    It's a great song: strident and slightly pugnacious like Nobody Knows Me, but with a much better chorus and dreamy guitar episode I won't object to if she plays it herself (although clearly it's a STRUTTING number).
    Everyone always asks the question "did they do that digitally or was that really you three times?" No it was me three times.

    IT's no Nobody Knows Me but if the tour performance can transform the song like the Reinvention perf did for that song then it could be quite SPECIAL. I do think it's a great track anyway but the production does drown it out somewhat.
    kyoko, it's me

    Ongoing chatter that the Madonna tour, and by extension her multi-rights deal with Live Nation, are underperforming is "baseless," according to sales figures provided by tour producer Arthur Fogel, chairman of Live Nation Global Touring.

    The precipitous drop of MDNA in its second week, while certainly not something an artist would want (though the nature of the beast when pricing strategies are geared toward impressive first-week sales), actually has little to do with the performance of Live Nation's 10-year, $120 million multi-rights deal with Madonna. The days of tours supporting records are long gone; for some time now, touring drives record sales, not the reverse, and the Madonna touring business is more than solid.

    Madonna Announces 2012 World Tour Dates -- Her Biggest Tour Yet

    As for the multi-rights deal, while MDNA is the first album under the 360, the upcoming trek is not the first tour. That would be "Sticky and Sweet" of 2008-2009, which grossed $408 million, according to Billboard Boxscore, the third-highest gross all-time and the highest ever notched by a solo artist. Merchandising is also a component of this tour and in Madonna's case is a significant revenue producer. Finally, given that the entire 360 deal is, at its core, performance-based and assuredly tour-driven in its concept, Madonna is delivering.

    Madonna's Deal With Live Nation-Interscope Worth $40 Million

    According to Fogel -- the guy who would know -- these are the facts: 76 Madonna shows at arenas and stadiums are on sale in North America and Europe combined. More than 1.4 million tickets have been sold, banking about $214 million for an average in the $2.7 million per show in a mix of stadiums and arenas. And the tour doesn't even begin until May 29 in Tel Aviv, first hitting America in Philadelphia Aug. 28.

    Billboard Power 100: Arthur Fogel

    Fogel's not sure what to make of the detractors. "This tour is completely on track to end up in the top 10 tours of all time, especially considering we haven't put South America or Australia on sale," he tells Billboard.biz. "To say this tour is not performing is so off base I don't even know what to say. When this tour is said and done, combined with 'Sticky and Sweet,' you're talking $750 million in gross ticket sales. That sounds pretty impressive to me."

    If tickets are still available for certain shows, that by no means spells disaster. "One of the things some people don't get is, I don't necessarily want to be sold out at this point; I keep trying to find tickets to sell," says Fogel. "Every day our people are trying to fine-tune the site lines and production kills. That's my job. It's great when you can say 'sold out,' but right now I want to keep finding tickets to sell. That's the game."

    Is Madonna Behind Live Nation's Stock Surge?

    European dates, which are mostly in stadiums, have come under particular scrutiny. Fogel says the $214 million gross banked so far is spread "pretty evenly" between North America and Europe, and there are 43 shows on sale in North America versus 33 in Europe. "You can do the math," Fogel says, reeling off sales figures. "46,000 in Istanbul, 44,000 in Milan, 39,000 in Florence. We sold out two arenas in Barcelona, two in Berlin, two in Amsterdam, we sold 42,000 in Edinburgh, 40,000 in Helsinki, 51,000 in Paris. If that's trouble, give me more."

    Fogel concedes Europe didn't blow up the way North America did, but cites buying patterns for stadium general admission tickets in Europe, and the huge promotional boost of the Super Bowl performance in America as key factors in that disparity.

    "She's at the top of her game and she ain't goin' away," he concludes.

    That doesn't even make sense: "The days of tours supporting records are long gone..." (i.e. tours no longer boost record sales) "...for some time now, touring drives record sales" (i.e. tours boost record sales?)

