Madonna is skipping her home town on her upcoming world tour.
Although the Bay City-born Rochester Adams High School graduate did play a November 2008 show at Ford Field during her Sticky & Sweet Tour, there is no Detroit area date on Madonna's just-announced road trek in support of her forthcoming new album "MDNA." The closest she comes is Toronto on Sept. 12, Chicago on Sept. 19 and Cleveland on Nov. 10. There is a seven-day break between the latter show and a Nov. 3 stop in St. Paul, Minn., but it's unclear if Madonna plans to fill that gap with some additional shows.
The MDNA Tour begins May 29 in Tel Aviv and moves to Europe until Aug. 21. The North American leg kicks off Aug. 28 in Philadelphia and is slated to wrap shortly before Thanksgiving with a Miami show whose date has yet to be announced. An Australian leg will take place during early 2013, and Madonna is expected to play nearly 90 shows by the time the tour is over.
The Sticky & Sweet Tour grossed $408 million during 2008-2009, the highest take ever by a solo artist and third biggest tour of all time.
The "MDNA" album is due out March 26. Madonna's halftime performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 5, in Indianapolis vaulted the album to No. 1 on iTunes in 51 countries, including the U.S., on pre-orders.
