For every fat, drunk American football fan who couldn't even sit (or, uh, dance) through Madonna's 12-minute Super Bowl XLVI halftime bonanza, there are millions of giddy pop music fans in party towns like Istanbul, Zagreb, Warsaw, Kansas City, and St. Paul who'd be totally willing to blow their entire bank load just to spend two hours singing along to "Give Me All Your Luvin'" while getting middle-fingered "Like a Virgin" by the "Material Girl."

Well, good news for them ... The Sticky & Sweet 53 year old has announced her 2012 World Tour. Or as the "Official Press Release" says, "Madonna is having a huge party and everyone's invited."

This superinclusive, 52-show "Holiday" will kick off at Tel Aviv's Ramat Gam Stadium on May 29 before getting "Into the Groove" and "Causing a Commotion" in 25 other so-called European cities, including Abu Dhabi, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, London, and Moscow.

Then in late August, Ms. MDNA will skip across the Atlantic for some "Hanky Panky," "American Pie," and "Music" in 26 spots like Philly, Boston, New York City, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, New Orleans, and Atlanta.

There's even a show skedded for Miami. But "Sorry," there's still no date or venue. It's apparently a "Secret."

UPDATE The "Secret" has been revealed! Madonna's coming to the American Airlines Arena on November 19.

UPDATE Madonna's Miami show has sold out. But she's added a second concert at the AAA on November 20.
