The Material Girl To Tour Spain in September

Aug 7, 2008
Madonna recently announced plans to tour Spain in September 2008. Her Spanish shows will include a show on 16 September in Madrid, which will be followed by a show two days later at the Cheste Race Track in Valencia.

Madonna is currently on tour to support her latest album, Hard Candy, which was released on 29 April 2008. Hard Candy is her 11th studio album with Warner Brothers. It is the follow up album to Confessions on a Dance Floor, which sold over eight million copies worldwide and debuted at number one on the charts in thirty countries.

Hard Candy expands on the clubby dance anthems of Confessions on a Dance Floor. On the new album, Madonna collaborates with the top names in modern dance music, like Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes and Nate 'Danja' Hills.

The first single off the album, entitled '4 Minutes' is a collaboration with Timberlake and Timbaland. It was released on 17 March. It earned Madonna her 37th Billboard Top 100 hit, making her the artist with the most Top 10 hits in the history of the chart. The record was previously held by Elvis Presley. In the UK, the song was Madonna's thirteenth number one single, retaining her record for the most number one singles for a female artist.

Madonna's career in the entertainment industry began when she left her hometown in the suburbs of Detroit to become a ballet dancer in New York City. She arrived in the Big Apple with only $35 in her pocket. She often states that the move was the bravest thing she'd ever done.

She soon became romantically involved with musician Dan Gilroy, and they formed a band called Breakfast Club. Madonna sang and played drums and guitar. In 1980, she formed another band called Emmy with former boyfriend Stephen Bray. This project caught the attention of New York's club scene, and a local dj passed their demo along to Sire Records executive Seymour Stein.

Madonna was soon signed to the label. By 1983, she released a self-titled debut solo album. Over the course of the 1980's, she released three consecutive albums that made their way into the Billboard Top 200.

Since the early days of her career, Madonna has been a pop icon and a fashion trendsetter. Her success is due in part to her ability to transform her image. From naughty girl to children's book author, Madonna has been everything in between over the course of the last three decades.

Madonna has been dubbed 'The Queen of Pop' by music journalists. She is the top-earning female musician in the world with an estimated net worth of over $400 million US dollars, according to Guinness World Records. With over 200 million albums sold, she is the top selling female artist of the twentieth century.

In March 2008, she was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans in Spain and the world over are sure to enjoy her upcoming tour dates in support of her new album.
