Irish fans prepare for first-ever Madonna visit at Slane Castle

THE wait was officially over for Madonna fans today as the queen of pop’s first-ever Irish concert was officially confirmed.
The Material Girl is to stage her much-anticipated concert at Slane Castle in Co Meath on Sunday, August 29.
There had been much speculation that Madonna would bring her re-Invention World Tour to these shores.
Although it was widely known that she was being lined up for the gig, promoters MCD/Wonderland refused to confirm it.
However, a spokesman said the tour would now go ahead, subject to license.
He said it was common for tickets to go on sale prior to a final decision being made on licensing.
Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday morning, priced 88.50 euro.
Madonna’s re-Invention tour has won critical acclaim so far, with her sold-out debut being described by the New York Times as “dense, dizzying and exhilarating”.
The multi-Grammy Award winner is one of the biggest pop stars in the world – and one of the most controversial, provoking fury from the Catholic Church with her sexually explicit stage shows and videos.
In her two-decade career she has sold over 250 million albums and had more top ten singles than any other female artist in history.
Hits have included, Like A Virgin, Material Girl, Like A Prayer, Erotic, Vogue, Frozen and American Life.
In addition to her music, the star has also acted in movies like Evita and Desperately Seeking Susan and has published an adult sex book and children’s book.
Other acts for the Slane concert have yet to be announced.
Tickets go on sale at 8am and are limited to six per person.
