Madonna has announced she will end her ‘Celebration Tour’ with a historic free concert in Brazil.

The Queen of Pop, 65, shared the news on Monday (25.03.24) that the gig, sponsored by Itaú Apresenta, will be held in Rio de Janeiro on 4 May at Copacabana Beach.

A press release said it will be “free of charge as a thank you to her fans for celebration more than four decades of her music over the course of the epic global run of the tour”.

The show will also be broadcast live on TV Globo.

It will mark Madonna’s first concert in Brazil since 2012.

There are no tickets required for the event, which will take place in front of the Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel, and entry will be available on a first-come first-serve basis.

Before arriving in Brazil, Madonna will perform Dallas before making stops including Houston, Atlanta and Austin.

She is also set to take the stage in Miami for three nights at the Kaseya Center from 6–9 April and will play at Palacio De Los Deportes in Mexico City for five nights.

Madonna’s much-anticipated greatest hits tour started at London’s O2 Arena in October with a two-hour set where she opened up about her road back to the stage after her hospitalisation in 2023 after she suffered a severe bacterial infection.

Referring to her children Lourdes, 27, Rocco, 23, David, 18, Mercy, 18, and twins Stella and Estere, 11, the singer told fans: “I didn’t think I was gonna make it. Neither did my doctors. That’s why I woke up with all of my children sitting around me.”

Madonna added about her recovery from illness: “But the angels were protecting me, and my children were there. And my children always save me every time.”

She said earlier this month about how she was struggling through her tour: “This show every night is not really so hard on me physically. It’s hard on me emotionally because I’m really telling you the story of my life.

“My heart is on my sleeve. I’ve fallen off a lot of horses and broken a lot of bones... but nothing can stop me.”
