The Next Tour?

Recommended Posts

Small theaters fit only a few thousand people. They make far less money per night than an arena tour. So she won't do theaters. Janet Jackson does theaters lol.

i mean as a mini tour, not to bring in a lot of money. just to show her new work or something different.

An arena tour with less shows in Europe and NA & a South American leg instead

No more stadiums in Europe. Her shows don't work well in stadiums, it gave her a lot of negative press & there is not enough demand to sell out. the market is saturated. Arenas all the way

Stadium venues are nice for live recordings. The reality of being in the audience for one of them is something else.

I think she might streamline her schedule with one night only dates for major cities. Rebel Heart / S&S gave LA only one night. I hate NY gets multiple shows regardless for every tour.

South American fans, can Madonna do Arenas in SA or does she have to do stadiums? Just wondering why she didn't go at all to SA on RH or if she would return again only doing Arena tours from now on?

We dont really have the concept of arena shows in Brazil

We have very few arenas which are small around 10.000 where the local acts perform and most of then are old, do t know if the have the infrastructure for a M show

Also we dont have seated floor for concerts , it doenst make sense for us

And M can easily fill one stadium date in pretty much everycity where we have the new World cup stadiums.

She didnt come with RH because the economy of the main SA countries Argentina and Brazil are on the trash , with the first starting to recover and the second on a politc crisis

Thanks for the explanation, hope she goes back next tour but sounds like she'll have to do stadiums then which I think after MDNA she was a bit over doing but fingers crossed!

I can see her doing a arena/stadium tour and will go to South America this time.

I also have a feeling she won't miss Asia. There are countries where she could go and countries she did go this tour that could've had more shows if her schedule allowed her to.

I think IF she is over stadiums then South America will miss out again if what "Starman" told me is true!?

I still think she should be something like this :

Europe & North America (20 dates each, limited cities)

Asia & Oceania (20 dates total, more cities in Japan & include South Korea this time)

South/Latin America (15 dates total including new cities in Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Columbia etc)

= 75 shows total.

I think she should do 2 separate shows.

1. A crowd pleasing big production arena show with a good helping of hits

2. An intimate show in small venues with more obscure songs a la Tears of a Clown

She can charge a fortune for the latter and do both shows in each city. They can even offer special prices for those of us attending both as part of an ultimate "VIP package."

And I think start the tour in Asia this time, it did better there than anywhere else. South America is a must too on the next tour. I find it hard to believe RHT could not work in stadiums. Of course it could have.

I think too if they charge more reasonable prices they can do Australia again. I imagine the buzz from the RHT will help sales for a new tour.

Nah thats a production nightmare , 2 venues , 2 shows , security/transport , time wasted in people not working

If anything the TOAC type shows should be something between eras

Prince did it. For free!

She'd have to come on early though to fit 2 shows in a night so you're probably right, ain't gonna happen :lol:

I'm amazed it hasn't happened. It seemed like she would do that but I suppose she's been busy with Rocco, the DVD, planning a new movie etc.

But I think she will definitely do some toac shows again in the future. Maybe after the movie. I could imagine that she does several cities too. I hope so!

I want a huge tour, stadiums, all over the world with huge stage and setlist full of hits. I know many love personal shows, but with some like tears of a clown once in a while I'm more than ok.

I'm not sure Madonna would do this again!?

Is there demand big enough to sell out big stadiums globally again? They were struggling to sell out 2nd nights on arenas this time round let's not forget.....

Depends how her next album is handled, because with another hit on her hands, I have no doubt she could return to stadiums.

Agreed, she wont do stadiums again, she seemed to really over outdoor shows after MDNA when she got sick & had to contend with the weather over & over again!

I can see her doing a CT and doing stadiums in select markets? I wouldn't be surprised if her next Asian trek was mostly stadiums, and she would def have to do them in South America

She did at least 2 shows in most european cities. That's around 30k people interested. With stadiums prices could be a bit lower, increasing demand as well. There's also lost of european countries that she barely went. She could visit them again.

She also has lots of asian countries she could do stadiums. plus south america and some north american shows.

But it all depends on her next album and what she does until then. A decent team could do wonders for her...oh well.

We should perhaps get some Jean-Paul Gaultier designs for costumes next tour, no? It seems she alternates tours with designs from JPG:

BAT (JPG yes)

GS (JPG no)

DWT (JPG yes)

RIT (JPG no)

CT (JPG yes)
S&ST (JPG no)

MDNA (JPG yes)

RHT (JPG no)

???? (JPG yes?)

I think she could fill stadiums again if she made the tickets affordable again instead of expensive tickets to fill small arenas. Sadly she wont do that because LN is all about the money, the last tour showed us that the touring scenario is super hard right now financially. She won t do small simple shows...either she is in her prime.

Madonna is also pushing 60, the last tour was the "arena tour" and god knows even so it was hard to sold out many nights. I think she is about big shows, big lights, lasers, video screens 250 dancers on stage, props and stuff like that, things more fitting on a stadium so is a sticky situation in a struggling industry.

I hate to say it but she doesnt attract the same amount of people as before , unless she comes out with a miraclous new and succesful abum that make people interested again she should stop touring all together for the sake of dignity. Bowie and others at some point decided stop touring because they knew it wasnt the same...the industry is the pits also. She used to cash 300 millions or more per tour now she barelly can land 150 etc. It doesnt worth the hassle.

This is possibly the dumbest statement I've read yet on this forum.

Whatever she decides to do, there will ALWAYS be demand for her to do intimate showcases like Tears of a Clown.

I think Madonna's shows are much more suited to arenas than stadiums. Her shows are visual and if you are so far away that you can't see all the dancers and the visual artistic side of it, you really miss out and don't have such a positive experience. Stadium shows to me are much more suited to conventional "rock" artists like the Stones, Billy Joel/Elton John etc, where they just play their hits like the recordings and there's not a lot to see. Sticky and Sweet and MDNA may have grossed a lot by being in stadiums but there were a lot of complaints about the experience and the sound etc. among fans. Whereas RHT there was a real connection with fans and most people left with a very positive feeling.

Also Bowie and a lot of other artists stop touring not because of the money, but because they had health issues and they couldn't take all the traveling required. Madonna is still in great health so I think she will continue touring for a long time to come.
