Such timing - barely a month before she begins her much-hyped international concert tour, Madonna's latest album MDNA has dropped from the top 50 music charts this week. On Amazon.com, the album is at number 63, while on iTunes it's a dismal number 250. "The tour will go on without a promotional tool or a song on the radio. It's not the best way to do things," says Forbes magazine. Perhaps this calls for a rethink of the set list for her sold-out shows, making sure it's not heavy with tracks from the new album.
As per Madonna and her manager's non-traditional promotional campaign, a few numbers at the opening MDNA Tour show in Tel Aviv on May 31st are to be filmed and used for more promo.
Should Madonna's tour setlist consist of 90% MDNA tracks like her previous tours promoting new albums, or should she stick to classics since the public hasn't latched onto MDNA?
