Pop icon Madonna is reportedly planning a massive 40th anniversary tour in partnership with her concert promotion partner and producer, Live Nation, and music manager, Guy Oseary.

The tour, which is set to take place later this year, will be a career retrospective, featuring a compilation of her biggest hits across four decades of music.

According to sources, the tour will be Madonna's first ever retrospective and will include a multi-night run at the O2 in London. One executive familiar with her plans told Billboard, "It's going to be the biggest tour she's ever done."

The tour is expected to include both stadium and arena dates, as well as over-the-top production that will deliver both "Material Girl" kitsch and occasionally outrageous sex appeal with plenty of show-stopping moments made for social media.

The tour news comes just months after Madonna released her career-spanning compilation album, "Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones," which spans her entire dance club career and features remixes by top producers, including 20 rare recordings officially released for the first time.

In 2021, Madonna signed a deal with Warner Music Group for an "extensive, multi-year series of catalog releases that will revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon."

Madonna last toured in 2019 and early 2020 on her Madame X tour, a theater run that was plagued by production delays and Madonna's recurring hip and knee injuries.

While the Madame X tour earned strong critical reviews, its habitually late start time often angered ticket holders and prompted two class actions lawsuits from fans.

When it comes to choosing her nightly set list for this new tour, Madonna will have no shortage of songs to choose from with 57 titles charting on the Billboard Hot 100, 38 top 10 hits and 12 No. 1s, including 1990's "Vogue" and 2000's "Music," released a decade apart and each spending 24 weeks on the Hot 100.

Madonna's "Borderline" from 1984 spent 30 weeks on the Hot 100. She followed that impressive feat a decade later with the ballad "Take a Bow," which held the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 for seven weeks.

Madonna's 2008-2009 Sticky and Sweet Tour is the highest grossing tour by a female artist ever, according to Billboard Boxscore, netting $407 million.

Her most recent Madame X theater run grossed $36.4 million with 124,655 ticket sold. Despite the recent announcement, reps for Madonna could not be reached for comment at the time of publishing. This is a highly anticipated event, and fans are eagerly waiting for more details.
