Kicking things off in Vancouver, Madonna will visit multiple cities in the Unites States and Canada, as well as the United Kingdom and Europe.

She confirmed the 35-city string of gigs in an iconic viral video with a wink to her groundbreaking film Truth or Dare.

The video featured other notable names such as Judd Apatow, Lil Wayne, Bob The Drag Queen, Kate Berlant, Larry Owens, Meg Stalter, Eric Andre and culminates with Amy daring the superstar to go on tour and perform her four decades of mega hits.

Produced by Live Nation, the tour will kick off in North America on July 15th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC with stops in Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles.

She will then make her way to Europe where she will hit 11 cities throughout the fall, including London on October 24th, continuing onto Barcelona, Paris, and Stockholm, among others.

The Celebration Tour will wrap in Amsterdam, NL on Friday, December 1st at Ziggo Dome.

The shows will take audiences on Madonna’s artistic journey through four decades and pay respect to the city of New York where her career in music began. 

Madonna said: ‘I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for.’

The Celebration Tour will offer a one-of-a-kind experience with special guest Bob the Drag Queen a.k.a. Caldwell Tidicue across all dates on the global tour. 

Tickets go on sale starting Friday, January 20th at 10am local time at madonna.com/tour.

It had previously been reported Madonna was planning her first ever Greatest Hits tour.

A source told The Sun: ‘Madonna is trying something completely new — and really giving fans, young and old, what they want. 

‘She wants to capitalise on tracks like Frozen and Material Girl popping off on TikTok, and introduce her back catalogue to an entirely new generation.

‘Previously she has always wanted to be forward-facing and focus on whatever new album she’s plugging. But now, in her mid-sixties, she is going back to basics and once again reinventing herself.’

It’s thought that the show’s will be ‘no-holds barred and suitably risqué’ as Madonna’s prior shows, with the star no stranger to raunchy displays on social media.

Madoona’s previous tour saw her perform at significantly smaller theatre venues, but for this Greatest Hits tour she is expected to take to the stage and huge stadiums.

Last year, Madonna hinted that she was ready to get back on the road and tour again, telling Variety: ‘I want to go on tour again, I’m a creature of the stage. That is my happy place.’

Madonna last took to the stage in London’s O2 Arena during her Rebel Heart tour in 2015, the same year she famously took a tumble during a performance at the BRIT Awards.

While Madonna performed at 75 theatre venues during her Madame X tour, she was forced to cancel several shows due to recurring hip and knee injuries. 

She first took to the road to tour around the UK in 1987, with her Who’s That Girl World Tour.

Her performances have been no stranger to controversy, having famously angered the Catholic Church in 1990 when she simulated masturbation on stage, leading Pop John Paul II to call for a boycott of her Blonde Ambition tour.

It was during that same tour that Madonna donned her now-iconic Jean Paul Gaultier conical bra during a sell-out show in Japan.

In 2006 she also infuriated the Church of England by staging a mock crucifixion during her Confessions tour in LA.

She decked herself out in bondage gear including a busty sheer lace top and flounced around her bed, biting down seductively on a riding crop.
