Madonna adds ‘adults only’ Singapore show to her ‘Rebel Heart’ world tour


Singapore fans are rejoicing at the news that Madonna will be bringing her Rebel Heart Tour 2016 to Singapore for the first time on Feb 28.




The Singapore leg of pop superstar Madonna’s global Rebel Heart Tour has been restricted to fans aged 18 and above, the concert’s local coordinator said Wednesday. The one-night-only event on February 28, Madonna’s first-ever concert in the city-state, will be held at the 55,000-seat National Stadium, entertainment firm MediaCorp Vizpro said.


Younger fans are in for disappointment though as the racy show, which has featured scantily clad nuns dancing on cross-shaped stripper poles, has been deemed too explicit for younger audiences. The show has been rated R 18+, meaning fans under the age of 18 will not be permitted into Madonna’s performance say local coordinators. The move further reinforces Singapore’s  for strict social control and it’s conservative reputation in the region.


Tickets will go on public sale at 10am on Jan 12 and can be bought online via Sports Hub or through their hotline. They will also be sold on site at the National Stadium Box Office and all SingPost Outlets. Lifetime Legacy members of Icon, Madonna’s official fan club, will receive first access to tickets and VIP Packages starting Thursday, Jan 7 at 10am through Friday, Jan 8 at 5pm.


In addition, Citi card members will have access to a pre-sale opportunity in Singapore beginning Jan 9 at 10am to Jan 10, 5pm. OCBC card members will also have access to a pre-sale beginning Jan 11 at 10am to 5pm.


The concert will be produced by Live Nation Global Touring in association with East West Best.
