Business Wire article on Tour Sold Outs
NEW YORK – (BUSINESS WIRE) March 30, 2004
The Material Girl‘s star is shining brighter than ever with the news that her upcoming “re-INVENTION Tour” is selling out around the world.
Originally scheduled to perform in 12 major markets in North America with additional stops in Paris and London, the demand for tickets was so high that in New York city after two Madison Square Garden dates sold out in record time, Madonna’s manager, Caresse Henry, and the worldwide tour promoter, Clear Channel Entertainment, added four subsequent performances (June 20, 2l, 23 and 24) which were instant sell outs as well. Demand was so high that an additional New York area performance was confirmed this morning – July 7th at Continental Airlines Arena. Tickets for that event will go on sale Monday, April 5th.
Additional shows have been added in Boston (June 30th) after two sell outs at the Worcester Centrum. A fourth show has been announced in Chicago (July 15th) after three sell outs as well as more shows currently being added in Fort Lauderdale (July 29th) and Miami (August 2nd) after those markets went clean in record time.
Overseas, Madonna’s two London shows at Earl’s Court (August 18 and 19) sold out in 90 minutes leading to the confirmation of a 3rd London performance at Wembley Arena on August 22nd. Her scheduled Paris show (Sept. 1) is going on sale March 31st and is expected to sell out as well.
Madonna is both a multi-Grammy Award winner and a multi-MTV Award winner and has sold well over 250 million albums during the span of her extraordinary two-decade career. In addition, she has had more Top Ten Singles than any female artist in history – second only to Elvis Presley.
