The trek will visit United States and Canada, as well as United Kingdom and Europe. Produced by Live Nation, the 35-city trek kicks off on July 15th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC and continues through December 1, where the tour will wrap up at Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, NL.

Madonna’s Celebration Tour will make stops in several major cities, including Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and more before making its way to Europe where she will hit 11 cities throughout the fall, including London, Barcelona, Paris, and Stockholm, among others.

Celebrating Madonna’s artistic journey, The Celebration Tour will take fans through her four decades of hits and is expected to pay tribute to the city of New York, where her career in music launched. 

“I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for,” Madonna said. 

The tour will offer a one-of-a-kind experience with special guest Bob The Drag Queen (also known as Caldwell Tidicue), who will appear as support in all 35 cities.

The Celebration Tour marks Madonna’s 12th career tour and the first-ever celebration of four decades of music and her greatest hits. Her set list during the celebratory trek is expected to span across her entire career from her debut studio album, Madonna (1983), to her latest release, Madame X (2019).

The seven-time GRAMMY award winner revealed the news via a Nuno Xico–directed clip, which plays on the 1991 Madonna documentary, Madonna: Truth or Dare. The clip features Madonna, Lil Wayne, Eric André, Jack Black, Amy Schumer, Judd Apatow, Diplo, Kate Berlant, Larry Owens, Meg Stalter and more playing a game of Truth or Dare at a star-studded dinner party.

During the game, each of the stars ask risqué truth or dare questions before Schumer dared Madonna to go on a “world tour and play your greatest mother-f**king hits.” 

“Four decades, as in forty years, as in all those songs, we’re talking ‘Like A Virgin,’ [and more] Wait hold on, that’s a lot of songs. You think people would come to that show?” Madonna asked each dinner party guest.

“Okay, so the answer is f**k yeah!” Madonna exclaimed as her celebrity guests went wild cheering “Madonna world tour!”

“80s, 90s, 2000s, four decades of music, welcome to the party bit**es,” Madonna said as the clip concluded.
