Local Madonna fans rejoice. The queen of pop is coming to town. As noted by Datebook, the pop icon is bringing her Celebration Tour to San Francisco’s Chase Center on Oct. 4-5. The artist, who first achieved mainstream success in the 1980s with hits like “Material Girl” and “Like a Virgin” just added the Oct. 5 date to her local run of shows.
Madonna, who last performed in SF four years ago, shared the news on YouTube with a star-studded—and slightly tipsy—game of truth or dare, featuring comedians such as Amy Schumer and Jack Black.
For those who need a refresher on Madonna’s four decades of cultural contributions, the pop star posted a splashy promo video on her official Twitter this morning.

The Celebration Tour launches in Vancouver on July 15, followed by performances in Los Angeles, New York, London, Stockholm, Barcelona, Paris and more. Opening act Bob the Drag Queen (aka Caldwell Tidicue) is slated to warm up the crowd for all dates.
A presale open to legacy members of Madonna’s official fan club kicked off at noon today. Early access will also be available for Citi card members, who will have an opportunity to jump the ticketing line by punching in code “SOUND” at 2 p.m. Jan. 19 during the Live Nation’s presale. Tickets for the general public go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 20.
No reports from the interwebs yet of ticketing snafus à la Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, but fans are concerned that tickets could go fast, so set your alarm to vogue with your Madonna fan besties.
