MADONNA ANNOUNCES VERY SPECIAL GUESTS
LMFAO AND MARTIN SOLVEIG

 HYDE PARK – 17th JULY

London Wednesday 28th March, 2012 - The Madonna dance party keeps getting bigger. Following their exuberant appearance at the Bridgestone Super Bowl halftime show, LMFAO is taking their party rock anthems on the road and will join the line-up when Madonna performs for one night only at London’s Hyde Park. Also just confirmed, special guest Martin Solveig.

With confirmed sell outs and multiple show announcements throughout Europe and North America, Madonna’s 2012 World Tour is set to begin May 29th in Tel Aviv and will stop in 26 European cities before starting in North America in August followed by a return visit to South American as well as Australia where she has not performed in 20 years.

“MDNA” Madonna’s 12th studio album released Monday of this week is #1 on Itunes in over 40 countries. With brilliant reviews coming in throughout the world....The album should be the spine of an incredible live show – just what her army of followers will want to hear.” - THE SUN

Still the Queen of Pop…Madonna punches out younger rivals.”- LONDON TIMES

Madonna is back at her absolute best with the biggest all out dance album she’s ever made.” - THE DAILY STAR

Global sales for LMFAO’s sophomore album Sorry For Party Rocking (Party Rock/will.i.am/Cherrytree /Interscope) have now surpassed two million units. The album has produced two #1 singles, “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy And I Know It,” while the third single “Sorry For Party Rocking” is climbing the Top 40 radio charts. The video for “Sorry For Party Rocking” premiered on E! last week and already has over 9 million views on VEVO. The video features LMFAO and the party rock crew in full on house party mode.

LMFAO’s ”Party Rock Anthem” has surpassed  10 million units in total sales worldwide!  “Party Rock Anthem” was the #2 top selling song of 2011 on iTunes in the U.S. behind Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” and it was the #1 selling song on iTunes in the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden.  The video has seen over 360 million views on VEVO and was featured by KIA in their award winning KIA Hamster advertising campaign.

It was just one record that catapulted Martin Solveig from a well-respected DJ into one of the most exciting producers and performers in the world. ‘Hello’ has now sold over 2 million copies and earned the man global recognition, achieving platinum status in America, Italy, Germany and Austria, as well as hitting twice platinum in Canada and in Australia... His music videos are renowned as by far the best in their class and his performances continue to electrify audiences in every corner of the globe. All this combined with his super original Smash video series, clocking up hundreds of millions of views on Youtube makes him the one of the most distinguished electronic artists in the world.

With Solveig’s finesse for producing music so easily accessible came the demand from the biggest names in music, and right at the front was most successful female recording artist of all time - Madonna. The latter half of 2011 saw Martin Solveig achieve what is surely every pop producer's dream, immersing himself in the production of Madonna’s 12th studio album, MDNA. The lead single from said album, ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’, a Solveig produced highlight, is just one of several cuts that will surely cement the Frenchman as a solid production force in an industry that seems intent on exploding. Dance music meets pop is well and truly here, and Martin Solveig is all over it.

Madonna’s 2012 tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring. Full list of dates and venues follow.
