by Patria

Last night, cultural trailblazer Madonna arrived at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center after conquering the UK and Europe with her critically acclaimed, sold-out The Celebration Tour. She continues the celebration that has fans and critics raving with a sold-out performance to over 14,000 fans. Madonna took the audience on an unforgettable autobiographical journey through some of her greatest hits from the past forty years, including songs she has not performed on stage in decades, in a rare reflection that honors her unparalleled legacy and extraordinary artistry.

With iconic archival footage and poignant references to her beginnings as a struggling New York City artist, the emotional loss of her closest friends to AIDS, meteoric success, personal and professional lows and spiritual awakening. The show captures Madonna’s whirlwind past, her continuing impact on the culture, and looks to the future. As Madonna has said, “The most controversial thing I’ve ever done is to stay. Directed for the stage by longtime collaborator Jamie King with music production by Stuart Price, the songs include anthems “Like a Prayer,” “Ray of Light,” “La Isla Bonita,” “Hung Up,” “Vogue” and, for the first time on this tour, her hometown favorite “I Love New York.

Known for her groundbreaking tours, the Celebration Tour is no different. As always, the best-selling female artist of all time has left no detail untouched. Dynamic choreography and dramatic costumes, including designs by Jean Paul Gaultier, Donatella Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Rosamosario, Vetements and Dilara Findikoglu, make for a fearless, thought-provoking performance. Designed by Stufish and inspired by the New York City grid, the tour features Madonna’s largest and most elaborate stage to date.

Madonna’s mammoth 79-date, Live Nation-directed tour crisscrossed Europe before landing in Madonna’s adopted home of New York City last night. The celebration will continue across the U.S. and Canada through the spring of 2024, with a 5-date run in Mexico City next April as the culmination of the tour.
