Madonna announces free concert in Copacabana

Now the organizer has confirmed the rumors: Madonna is scheduled to perform on the beach in Rio de Janeiro - with free entry. It would be the biggest concert of her career.

The rumor mill has been cooking in Brazil for several weeks, and now the organizer has confirmed the reports: Madonna will perform on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro.

“Brazil, I’m coming soon,” said the singer in a video published by the organizer.

According to consistent Brazilian media reports, Madonna is scheduled to give a free concert in Rio de Janeiro on May 4th as part of her world tour. However, nothing more is known about the performance, the organizer plans to announce further information in a press conference on Monday.

The event is backed by Itaú Unibanco, a Brazilian bank that is celebrating its centenary with the appearance. Madonna is one of the credit institution’s advertising faces.

At the beginning of the month, the first Brazilian media speculated about a possible appearance by Madonna. Shortly after the rumors broke, prices for hotel rooms on the concert weekend skyrocketed.

Overnight stays in rooms with a view of Copacabana Beach – and therefore at least parts of the concert – have suddenly more than tripled, as the Brazilian daily newspaper “Folha de São Paulo” reports.

In the past, the Rolling Stones and Lenny Kravitz, among others, have given free concerts at Copacabana, sometimes attended by more than a million fans.

According to Guinness World Records, the largest concert in the world also took place on the beach in the Brazilian metropolis: 4.2 million people are said to have come to a free concert by Rod Stewart on New Year’s Eve 1994 – although it is unclear how many wanted to see Stewart and how many came to the beach for the fireworks.

Madonna announces she will perform a historic free concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Saturday, May 4th at the majestic Copacabana Beach as the culminaton of her universally praised The Celebration Tour which has been one of the most buzzed about tours of the year.

The event will be her biggest gig yet, an unforgettable concert in one of the world’s most beautiul settings. The show will be free of charge as a thank you to her fans for celebrating more than four decades of her music over the course of the epic global run of the tour.

It will also mark the best-selling female recording artist of all time first show in Brazil since 2012. No tickets are required for the event, entrance will be applied on a first come first serve basis the day of the event at Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel. This unforgetable, one time event and world’s biggest dancefloor will be broadcast live on TV Globo.

The world got a first glimpse of the highly-anticipated tour this past October when the tour launched in London with a record six sold out shows at The O2. Moving across 14 countries the show has not only received rave reviews by fans and critics but is a testimant to Madonna’s groundbreaking four decade long career and ongoing impact on culture.

The Celebration Tour continues tonight with the second of two shows in Dallas before making stops in Houston, Atlanta, Austin and more. The upcoming dates also include 3 nights in Miami at the Kaseya Center (April 6th, 7th and 9th) and a phenominal 5 nights at Palacio De Los Deportes in Mexico City.

The Celebration Tour is a one-of-a-kind experience with special guest Bob the Drag Queen a.k.a. Caldwell Tidicue across all dates on the global tour.
