Madonna has announced her 40th-anniversary tour, the Celebration tour, which will feature shows in stadiums and arenas across North America and Europe - here's what we know so far...

Madonna announced this morning via a truly iconic YouTube video that she'll be hosting the Celebration tour, which will feature all of the pop icon's hits from the '80s through the 2000s. So yes, over four (!!!) decades of music from the queen herself that you can see live and in person.

In true Madonna boundary-pushing fashion (she recently flashed a thong on TikTok), the legendary singer didn't just announce this tour with a simple tweet or Instagram post; in a wink to her film, Truth or Dare, she announced the tour through a short film featuring the likes of Amy Schumer, Jack Black, Lil Wayne and other A-List celebs. In the video, Amy dares Madonna to go on tour and perform four decades' worth of her biggest hits - and of course, the pop sensation obliges.

Madonna, who is known for her global chart-toppers like "Like a Prayer," "Material Girl," "Holiday," and the seminal hit, "Vogue," toured her album Madame X in 2019 and early 2020, but those shows were only held in theaters - so this will be the artist's first stadium tour in quite some time.

And we anticipate it'll be quite a spectacle, seeing as in the past, she's made quite a stir with her outfits, choreography, and her behavior in general (think: cheeky bum flashes, wearing pointy bras onstage, etc.)

Everything we know so far about Madonna's Celebration tour

The Celebration tour, produced by Live Nation, will feature shows in over 35 cities globally, kicking off in Vancouver in July 2023 and concluding in Amsterdam in Dec. 2023. She'll make stops in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and other US cities before making her way to Europe, where she'll hit London, Paris, Stockholm, and a handful of other cities on the second leg of her tour.

During the tour, Madonna will be performing over 40 years' worth of her hit songs - and she has quite the catalog of songs to choose from. "I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for," Madonna says in a statement on her site.
