View Comments(0)

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!

Wanting a taste of freedom, the llamas took off on the lam. The pair, mother and son, darted across city streets narrowly evading capture from the arsenal of law enforcement personal trying to corral them. Finally, after a few hours on the loose, both llamas were caught, but not before becoming a trending topic in the Twittersphere.

A Look Back at the non-stop Career of Ricky Martin

Born to an accountant and psychologist in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1971, Ricky Martin showed he possessed singing and acting talent from a young age. Martin began singing at age six, often reciting songs from groups such as Menudo, Led Zeppelin, and Journey, using wooden kitchen spoons as microphones. When Martin was nine, his father took him to a commercial audition and over the next year and a half Martin starred in eleven Puerto Rican television commercials for products such as toothpaste, fast food chains, and soft drinks.

After finding a small amount of fame for his commercial work, Martin auditioned for the Puerto Rican boy band Menudo, ironically one of bands he sang to when he was younger. Although band executives were impressed by his skills, they deemed him too short to become a member of the band. However, determined to make the cut he went back for another audition. This time the executives were so impressed that his height was no longer an issue. Martin became a part of the band at age 13 and would go on to record 11 albums with the group before he left in 1989.
