Madonna announces London Palladium residency

By | Published on Monday 13 May 2019


Madonna has announced a six night residency at the London Palladium for early next year. This will follow the release of her new album, ‘Madame X’, which is due out in June.

The Palladium shows will also follow a run of multiple night performances at theatres in the US this autumn, and will be her first UK concerts since her 2015 arena tour.

“The chance for fans to see Madonna at these venues is incredibly special”, says Live Nation’s Arthur Fogel of the various theatre residencies. “We are proud and excited to be able to deliver this ultimate opportunity for her fans”.

To announce the tour, Madonna and Diplo made a comedy skit. So that’s fun. If you’re not into watching videos, I’ve transcribed Madonna’s half of the conversation as if it was just a straight quote. It almost works too: “I’m going on tour. I’m going on a special tour. I’m going on a theatre tour. People didn’t believe in Einstein either, they thought he was a quack. He discovered the Theory Of Relativity. Have you experienced the magic of a theatre? The intimacy of a theatre? I want to have an intimate experience with my fans”.

Aaaaaaaaayway, ‘Madame X’ is out on 14 Jun and the London Palladium residency will run from 26 Jan to 2 Feb (with 28 and 31 Jan off). If you want tickets, you can sign up to Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan thing between now and Thursday. Tickets will then go on sale to those registered on 24 May. Standard tickets will cost between £60 and FOUR HUNDRED AND FUCKING EIGHTY POUNDS. Although there will be ten tickets for each performance made available for just £10 through Madonna’s website.
