Chill Out, Fans: Madonna’s Madame X Tour Isn’t in Doubt

<i>Billboard</i> has shot down reports that tickets for Madonna’s upcoming tour are not selling. The rumors started on Tuesday, after it was revealed there were about 3,000 tickets available to one of her 17 shows at Brooklyn’s Howard Gilman Opera House. Additionally, her shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Miami were showing comparable sales. However, insiders say those numbers are normal–and that Madonna sold 31,000 tickets during the presale for her 17 New York shows. Arthur Fogel, chairman of global music and president of global touring at Live Nation, adds that they started with seven shows for Madonna in Brooklyn, but added five more because of the demand. They’ve since added another five to get to 17. “I’m adding shows because it’s a flop?” he jokingly asks. “Is that some kind of new business model that I’m not familiar with?”
