Madonna has added another date in London to her 2023 Celebration Tour after the previous five quickly sold out.

The Holiday hitmaker will be setting off on a mammoth world tour later this year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of her iconic career, the first gig of which will be in Vancouver on July 15.

So far, Madonna, who is the best-selling female solo touring artist of all time, has sold 600,000 tickets and counting.

Given Madonna’s popularity in the UK she’s had to add five more dates to the solo London gig originally planned, with the sixth and final date being confirmed on Monday.

The 64-year-old pop legend will be rocking up to the capital on Saturday October 14 for her first four dates on the Europe leg of the world tour, all of which are already sold out.

But the Like A Virgin megastar has announced she will be returning to London’s O2 in December, where she will play a further two gigs; one on December 5 which is now sold out, and another the night after on December 6, which is currently the only London date still available to buy.

General admission tickets for this final London gig will go on sale Wednesday February 1 at 9am, and the day before at the same time for VIP Madonna fans, all via the official website.

The Queen of Pop will perform 35 gigs in North America in cities including Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, and more, and will be hitting up 11 European cities throughout the fall, of which London currently has the most dates.

The tour will pay homage to the star’s whole 40-year career, so expect the classics like Holiday, Vogue, Material Girl and Like A Virgin, as well as oldies but goodies that have perhaps been left off her setlist in recent years in favour of new tracks.

It’s sure to be a cracking tour, but the buzz of Madonna’s announcement, which came via a viral star-studded video, soon deflated somewhat as fans looked to resale sites such as StubHub in the hope of nabbing a ticket, only to find some being sold for up to £5,000.

One person even compared getting a ticket to ‘the Olympics’ as tickets on the official site were sold out in minutes. 

So if you’re hoping to bag a London ticket on February 1, best get your game face on sharpish.
