Madonna is back! The rumors were insistent these last few days, but this time, It's real, Madonna is about to embark on a new world tour to celebrate 40 years of her singing career. Named "The Celebration Tour",  Madonna posted a picture on Instagram with her name in the middle and "Four Decades" to let us know that she will be singing her most famous songs during this tour.

Her last tour back in 2019, called Madame X, was just before Covid, but it was in small theaters, something more intimate. However this time, it seems like she wants to make something big, something in arenas, stadiums, she wants the whole world to remember this as her ultimate tour. But let's go back to the last weeks of teasing first, which have been intense for the fans.

Madonna wipes her Instagram

The most recent teasing, which happened 24 hours ago, was when she decided to delete every picture on her instagram. You know what this means when an artist does that type of thing. When a famous personality like her wipes off her Instagram, it only means there's a big announcement incoming.

The real fans even knew at what time she was about to post on Instagram to announce the event. And guess what... They were wrong! By one hour, nothing dramatic. People thought it would be posted at 10 A.M Est time, but it was announced at 9 A.M Est time. However, hints about this tour were revealed way before this Instagram wipe.

Back in June 2022, Madonna asked a question on her Instagram story: "Movie about my life? Or a world tour?" and the fans answered mostly "A world tour". In October 2022, we can see her in pictures with Jamie King, her director of creation, where she seems to work on a sketch and a model of a scene. A few weeks ago, one of her dancers, Kaelynn Harris, says she is now Assistant Choreographer for Madonna's Tour. All of this info practically confirmed this was happening.

A visual and a video

Between two times the same visual, Madonna also posted a video that is exactly in her vibe. Here it is:

In this video, she is surrounded by many famous friends such as Jack Black, Lil Wayne, and Amy Schumer. She wants Amy to play the "truth or dare" game. Madonna asks for something silly, then Amy answers in return: "I dare you to do a world tour with your greatest hits". Then the people around the table and Madonna start singing, but in the end, she still hesitates.

She wonders if people would come to a tour in 2023 where she sings her new but also old songs. Most of the stars in the room say that they would go, of course. So in the end, she says the answer is yes, she will do it. She ends up with this speech: "80s, 90, 2000s, 2010s, four decades of me".
