Madonna announced the US leg of her “Madame X Tour,” set to bring the Queen of Pop to a handful of smaller venues across the country this fall.
The 16-day jaunt kicks off September 12 at the BAM Howard Gillman Opera House in NYC, where she’ll play a number of shows followed by a residency at the Chicago Theatre in October. From there, Madonna will head for the west coast, closing out the US leg of “Madame X” with a series of shows at The Wiltern in Los Angeles.
According to a press release, Madge is also expected to hit the stage in cities including Las Vegas, Boston, Philadelphia, and Miami later this year.
News of the tour comes after a busy week for the music icon, who performed at the Billboard Music Awards May 1, and made headlines after giving an emotional acceptance speech while receiving the GLAAD Media Award’s Advocate for Change Award Saturday night.
The “Madame X Tour” will be in support of Madonna’s highly anticipated 14th studio album of the same name, featuring collaborations with the likes of Maluma, Guavo, Swae Lee, and Anitta. Madame X is due for release on June 14.
