Madonna revealed earlier this week that she will mark her 40th year in music with a “Celebration Tour” in North America and Europe.
Madonna has just announced ‘The Celebration Tour’: 4 decades of music and her greatest hits!!
— Madonna (@Madonna) January 17, 2023
Fans were thrilled at the thought of experiencing such a significant milestone in the Queen of Pop’s career with her, but that was before the ticket pricing was revealed later this week.
Ahead of the general ticket sales on Friday (Jan. 20th), fans who attempted to secure their seats with pre-sale tickets, learned of the steep pricing for the event, with some tickets costing nearly £3000.
The situation is exacerbated for fans in the United Kingdom, who were only allocated one tour date on October 14th at London’s O2 Arena, causing pre-sale ticket prices to skyrocket by up to seven times the original cost.
On the ticket marketplace Viagogo, there are some listings for general admission tickets with an original cost of £400 going for a staggering £2950, while the Immaculate VIP package’s price on Ticketmaster is listed as £1,307.75.
Cost for basic tickets began at £47.55 at the beginning of the pre-sale on Wednesday at 9 a.m. However, as of yesterday (Jan 19th), prices of the remaining tickets ranged from £93 to £436.85 apiece as the more reasonably priced seats were quickly taken.
Madonna will begin her tour in Vancouver before stopping in various cities in the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe.
The Live Nation-produced tour will begin on July 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, before making stops in Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. Madonna will kick off her oversees tour in London on October 14th, before stopping in various European cities including Barcelona, Paris, and Stockholm, and many others. The Celebration Tour will come to an end in Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands on Friday, December 1st.
Billed to audiences on an artistic journey through her four decades in music, Madonna will pay respect to the city of New York where her career began.
She said of the upcoming tour, “I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for.”
All dates on the international tour of the Celebration Tour will include special guest Bob the Drag Queen, also known as Caldwell Tidicue, who will deliver a one-of-a-kind experience.
