Madonna The Celebration Tour opens in the US with sold-out first show in Brooklyn

Written by on December 15, 2023

Last night, after conquering the UK and Europe with her universally praised, sold-out The Celebration Tour, cultural trailblazer Madonna arrived at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Performing to a sold-out crowd of over 14,000 fans she continues the celebration that has both fans and critics raving. In a rare reflection that honors her unmatched legacy and exceptional artistry, Madonna took the audience on an unforgettable autobiographical journey through some of her biggest hits over the last forty years, including songs she has not performed on stage in decades.

Featuring iconic archival footage and poignant nods to her beginnings as a struggling artist living in New York City, the emotional loss of her closest friends to AIDS, her meteoric success, through personal and professional lows to her spiritual awakening. The show captures Madonna’s whirlwind past, her ongoing impact on culture while looking to the future. As Madonna has stated, “the most controversial thing I’ve ever done is to stick around.” Directed for the stage by long-time collaborator Jamie King with the music production by Stuart Price; songs included anthems “Like a Prayer,” “Ray of Light,” “La Isla Bonita,” “Hung Up “Vogue” and for the first time on this tour for her hometown “I Love New York.”

Known for her ground-breaking tours; The Celebration Tour is no different. As usual, the best-selling female artist of all time left no detail overlooked. This fearless, thought-provoking performance features dynamic choreography, high drama costumes including designs by Jean Paul Gaultier, Donatella Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Rosamosario, Vetements and Dilara Findikoglu. Designed by Stufish and inspired by the New York City grid, the tour showcases Madonna’s biggest and most elaborate stage to date.

The colossal 79 date tour, produced by Live Nation, moved across Europe before landing last night in Madonna’s adopted hometown of New York City. The celebration will continue across the US and Canada throughout spring of 2024; concluding with 5 shows in Mexico City next April. Full routing for the U.S. and Mexico can be found below.
