Madonna includes Atlanta date on world tour

MadonnaLoRes_4Colour_MadonnaImage-NameYou knew that Madonna’s Super Bowl performance had to be about more than just forward-promoting a new album.

Turns out the hype generated by her dazzling production is well-timed. The queen is launching a new world tour May 29 in Israel and will head to the U.S. in late August.

Atlanta is near the end of the 26-city trip with a show scheduled for Nov. 17 at Philips Arena. Ticket prices are $49, $90, $170 and $355 and on sale March 5.

Tickets for the first American concert – Aug. 28 in Philadelphia – will be available Feb. 13.

The tour is expected to be a monster spectacle, with a few stadium dates (including Sept. 6 at Yankee Stadium) sprinkled among arenas and some outdoor sites. Madonna will also visit Australia, where she hasn’t performed in two decades, as well as 26 European cities.

Anyone doubting her continued international prowess can look to the numbers from her last tour, 2008-09’s “Sticky & Sweet” outing, which sold out four dates at Madison Square Garden and 70,000-plus seats in Belgium and Helsinki.

Madonna’s 12th studio album, “MDNA,” will be released March 26. At Sunday’s Super Bowl gig, she performed the album’s first single, “Give Me All Your Luvin,” a pop piffle featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.

Won’t be going to this show, unless Atlanta Spirit Group can sell the Hawks and Philips Arena before then. Sorry. BOYCOTT ATLANTA SPIRIT GROUP!!!!

cps – Would you go if she was at the Georgia Dome? What difference does it make where she plays, as long as she shows up. This isn’t the Hawks playing. You just can’t satisfy anyone anymore.

I guess April and August do start with the same letter.

Thanks, Robert C for pointing that out. It’s been fixed. Apparently my proofreading skills aren’t at their sharpest at 3 a.m.!

I’ll save my money, thanks, than indulge in a narcissistic shrew churning out obnoxious techno-pop for an audience primarly consisting of the Logo channel’s main demographic.

T.H, the logo channel’s main demographic is the most fun to rob, mug, and main, cuz it is the latest fashion you know, queer bashing sponsored by City Hall and APD, and apparently you think it’s funny too. Hope Madonna doesn’t get carjacked. I’d rather have a root canal without novacaine than go near that cesspool of crime and corruption. Love Madonna, Hate Phillips.

Greenville has a beautiful downtown.well mannered folks Atlanta has got to be the rudest city in the south starting with the very rude Atlanta airport all the way into the city..we would rather go to beautiful Chattanooga,Greenville,Charleston, for shows
