Madonna's intimate Madame X theater tour has ticket prices ranging from $53 to $2,000.
Madonna fans were rumbling on social media this week over the high ticket prices for the “Medellín” singer’s Madame X tour kicking off in September. Ticket prices for her theater dates ranged from just over $50 to get in the door and reached $750 for orchestra seats, tapping out at $1,7500 to $2,000 for VIP seats/experiences.
The Queen of Pop’s latest installment of tour dates are in support of her upcoming album, also called Madame X, due out June 14 on Interscope Records. The multi-city tour brings the global superstar to some of the smallest venues she has played in decades, launching with 12 nights at the 2,100-capacity BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in New York then moving to the 3,600-seat Chicago Theatre followed by a nine-night stand at the roughly 2,000-capacity Wiltern theater in Los Angeles.
The theater shows are a departure from the grandeur that fans have experienced in the past. Madonna has been selling out arenas and stadiums since her 1987 Who’s That Girl tour, and the pop icon holds the record for highest-grossing tour for a female artist with her 2008-2009 Sticky & Sweet tour.
