Madonna has added six more dates to her UK shows next year, as part of the world tour in support of her long-awaited 14th album Madame X. The Queen of Pop has now extended her London Palladium residency to twelve dates in 2020, as part of an intimate run of European shows which also hit the Coliseum in Lisbon and Paris.
Madonna will kick off her Palladium residency on 6 January, before subsequent dates on the 27, 29 and 30 January and 1 and 2 February. Now, it’s been confirmed that she’ll also play on 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 11 February.
Tickets range from £60 to £480 and fans can register to buy them ahead of going on general sale on Friday, 24 May.
Later this year, Madonna will also perform for seven nights at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in New York from 12-22 September, four nights at the Chicago Theatre from 15-21 October and five nights at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles from 12-17 November.
Shows at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, the Boch Center Wang Theatre in Boston, The Met in Philadelphia and at the Jackie Gleason Theatre in Miami Beach are also planned, with specific dates coming soon.
The news comes after Madonna made her live return at last weekend’s Eurovision Song Concert in Tel Aviv.
The London Palladium residency is being billed as “a series of rare and intimate performances to take place exclusively in theatres, giving fans an opportunity to see Madonna in an environment like they never have before.”
For the New York, Chicago and Los Angeles shows, tickets will be allocated with a ballot system, in an attempt to give all fans an equal chance of attending. They are invited to submit a ‘request’ for a ticket in a city and price range of their choosing between now and May 10. A week later they will find out whether they were successful.
Madonna also recently shared another new Madame X track, the Jamaican dancehall influenced ‘Future’, featuring Quavo, on 17 May.
