The Material Mom's "Confessions Tour" kicks off next month in L.A.


Don’t expect Madonna to be a homebody this summer. The Material Mom is setting sail on a world “Confessions Tour,” she announced Monday.

“I’m going to turn the world into one big dance floor,” Madonna, 47, said in a statement.

This tour, in support of her 2005 album Confessions on a Dance Floor, will mark Madonna’s first since the “Re-Invention Tour” of two years ago.

The confessions will kick off May 21 in Los Angeles, and then head east through Las Vegas, Phoenix, Chicago, Montreal, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami and Atlantic City before landing in Europe for a July 30 gig in Cardiff, Wales, and continuing through London, Rome and Paris.

From there additional dates will be added for concerts in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan.

As was previously announced, Madonna will make her first festival performance April 30, at California’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
