I would mention this, but I don't think I will believe Madonna is touring until she is on Australian soil walking onto a big brightly-coloured stage, okay?! Not even releasing tickets (which I soooo hope to get btw, duh!) will suffice because plenty of artists have reneged even after tickets going on sale.
So, yes, I remain hopeful that we will get to see her show - although this idea of a "pared back" concert is a load of bull - but... I remain pessimistic. Madonna has a knack of doing that to Australian fans.
