Madonna’s A Moneymaker

The woman does have staying power, I’ll give her that.

Madonna‘s Confessions On A Dancefloor tour is set to be the most lucrative tour by female performer ever.

However, if you’re a Madonna fan living somewhere other than North America, Europe and Japan, you’re pretty much out of luck.

The Confessions On A Dancefloor tour, which includes 54 dates in three months, is about half the size of global tours mounted by bands such as U2 and the Rolling Stones.

But music industry experts believe that Madonna’s tour, which starts in Los Angeles at the end of this month, will earn more than £100 million and see her topple Cher – whose recent two-year tour made £90 million – as the female artist whose tour raises the largest amount of money.

Madonna’s shows are expected to earn more because of high ticket prices – British fans will pay between £80 and £170 – and restricted appearances, to keep down touring costs.

Aside from two dates in Japan, the tour will be confined to America and Europe.

The strategy has provoked criticism, not least from Australian fans, who believe that they have been unfairly excluded.

She also provides us with the Quote of the Day:

“I’m always going, ‘Oh God, I’m a crap mother’. I want to get home and put my kids to bed.”
