Madonna Heading to New Orleans After 27 Years

Posted: Oct. 25th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

On Saturday, October 27, Madonna will be performing in New Orleans for her first time since 1985 when she was on her Virgin Tour. With massive popularity now and equally high production values, Madonna's concert is one that everyone in the Big Easy should be trying to get into. 

Nearly three decades since the release of her debut album, Madonna still inspires strong feelings among fiercely devoted fans and equally animated detractors. She has managed to keep herself in the public eye, and hold irrelevancy at bay, even as pop starlets less than half her age successfully mimic her career blueprint.

Will her current, 12th studio album, “MDNA,” go down in history as an essential Madonna work? Probably not. If nothing else, a new record is an excuse for her to launch another extravagant, Catholic church-baiting tour/dance party.
