Madonna Will End ‘Celebration Tour’ With Massive Free Show in Brazil

Madonna will play for the biggest crowd of her career in May.

On Monday, the pop legend announced that she’ll conclude her Celebration Tour with a free show at Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on May 4.

The performance marks her first time performing in Brazil since 2012, and is set to be “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,” according to a press release.

The show will take place in front of the Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel, with Brazil’s TV Globo broadcasting the concert live. Fans will not need to acquire tickets.

Copacabana Beach has been the site of several major concerts over the years: Rod Stewart brought out more than 4 million attendees to his show there in 1994; Lenny Kravitz performed for 300,000 in 2005; and the Rolling Stones reportedly drew 1.5 million fans in 2006.

Madonna last visited Brazil in December 2012 for her The MDNA Tour, stopping at venues such as Rio’s Parque dos Atletas, São Paulo’s Estádio do Morumbi, and Porto Alegre’s Estádio Olímpico Monumental.

Madonna opened her Celebration Tour at London’s O2 Arena in London back in October 2023, touring across Europe through December. She kicked off the U.S. leg of her tour in New York City on Dec. 13, with shows scheduled through April 26 — including a five-show run at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes.

“Her voice is still as strong as ever, and she won’t be able to make out with dozens of dancers onstage forever, so now is the perfect time for her celebration,” read a Rolling Stone review of her show in New York.

The tour has had several major guests along the way: In Los Angeles, Kylie Minogue and Cardi B joined her on stage on separate occasions. Madonna performs numerous hits such as “Like a Prayer,” “Hung Up,” “Vogue,” and “Like a Virgin” during the Celebration Tour.
