“You’re here with me, it’s like a dream. Let the choir sing!”
Madonna’s upcoming opening act is, surprisingly, Amy Schumer.
The comedian tweeted Thursday that she will open for the pop legend on the New York City stops of the Rebel Heart tour: Madison Square Garden on Sept. 16 and 17, as well as Barclays Center on Sept. 19. It will be the first time Schumer performs at Madison Square Garden.
The singer’s choice to open with a stand-up comedy act is an offbeat one, possibly targeting a younger demographic to widen Madonna’s reach. No word yet on how much music, if any, will be incorporated into Schumer’s set.
