Madonna’s Tour Is a Cause for Celebration: Inside Her Final Night at LA’s Forum With Cardi B & More

On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith ventured to the final date of Madonna‘s five-night stint at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, Calif., for her Celebration Tour.

It was Keith’s second time seeing the show, after attending opening night in London, and Katie’s first — and it was our second Pop Shop field trip to a Madonna show after venturing to her Madame X Tour in November 2019.

What we encountered was a truly 360-degree experience, as we sat between the main stage and the beginning of the catwalk and looked in every conceivable direction to take in the magnificent production surrounding us. And you can hear all about our experience — which includes cameos from Katy Perry, Cardi B, Rosie O’Donnell and more — by listening to this week’s episode below.
