Madonna's All-Star Concert Policy
Celebrities shouldn't look for freebies to Madonna's sold-out "Drowned World Tour," as Mick Jagger, Elton John, Angelina Jolie, George Michael and Naomi Campbell have reportedly found out. "The policy on her tour is that there are no comped tickets, not even for celebrities," Madonna's spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, confirmed to the New York Post. Ordinarily, stars receive free passes to big concerts, including -- in the past -- those performed by the Material Mom. Only not this time. "If you want a ticket for one of her shows, you have to pay," reiterated Rosenberg. "Everyone is the same." This means that Jagger, John and the others ponied up $125 a seat, plus a booking fee, in order to catch her recent London gig. After her final British performance on Thursday, Madonna will take a week off before launching the 12-city U.S. leg of the tour. (The entire world tour -- her first in eight years -- is sold out.) At New York's Madison Square Garden, where Madonna is set to perform on July 25, 26, 28, 30 and 31, the $250 seats are reputedly being scalped for as much as $2,050 each.
