Madonna to stage residency at London Palladium for most intimate gigs in years

Madonna is set to prove she is still in Vogue, with a new tour including several gigs at the London Palladium.

The Queen of Pop, 60, is expected to unveil a mini-residency at the world-famous theatre, with tickets likely to sell out in minutes.

A source said: “It’s going to be the hottest ticket in town for years.”

The 2,000-seat shows will be some of Madonna’s most intimate, with the Like A Prayer singer usually performing at huge arenas.

It is not yet known what other venues will feature on the tour.

Her last tour was the £120mil­­lion-plus-grossing Rebel Heart, which started in September 2015 – months after she took a tumble off the stage at the Brits.

Madonna recently said of her live shows: “I’ve done so many – world tours, stadiums, sports arenas… I feel like I have to reinvent that too.”

She is making a comeback, with her 14th album, Madame X, due out on June 14. And she was in London recently to debut the video for new song Medellin.

In it, Madge writhes on a bed with Colombian singer Maluma, who, at 25, is 35 years’ her junior – before licking his toes.

Maluma said last week the mum-of-six had “a very special look in her eyes” and had urged him to spice up proceedings.

He said: “She wanted me to perform in the sexiest way possible.

“She said, ‘You are sensuality. Try to do it as if you had the woman of your dreams in front of you.’”

Madonna, who lives in Lisbon, unveiled the steamy video during a live-streamed event, hosted by DJ Trevor Nelson.

She wore stockings, a bodysuit and an eye-patch – and carried a horsewhip – for the MTV show, attended by fans from all around the world.
