Madonna is set to conclude her ‘Celebration’ tour with a free concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at Copacabana Beach. 

The show will take place on May 4, with no tickets required, as a thank you to her fans for celebrating more than four decades of her music during the tour.

It will be the first time Madonna has performed in the country since 2012, and the event is sponsored by Brazilian financial services company Itaú Apresenta. Entry will be on a first-come first-served basis, with the stage to be located in front of the Belmont Copacabana Palace Hotel. The concert will also be broadcasted live on television for those unable to attend.

The artist’s Celebration tour is set to continue this week with shows in the US, in Houston, Texas on Thursday and Friday, before heading to Atlanta, Georgia on April 1.

Madonna was forced to delay the start of her tour after contracting a serious bacterial infection. The tour eventually launched in London in October, with a record six sold-out shows at The O2.

Over 429,000 tickets were sold for the European leg, grossing $77.5m (£61m/€71m).
