Madonna, performs live on stage after the 64th annual Eurovision Song Contest on May 18, 2019.

You can dance. For inspiration! Madonna posted a NSFW video surrounded by her celebrity friends where she announced her new tour. Unlike most of her tours which focus on her new music, this tour will see her performing music from her entire catalog, spanning back to her 1983 self-titled debut album. The world tour will be the Queen of Pop’s first-ever career retrospective, featuring a compilation of her biggest hits across four decades of music.

“It’s going to be the biggest tour she’s ever done,” one executive familiar with her plans tells Billboard. The tour buzz comes just months after Madonna released her career-spanning compilation album Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones, spanning her entire dance club career. In 2021, Madonna signed a deal with Warner Music Group for an “extensive, multi-year series of catalog releases that will revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon.”

Madonna last toured in 2019 and early 2020 on her Madame X tour, which struggled with production delays and Madonna’s recurring hip and knee injuries. Though the tour ultimately earned strong critic reviews, its late start time often angered ticket holders and prompted two class actions lawsuits from fans. Madonna’s 2008-2009 Sticky and Sweet Tour is the highest grossing tour by a female artist ever, netting $407 million. Her most recent Madame X theater run grossed $36.4 million.

When it comes to choosing her set list for this new tour, Madonna will have 57 titles to choose from. Produced by Live Nation, the 35-city global tour will kick off in North America on Saturday, July 15th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC with stops in Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and more before making its way to Europe where she will hit 11 cities throughout the fall, including London, Barcelona, Paris, and Stockholm, among others. The Celebration Tour will wrap in Amsterdam on Friday, December 1st. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 20 and Friday, January 27at 10 a.m. local time at madonna.com/tour.
