Fans Forgo Madonna’s New Music

Madonna’s moved tons of tickets for her upcoming U.S. tour but it seems fans aren’t showing the same enthusiasm for her new album, MDNA.

Ticket sales for Madge’s summer shows have reportedly reached 600,000 but MDNA had sold just over 428,000 copies at press time.

The reason?

Every concert ticket sold online for the tour includes a download link or a mail-in coupon redeemable for a free album, but fans apparently haven’t been cashing in on the free new music.

“They come to a Madonna show to hear her do the old hits like ‘Material Girl’ or ‘Like A Virgin’,” a source told Forbes.
That being said, the mag offered up some advice for the Material Mom.

“Madonna should think about this when picking songs for her tour: on Amazon, 10 of her top 20 downloaded songs are classic hits from the past.”
