Madonna Announces Performances In Australia & New Zealand

June 21, 2015

Live Nation announced today that Madonna will make a historic return to Australia performing live for the first time in 23 years as well as her first ever shows in New Zealand, with her Rebel Heart Tour. The tour will kick off at Vector Arena on March 5th and 6th in Auckland, followed by the Australian dates presented by Telstra Thanks® and including concerts March 12th & 13th in Melbourne, March 19th & 20th in Sydney and March 26th & 27th in Brisbane (complete itinerary follows). Tickets go on sale Monday, July 6th at 10am. 

The Rebel Heart Tour begins in Montreal on September 9th and continues throughout North America and UK/Europe.  “Madonna continues to be one of the most successful touring artists in history. Her shows are always legendary and we are thrilled to have her back on tour,” says Arthur Fogel, President - Global Touring and Chairman - Global Music.

The Rebel Heart Tour follows the March 9 release of Madonna’s critically acclaimed 13th studio album - Rebel Heart - by Interscope Records.    A week after its release Rebel Heart debuted at No. 1 in Australia making it Madonna’s eleventh No. 1 album on the Australian ARIA Charts, tying the record for most number one albums on the chart.  In the United States the album shot to the top of the Billboard Sales Chart.  The first two singles from the album, "Living for Love" and "Ghosttown" went to No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Charts, and Madonna subsequently set a new world record becoming the only artist to have 45 Number One songs on any chart in Billboard History.  On June 16th, Madonna released the “Bitch I’m Madonna” EP featuring ten remixes from Sander Kleinenberg, Fedde Le Grand, Junior Sanchez, and more. 

Along with extraordinary critical acclaim as an artist, songwriter and producer who has sold a record breaking 300 million records, Madonna’s reputation as one of the most successful, provocative and enduring live performers of all time speaks for itself. The 2008/2009 Sticky & Sweet tour is the highest grossing tour of all time for a solo artist and the 2012 MDNA tour was the most successful tour of that year.

Please come to Brazil!
I really hope Madonna will bring her Rebel Heart show to Brazil, and I think most Brazilian fans are waiting for some kind of official information, will you please provide it to us? This album has been a historical listen to me, and a unique inspiration. To see it live would be a great privilege.
