Live from Down Under?
Sidney’s Daily Telegraph voices worries and disappointments of the Autralian fans in a report posted yesterday, saying that “Madonna expects her Australian fans to spend thousands of dollars in airfares and concert tickets to see her perform overseas as she again refused to tour Down Under”.
“She has ignored the loyalty of Aussies who propelled her new album Hard Candy and single 4 Minutes to No. 1 on the ARIA charts this week, with her representatives saying she will not be playing Australia on her Sticky & Sweet tour” – the newspaper says.
According to the newspaper’s sources, “the tour has been taken off the table” – no matter if all major Australian promoters were believed to be pitching for Madonna’s first concerts here since her one-and-only tour in 1993.
“It is believed her agents were offered millions of dollars for the Material Girl to play two stadium concerts in Sydney and Melbourne” – the Daily Telegraph also says.
In the press release for the Sticky & Sweet Tour – which starts in Wales on August 23 – it was stated that additional dates and venues are to be announced and that the tour will stop in Mexico and South America later this year, but there’s still no official word about Australia.
