With a New Tour, Madonna Shows She Will Never Go Gently

Madonna has once again infiltrated the pop culturesphere. The 64-year-old singer announced her 12th world tour — a spin across 40 cities and through four decades of hits entitled “Celebration” — via a five-minute black and white video that shows her hosting a dinner party with an assortment of famous friends that was as attention-demanding as you might expect.

She is resplendent in Heidi braids and Jocelyn Wildenstein face, body winched into a corset, shorts, fishnets and zip-up jacket as she and Jack Black, Lil Wayne, Judd Apatow and Amy Schumer, among other guests, play “Truth or Dare” (get it?), mime “Sex” (get it?), sing along to “La Isla Bonita,” and otherwise offer a brief referential whirl through onetime shocking Madonna moments before the big reveal.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Life on tour with Madonna was exhilarating and exhausting… I couldn’t keep up’

As cameras flashed and schoolgirls lining the airport’s arrivals lounge screamed and jumped up and down with joy, Donna De Lory’s jaw dropped at the cacophony of noise.

It was 1987, and Madonna had hand-picked the 21-year-old performer to join her on her Who’s That Girl tour – her first stadium tour – to be her backing singer and dancer. It was a decision that would change Donna’s life forever.

A Dream Setlist for Madonna’s ‘Celebration Tour,’ From Staple Songs to Slept-On Hits

When Madonna revealed dates for “Madonna: The Celebration Tour,” a career-spanning live extravaganza, the speculation surrounding the setlist led the conversation. While the Queen of Pop is tightlipped about specifics, a couple of tidbits can be gleaned from the star-studded tour announcement.

In a video that pays tribute to her 1990 documentary “Truth or Dare,” the social media-savvy singer plays the titular game with superstars ranging from Jack Black to Lil Wayne. Eventually, Amy Schumer dares Madonna to embark on a world tour and perform her “greatest motherfuckin’ hits.”

This is where it gets really interesting for fans. Madonna throws around song titles such as “Like a Virgin” (initially in faux protest), while her guests suggest “Open Your Heart” and “La Isla Bonita.” It doesn’t take much to twist the enduring hitmaker’s arm and she celebrates the newly announced tour while “Vogue” blasts in the background. Assuming those four songs make the cut, that still leaves dozens of potential classics to play around with.
