- Story Text: In Germany, Madonna fans have camped out overnight to make sure they got tickets for the singer's first public performance in eight years.
Tickets for Madonna's "Drowned World Tour 2001"
went on sale at Berlin's Max-Schmeling-Halle on Friday morning (April 27) for Madonna's concert in Berlin on June 19.
One fan who waited ten hours to buy his two tickets said "I actually managed to get a ticket with this adolescent behaviour of getting in line at Midnight and being one of the first in place."
Tickets cost between 90 ($41.53) and 245 German Marks ($112.9).
The 42-year-old superstar said earlier this month she would return to the stage this summer for a 19-city world tour, her first since 1993's The Girlie Show.
The Drowned World Tour will be the most extravagant stage spectacle of the singer's 17-year career, promoters SFX Entertainment said.
She will be performing material from her latest album "Music", the "Ray of Light" album as well as signature songs from earlier in her career.
The tour starts in Cologne, Germany on June 5 andin Los Angeles three months later on September 9.
