Next stop Dublin for Madonna after Super Bowl extravaganza
MADONNA will play Dublin this summer, it was announced today.
Fresh from her acclaimed half-time performance during Sunday's Super Bowl in the US, Her Madgesty is bringing her latest tour to the Aviva in what promises to be a similarly opulent affair.
Tickets for the one-night only concert are expected to be snapped up by Madonna fans across the country. The gig will take place in the Aviva on July 24.
The concert forms part of Madonna's World Tour 2012, which kicks off in Tel Aviv, Israel, on May 29 and is expected to take in 26 cities across Europe, as well as dates in South America and Australia.
The 53-year-old pop queen last played Ireland in 2004, where she performed her 'Re-Invention' show in Slane Castle.
Madonna has 37 top ten hits and more than 300 million album sales under her belt.
While she's expected to perform new tracks from her latest album MDNA, old favourites such as Like A Prayer and Holiday are also expected to feature.
"Madonna's track record as a world class entertainer and touring artist speaks for itself," said Arthur Fogel, CEO of Live Nation Entertainment Global Touring and Madonna tour promoter.
"Her artistry, talent and creative productions get bigger and better with each tour and Madonna 2012 will be no exception. We are thrilled to have her back on the road and know her fans feel the same," he added.
It has been a busy few weeks for the singer, who won a Golden Globe for her song Masterpiece, on the soundtrack of her new film W.E. and has just released her latest album.
The record, entitled MDNA, has already won the Number One spot on iTunes in the US, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Canada, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands.
Madonna wowed fans during her Super Bowl performance on Sunday evening.
Dressed in Egyptian regalia, Madonna took to the stage alongside Cee Lo Green, Nicki Minaj and controversial rapper MIA.
Despite MIA's rude gesture during the performance, Madonna has been receiving praise from all quarters for her half-time show which saw her perform classic Like A Prayer as well as new track Give Me All Your Luvin'.
Tickets for the Dublin concert are due to go on sale at Ticketmaster on Friday, February 17 at 8am.
