Madonna relied on her, so did Cher.
Now, ever-quotable p.r. queen Liz Rosenberg exclusively tells us she’s abdicating her throne to retire.
“I think two centuries is long enough, don’t you?” quipped Rosenberg, who’s also repped Michael Bublé and Stevie Nicks and worked with Prince, Rod Stewart, Carly Simon and Ashford & Simpson.
Madonna portrayed her on “SNL” in 1992 — “the good ol’ days,” Rosenberg recalled.
She launched Liz Rosenberg Media in 2010 after nearly 40 years at Warner Bros. Records.
“It reminds me not to take it all too seriously,” Rosenberg said of her look — regularly wearing bunny ears on starry red carpets.
She’s looking forward to an extended break, but, “I’m going to consult, advise and protect my peeps from the likes of Page Six forever. I love them too much to do otherwise,” she said. “On a serious note, these people are part of my family. I could never step away completely. I envision myself like Sue Mengers, doing my work from a round bed with a lot of lip-shaped pillows.”
Live Nation announced today that Madonna will make a historic return to Australia performing live for the first time in 23 years as well as her first ever shows in New Zealand, with her Rebel Heart Tour. The tour will kick off at Vector Arena on March 5th and 6th in Auckland, followed by the Australian dates presented by Telstra Thanks® and including concerts March 12th & 13th in Melbourne, March 19th & 20th in Sydney and March 26th & 27th in Brisbane (complete itinerary follows). Tickets go on sale Monday, July 6th at 10am.
The Rebel Heart Tour begins in Montreal on September 9th and continues throughout North America and UK/Europe. “Madonna continues to be one of the most successful touring artists in history. Her shows are always legendary and we are thrilled to have her back on tour,” says Arthur Fogel, President – Global Touring and Chairman – Global Music.
The Rebel Heart Tour follows the March 9 release of Madonna’s critically acclaimed 13th studio album – Rebel Heart – by Interscope Records. A week after its release Rebel Heart debuted at No. 1 in Australia making it Madonna’s eleventh No. 1 album on the Australian ARIA Charts, tying the record for most number one albums on the chart. In the United States the album shot to the top of the Billboard Sales Chart. The first two singles from the album, “Living for Love” and “Ghosttown” went to No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Charts, and Madonna subsequently set a new world record becoming the only artist to have 45 Number One songs on any chart in Billboard History. On June 16th, Madonna released the “Bitch I’m Madonna” EP featuring ten remixes from Sander Kleinenberg, Fedde Le Grand, Junior Sanchez, and more.
Along with extraordinary critical acclaim as an artist, songwriter and producer who has sold a record breaking 300 million records, Madonna’s reputation as one of the most successful, provocative and enduring live performers of all time speaks for itself. The 2008/2009 Sticky & Sweet tour is the highest grossing tour of all time for a solo artist and the 2012 MDNA tour was the most successful tour of that year.
