US leg of the MDNA Tour almost sold out
Madonna has sold 653,000 tickets to the 43 North American dates on her upcoming concert tour, an executive with concert promoter Live Nation Entertainment Inc. said, putting it on track to be one of the top-grossing outings on record.

In a telephone interview with The Wall Street Journal, Live Nation head of global touring Arthur Fogel said…

About 30,000 tickets remain available for the tour’s 36 U.S. shows. Most of those are either single tickets or seats that are set aside for disabled concertgoers.
We are inches from sellout everywhere.

Tickets for U.S. dates went on sale in mid-February and range in price from around $45 to more than $350. Some premium-priced ticket packages run $600 per person.

Mr. Fogel added….

Around 30% of ticket buyers had signed up for a free copy of the album and the acceptance rate was on the high end for such offers.

Of the tickets sold in North America, Mr. Fogel said, 500,000 were in the U.S. Those free-album offers fueled a healthy first week for “MDNA,” according to Nielsen SoundScan, which reported 359,000 copies sold in the U.S.

Mr. Fogel said that between 200,000 and 250,000 of those sales represented albums given away with concert tickets.

Madonna’s former nanny speaks out
Ms Jacobsen was nanny to Madonna’s son David Banda for 18 months after the singer adopted the little boy from Malawi four years ago.

Now back in her native Australia, Ms Jacobsen looks back on the surreal experience of a globe-trotting life with Madonna that saw entertained in Indian palaces, go to remote islands accessible only by seaplane and join the pop queen’s world tour for six months.

It’s great to look back on now and reflect on. When you’re living in the bubble, it’s a lot more daunting. It was an amazing experience.

[Madonna] was a great boss and I mean it was obviously quite a full-on experience. She was fantastic to work for and a big motivation for me. She’s very much a loving mother.
I saw a different side to her on a personal note, how hard she works. I watched this girl power: you can do anything you want and there is no such thing as the word no. There is a way to get around that word at every opportunity.
