Also produced Material Girl's 2004 tour.
Arthur Fogel, president of TNA International, Live Nation's global touring division, has nailed down the promotion rights for the as-yet-unannounced 2006 tour by Madonna in support of her album "Confessions on the Dancefloor," according to sources.
Fogel, who produced Madonna's ReInvention tour in 2004 and Drowned World tour in 2002, which grossed a combined $200 million, got the nod from Madonna's camp despite what sources say was a concentrated effort from rival promoter AEG Live to promote the tour.
Fogel, who declined to comment, seems to be solidly in place in the Madonna touring business. "Arthur Fogel knows how to make the impossible possible," she was quoted as saying in Billboard last summer. "He's a touring genius."
