From the above statistics we can easily find the popularity of this album. The good news for the fans of Madoona is that due to its popularity of Hard Candy and for the sake of her loving friend has announced a world tour that is going to begin from Millenium Stadium, Cardiff.
The album has an overall hip-hop/pop feel, while remaining a pop/dance record at heart. The Sun quoted a source as saying:
“It’s not all hip-hop though, there are a lot of producers from a lot of genres in there. It could be her most ambitious project yet.”
Madonna has gone on the record many times in the last month, stating that she will indeed embark on a fall tour to go with the album. Possible dates leaked on May 7, 2008, stating that the tour would begin on August 23, 2008 in Cardiff, Wales. She will be doing several small performances to promote the album on the Hard Candy Promo Tour.

Hi tony tapwater, I bet you wouldn't mind a night with the "deluded 40 something who still thinks she looks good without hardly any clothes on" do I detect a hint of jealousy??? I think she looks brilliant, and I bet you look like the back end of a bus
This album is brilliant. Ok...the sound she has put out isn't a new or one of her re-invention types as usual...but i think its exactly what was expected of Madonna - the pop star - not hip-hop or r n b musician - so for someone like this, who is also 50 in August to put out such fresh, and catchy music is pretty damn good! and i know she doesn't have the best voice either...but she CAN actually sing tho. It's not like she sounds like that muppet Britney Spears is it. :) Go Madge. HARD CANDY DESERVES TO STAY AT NO.1.
i fink atleast madonna can sing unlyk u lot!!! bill and ben
Michael; Chicago, IlI, honestly, love the album! I do hate however when I went to purchase it on Itunes many people commented on how she is about to be 50 and is singing music like this. Although Mick Jagger and The Rollingstones, Cher, and a few other pop icons like the those two who are over 60 and are performing like their 20! I love this new album! My particular favorites are; Give It 2 Me, Miles Away, Devil Wouldn't Recogize you, Heartbeat, and Beat Goes On!! In conclusion I believe it will do a lot better than people predict and much better than Mariah Carey's new album!!!
What do you call a 50-year-old woman who releases her 11th big smash hit studio album and goes on tour to play for close to forty sold out stadiums throughout the world?
Or just Madonna.
The unstoppable pop icon Madonna has announced the dates for her brand new world tour to promote her new big-selling album Hard Candy. The travelling super star's parade kicks off at the Cardiff Millennium Stadium in Wales on 23 August 2008, then onto the continent with shows in:
- Nice at Stade Charles Ehrmann on 26 August
- Berlin at Olympic Stadium on 28 August
- Amsterdam Arena on 2 September
- Dusseldorf LTU Arena on 4 September
- Rome Olympic Stadium on 6 September
- Frankfurt Commerzbank Arena on 9 September
Madonna will finish up the European leg of Sticky & Sweet with a massive blow-out at London Wembley arena on 11 September and finally at the Stade de France in Paris on 20 September. The tour will then take on the US and Canada before going south for concerts in Mexico and throughout South America.
