No self-respecting pop music fan should be shocked at the news that Madonna‘s upcoming world is sold out. In fact, the shows sold so well and so quickly that second nights were added in several markets, such as Minneapolis, Houston and Las Vegas. That’s what we call back by popular demand. But demand for Madge extends beyond her native U.S. The global demand is intense.

Oh No They Didn’t! posted the news of the sell outs and additional dates across the U.S. and abroad. Madge fans are chomping at the bit to hear songs from ‘MDNA’ live, as well as the classics like ‘Vogue,’ ‘Express Yourself’ and ‘Like a Virgin.’

We’ve gotta hand it to Madge. The way she handled the pre-publicity for ‘MDNA’ is nothing short of brilliant. From her directorial debut ‘W.E.’ to her address of the Lady Gaga question – which PopCrush still thinks laid the foundation for a duet down the road between these Italian mega blondes — to the 2012 Super Bowl performance to the actual music on ‘MDNA,’ Madge has been firing on all cylinders and is in a groove. She can never be topped. Ever.

In other Madge tour good news – yes, there’s more — her Abu Dhabi show is already the most popular event ever in the Middle Eastern city.

All 22,000 tickets to her show at Yas Arena on June 3 sold out within two hours. It’s the first time Madge has ever performed in the region, so promoters were expecting a sell out.

“Her fan reaction has been overwhelming and with immediate sell out, Madonna’s show in Abu Dhabi now holds the record for the most popular event we have ever staged,” a spokesman for Flash Entertainment said. Fans lined up on Monday morning (Feb. 27) waiting for counters to open at the Virgin Megastore in the Mall of the Emirates and the Dubai Mall. Staff set out bean bags and chairs for those who showed up on the early tip.

A second Madge show is set for June 4 in Abu Dhabi. There’s overwhelming fan demand for Madge, even in the Middle East.
