Madonna is set to announce 40th anniversary tour – and this is everything we know so far

Madonna is rumoured to be planning an anniversary tour including UK dates.

Pop icon Madonna is apparently planning a huge anniversary tour – and this is everything we know so far.

The legendary singer is set to announce a 40th anniversary Greatest Hits Tour with dates planned in the UK.

According to The Sun, the popstar has “booked out London’s O2 Arena for multiple events”.

It would mark her first ever compilation tour and feature her biggest hits that the publication says is “starting at the end of this year”.

They added that she’s in talks with creative director Jamie King, who first worked with Madonna to choreograph her 1995 music video “Human Nature”.

They’ve also worked together on some of her iconic tours including Re-Invention World Tour, Confessions Tour and more recently the Madame X Tour.

The source said: “Madonna is trying something completely new – and really giving fans, young and old, what they want.

“She wants to capitalise on tracks like ‘Frozen’ and ‘Material Girl’ popping off on TikTok, and introduce her back catalogue to an entirely new generation.

“Previously she has always wanted to be forward-facing and focus on whatever new album she’s plugging. But now, in her mid-sixties, she is going back to basics and once again reinventing herself.

“That being said, it is sure to be no holds barred and suitably risqué.

“Her last Madame X Tour was in small theatres, but this one will be in stadiums, with the O2 already confirmed. It’s massively exciting.”

The Madame X Tour took place between 2019 and 2020 and saw her play 75 intimate shows at theatres across the globe.

However she was forced to cancel and postpone several dates due to recurring hip and knee injuries.

The tour saw the setlist focus on the Madame X album, among some fan-favourites, but a greatest hits tour would likely cover her entire – and iconic – back catalogue.
