MADONNA this evening the first of the two Italian concerts in Milan (Info and Schedule)

Music news

Today is the big day: MADONNA returns live to Milan with the first of her two Italian concerts of her “The Celebration Tour”.

The undisputed Queen of pop returns to Italy after 8 years of absence. The show, sold out for some time, will be a big party that celebrates and retraces the pop star’s 40-year career.

Madonna had to move the start of the tour to June after being in hospital for many days due to an infection.


The show, based on the concerts of the last few days around Europe, is developed in six acts.
Each act has its own visual and sound conceptuality.

Here is the setlist staged in his Paris date a few days ago which presumably will also be the one he will sing in Milan.
