MACAU, Monday, October 12, 2015 – The global pop icon Madonna is set to excite and delight Asia’s music fans at Studio City’s awe-inspiring Studio City Event Center (“SCEC”) when she brings her ‘Rebel Heart Tour’ to Macau as part of a thrilling line-up of international concerts. Tickets for both performances go on sale Friday, October 16, 2015 at 11am. This will be the first time fans will get to see and enjoy Madonna live in concert in Macau.
The tour, which kicked off with 2 sold-out shows in Montreal and 3 sold-out shows in New York, is one of the most impressive and successful shows in the world. The Montreal Gazette proclaimed “in a spare-no-expense theatrical spectacle that artfully flowed from showstopper to showstopper, Madonna proved once again that she doesn’t just crave the spotlight — she owns it;” and Associated Press raved "Pole dancers dressed like nuns, Mike Tyson and nonstop theatrics. Welcome to the church of Madonna.”
“The Studio City Event Center is already proving to be an important live entertainment venue attracting the world’s biggest artists and it will be the most intimate venue Madonna performs in during this tour,” said Studio City President Mr. JD Clayton.
“With only 5,000 seats, theater-quality acoustics and exclusive seating options, including VIP suites and Club Lounge seating, the skillfully designed space provides audiences an unmatched atmosphere of real intimacy with the performers, both in terms of physical closeness to the artists and quality of music delivery. We firmly believe that Studio City Event Center will greatly enhance Macau’s appeal as an increasingly important entertainment destination in Asia.”
SCEC is a 5,000-seat multi-purpose entertainment complex, with a state-of-the-art infrastructure designed to host exciting world-class live concerts, theatrical and top sports events, in addition to award shows and other special gatherings. It represents just one facet of a host of world-class entertainment offerings to be found at Hollywood-themed Studio City, which will open on October 27, 2015, and is primed to establish itself as Asia’s Entertainment Capital and take Macau’s entertainment destination proposition to unprecedented new levels.
