After several months of will she/won't she speculation, MCD have announced that Madonna will definitely bring her Re:invention Greatest Hits World Tour to Slane Castle on Sunday August 29.
Despite tabloid speculation that they might be as much as €150, tickets go on sale at 8am on Friday June 18 priced €88.50 which compares very favourably to the €105 and €120 charged last year by those other musical legends Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones. It's also considerably cheaper than the average Stateside price for Madge tickets which is $200.
Hotpress has learned that the Slane gates will be opening later than they normally do to accommodate locals going to mass, and that there will be at least three, possibly four support acts.
With Meath County Council and the local Garda Chief Superintendent both green lighting the show, it looks like nothing can stop Ireland getting its first glimpse of the material girl.
