The ‘Hung Up’ hitmaker wants to mark 30 years since her groundbreaking ‘Like a Virgin’ concert series from 1985 with a string of shows across the globe in support of a planned new album.
A source said: “This is going to be one very special tour. Madonna wants to pull out all the stops, especially because it is 30 years since the ‘Virgin’ tour.
“Like her 2012 ‘MDNA’ tour, where she played 88 dates in places including Europe, South America and Asia, Madge will be travelling the world. Once the new record is finished she can concentrate on the concerts.”
Despite already having nine huge tours under her belt, the 56-year-old singer wants to “push boundaries” and offer something new with her 2015 gigs.
The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Madonna knows that in order to stay relevant she has to keep reinventing herself and push boundaries.
“The new tour will show a side of her that no one has seen before.”
OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder recently revealed he had been working with Madonna on “her best stuff in more than a decade”.
He added: “The tracks I’ve done with her are really hard to explain.”
