Madonna has announced the addition of eight more dates to the second leg of her US tour scheduled for the upcoming winter season. Of note is a special show in Nashville on December 22, where she plans to draw attention to Tennessee‘s recent spate of bills targeting the LGBTQ+ community.

The new dates, spanning December and January, will feature a mix of repeat visits to cities where Madonna has already performed earlier in 2023 (such as New York City and Los Angeles) as well as entirely new cities on the “Celebration Tour” circuit, such as Philadelphia, Palm Springs and Sacramento.

The 64-year-old has recently announced eight new dates for her 2023-24 tour, including shows in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Nashville, Palm Springs, Sacramento, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

For the Nashville concert, which is set to take place at the Bridgestone Arena, Madonna has pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds to an organization that supports trans rights, though she hasn’t specified which organization or the exact percentage of the donation.

She’s drawing attention to the state of Tennessee’s recent legislation, which has been criticized for its negative impact on the LGBTQ+ community, particularly regarding drag performances. In a statement, Madonna expressed her belief that these laws make America unsafe for the most vulnerable citizens, especially trans women of color. Bob the Drag Queen, also known as Caldwell Tidicue, is Madonna’s opening act for the entire global tour.
