The Madonna 2012 World Tour was announced yesterday by Live Nation, just one day after the legendary singer performed at halftime of Super Bowl XLVI, in front of the largest television audience in American history. My personal opinions about the NFL's selection of halftime performers over the past decade aside, I'm happy that Madonna is bringing her tour to Charlotte on November 15, to Time Warner Cable Arena. Major tours such as this have a habit of skipping over Charlotte. It should be noted, however, that Charlotte is one of only two Southeastern U.S. stops of the 26 North American cities on this tour--the other being Atlanta two days later, which is when the tour concludes (though it's common for these tours to add dates and cities midway).

The 2012 World Tour kicks off May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel (there are 26 European cities on the tour as well) before beginning its North American run in late August. The tickets for the Charlotte stop go on sale to the general public March 5 through Ticketmaster.com. If you're a member of Madonna's Icon fan club or are interested in VIP packages, you can buy tickets nearly a week earlier beginning February 28.

Does anyone know when's the last time Madonna performed in Charlotte? Or is this her first concert here?
