Madonna Reveals Details of MDNA Tour
Tomorrow, Madonna’s 12th studio album, MDNA, hits stores, and a tour, so far, has been scheduled to support the release. With the exception of a handful of dates released earlier, Madge has remained mum about additional details – until yesterday. Jimmy Fallon on Late Night interviewed the “Give Me All Your Luvin’” singer, but Madonna wasn’t on set. Rather, she and Fallon talked through Facebook.
Her upcoming tour, of course, was touched on, in addition to her less-than-traditional promotional approach. For the latter, interviews on television or in magazines haven’t been Madonna’s approach, and instead, most of the information about MDNA has come through the internet. In addressing the tour, Madonna told Fallon her Super Bowl half-time performance won’t be part of it. She explained: "I don't want to repeat myself. I did that already."
Rather, fans should prepare for a multi-act format, the first of which, she revealed, will be called “Transgression.” About this choice, she said: "I like to have a theme for my show and create a dramatic arc. Then I try to make the songs fit within that arc."
Rehearsals for the tour have been intense, with the singer calling them “violent” and saying she’s been covered with bruises.
So, aside from taking an unusual approach for promoting MDNA, why wasn’t Madonna able to make it to the interview? The singer, instead, appeared at the Ultra Music Festival, in Miami, at the opening of Avicii’s set. Closing the evening with an hour-long set, the Swedish producer/DJ began with a remix of Madonna’s recent single “Girls Gone Wild,” and the singer appeared on stage with him. Originally produced by Benny and Ale Benassi, “Girls Gone Wild” got the uncensored video treatment recently, but if you’re curious about Avicii’s take on the track, listen to the start of his set here. How do you like his remix?
