(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Ticket sales for Madonna’s upcoming “Confessions” tour have been selling out rapidly, with new shows added to several cities.
The tour, which begins May 21st in LA, has sold out four shows at Bercy Stadium in Paris, seven shows at Wembley Arena in London, two shows at the 40,000-capacity Amsterdam Arena, and four shows at Madison Square Garden. In Los Angeles, Montreal, Miami and Chicago, the queen of pop sold out two shows apiece, and also sold out single dates in Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Hartford, Phoenix and San Jose.
Tour producer Arthur Fogel, president of Live Nation’s TNA International, told Billboard that there had clearly been no resistance to high ticket prices, ranging from $50 to $350.
“What you have is a recognition that she creates and delivers a spectacular shows every time she goes on the road,” Fogel said. “And this tour will be no different.”
This tour could potentially gross over $200 million, making “Confessions” the top grossing tour ever for a female artist. In 2004, Madonna’s “Re-Invention” tour grossed $125 million, and drew more than 900,000 fans to 56 shows. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
