Madonna Extends ‘Celebration’ Tour; Proceeds From Nashville Show To Support Trans Rights

image001 2

Madonna has extended the second leg of “The Celebration Tour,” with nine new shows, including return trips to Washington, DC; San Francisco, Las Vegas; and Phoenix, Arizona; as well as Philadelphia, Palm Springs and Sacramento, California; and Nashville, Tennessee.

“The Celebration Tour” will kick off on Saturday, July 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC with stops in Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, and more before making its way to Europe where she will perform in 11 cities throughout the fall, including Antwerp, Copenhagen, and Stockholm, among others. She will then return to the U.S. for the additional dates

Tickets for the new dates go on sale starting with Citi and fan club presales on Tuesday, March 2; general onsale starters Friday March 31 on Madonna’s website. All general onsales, with the exception of Philadelphia, begin at 10 a.m. local time. Philly’s onsale starts at noon local. Citi members can find more details here. 

VIP packages are also available through VIP Nation.

In adding Nashville (Dec. 22) to her itinerary, Madonna acknowledges the recent passage of anti-LBGTQ+ legislation and announced a portion of proceeds from the show will go to trans rights organizations. Bob The Drag Queen a.k.a. Caldwell Tidicue appears on all dates of the global tour that kicks off July 15 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

.Referencing the more than 100 anti-LGBTQ+ bills currently before state legislatures, Madonna says “The oppression of the LGBTQ+ is not only unacceptable and inhumane; it’s creating an unsafe environment; it makes America a dangerous place for our most vulnerable citizens, especially trans women of color.  

“Also, these so-called laws to protect our children are unfounded and pathetic. Anyone with half a brain knows not to fuck with a drag queen. Bob and I will see you from the stage in Nashville where we will celebrate the beauty that is the queer community.”

All new dates will take place between December 2023 and January 2024, and mark the final additional shows in North America where Madonna will perform some of her greatest hits from the 50 No. 1s “The Celebration Tour” marks.

Madonna’s last global tour, “The Madame X Tour,” ran through mostly theaters, where she performed multiple nights in 2019-20. Her last submissions to Pollstar’s Boxoffice were eight nights at the Grand Rex in Paris, France, Feb. 22–March 8, 2020, which grossed more than $5.1 million on 20,919 total tickets, an average of $246 per ticket.

Her last dates in the U.S. were six shows at the Jackie Gleason Theater at the Fillmore in Miami Beach in December 2019, grossing more than $3.7 million on 13,339 tickets, for an average price of $279.

Madonna’s last arena stop was the conclusion of an Asian and Australian leg in 2016 with two dates at Sydney’s Qudos Arena March 19-20, 2016, grossing $6.05 million on 26,370 tickets for a $229 average. Her last play at a U.S. arena was January 23 and 24, 2016, at what is now Miami-Dade Arena, grossing $2.55 million on 26,468 tickets, a $96 average.
