Madonna's next world tour will start in the Middle East, and exactly in Tel Aviv, Israel, on May 31, 2012, as we at DrownedMadonna.com exclusively announced.
In June and July the tour will move to Europe, followed by shows in North America in August and September.
A tour announcement was planned for early this week with tickets going on sale this Friday. But Live Nation recently changed this original plan. Now everything is apparently postponed for next year.
But this is not the only change to the original plans of this very high budget tournèe. As you remember, DrownedMadonna.com received an early draft of Madonna's tour itinerary by an anonimous and unconfirmed source. We were not able to confirm or deny it at the time, and after a few hours of debate, we decided to share it with all Madonna's fans.
The tour was expected to start in Auckland, New Zeland, in March 2012, followed by several shows in Australia and South East Asia. What we are hearing these days is that, when Live Nation decided to postpone the tour, the shows in New Zeland and Australia have been moved to October and November 2012. Also Stuff.co.nz is talking about negotiation to bring Madonna to New Zeland in October 2012. If things do not change again, these shows will follow concerts in South East Asia.
Talks are that there could be a second leg of the tour on 2013, including shows in Japan and South Africa.
To sum up, the itinary of Madonna's next world tour taking shape now is:
- May 31, 2012: Tel Aviv, Israel
- June-July 2012: Europe
- August-September 2012: North America
- October 2012: South East Asia
- October-November 2012: New Zeland and Australia
