MADONNA will play her first UK live show in seven years at LONDON’s BRIXTON ACADEMY on November 28 with a glittering array of suppporting stars, NME.COM can confirm.
The Queen of pop will be joined on the night by former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft and Texas as support with Fatboy Slim and the Prodigy’s Liam Howlett on DJing duties.
The show is already on a much larger scale than a similar promotional gig in New York’s Roseland Ballroom on Sunday (November 5) when Madonna performed some five tracks from new album ‘Music’ in front of 3,000 fans. Support then came from Everlast and former Jane’s Addiction mainman Perry Farrell.
The Brixton show is expected to be webcast across the world either live or shortly afterwards. NME.COM understands that Microsoft are dealing with the Internet broadcast.
Tickets will not be available to the general public. They will be given to competition winners and members of the music industry, so please don’t email NME.COM looking for any further details as we will be unable to help you!
