Madonna is having a huge party and everyone's invited. The Madonna World Tour 2012 begins May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel, it was officially announced today by Live Nation Entertainment, the tour's international promoter. The shows will include arenas, stadiums and special outdoor sights, including the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City and a return visit to South America as well as Australia, where Madonna has not performed in 20 years. The tour will stop in 26 European cities, including London, Paris, Milan and Berlin.

The first of 26 North American shows is scheduled for Aug. 28 in Philadelphia. The tour includes a Sept. 6 show at New York's Yankee Stadium and an Oct. 10 performance at Los Angeles' Staples Center. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale beginning Feb. 10 in Tel Aviv and the United Kingdom, with North American tickets going on sale beginning Feb. 13, including the Sept. 10 performance at Scotiabank Place. Tickets for dates in North America are available at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Madonna's previous tour, the phenomenally successful Sticky & Sweet Tour, reaffirmed her status as one of the most successful touring artists of all time. The historic tour included such incredible touring feats as a 70,000-seat sellout in Werchter, Belgium, an 85,000 ticket sellout in Helsinki (the largest show ever in the Nordic countries by a solo artist), a 40,000 ticket sellout in Oslo, Norway, and 72,000 tickets sold in one day in Tallinn, Estonia. Other record-breaking ticket sales around the globe include 650,000 sold in her series of South American dates, 72,000 tickets at Zurich's Dübendorf Airfield - the largest audience ever assembled for a show in Switzerland - 75,000 tickets in London and four sellouts in New York's Madison Square Garden (60,364 tickets).

The announcement of Madonna's World Tour 2012 follows an extraordinary week, which included a performance at the Bridgestone Super Bowl Halftime that was seen in more than 200 countries by over a billion people. Last week also saw the release of Madonna's new single, Give Me All Your Luvin, from her highly-anticipated new album MDNA on Live Nation Entertainment/Interscope Records - scheduled to be released on March 26. Pre-orders have already catapulted MDNA to No. 1 on iTunes in 50 countries, including the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Spain, Canada, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands. The single's video, directed by Megaforce, which also stars Nicki Minaj and MIA, previewed on American Idol. Additionally, the Madonna-directed Golden Globe Award-winning film W.E. opened in New York and L.A., with other markets to follow later in the month.

"Madonna's track record as a world-class entertainer and touring artist speaks for itself. Her artistry, talent and creative productions get bigger and better with each tour and Madonna's 2012 world tour will be no exception. We are thrilled to have her back on the road and know her fans feel the same," said Arthur Fogel, CEO Live Nation Entertainment Global Touring and Madonna's tour promoter.

In the course of her phenomenal career, Madonna has a record-breaking 37 Top 10 hits on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Chart, along with a record-breaking 40 No. 1s on Billboard's Dance/Club Play Song Charts. No other act has more Top 10s on the Hot 100 or No. 1s on the Club Chart. Madonna has sold more than 300 million albums and holds the record for the most successful tour by a solo artist in history. She is a seven time Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, producer and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Her last CD, Hard Candy, debuted at No. 1 in 37 countries, including the U.S., U.K., Canada, France and Australia. Madonna World Tour 2012 is the Material Girl's ninth tour. Her first was the 1985 Virgin Tour.

Madonna's recent Golden Globe-winning song, Masterpiece, from The Weinstein Company film W.E., as well as W.E. music from the soundtrack W.E., have both been released digitally on Interscope Records. A physical release will be in stores in the U.K. on Feb. 6 and in the U.S. on Feb. 14.
