It’s official, the legendary queen of pop herself is returning to Australia for the first time in 23 years. But be prepared to fork out the cash if you’re going to see her live.
Madonna is bringing her Rebel Heart Tour to Australia in March next year. It’s been a long wait — the last time she was here was during her 1993 Girlie Show: Live Down Under tour.
Since then, the songstress has become one of the biggest touring solo acts in music history and has embarked on five more world tours, all of which bypassed Australia.
Here’s a flashback for all of you who may not remember the 1993 tour.
This arena tour has been the most expensive of the year overseas, with the average price of tickets coming in around $452.33.
That’s significantly more expensive than Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour at $305.21 and Fleetwood Mac’s On With The Show Tour at an average price of $298.82.
But knowing Madonna’s loyal and patient Aussie followers, it looks like they’ll be willing to pay the price.
And for those cashed up fans keen enough to spend $1,500 on VIP packages, fans can snatch front row seats and access to a pre-show party.

The demand for Madonna tickets is not surprising, considering her past two tours finished among the top 12 highest grossing tours of all-time.
Her 2008 Sticky & Sweet tour grossed $408 million, third most all-time, while 2012′s MDNA grossed over $305 million.
For those die hard Brisbane Madonna fans out there, Citi Cardholder pre-sale bookings of the Rebel Hear Tour tickets start on Wednesday at 10am and tickets will officially go on sale Monday July 6.
Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour is expected to arrive in Brisbane on 26 March 2016.
