Madonna announces 2012 world tour dates

If you thought Madonna was going to strip off those high-heeled boots and put her feet up after the Super Bowl halftime show, think again. (This is Madonna we're talking about, after all.)

Instead, the pop star is gearing up for a world tour that will launch in Tel Aviv, Israel, on May 29.

Madge is taking her tour to "arenas, stadiums and special outdoor sights" around the globe, a statement says. She'll also head back Down Under, where she hasn't held a concert in 20 years, to wrap the tour up in early 2013.

According to Billboard, the tour should have close to 90 dates, the most she's ever performed. Her last tour, 2008's "Sticky & Sweet," had 85 dates and grossed $408 million, Billboard reports.

The North American portion of her worldwide extravaganza includes 26 cities, with the first tour stop being in Philadelphia on August 28. She'll perform at New York's Yankee Stadium on September 6, and hit the West coast with an October 10 performance at the Staples Center in L.A.

The European portion will also have 26 shows, including stops in London, Paris, Milan and Berlin.

Tickets go on sale in Tel Aviv and the U.K. on February 10, with admission to North American tour dates going on sale February 13 via Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Madonna's latest album, "MDNA," which features her new single "Give Me All Your Luvin,'"arrives March 26. For the full list of dates, visit Madonna.com.

    ** Madonna is the perfect example at how some stay at the party too long. She is old and needs to retire, her generation has moved on and I am tired of her. We need to have new icons.. Adele for example.... Let us remember the 80's not keep reliving it.

    I want to be excited about this, but her ticket price is irresponsible in this economy. $350? Really??

    Tour? Then she better make sure she doesn't lip sync like she appeared to do at half time.. Sometimes, when AARP calls, you should listen Madonna, and cover those arms!

    FACT: SOME PEOPLE NEVER GROW-UP....SOME NEVER KNOW WHEN TO LEAVE AT THE RIGHT TIME...
    MADONNA IS TOO OLD FOR WHAT SHE IS DOING....I KNOW THIS IS GOING TO HURT, BUT SOMEBODY
    GOT TO TELL THE TRUTH.....SHE NEED TO GO INTO ACTING OR SOMETHING....
    WHERE ARE HER LOYAL FRIENDS, THEY SHOULD TELL HER TO JUST STOP....
    JUST LIKE SOME RAPPERS, WHEN THEY GET OLD, THEY BECOME PRODUCERS
    BECAUSE NO YOUNG PERSON IS GOING TO BUY THEIR MUSIC.....
    THERE I SAID IT.....I THINK SHE SHOULD HAVE KEPT HER HUSBAND AND
    FAMILY AND BUILD A LIFE...BUT SOME JUST THINK, THEY JUST THINK!

    • Wooooooooooo yeah baby

      Sky, seriously shut up. You only get once chance at life. And to throw away the latter half of it doing what makes you feel good is tragic. Who cares what others think, seriously if you are that weak minded get some help.

      Me personally, I find Madonna still in her prime. To look that hot at her age prancing around in a short skirt and smexxy boots, veerry nice. I'd be all over that WOOOOOOOO YEAH BABY

    After watching her Super Bowl show I'm not shelling out for tickets. If I want to see a geriatric stumbling amidst high energy music and gymnasts I'll wait for Don Rickles to do it purposely. At least I won't feel bad about laughing.

    I've always felt she put on a good show. That said, I'm to be mean and say that she has no choice but to tour in order to recoup the money lost on her horrible film projects.

    Yes, she will actually sing on Tour. Many times, she relies on her dancers to put on the show while she sings in concert. At the Superbowl, you may have noticed a few cartwheels, strings of pumping deep knee maneuvers, vigorous dance routines, and a lot of hustle. This makes it difficult to sing without sounding extrordinarily winded. Had she just stood there and sang, people would complain that the Superbowl performance was boring. Why must people seek fault. Why cant they just enjoy?

    • Say

      Because she is terrible in their opinion and there is nothing to enjoy like a dumb lemming?

      Good on her managers for announcing the tours after the super bowl. Good market timing.

    Unlike the super bowl show, will she actually be singing on the tour?

    Just looked at the dates...guess she forgot she grew up in Detroit. Oh yeah, that is right, too many people in Michigan without a job so they can't even think about saving their pennies to buy a ticket. Thanks Madge!
