Interesting Facts:
  • An estimated 750,000 people saw Madonna live in the U.S.
  • Ticket prices ranged from $65 to $930 US.
  • Madonna had to cancel three shows planned in Israel because of threats to harm her and her children. The official word is that Madonna canceled the shows because she wanted to focus on touring Europe, but nothing would stop her from touring Tel Aviv except such threats.
  • Niki Harris is not joining Madonna on this tour. Harris says she's not touring because she wants to stay home with her children. Previously Niki was backup for Madonna on the Who's That Girl, Blond Ambition, Girlie Show and Drowned World Tours.

Official Tour Press Release:
March 22nd New York – For immediate release. "I'm happy to confirm the rumors. Madonna will be going out on tour this spring and summer," announced the star's long time manager, Caresse Henry. Clear Channel Entertainment is the promoter of Madonna's worldwide tour, which begins in Los Angeles on May 24th. 

The tour will sweep across major markets in the US including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta and Miami and then continue with stops in London, Paris and proposed visits to Israel and Ireland. 

According to Ms. Henry, "Madonna has already started rehearsals for 'The re-Invention Tour' and she can't wait to get back on stage to recreate her songs from the earliest days of her career up until the present. There is no doubt that this tour will be the pinnacle of her long standing and well deserved reputation as one of the most exciting live performers of our time. And as a special treat to her fans, existing Icon fan club members will have access to tickets prior to the on-sale dates in local markets." 

The Material Girl, a Warner Bros./Maverick recording artist, represented by Creative Artists Agency, is a five-time Grammy® winner, a multi MTV Award winner and has sold over 250 million albums during the span of her extraordinary two decade career. In addition, she has had more Top Ten singles than any female artist in history and second only to Elvis Presley.
