Madonna has announced a world tour after giving an acclaimed performance at the Super Bowl in America which was watched by over 114 million people.

The tour supports the forthcoming release of her anticipated new album MDNA.

Her previous Sticky & Sweet Tour affirmed her status as one of the most successful touring artists of all time.

In 2012 she will perform in arenas, stadiums and special outdoor sites around the world.

This epic tour starts in Israel on Tuesday 29 May before moving to Turkey, Croatia, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Germany in June.

In July, she visits Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Ireland and Austria.

She will also play 2 UK dates – in London on 17 July and in Edinburgh on 21 July. For Londoners, this will form part of the build up to the Olympic Games which start later in the month.

In August, she will travel to Poland, Russia, Finland, Norway, Switzerland, France, the US and Canada.

For the following 3 months she will play a range of dates in Canada and across the US visiting cities including New York, Toronto, Chicago, Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta and Miami.

She has sold over 300 million albums including her last CD – Hard Candy – which debuted at Number 1 in 37 countries.

She is a 7 time Grammy winning singer, songwriter and producer and holds the record for the most successful tour by a solo artist in history.

Not only does she give stunning performances which are the stuff of pop legend, but she’s one of the most dedicated and hard-working artists in the business.

This tour is guaranteed to be one of the hottest tickets in the world in 2012.

Fancy a date with Britney?

If you are a regular reader of this blog you’ll know I was rather partial to the Gareth Wyn remix of Britney Spears single Till The World Ends.

This means I’m looking forward to the next single I Wanna Go which is due around 8 August 2011 which “is an upbeat feel-good anthem that will get even the most reluctant movers on the dancefloor.”  That’s what I’ve been told anyway!  Check out the video and see what you think!

It has also got me thinking about seeing Britney live when she comes to the UK on her Femme Fatale tour.

Luckily, she has just announced some new dates:

Friday 28 October – 02 Arena, London
Monday 31 October – Wembley, London
Thursday 3 November – Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle
Saturday 5 November – Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield

Tickets will be going on sale at 09.00 on Friday 1 July 2011.

These dates are in addition to:

Thursday 27 October – 02 Arena, London
Sunday 30 October – LG Arena, Birmingham
Sunday 6 November – Evening News Arena, Manchester

Tickets for which are already on sale via www.livenation.co.uk.

The tour celebrates Britney’s 7th studio album which debuted at number 1 in the US and around the world.

Did you know Britney has sold more than 70m albums worldwide since her debut in 1999?  She has also appeared in the hit TV series Glee and is well known for her thrilling live performances.

Sounds like this might be something not to miss?  Who’s coming?
