“There is some­thing re­mark­able about Madonna’s de­ci­sion to share her suf­fer­ing the way she has once shared her plea­sure,” wrote the Chicago Tri­bune. “Her mu­sic has al­ways been about lib­er­a­tion and op­pres­sion — but for the first time the op­pres­sion is in­ter­nal: loss and sad­ness.”

Hot on the heels of a record-set­ting Su­per Bowl half­time show last month, Madonna is set to hop­scotch around the globe in sup­port of her new al­bum, in her most am­bi­tious world tour ever.

The tour — Madonna’s first since her wildly suc­cess­ful “Sticky and Sweet” out­ing in 2008 and 2009 — kicks off on May 29 in Tel Aviv.

She will go on to per­form in Abu Dhabi and Is­tan­bul, be­fore a 22-city swing through Europe start­ing in June and a 26-city North Amer­i­can leg be­gin­ning in Au­gust.
