Over the course of Madonna’s illustrious career, the Pop empress has established herself as a master of reinvention.
Era after era, she has evolved her sound and aesthetic like no other.

More audience participation and connecting to human beings – I feel I’m craving that more and more.”

That said, she quite literally out-grosses every live act with each of her tours. And with fans ready and willing to pay the scarily expensive prices she charges, will she gladly walk away from the 100s of millions ($) she makes with her current setup?
Perhaps this “new model” is a way for her to scale back the demands on her as a performer as 60 looms?
