“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.
