Madonna announced Monday she will perform exclusively in theater settings, including The Wiltern in Los Angeles, in support of her upcoming album.
The “Madame X” tour in support of the album of the same name will begin Sept. 12 at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in New York and will feature multiple nights of shows in each city. Seven shows are scheduled in New York, followed by four at the Chicago Theatre. Madonna initially announced five shows at The Wiltern in Los Angeles — on Nov. 12, 13, 14, 16 and 17 — but she quickly added four more dates — Nov. 21, 23, 24 and 25.
Other 2019 tour dates include the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the Boch Center Wang Theatre in Boston, The Met Philadelphia and the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theatre.
The tour will then resume early next year with performances at the Coliseum in Lisbon, a city where Madonna has recently been living, the Palladium in London and at the Grand Rex in Paris.
“The chance for fans to see Madonna at these venues is incredibly special,” said Arthur Fogel, president of global touring and chairman of global music at Live Nation. “We are proud and excited to be able to deliver this ultimate opportunity for her fans.”
The new album, scheduled to be released on June 14, features 15 songs that “celebrate Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences.” Two songs from the album have already been shared with fans — “I Rise” and “Medellin,” with another to follow on Friday.
