Madonna brings The Celebration Tour to Nashville in support of LGBTQ+ rights

1 Mins read

Monday, March 27, legendary pop singer Madonna announced she would be adding eight more shows to The Celebration Tour. One of these shows will be held in Nashville on December 22, and it will specifically aim to support trans rights. 

In a press release, Madonna expressed her concern over the passing of anti-LGBTQ legislation in Tennessee and other states, stating that “The oppression of the LGBTQ+ is not only unacceptable and inhumane; it’s creating an unsafe environment; it makes America a dangerous place for our most vulnerable citizens, especially trans women of color.” 

Madonna also criticized the “so-called laws to protect our children” as being “unfounded and pathetic.” She added, “Anyone with half a brain knows not to f— with a drag queen.” She referenced Bob the Drag Queen, who is set to support the singer on her upcoming tour, stating that she and Bob look forward to celebrating “the beauty that is the queer community” in Nashville.

According to the press release, proceeds from the Nashville show will be donated to various trans rights organizations. Madonna has also added new tour dates in several cities, including Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Palm Springs, and Sacramento. Additionally, she will perform a second show in Phoenix and a third night in both Las Vegas and San Francisco. 

Madonna announced her 40-year-anniversary tour in January, which is scheduled to begin on July 17 in Vancouver. The singer expressed her excitement to perform a variety of songs for her fans during the tour, which will also honor her hometown of New York. The Celebration Tour tickets for the new dates will be available for purchase this week, with presales starting on Tuesday and general sales on Friday through Madonna.com, including Citi and Official Fan Club presales.
