After months of leaks, speculation and conjecture, Madonna and Live Nation have finally confirmed that the Material Girl will embark on a world tour in support of her new album ‘MDNA’ this May. Madge showed the world she still has “it” when it comes to live performances, courtesy of her 2012 Super Bowl XLVI halftime performance, which has been earning rave reviews.

The upcoming world tour will be Madge’s first road trek in three years. She last hit the live circuit on her ‘Sticky & Sweet’ tour in 2008 and 2009. According to Reuters, this time out, she will launch the tour on May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel and travel to Abu Dhabi and Istanbul through early June. Madge will then hit Europe, South America and Australia. She has not gone Down Under in nearly 20 years, and the dates for South America and Oz are not yet set in stone. Madge will hit over 20 European and Middle Eastern cities, with London, Edinburgh, Paris, Milan, Abu Dhabi and Berlin among them.

She will wrap the Euro leg on Aug. 21 in France. While no dates and locations for the North American leg have been confirmed, Live Nation said the tour will wrap in Miami. Go here to check out the preliminary dates for North America.

Madge is not showing preference for the NFL, either, as MLB also revealed that Madge will play Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Sept. 6. Tickets for that show go on sale on Monday, Feb. 13. That’s going to be one hot ticket.

Madge is back. Yeah, we said it.
