Yippee (it's really taking shape kids...I'll get to wear my MadonnaSummer t-shirt again)Tour dates have yet to be announced, but rehearsals begin March 1.
According to Jaime King... who was the creative director for Madonna’s last two tours. "Being that [Confessions on a Dance Floor] is an intimate album...To achieve that intimacy, Madonna will have to be able to get close to everyone, so the tour is also going to be more interactive. "I would like to put her as close to her people — her fans, her dancers, her fellow supporters — as possible," King said. While that effect was achieved via the pit and the catwalk on her Reinvention Tour, don’t expect Madonna to merely reinvent that tour and trot out all the hits. The set list has been confirmed, King said, and it’s definitely Confessions-heavy, with "some familiar faces" popping up from the past two dance-themed videos, "Hung Up" and "Sorry." That said, there will be a few yet-to-be-revealed fan favorites on the set list as well, but expect a lot of the songs from Confessions on a Dance Floor."
