Turn It Out, Bitches


From Madonna's "Confessions Tour" website:


APRIL 3 - OFFICIAL 'CONFESSIONS TOUR' PRESS RELEASE

MADONNA CONFESSES ‘THE WORLD IS MY DANCE FLOOR’ - ‘CONFESSIONS’ TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

April 3, 2006… New York City. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Madonna will be dancing and singing across the stages of the world this spring and summer, it was announced today. The “Confessions Tour” with concerts across major US cities, Canada, Europe and Japan will begin in Los Angeles on May 21st. “Confessions” tour dates were officially confirmed by Madonna’s managers Angela Becker and Guy Oseary, along with Arthur Fogel, President of The Next Adventur (a Live Nation Company), the tour’s worldwide promoter.

Tour stops in North America for the “Confessions Tour” will include arenas in Chicago, Boston, San Jose, Phoenix, Fresno, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Miami, Montreal and New York. Overseas appearances will take place in arenas, stadiums and outdoor venues in Paris, France; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Cardiff, Wales; Rome, Italy; Dusseldorf and Hannover Germany; Horsens, Denmark; Osaka and Tokyo Japan.

The “Confessions” Tour will be directed by longtime Madonna collaborator Jamie King with Stuart Price once again on board as Musical Director. Arianne Phillips and Jean Paul Gaultier, long standing members of Madonna’s creative team, will respectively oversee and design costumes for the tour.

Madonna’s previous tour, the 2004 “Re-Invention Tour” was the most successful tour of that year, according to Billboard Magazine.

The Warner Bros. Records mega star, whose current CD “Confessions on a Dance Floor” debuted at No.1 in 29 countries, has already begun rehearsals in Los Angeles with her talented troupe of musicians and dancers. With a staggering 35 No. 1 hits on Billboard’s dance charts during the course of her unparalleled career, it’s no surprise that Madonna issued the following mission statement regarding the “Confessions Tour”: “I’m going to turn the world into one big dance floor,” exhorted the Material Girl.

The multi-Grammy Award winning artist, songwriter, children’s book author, producer and video visionary with an unrivaled reputation for astonishing stage spectacles, has made musical history many times over including international record sales of over 200 million albums. A cultural innovator of astonishing diversity and enduring appeal, Madonna has defined our era with a sound, style and vision that has inspired countless artists and millions of fans around the globe. In the process, she has pioneered a new model of creative empowerment, overseeing a multi-faceted career that encompasses virtually every aspect of contemporary culture.


As I read this a rhinestone tear drop of joy fell from my glittery eye. I last saw Her Madgesty on the D.C. stop of the 'Music" World Tour. Unfortch, there is no scheduled stop in D.C. for the "Confessions" Tour :( But Philly is only a 3 hr car ride away. Rumor has it that the tour will feature dancers in disco and roller rink sets, as well as full length catwalks. I'm in a frenzy - HOT! HOT!MADONNA LIVE!

I am EXTREMELY PISSED about the lack of DC date. I saw her in Philly for Drowned World Tour four years ago, but it won't be the same without my very best gay. HOWEVER, he lives in NYC now, so MSG is on.
