attendance figures for this tour will be much lower as she's playing theatres, averaging 3,000 tickets per show, but if she played 85 dates that would be 255,000 in total attendance. However, the average ticket price will be much higher this time, so if she played 85 shows, averaging 3,000 tickets per show, at an average ticket price of $300, the tour would gross $76,500,000. But if it's an average ticket price of $400 it would gross $102,000,000! Given that demand will far outstrip supply, I wouldn't be surprised if average ticket price ends up being far higher on the secondary market, meaning this supposedly scaled-back, intimate little theatre tour could end up being another huge money-spinner for her and Live Nation.

    More dates have been added to New York, LA, Chicago, and Los Angeles, and the dates for Boston, Philadelphia, Las Vegas and Miami have been announced! There are now: 17 dates in New York, 6 in Chicago, 3 in Las Vegas, 11 in Los Angeles, 2 in Boston, 3 in Philadelphia, 5 in Miami. Looking at the gaps it's possible they could add more to Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Boston and Miami, but probably not for Philadelphia.

    I think it's a some point on Thursday, but can any of the Legacy members confirm what time they received their email/text for the pre-sale today?

    Here's hoping! I haven't had this much anxiety buying tickets since the Drowned World back 2001. I wish I'd been old enough to have seen the Girlie Show at Wembley Stadium. That would've been cool!

    That's so amazing! You must be so happy. I'm so jealous!
