Madonna's Singapore concert rated R18, tickets to cost up to $1,288
MADONNA'S upcoming concert in Singapore on Feb 28 as part of her Rebel Heart tour has been issued a rare R18 rating by the Media Development Authority with an advisory on "sexual references".
Only those aged 18 and older will be permitted entry to the National Stadium where the concert is due to be held, according to a press release yesterday by local coordinators Mediacorp Vizpro International.
The Rebel Heart tour set list includes a segment in which she performs a mash-up of her songs Holy Water and Vogue, involving scantily clad nuns pole-dancing on cross-shaped stripper poles. Madonna herself takes a turn on the pole, before joining her dancers on a Last Supper-style table.
Tickets cost from $108 to $688, while VIP tickets are going at $1,288 each. Details are as yet unavailable on what the VIP tickets will get buyers.
Her VIP tickets are the most expensive concert tickets in Singapore to date. In 2013, K-pop star G-Dragon charged $1,000 for concert tickets that included a meet-and-greet session, although fans had to pay only $120 for just the show tickets.
Tickets here will be available at Sportshubtix.sg, its hotline 3158-7888, on site at the National Stadium box office and at all SingPost Outlets.
Pre-sale tickets for the Madonna Icon Fan Club go on sale today at 10am and public sales commence on Tuesday at 10am.
