It’s time to celebrate.
After a many-month delay, Madonna is finally set to bring her career-spanning Celebration Tour to Northern California — with shows scheduled for Feb. 24 at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento and Feb. 27-28 at Chase Center in San Francisco. Showtime is 8:30 p.m. (for all three gigs) and tickets start at $114 (subject to change), ticketmaster.com.
These concerts were originally supposed to happen back in late September and early October, but were postponed after Madonna was hospitalized due to a bacterial infection.
Yet, the singer is apparently feeling much better these days and has been rolling out the big hits for fans in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and other cities already in 2024.
Judging by the set lists we’ve seen, fans should expect to hear such favorites as “Like a Prayer,” “Justify My Love,” “Open Your Heart,” “Burning Up for Your Love,” “Vogue,” “Human Nature,” “Crazy for You” and “Ray of Light” in Sacramento and San Francisco.

Also, Madonna has been both starting and ending her performances on the later side. (For example, she reportedly played from 10:05 p.m. to 12:20 a.m. during her Feb. 5 show in Pittsburgh.) So plan accordingly when booking that babysitter to watch the kids or scheduling those morning meetings for the next day.
Yet, staying up a bit later than (perhaps) usual will likely be well worth it if it means getting to see Madonna — one of the most important and influential pop stars of all time — in concert.
