On Tuesday, Jan. 17, Madonna — who was raised in Pontiac and Auburn Hills, now Rochester Hills, and graduated from Rochester Adams High School before attending the University of Michigan — announced her much-anticipated global tour, “Madonna: The Celebration Tour.” It’s making a stop at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on Aug. 5.

The announcement was made via a viral video that paid ode to her 1991 film, Truth or Dare, a documentary on her controversial “Blonde Ambition” international tour.

The video features a wide variety of celebrities including Lil’ Wayne, Diplo, and Eric Andre. It ends with comedian and actress Amy Schumer daring the star to go on tour and Madonna accepting the challenge with this announcement.

“Madonna: The Celebration Tour” kicks off on July 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC, and will make stops in 35 cities around the world. It will feature some of her most iconic mega hits across her 40-year career while also paying respect to New York, which is where her music career began.

“I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for,” Madonna said in a press release about the announcement.

Tickets for the show, which is produced by Live Nation, will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 27 at,, and

Since Citi is the official card of the tour, Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets Jan. 24-26. VIP packages that may include premium tickets, behind-the-scenes access, a group photo on stage, pre-show reception, and more are also available.
