Earlier this month, Madonna announced that she will be bringing her Madame X tour to the Met Philly for multiple dates, and doing the same in theaters in a select number of cities.
Now we know when.
Madge will start her Met residency on Pearl Harbor Day — that’s December 7, and also play the restored North Broad Street opera house on December 8 and 11.
The Philadelphia shows are the penultimate dates on the Madame X tour. Which ends with five shows in Miami later in December. The tour kicks off with a staggering 17 show run at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn on September 12.
Ticket availability works like this: Starting now, fans can request tickets at madonna.livenation.com for the Philadelphia show through Friday, May 24 at noon. All tickets will be confirmed by Sunday June 2. You get a copy of the Madame X album, which is due June 14, with your purchase. Tickets range from $60 to $760. There’s also will be a lottery for $10 tickets at Madonna.com.

At the Billboard Music Awards earlier this month, Madonna performed “Medellin” with Colombian singer Maluma. If her performance there is any indication, the Madame X tour holds, it could involve seeing Madonna both in the flesh and hologram form. She danced with several different iteration of herself at the BBMAs.
The Madame X album and tour is said to be influenced by Madonna living in in Lisbon, Portugal — where she’ll play in January — for long stretches in recent years, so expect the sound and the intimate vibe to be shaped somewhat be the Portuguese soul music know as fado.
