Tickets for Madonna’s huge 40th anniversary tour went on sale this morning (January 20) with fans taking to social media to share their reactions.

Announced earlier this week, Madonna is due to kick off the North American leg of her ‘Celebration Tour’ in July, before the European run begins in October at London’s O2.

Madonna already added one additional date at London’s O2 Arena following “overwhelming demand” during the presale and this morning, a third show was added for October 17. In total, 15 extra shows have already been added to the run.

Tickets are available here (UK) and here (North America).

However, several fans took to social media to complain about the price of Madonna tickets.

In the digital queue for Madonna tickets even though there’s no hope that a) any will be available by the time I get let in and b) that I’ll be prepared to pay the ticket price. #MadonnaCelebrationTour

The price of the tickets for a decent seat at the O2 in London are crazy!!

I expected Madonna to be expensive but I just can’t justify £432 for a standing ticket… Or even £276 for a Floor Seat #celebrationtour pic.twitter.com/VTUznd2OSY

I mean, it’s the most expensive ticket I have ever paid for a concert – EVER. But it’s a once in a lifetime gig, right? RIGHT? I don’t love any female artist as much as I love @Madonna. So, yeah, very lucky to have just got a London ticket. Please be good #Madonna! #Celebration pic.twitter.com/bFwABCdHZs
