Madonna announces Rebel Heart tour

Madonna will tour through North America and Europe this year.

The singer was the name on everyone's lips following the BRIT Awards last week, where she took a tumble from the stage when a dancer yanked her cape.

While many people would lie low for a while, the 56-year-old star hasn't let the incident hold her back. Instead she's excited fans by revealing her 2015 tour dates.

"'Rebel Heart' Tour Announced For North America And Europe! Tour Kicks Off In Miami August 29th (sic)," she wrote on her Twitter, linking her followers to her official website, where they can get more information.

After Miami she will move through North America via Puerto Rico, finishing that leg in Los Angeles on October 27.

Then it's on to Europe, with her first date in Köln, Germany, on November 4. She'll stop off in cities such as Prague, Stockholm and Turin, before hitting London, UK, on December 1 and finally finishing up in Glasgow, Scotland, on the 20th.

Asian and Australian fans needn't worry, as Billboard has reported she'll hit that part of the world in 2016.

This is Madonna's first tour since her MDNA shows in 2012.

The pop icon recently addressed her BRITs fall while on UK TV host Jonathan Ross' show. It looked as though she fell on her butt, but the star says she actually hurt her head. Luckily her "good core strength" and having taken tumbles off horses in the past helped her land more gracefully.

"I'm a creature of habit, I rehearse everything - everything, everything, everything - and I was thrown a wrench at the very beginning of my entrance. I was told to tie my cape and start much further back than we had rehearsed, so because I had to walk so much further, everybody was worried that my cape was going to slide off because it's quite heavy so they tied it really tight around my neck," she explained to the host.

"So here I am marching in like a queen, and I got to the top of the stairs, and I pulled my silky string and it would not come undone. My two lovely Japanese dancers basically strangled me off the stage. I had a choice, I could either be strangled or fall with the cape and I fell."
