There are a lot of songs that are created and then later appropriated for movies. "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly was not one of those songs. Written for the 1996 live action/Looney Tunes mash-up "Space Jam," the song help propel the movie into the box-office stratosphere. It also earned a life of its own outside the movie, and in addition won two Grammy Awards for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best Rhythm & Blues Song.

Madonna Announces U.S. Tour Dates

Madonna

Have you missed Madonna? Then you won't have to wait much longer to see her on tour again. The Queen of Pop has announced a new tour in support of her latest album, Rebel Heart, which will be released in North America on Tuesday, March 10. A globe-spanning schedule has been mapped out, including plenty of dates in the United States. In addition to those concerts, Madonna will tour Canada, as well as Germany, Italy, Spain, the U.K. and many other European countries. Tickets will begin to go on sale next Monday, March 9.

Madonna's last tour, the MDNA Tour in 2012, was the 12th biggest concert tour of that year here at TicketNetwork.com*. It was also the third largest pop tour of 2012 on our site, beat out only by One Direction, Justin Bieber, and Big Time Rush. That's clearly a testament to the staying power Madonna has enjoyed throughout the years. Judging by the number one dance chart position of Rebel Heart's lead single, "Living for Love," fans are ready for more Madonna. Soon they'll get their opportunity to see her perform live!
