More ‘Sweet’ Sales for Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour! Stadiums and Arenas Sell Out in Record Time


The demand for tickets in Paris for Madonna’s scheduled September 20th performance was so staggering that a second and final performance has just been announced for September 21st. The Sticky & Sweet Zurich show at the Military Airfield Dubendorf scheduled for August 30th has just glided past the 70,000 mark as Madonna fans buy tickets in record breaking numbers for that show as well as in Vancouver, where Madonna’s October 30th performance sold 50,000 tickets in a record breaking 29 minutes. In addition, due to instant sellouts in Toronto at Air Canada Centre on October 18th and Montreal at the Bell Centre on October 22nd, second shows in both markets have been added — October 19th in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre and October 23 at Montreal’s Bell Centre. These new sellout performances add to a list of sellouts that already include three sold out Madison Square Garden shows in New York City on October 6, 7 and 11 and sellouts in Boston and Chicago where a second show October 27th at the United Center will go on sale on June 2nd. Additional Madonna shows on sale this weekend include: Los Angeles, San Diego, Houston, Miami, Las Vegas, Denver, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Atlantic City (see listing below venue, show date and on-sale dates).

The Sticky & Sweet Tour, where Madonna once again joins creative forces with director Jamie King, is expected to surpass her previous sold out Confessions Tour in terms of production, visual enhancement, technology, dancing, singing, costumes and nonstop entertainment. A special stage is being created to showcase Madonna, her band, and a stunning troop of dancers, all of which will give fans a breathtaking never before seen or heard once-in-a- lifetime experience. Madonna recently gave fans a preview of what they might expect at promotional shows in New York, Paris and the UK which received overwhelming raves from critics and fans.

Madonna’s current CD “HARD CANDY” which debuted at the number one slot in 37 countries remains the number one CD on Billboard’s European album chart along with holding the number one single spot on BIllboard’s European single chart with the smash hit “4 Minutes.” In the US, “HARD CANDY” has remained a Top 10 album since its release.

The Sticky & Sweet Tour is being produced by Live Nation. For complete tour information, news, contests, and more, visit: or
