Like a Virgin no more – Taiwan’s about to lose its Madonna concert cherry.
Live Nation Taiwan has just announced the American singer-songwriter will be performing her first ever Taiwan concert on Thursday February 4, 2016 as part of her Rebel Heart tour.
The concert will be appropriately held at Taipei Arena, the only venue fit for the Queen of Pop.
Due to popular demand, Live Nation Taiwan on September 29 announced that Madonna will be adding a second show in Taipei.
The second concert will be held on Saturday February 6, 2016, which is the eve of Lunar New Year’s eve.
Tickets for the second concert will be sold in three stages, with a fan-club pre-sale from 10 am October 1 to 5 pm October 2 and a Citi pre-sale from 10 am October 5 to 5 pm October 7 before tickets are available to the general public on October 10 at 11 am.
The news is not entirely unexpected; word had been floating around of a possible Madonna concert for some time now.
Released to predominately positive reviews, Rebel Heart is Madonna’s thirteenth album. Its lead singles include “Living for Love”, “Ghosttown” and “Bitch, I’m Madonna”, the last of which featured a music video rivalling in star power Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”. Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora, Nicki Minaj and Diplo make appearances.
Known for countless classic hits from “Material Girl” to “Like A Prayer”, Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the best-selling female recording artist of all time.
She is noted for using MTV and music videos to establish her popularity and enhance her recorded work.
