Few artists can command the stage like Madonna, those who have seen her in concert can attest to the fact that the Queen of Pop rules the world. The Material Girl has gone beyond superstardom and has become an icon of reinvention. Every concert is a testament to the fact that Madonna cannot be tamed; it is ingrained in her nature to surprise and shock. The past 30 years have done nothing to mellow the pure riveting energy that is Madonna, and that is why fans across all ages flock to her concerts.
The top-selling female recording artist of all time has produced music that pushed the boundaries of pop to new levels and inflamed controversies beyond the musical realm. Since her debut in 1982, her songs have been about going against the flow and maintaining uniqueness in a mainstream genre. Second only to The Beatles on the 100 All-Time Top Artists released by The Billboard, Madonna has 64 million certified albums sold worldwide. With 12 albums under her belt, as well as other recordings and live performances, Madonna’s music has spanned generations and is often viewed as a transition of styles. Her music appeals to all ages and her lyrics are a tribute to her beliefs and experiences. From the release of her hit debut single in the 80’s, Madonna had everyone dancing to her “Everybody” song. Her looks and unapologetic attitude caught the attention of the crowd, and she soon released more hits like “Lucky Star”, “Holiday”, and “Borderline”. The Virgin Tour marked Madonna’s first concert serried in North America where she performed more of her classics like “Crazy For You”, “Like A Virgin”, and the unforgettable “Material Girl”.
Since she was discovered while playing with her band “Emmy”, Madonna started performing in small clubs during the beginning of her career. Her first concert tour consisted of venues like Mudd Club, CBGB, small theaters, and sporting arenas. By the time Madonna released her third album “True Blue”, she was already on her way to conquering the global scene. The “Who’s That Girl World Tour” in 1987 took the globe by storm. “La Isla Bonita”, “Live To Tell” and “Papa Don’t Preach” ruled the charts in different countries. She continued her ascent to the throne with the release of “Like A Prayer”, a song and album made infamous with its graphic religious issues. Madonna was hailed as the Artist of the Decade by the beginning of the 1990s. Her perfect career spawned more hit concerts such as the unforgettable “Blond Ambition World Tour”, “The Girlie Show World Tour”, “Drowned World Tour”, and “Re-Invention World Tour”. In 2005, her song “Hung Up” reached the number one slot in 41 countries all over the world and placed here in the Guinness Book of World Records. Madonna then embarked on her “Confessions Tour”, and before the end of the year, it was reported that she has sold over 200 million albums all throughout the world. The best was yet to come for the blond superstar with the most ambition, as her 2008 “Sticky & Sweet Tour” broke concert records and became the highest-grossing solo tour by any artist. Madonna’s number one singles include “Frozen”, “Vogue”, and “Music”.
