About 6 hours ago DrownedMadonna.com received an interesting email from an unconfirmed insider. Apparently the itinerary of Madonna's next tour will be revealed at a press conference to be held on Monday, October 31st. What we have been sent is also a likely first tour itinerary draft.
According to the anonymous source, Live Nation is still negotiating with China. The source says Chinese authorities want to know what songs Madonna will perform and have also sent a list of songs Madonna is not allowed to sing in China. Among them "Material Girl" and "Erotica." Madonna would really like to perform in China.
If the first itinerary draft - which is shown below - is genuine, the tour would start in New Zeland on March 31, 2012. Next it would stop in Australia, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, UAE and Israel. Besides China, apparently there are also negotiations for the Philippines and Taiwan. The next leg would move to Europe and then to North America. Also note that according to this unconfirmed itinerary draft, Europe this time has both arenas and stadiums, the USA is all stadiums (the opposite of "Sticky and Sweet").
Finally, the anonymous source told us that there will be more shows announced at the beginning 2012, apparently in Latin America. It was said Madonna would also like to visit South Africa around October 2012.
We really cannot confirm or deny this itinerary draft at this point. We can only say that it contrasts with what we originally heard some months ago: a June start for the tour, with rehearsals in March. Anyway, after a few hours of debate, we decided to share it with all Madonna's fans. We leave it up to you to decide.
