Interesting Tour Statistics
Our friend Steve Caraco from The Madonna Catalog is back with interesting tour statistics
Below is a statistic summary of Madonna’s six world tours:
THE VIRGIN TOUR (4-12-85 to 7-13-85): 16 shows in 15 cities over 93 days (13 songs sung)
WHO’S THAT GIRL TOUR (6-14-87 to 8-31-87): 33 shows in 26 cities over 79 days (16 songs sung)
BLOND AMBITION TOUR (4-13-90 to 8-5-90): 57 shows in 27 cities over 115 days (18 songs sung)
THE GIRLIE SHOW (9-25-93 to 12-19-93): 39 shows in 21 cities over 86 days (17 songs sung)
DROWNED WORLD TOUR (6-9-01 to 9-15-01): 47 shows in 17 cities over 99 days (19 songs sung)
RE-INVENTION TOUR (5-24-04 to 9-14-04): 56 shows in 26 cities over 114 days (21 songs sung)
Counting only world tours, Madonna performed a total of 248 shows and was on tour for a total of 586 days.
The Blond Ambition Tour and Re-Invention Tour are virtually identical in schedule. The BAT had one more show, one more city, and one more day than the RIT.
Madonna’s longest-lasting tour was the Blond Ambition Tour, at 115 days. Her shortest was the Who’s That Girl Tour at only 79 days.
Madonna spent only 8 DAYS in the USA for the Girlie Show, performing in only THREE different U.S. cities (New York, Philadelphia, and Detroit) – disappointing many fans.
The longest gap between tours was between the Girlie Show and Drowned World Tour (2730 days or about 7-1/2 years).
The shortest gap between tours was between the Virgin Tour and Who’s That Girl Tour (702 days or a little less than 2 years)
A total of 7,096 days (about 19-1/2 years) have lapsed between the first show of her Virgin Tour, and the last show of her Re-Invention Tour.
Counting only songs she actually sung live on stage, she has sung a total of 4,494 songs during her world tours. That means she sang “Holiday” 248 times!
It is uncertain whether Madonna will ever do another world tour. Fans can only hope at this point.
