Demand for Madonna’s UK gigs is ”phenomenal”
Five further Wembley Arena shows have been added to Madonna’s Confessions Tour after the first dates sold out in under an hour this morning.
The tickets went on sale at 9am, and the performances scheduled for August 1 and 3 were snapped up in around 50 minutes. Not bad going when you consider that Wembley Arena can pack in 10,000 fans for each night and prices range from £80 to a whopping £160 for a ticket. Five further dates were then announced for August 9, 10, 12, 13 and 15.
Madge will also head to Cardiff for a single date at the 60,000-capacity Millennium Stadium on July 30, but tickets will not go on sale until April 21.

Tickets for Madonna’s UK leg of her Confessions Tour sold out today in just 10 minutes.
Fans snapped up every ticket for the first two Wembley Arena gigs as soon as the box office opened at 9am.
A further four Wembley dates were swiftly added – and all had sold out by lunchtime.
Now a seventh gig has been added for August 15.
Demand for the tour has been phenomenal despite the cheapest tickets costing £80, with a top price of £160.
So far only the Wembley dates have been made available. Tickets for the gig at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on July 30 go on sale later this month.
