Rabbis who failed to snap up a ticket for the new Madonna tour dates are still in with a chance but it’s a case of bad luck for everybody else.
Tickets to seven shows at Wembley in August sold out within hours yesterday.
However, the Queen of Pop has reserved 40 free seats at each show for Jewish leaders because of her involvement in the religion’s Kabbalah sect.
If you’re not a rabbi, you have one last chance – keep reading Bizarre as I’ll be giving away tickets in a great contest soon.

Good news for Madonna fans, but you need to act quick. The Material Girl will be performing a second show in Fresno.
Tickets for her first show went on sale today for the concert on June 5th.
There were some advanced tickets already sold, but once tickets went on sale this morning, the concert sold out in 20 minutes.
Madonna will perform another show on Tuesday, June 6th at the Save Mart Center. Those tickets are on sale right now, but are going quickly.

Tickets for Madonna’s Confessions Tour have sold out in just 10 minutes.
Fans snapped up every ticket for the first two Wembley Arena gigs as soon as the box office opened at 9am on Friday.
A further four Wembley dates were swiftly added – and all had sold out by lunchtime.
Now a seventh gig has been added for August 15.
Demand for the tour has been phenomenal despite the cheapest tickets costing £80, with a top price of £160.
So far only the Wembley dates have been made available.
Tickets for the gig at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on July 30 go on sale later this month.
The Confessions World Tour kicks off in Los Angeles on May 21.

Several ticket booking websites slowed to a crawl or were forced offline this morning owing to the huge demand for the recently announced series of concerts by Madonna.
Ticketline.co.uk and Gigsandtours.com both experienced loading times of 30 seconds or more after 9am when tickets went on sale, while Getlive.co.uk reported similar loading times before going offline at 10.20am.
Getlive.co.uk also reported several server errors, which could have left many visitors unable to purchase tickets and obliged to go elsewhere.
“Madonna fans will have been looking forward to this day for a long time, but the overall performance of several key websites may have left many without tickets and disappointed,” said Haran Sold, EMEA managing director at Keynote, a web optimisation firm that detected the problems.
“When you’re talking a minimum of £80 a head, online ticket retailers all have a responsibility to ensure a high level of service even at peak periods of activity.
“The fans that experienced considerable slowdowns, or couldn’t access websites in the first place, may well do their ticket shopping elsewhere in the future.”
In contrast to the problems experienced by some retailers, Ticketmaster.co.uk and Theonlineticketshop.com held up well during the busiest periods of activity, and were not affected in terms of loading times or overall availability.
Equally, as people tried their luck on eBay, the eBay.co.uk ticket search page also achieved a steady performance and 100 per cent availability.

Two further Wembley Arena shows have been added to Madonna’s Confessions tour after the first dates sold out in under an hour this morning.
The tickets went on sale at 9am, and the performances scheduled for August 1 and 3 were snapped up in around 50 minutes. Not bad going when you consider that Wembley Arena can pack in 10,000 fans for each night and prices range from £80 to a whopping £160 for a ticket. Three further dates were then announced for August 9, 10 and 12.
Madge will also head to Cardiff for a single date at the 60,000-capacity Millennium Stadium on July 30, but tickets will not go on sale until April 21.

Madonna fans who’ll shell out up to $384.50 a pop for her June shows at Madison Square Garden can at least take solace that the do-re-mi is going to a good cause: Madge’s creature comforts on the road.
The tireless terpsichorean, who rehearsal spywitnesses say at 47 is in better shape than ever, will perform crowd-pleasing classics like “Ray of Light” and “Like a Virgin,” and hits from her 1.4 million-selling “Confessions on a Dance Floor.” And she’ll puddle-jump between 21 cities from L.A. to Amsterdam, in a private jet, natch.
Kids Lourdes, 9, and Rocco, 5, will be running around the world’s finest hotels like Eloise at the Plaza, since the diva has insisted they and hubby Guy Ritchie and nannies need an entire floor wherever they go.
Every one of her dancers and band members down to the last maraca player will wear couture by Stella McCartney and Jean Paul Gaultier, with numerous costume changes. And she’ll need those oxygen facials every day, along with a team of skin specialists in tow, our sources say.
The profits will also go to prophets: The Artist Occasionally Known as Esther has demanded 40 free tickets for rabbis and fellow kabbala-following pals at each venue, with 50 more for celebrity schnorrers, er, friends, like Gwyneth Paltrow and Lindsay Lohan. She also wants 15 cases of Kabbalah water for every show, sources say.
But all this is just a drop in the bucket from what her shows are projected to earn. Her 2004 “Re-Invention” tour – the concert tour of the year – raked in $125 million.
