Madonna announces ‘Celebration’ tour spanning 40-year career

Madonna is throwing a party.

The Queen of Pop announced Tuesday that she will embark on her “Celebration” tour this summer in honor of the 40th anniversary of her music career.

The 35-city global trek will kick off in North America on July 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, with stops at Chicago’s United Center, New York’s Madison Square Garden, Miami’s Miami-Dade Arena, Los Angeles’ Arena and more. It will make its way to Europe on Oct. 14 before wrapping on Dec. 1.

The full list of dates and ticket information is available on Madonna’s official website.

The trek runs from July to December.

The Grammy winner, 64, is set to perform her greatest hits from her 1983 self-titled debut through her 2019 album, “Madame X.”

“I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for,” she said in a statement to Page Six.

Madonna’s revered catalog includes global smashes such as 1984’s “Like a Virgin,” 1985’s “Material Girl,” 1989’s “Like a Prayer,” 1990’s “Vogue,” 2000’s “Music” and 2005’s “Hung Up.”

The Queen of Pop is celebrating 40 years in music.

The news that the legendary entertainer is going back on the road comes a year and a half after she signed a new partnership with Warner Music Group, which said it plans to release several projects in the coming years that will “revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon.”

The releases include “expansive deluxe editions for many of her landmark albums” in addition to “unique releases for special events.”

The first such project was “Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones,” a career-spanning remix album released in August 2022.

Madonna last toured from September 2019 to March 2020 in support of “Madame X.” Her “Sticky & Sweet Tour,” which ran from August 2008 to September 2009, remains the highest-grossing tour ever by a female artist.
