Just days after the launch of Madonna’s highly-anticipated Rebel Heart Tour, Live Nation announced today that Madonna is adding more tour dates in Asia and North America. The new dates added to the 64-city world tour include first ever concerts by the Material Girl in Taipei, Hong Kong; Macau; Bangkok; Louisville, KY; San Antonio, Tulsa, OK, TX; Nashville, TN; as well as her first concerts in Tokyo in a decade and additional dates in Mexico City; and Houston, TX. A full list of dates can be found below.
The Rebel Heart Tour launched to two SOLD OUT nights and rave reviews in Montreal, Quebec on September 9th and 10th and will continue throughout North America and UK/Europe through the rest of 2015 and into 2016. The Montreal Gazette proclaimed “in a spare-no-expense theatrical spectacle that artfully flowed from showstopper to showstopper, Madonna proved once again that she doesn’t just crave the spotlight — she owns it;” and Associated Press raved "Pole dancers dressed like nuns, Mike Tyson and nonstop theatrics. Welcome to the church of Madonna,”
The “Rebel Heart” Tour follows the spring release of Madonna’s Rebel Heart album on Interscope Records. Rave reviews of the album include: ROLLING STONE: “Rebel Heart is a long, passionate, self-referential meditation on losing love and finding purpose in chilling times.” LA TIMES: “Rebel Heart like its creator pushes through the pain and more often than not lands solidly and with great grace on its feet.” NOISY: “Madonna continues to keep us on our toes, like no other performer in the history of modern music.. NY DAILY NEWS ‘Rebel Heart’s best moments boast some of the most finely structured pop melodies of Madonna’s 32-year career.”
Along with extraordinary critical acclaim as an artist, songwriter and producer who has sold a record breaking 300 million records, Madonna’s reputation as one of the most successful, provocative and enduring live performers of all time speaks for itself. The 2008/2009 Sticky & Sweet tour is the highest grossing tour of all time for a solo artist and the 2012 MDNA tour was the most successful tour of that year.
Tickets for the Rebel Heart concerts in North America will go on sale on Monday, September 21.
