The reporting in the week or so since the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao announcement has highlighted how expensive tickets to the bout are on the secondary market, where tickets are being listed in the thousands of dollars. However, while the big numbers get all the news, there often isn't much context. What does it mean to be really pricey?
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!

Even if you didn't watch the awards ceremony this past Sunday, you may have heard about Lady Gaga's performance of a medley of songs from "The Sound of Music," including "The Hills Are Alive," "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss," and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain."
