Madonna to tour again Down Under
has promised patient Australian fans her next world tour will go Down Under. The superstar’s last two tours (2001’s Drowned World and 2004’s Re-Invention tour) have both bypassed Australia. Her last visit was 12 years ago for 1993’s Girlie tour.
“I had a really great time last time I was in Australia, but I know it was a long time ago,” Madonna said in London yesterday. “It’s just that Australia is so far away and for the last two tours I had to cram everything into my children’s summer vacations. But I really don’t want to pass Australia by next time.”
Madonna, who has sold four million records in Australia and 200 million worldwide, is planning a world tour for 2006, once again around daughter Lola, 9, and four-year-old son Rocco’s schooling.
The club-oriented tour would be “about discotheques and disco balls”, she said, and came on the back of her return-to-dance album Confessions on a Dance Floor, sequenced without gaps between tracks to simulate a DJ set.
The album will be released on November 14. Tour dates are reportedly already locked in for Japan. “If I go to Japan I’ll go to Australia, I promise!” Madonna said.
Meanwhile, Channel 10 is in talks to screen Madonna’s new documentary I’m Gonna Tell You A Secret in Australia later this year. The film discusses Kabbalah and her marriage to film director Guy Ritchie.
