Madonna's Celebration Tour arrives in Cleveland
Some 14,000 people will be living in a material world with a material girl Thursday night.
Driving the news: Madonna's Celebration Tour descends upon Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse at 8:30pm.
- Tickets are still available, starting at $40.
Why it matters: It's the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer's first concert in Cleveland since 2012.
- It's also the first big show of an impressive 2024 concert schedule.
Catch up fast: The Celebration Tour was originally supposed to stop in Cleveland this past August.
- The concert was rescheduled after the 65-year-old singer was hospitalized with a bacterial infection in June.
- Madge also sports outfits from various eras like the blonde-bombshell "Material Girl," kinky "Erotica" phase and mid-2000s club music period.
Between the lines: Early in her set, Madonna floats on a mini stage while performing the ballad "Live to Tell."
The big picture: Fans don't have to wait long for another big tour. Hip-hop star Drake will perform back-to-back nights at the FieldHouse on Feb. 24 and 25.
- The concert schedule will heat up with summer shows featuring Justin Timberlake, Luke Bryan and Janet Jackson, as well as stadium concerts with The Rolling Stones in June, Def Leppard and Billy Joel.
The bottom line: This is a good year to cross concerts off your bucket list, especially because artists like Madonna and the Stones aren't getting any younger.
Worthy of your time: The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is hosting a Madonna-themed day that includes artifacts from several tours and footage of her 2008 induction.
