Madonna adds sixth and final London date to Celebration Tour after phenomenal demand from fans
Madonna has announced a sixth and date at London's O2 Arena, following sell-out demand for her upcoming The Celebration Tour.
The Celebration Tour will be the first time Madge will be mounting a live show based on her greatest hits, promising to rip through some of her biggest, era-defining smashes throughout her career, which now spans four decades.
Following sensational demand which saw all previous four London dates sell-out almost instantly, the Queen of Pop today announced that fans will be able to try one more time to see her live in the UK.
The Celebration Tour will arrive at the O2 Arena for a fifth date on Wednesday, December 6, following several headline shows across the continent. Tickets go on sale Wednesday (February 1) at 9am.
In a statement, Madonna's touring agency Live Nation said there had been "sensational demand" from UK fans, with The Celebration Tour already selling out 35+ dates worldwide, pushing 600,000 tickets and counting to eager fans.
The Celebration Tour promises to be a "one-of-a-kind" musical experience, with RuPaul's Drag Race icon Bob The Drag Queen set as Madonna's support act across all dates on the global tour.
Good news comes with the bad, however, as it was recently announced that due to Madonna's focus on her new tour, her plans to direct and write a biopic based on her early life have been scrapped.
Ozark star Julia Garner had apparently won the role of Madonna in, uh, Madonna's biopic of Madonna, emerging from a quite frankly terrifying-sounding bootcamp, which also included starlets such as Florence Pugh and Euphoria's Alexa Demie alongside musical stars Sky Ferreira and Bebe Rexha all vying for the chance to play the Queen of Pop on the silver screen.
By any metric, Madonna still ranks as the most successful female pop star on the Official Charts. She still holds the record for the most number one singles for any female solo act on the Official Singles Chart. Only Cliff Richard and Westlife (14), The Beatles (17) and Elvis (21) have more. She's also still the female solo act with the most UK Number 1 albums in UK chart history, with 12 in total.
