Madonna fans have hit out at the cost of the tickets for her upcoming Celebration tour, which cost anywhere between £143 and £436.
The pop icon announced her greatest hits tour earlier this week and the pre-sale this morning had thousands of her loyal fans in virtual queues for tickets.
But once people made it through to booking tickets, they say they were ‘in shock’ at the price, The Manc reports.
Tickets for Madonna’s only UK gig this year are priced up to £436.85, with the cheapest tickets currently in the O2 Priority pre-sale coming in at £143.85.
Her show at the O2 in London is set to take place on 14 October, before she heads around 10 more European cities.
One person wrote: “Shame on @Madonna for her ridiculously expensive ticket prices. Another example of an artist who treats her lifelong fans like absolute garbage.”
Another said: “I honestly thinks Madonna’s ticket prices are unjustified and downright disgusting. In these times too? Filler must of gone to her head.”
Similarly, someone wrote: “Looking at the price of Madonna tour tickets during a cost of living crisis and now I have a migraine.”
Someone else commented: “Madonna tickets. Level 4B – the cheapest option at £143.85, it’s up in the gods FYI.”
One person tweeted: “Madonna has lost the plot with these prices.”
Although a few people were celebrating after being able to bag one of the handful of £40 tickets, which are positioned right at the back of the huge venue.
Announcing the Celebration tour yesterday, Madonna said: “I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for.”
The Celebration Tour will take audiences on a journey through the star’s phenomenal four-decade-long music career.
She’ll be joined on stage by Bob the Drag Queen a.k.a. Caldwell Tidicue across all dates.
But despite all the public backlash, pre-sale tickets still sold out… so it doesn’t look like Madge will be bringing those prices down any time soon.
