From Britney Spears to Van Halen, the big acts that pack stadiums and arenas are hoping that this year you’ll pay even more to hear them play.
The best seats for Madonna‘s “Re-Invention Tour” are going for more than $300, up $50 from her last tour in 2001.
The last time Madonna hit the concert circuit in 2001, she was criticized in reviews and fan Web sites for neglecting to play her old hits. (The DVD for the tour includes some less well-known newer songs, but not classics like “Borderline” or “Like a Virgin“).
So when this year’s dates were announced, her manager,Caresse Henry, said Madonna “can’t wait to get back on stage to recreate her songs from the earliest days of her career until the present“.
The tour quickly sold out shows from Las Vegas to London.
