The ‘Frozen’ hitmaker took to Instagram to officially announce the tour, recruiting her famous pals, including comedian Amy Schumer, actor Jack Black, rapper Lil Wayne and Diplo, to help her out.

In the clip, Schumer says: “Madonna, I dare you to do a world tour and play your greatest motherf****** hits.”

Madonna asked her: “Four decades, as in 40 years?”

After asking if everyone around the table will come to the tour, she agreed: “F***, yeah!”

Madonna – who first entered the US Billboard Hot 100 with 1983’s ‘Holiday’ – admitted last summer that she is desperate to get back out on the road again.

She said at the time: “I want to go on tour again. I’m a creature of the stage. That’s my happy place.”

Last August, Madonna became the first female artist to earn Billboard 200 top 10 albums in each decade since the 1980s after her remix compilation ‘Finally Enough Love’ debuted at number eight in the chart.

The ‘Vogue’ singer registered her first top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart in October 1984 with her self-titled record, which went on to peak at number eight.
