Madonna Tour Garners Quick Sell-Outs

Posted by Sylar On Monday, May 19, 2008
Initial on-sales for Madonna's upcoming Sticky & Sweet tour are off to a strong start, with weekend sell-outs reported in Paris (Sept. 20), Boston (Oct. 15) and Chicago (Oct. 26), followed by sell-outs in New York this morning.

Performances at Manhattan's Madison Square Garden (Oct. 6-7) quickly went clean, followed by a third show now confirmed for Oct. 11.

The tour will begin Aug. 23 in Cardiff, Wales, and will play arenas and stadiums throughout Europe, including a number of cities where Madonna has not performed in the past 15 years, or ever. The tour begins in North America on Oct. 4 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J., with most U.S. dates going in sale May 24.

Live Nation Global Touring chairman Arthur Fogel is the worldwide producer of the tour.

    We need to redefine the meaning of "sell-out," because much of the time lots of tickets are made available after the on sale date. Why is nobody talking about the prices? Once reasonable mid-arena seats for a Madonna show are now priced at over $300. She seems to know as much about the recession as George Bush.

    I don't mind the price as much because she is so great on stage and you always get your money's worth, but I am very disappointed by how quickly the tickets "sell out." I think most of them go to ticket brokers, leaving very few good seats for real people hoping to pay face value. The fans deserve better, not just from Madonna but from the whole music industry.
