Madonna to give concert in Dublin

Madonna is to play Dublin as part of her upcoming world tour.

The capital is one of 26 European cities where the pop superstar will perform along with shows in the US, South America, Australia and Canada.

Madonna 2012 World begins on May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel, before hitting the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on July 24.

Live Nation Entertainment, the tour's international promoter, made the official announcement on Tuesday night, hot on the heels of worldwide praise for her Super Bowl performance in front of an audience of 100 million.

Arthur Fogel, chief executive of Live Nation Entertainment Global Touring and Madonna tour promoter, said he was thrilled to have the star back on the road.

"Madonna's track record as a world-class entertainer and touring artist speaks for itself," he said.

"Her artistry, talent and creative productions get bigger and better with each tour and Madonna 2012 will be no exception."

Shows are being planned for arenas, stadiums and special outdoor sights including the Plains of Abraham in Quebec.

It will be the first time Madonna has played South America and Australia in 20 years.

Tickets go on sale on Friday February 17 at 8am priced from 54.65 euro to 141 euro.
