SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – Hot on the heels of her extravagant Super Bowl halftime performance, Madonna has announced a world tour in support of her new album, “MDNA” and making her way to San Jose in October.
It’s the first time the Material Girl has gone on tour in three years.
Madonna will kick off her tour with a concert in Tel Aviv, Israel on May 29th and make her way through 26 European cities including London, Paris, Milan and Berlin.
She’s also got tour dates in South America and Australia before moving on to North America where she will make her Bay Area stop of the tour at the HP Pavilion in San Jose on October 6.
People who buy tickets online to a U.S. performance will receive their choice of a digital or physical copy of the new MDNA album with every ticket purchased.
Madonna’s previous tour, Sticky & Sweet, ran between 2008 and 2009.
Tickets to see Madonna on October 6th at HP Pavilion on sale Monday February 13th at LiveNation.com.
The announcement came just days after Madonna’s halftime performance at the Super Bowl on Feb 5, with a record 114 million people tuning in to watch the glitzy, Cleopatra-themed show, which was lauded by critics but resulted in an apology from television network NBC and the NFL for a rude gesture made by British hip hop star M.I.A. during the show.
