Madonna To French Kiss Her Backup Dancers All Over The World


Madonna has announced the first string of dates for her world tour, which kicks off in late August in Wales and makes its way to a bunch of baseball stadiums (Dodger Stadium!) and enormodomes arenas in the U.S. beginning in October. The tour–which is (sigh) called the Sticky and Sweet Tour–is Madonna’s first under her 10-year, multimillion-dollar deal with Live Nation. Did you know that her last three tours have grossed a combined $400 million? Ticket prices are going to be between $55 and $300, which should help on that particular “keeping up with past glories” front. Dates after the jump.
