Madonna: Plenty of Seats Available at All Prices for Three New York Shows


I keep getting tweets and emails from Madonna fans who’ve seen big “bald spots” at her Rebel Heart shows.

Well, Madison Square Garden and the Barclays Center are going to look a lot like the top of my own head starting tonight. That is, unless StubHub can unload the hundreds of seats they have in their inventories.

Seats for all three shows are aplenty, and at reasonable prices, in all sections. They are also available in quantities. Want to take seven or eight people? You can, and you can sit anywhere.

Secondary market ticket sellers obviously overestimated the demand for Rebel Heart seats. Maybe there will be a big walk up business. I’d go tonight, but I want to see Eliot Sumner at Pianos in the Lower East Side.

If you do go to a Madonna show, and see huge “bald spots,” please send pictures to
