Report: Madonna Eyes New Recording Contract As Live Nation Deal Comes To An End?

Published: Monday 7th Sep 2015 by David

Is Madonna on the hunt for a new record label to house her forthcoming material?

Find out why this may be the case below!

In 2007 the ‘Bedtime Story’ teller entered into a agreement with the entertainment company Live Nation which tied her to them for a decade.

The $120 million deal saw her nab a $17. 5 million advance and score between $50 to $60 million to record and release up to three albums.

That isn’t all.

For, $50 million in cash and stock was put aside to give them the right to license the icon’s name and promote her extravagant concerts. How much of her touring pie does the ‘Bad Girl’ dish up for herself when the curtains close? 90%.

Alas, all good things must come to an end.

For, 2017 will see this deal draw its last breath. The problem? Nation is unlikely to renew it.

The New York Post reports:

The curtain goes up on Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” tour on Wednesday, and those who have seen rehearsals at the Nassau Coliseum call it brilliant. That should come as no surprise considering what the Material Girl has riding on the 64-show global arena trek.

Her 10-year partnership with concert-promoter Live Nation expires in 2017, just nine months after she wraps up her third and final tour under the deal. And no one expects the soup-to-nuts 360 deal that guaranteed Madonna an unprecedented $120 million in 2007 to be renewed in its current incarnation.

If true, Ms. ‘Material’ will be tasked with finding a new machine to churn out her content once the deal is done.

    Is this news?

    • Stephy September 7, 2015

      Are you going to the tour? I’ve got my tickets for the January 20th show. I can’t wait. I heard, this will be a more “intimate” experience. I hope that don’t mean she’s singing with a guitar the whole damn show.

      • Suicide Blonde September 7, 2015

        Lol, yes, she’s no playing stadiums so i don’t expect anything big like the other tours.

  4. shakira stan September 7, 2015

      She better get back to prostitution!

  6. Royalkev September 7, 2015

    She’ll start a label. Trust me!

    • Amanda D. September 7, 2015

      If Medusa goes the indie label route – AGAIN, it’ll flop just like the last one she TRIED to have. I believe the name of it was, “Maverick Records”, or some sh*t like that. lol Don’t lie and, say it was successful b/c if it wad, she wouldn’t have gone back to a major label (just like Prince ultimately did too). There were ZERO stars on that label (except her and, she was becoming a ???? around that time herself). Ppl like her & Prince can’t have their own record labels anyway b/c they don’t want to nurture young artists. They’re much too busy being intimidated by them, hating on them or, trying to ride their coattails (and, I don’t even think they know how to guide young artists’ careers anyway especially Prince). Ppl like Medusa and Prince just want to hold on to their fading careers for as long as they can. And, when the kndie route flops for her – AGAIN, what major label is gonna wanna sign a 60 yr. old washed up ’80’s pop star.

    She can still tour but when will she get the hint that it’s time to retire??

  8. B2B September 7, 2015

    Ala Roc Nation…?

  9. truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) September 7, 2015

    Do u Madge

  10. Mark111 September 7, 2015

    She better hope her tour does well, because no one will want her with a flop album and tour.

  11. Kenneth cooper September 7, 2015

    Janet performing in arenas too

  12. What now September 7, 2015

    The Queen of Pop has no worries.

  13. Ameya September 8, 2015

    Flopdonna still proves in 2015 that she owns her title with her biggest flop album and singles to date!
