Material Girl Leaves Doubters In The Dust For Biggest Tour Of 2008
Neither wind, nor rain, gas prices, nor the economy can slow down the momentum of Madonna fans who are turning out in record numbers all over the globe to scoop up tickets for the upcoming "Sticky & Sweet" Tour. Today, Live Nation confirmed that Mexico City's Foro Sol Stadium shows scheduled for November 29th and 30th sold more than 100,000 tickets in just three hours, resulting in back to back sellouts at the famed stadium.
Mexico City joins the growing list of sold out Madonna shows in Paris, Lisbon, New York, Zurich, Boston, Chicago, Denver, East Rutherford, NJ, Oakland, Las Vegas, Houston, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver all of which sold out within hours of going on sale.
To date Madonna has sold out 90% of the tickets available for her 42-date global tour, which kicks off in Cardiff, Wales on August 23rd.
With more than 70,000 tickets sold for the Sticky & Sweet Zurich Show at the Military Airfield Dubendorf on August 30th, Lisbon's 75,000 tickets sold and 50,000 tickets sold for her Vancouver dates and four Madison Square Garden shows sold out in New York City in addition to the nearby Izod Center in East Rutherford for a total of 65,000 New York area tickets sold, Madonna has sold more than 1 Million tickets thus far on her global tour.
Madonna, whose most recent CD 'Hard Candy' debuted at Number One in over 30 countries, has made it her personal mission to challenge herself to top her previous tours. With rehearsals well under way for 'Sticky & Sweet,' Madonna and famed director and long-time collaborator Jamie King are creating an extraordinary never-before seen stage set, groundbreaking audio and eye popping visual effects. Madonna will be joined onstage with a new band and 18 dancers that reaffirm that this is a singular event that Madonna fans can not miss.
"With 'Sticky & Sweet,' Madonna is on track to break her own record as the top grossing female artist of all time," said Arthur Fogel, Live Nation's of Chairman of Global Music and CEO of Global Touring. "Her sales are extraordinary in every market she's playing and illustrate what an unparalleled live draw Madonna is for music fans all over the world.

Thanks for the info joey!
On June 16th, a photograph was leaked onto the Internet, featuring a piece of paper attached to a guitar case, reportedly at the base in Manhattan where the band and dancers are rehearsing without Madonna. While it is not possible to fully confirm the authenticity of the set list, the way it was leaked and the situation it is in prove it to be a very likely contender. A strike denotes an actual penstroke through a word on the setlist.
Rumored set list:
Candy Shop / I Want Candy
Open Your Heart
Borderline Express Yourself
Beat Goes On
Who's That Girl Interlude
La Isla Bonita Who's That Girl
Dress You Up
Rescue Me Interlude
Devil Wouldn't Recognise You
She's Not Me
4 Minutes Interlude
Give It 2 Me

MADONNA CELEBRATES ALBUM RELEASE WITH LIVE SHOW
Madonna celebrated the release of her new album "Hard Candy" with a live show at Roseland Ballroom in New York on Wednesday night (30APR08).
The star gave a typically electric performance, singing several new songs from her hotly anticipated new album for the first time.
Superstar Justin Timberlake joined the Material Girl on stage for "4 Minutes (To Save the World)" - the first single to be released from "Hard Candy" and already a hit.
Devoted fans had lined up for days outside Roseland Ballroom in order to see the gig.
Some went to extraordinary lengths. One super fan admitted "I paid $2000 for my ticket. I had someone stand on line and it was forfeited because it was not on my wrist."
Her friend did not think that was too much. She said, "Madonna is worth any amount of money. If you have it... I would fork up my tuition bill to see her. I actually did that with refunded money from school, actually. Spend money to get Madonna merchandise"
Madonna and her dancers wore Dolce and Gabbana at the show and thrilled the packed ballroom.
"Hard Candy" was released on April 29th.
