Rochester Hills Material Girl Announces Nov. 8 Detroit Concert Date

Pre-sale tickets for Madonna's Joe Louis Arena show go on sale today.

Madonna, the music superstar who lived her teen-age years in Rochester Hills, will perform for a hometown crowd this year after all.

Her worldwide tour will stop Nov. 8 at Joe Louis Arena. Tickets go on sale March 19 to the general public, though a special ticket presale for fans begins this morning at 10 a.m. via Madonna.com. Tickets are $48-$358.

The world tour kicks off May 29 in Tel Aviv; the first U.S. date is Aug. 28 in Philadelphia.

The Detroit stop was announced Monday. Last month, the and grad was when the concert tour sites were originally announced. The tour follows Madonna's Super Bowl halftime show performance, one in which she admitted to channeling her inner Adams cheerleader self.

In an interview with NFL Network's Rich Eisen before the Super Bowl, Madonna reminisced about her Highlander days.

"I think it was being a cheerleader that really got the showgirl bug inside of me," Madonna said. "I really liked choreographing all of the pom pom routines. I liked the halftime because we got to get out there and do our thing."

Our daughter Brenda and Donna Ciccone were on the same stage when they were both in a Talent Show at West Junior High. I remember the lights going dark and watching Donna and some other dancers come on stage with glittery, skimpy outfits.
