Is Madonna pushing her fans over the budget line?
The Material Girl‘s summer “re-Invention” tour will be her most expensive show ever, with tickets costing up to $300 each.
“Madonna is charging $300 for the top seats and $175 for so-so seats,” says our snitch. “There are a couple of hundred that are cheaper, but more than 60% of the arena is at insanely expensive prices.”
And the payoff?
“Madonna is netting a cool $100 million for three months of concert dates,” says the source, adding the total will come from tickets, merchandise and a TV special of the tour.
However, word is that Mrs. Guy Ritchie will be giving fans their money’s worth.
Says our spy: “Madonna is working like she never has before. She is doing several greatest hits, and she has been rehearsing with dancers for up to 18 hours a day to make this her best show yet.”
The tour comes to Madison Square Garden on June 16-17.
Madonna‘s rep, Liz Rosenberg, told us: “The tickets are scaled from $300 to $90. This is pretty much in line with other major superstar shows.”
Rosenberg added that the clothes in the show will be provided by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, and Christian LaCroix.