    I think it's just saying that the tour is far more an integral and active part of the campaign, rather than a passive support to back up the album. That's how I read it, anyway.

    Which seems like making a point for the sake of making a point. I don't recall any major tour NOTABLY boosting record sales, beyond either a tie-in live album which both Madonna and Kylie have done, or the re-appearance of the studio album at the tail-end of the chart which surely is nothing new.

    Madonna might well believe that this tour is going to revive 'MDNA' but surely every other person with any common sense knows she's trying to apply the touring logic of an unsigned act promoting their first album to her own tour, when she SHOULD be out there on the TV promo trail.

    at this point i wouldn't be surprised if the only thing she cares about is to make some more money
    it definitely looks like she doesn't care about the charts or making music that wouldn't tarnish her legacy

    Touring did USED to be to promote records, absolutely, but in this day and age, a LOT LESS SO. Artists are so visible nowadays you don't get the "OH MY SHIT, MADONNA'S IN THE UK" frenzy you used to get in ye olden days that gave the publicity boost...

    absolutely. Plus the days when albums were released softly and they grew from single releases and touring are over too. Apart from some interesting anomolies, unless you open big out of the gate, you're unlikely to recoup any momentum, especially with the lazy, fickle approach labels have to artists these days.

    I just think the bitch realises she will make more getting $500million odd from this tour than $20million from an album or whatever.

    Which is a shame but she's all about the cash.

    No wonder Guy O is so keen he gets a good whack of it

    It's like Jark's dream setlist COME TO LIFE with all those 'elements of'.

    That's much too good to be true though, I mean: Gambler, Deeper & Deeper, Express Yourself, Nothing Really Matters, Open Your Heart, Papa Don't Preach and Hung Up is a little too perfect.

    I'm Addicted needs to close the show though (Celebration can fuck off).

    I just like reading them cos they never end up like it

    I hate that its the acoustic version of Love Spent - despite the fact that I've not heard it, THAT would actually ruin almost the whole thing for me. The She's Not Me inclusion on THAT song is obviously a fan drooling. I also hate whenever Nancy's version gets more attention than the Cher original.

    It's far too long anyway.

    That looks shit the bed AMAZING. I really was secretly hoping she'd slip Music in there with the LMFAO elements. I can imagine Celebration would be quite the MOMENT too as closer.

    You should listen to it, it's not actually that different and it's more electronic-acoustic. There's also a weird chanty bit sung by Prescilla Renea.

    Blatant crap - CANDY SHOP ? Tho i wouldnt put it past her and i do love it

    Im totally into the Express Yourself / Born This Way idea as said before....the loons (both) would implode

    More set list postings from m.d.n.a - "I'm just reporting what I've been told, this person has never told me a lie before. Things can still change as well. So if none of this turns out to be true don't hate me lol.

    JML is a new remix (apparently this is brand new mix not sure if this is a new remix done by orbit as previously mentioned) the vocals seem to be pitched differently and there's a devilish laugh throughout the mix, in the video said to have been filmed by tom munro which features madonna in her underwear with a whip and mask (like featured in the tod perfume advert)she's being chased by carnival people (not sure exactly what that means).

    I don't give a and turn up the radio are done on guitar.

    Candy shop has samples of erotica in it with a 60's or 70's type vibe.

    Express yourself is mixed with born this way and at the end "she's not me" is repeated

    I'll add to this later or tomorrow when I hear more."

    Looks increasingly likely Express Yourself is mashed up with Born This Way (with elements of Shes Not Me)
    And I'm Addicted is in as well.

    It's going to be AMAZING (assuming it's only the chorus of BTW, ie. the only good bit). Not that I ever imagined it wouldn't be in, but at I'm Addicted too.

    Express Yourself DONE RIGHT is more than enough and I don't want any Gaga references beyond She's Not Me thrown in there at a PUSH. Good GRIEF, she can FUCK RIGHT OFF if she's going to piss all over her ORIGINAL with a would-be anthem shoehorning every minority bar a one-armed deaf and dumb lesbian in its middle-8.
