After her mostly praised Super Bowl XLVI halftime performance - aside from that whole M.I.A. middle-finger thing - Madonna will perform at Toyota Center on Wednesday, October 24, Live Nation announced this morning.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, February 27, at the usual outlets: livenation.com, toyotacentertix.com, "most" Houston-area Randall's stores and 1-866-4HOUTIX (446-8849).
The tour is designed to promote the singer's album MDNA, scheduled for release March 26 (and not an Ecstasy reference at all, we're sure).
After bypassing Houston for nearly two decades, Madonna performed in November 2008 at Minute Maid Park on the "Sticky & Sweet Tour."
"She did so without turning the affair into a greatest-hits revue - about half the set came from Hard Candy, and there was no 'Papa Don't Preach,' no 'Lucky Star," no 'Express Yourself,'" Rocks Off wrote at the time.
"They weren't missed, mostly because like Madonna herself, nobody stopped moving long enough to notice."
