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.

SOME JUST GOT TO HAVE THE SPOTLIGHT, THE SEE ME,
I AM A STAR, WELL, YEARS AGO ITS WORKED, BUT
Wow!...what's happened to her???...she used to be so cute and now she looks like Willem Defoe!
** 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??
Madonna needs to retire already.... She can't even dance it appears she is afraid to throw out her hip!!! GIVE IT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it's amazing how old she looks in the picture compared to the glossied up latest video of her prancing around like an aging cheerleader that simply wont let go of the game.................
oooooooo you've got to let your body vogue to the music ..Lord please not again!
MADONNA IS AN INTERNATIONAL ICON!!! I'VE SEEN HER LAST 5 TOURS AND SHE DELIVERS!! SHE MAY SING OVER HER SELF W/ BACKUP WHEN SHE'S DOING CARTWHEELS AND SOMERSALTS BUT SHE HAND HER
LIVE VOCALS TO YOU WHEN SHE STOPS TO SING LIVE TO TELL FROZEN SECRET LIKE A PRAYER AND DEDICATE AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE FOR CRAZY FOR YOU DEDICATED TO TO HER FANS... SHE'S #1 AND SHE'S GETTING MOR POPULAR AND BIGGER!! HER LP MDNA AND CONCERT TIX SALES ARE BRAKING RECORDS AND NUMBERS BEATING IN PRESALE ALONE...SHE IS AWSOME! SHE SETS THE BAR AND HER OWN LIMITS..HATERS HATE AWAY SHE WILL LIVE TO SQASH YOUR PUNNY MINDS AND SNARKY COMMENTS AGAIN AND AGAIN...YOU CAN BET EF YEARS FROM NOW SHE WILL STILL BE BREAKING GROUND AND KICKING COMFORMITIY"RULE'S" ASS.. PIERSE MORGANS WOULD VOTE HER OFF BRiTTENS GOT TALENT WHICH SHOWS WHAT HE KNOWS( DIDN'T SHE SUE HIM FOR PUBLISHING LIES IN THE BRITISH ENQUIRER..AND WIN..POOR DOPE..HE's NOT ON THE GUEST LIST WHA WHA WHA SORRY CHAP!). MADONND RULES!! R E S P E C T!!!!
Lady Ga Ga sucks!
Oh no!! She looked so slow on her feet! I wish she would just go away!!
You don't need a big show to please your true fans. Just put on some sneakers and comfy clothes and sing everything!
Madonna is the Great one. She goes places where most women (and men:)) are afraid to go. I can't wait to see her in L.A..
question....with all the money she has made...how come she doesn't get the gap between her two front teeth fixed? maybe she likes looking stupid.
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!
I would kiss her feet, suck her toes and lick her soles!...mmmmm, tasty!
I'm proud of her.
Does she know you even exist? Put your pride in people around you.
PART II SOME JUST THINK THE WORLD JUST LOVES ME...BUT
THEY FORGET THE WORLD WILL LET YOU MAKE A BIG
FOOL OUT OF YOURSELF – THEN THEY SIT BACK AND
TALK ABOUT YOU BEHIND YOUR BACK.....
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!
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
You go girlfriend Madonna has more than paid her dues.. I do wish her well she still has the moves albeit a bit slower than her younger years never the less I enjoyed her halftime show...
What happened to that kid she stole... er, bought... er, adopted once she grew tired of walking & feeding it?
She sounds the same does the same type of routine, no talent will never pay a cent for he songs or shows.
You go girl..
you go with your lip sync self. haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Madonna can ride my big horse anytime
And how big is it?
Sea horse size... 2-3 cm.
Omg...are you suppose stop what you like doing when you get older..I hope you people who bring up age about entertainers have a miserable life when you get older ...
MADONNA, if you are reading this please come to
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'd like her to schedule a date in my pants
She needs to make more money for more plastic surgery!
I'm giving her the middle finger....
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?
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 bought my ticket. Pre-access fan club membership has its privileges.
WOOHOO! She'll be here October 6th... I'll be there!! 😀
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!
if you look at the full list of cities and dates, shes performing in Detroit as well....
