UPDATE 5 p.m. September 17: Due to high demand, Madonna has added two more shows to her Madame X Fillmore Miami Beach residency shows. The additional dates will take place Saturday, December 21 and Sunday, December 22. Tickets for both shows go on sale Monday, September 23 at 10 a.m. with fan presales beginning Wednesday, September 18 at 10 a.m.
The Material Girl is returning to Miami.
Yesterday, Madonna announced her Madame X tour, a series of short residencies in major cities across the United States as well as London and Paris. Kicking off in New York City, the tour will run through Chicago and Los Angeles before moving on to the rest of the world — including the Fillmore Miami Beach.
This isn't an average tour for the pop music superstar. Rather than headlining giant arenas, Madge has opted to perform multiple shows in smaller venues, offering audiences "rare and intimate performances to take place exclusively in theaters, giving fans an opportunity to see Madonna in an environment like they never have before," a press release from the artist describes.
Madonna's Miami shows will run December 14-19. Ticket requests are being accepted at madonna.livenation.com. Tickets cost between $60 and $760.
Madonna's last major tour to hit Miami was 2016's Rebel Heart, which staged back-to-back shows at American Airlines Arena. Both sold out.
The new tour takes its name, Madame X, from Madonna's upcoming 15-track album, scheduled for release June 14. The artist has already released two of its songs: "Medellin," featuring Colombian singer Maluma, and "I Rise," a ballad that samples Parkland activist Emma Gonzalez's iconic "We call B.S.!" speech. Three more tracks are due for release before the album's mid-June drop: "Crave," featuring Swae Lee and produced by Mike Dean (May 10); "Future," featuring Quavo (May 17); and "Dark Ballet" (June 7).
