She'll kick off the Rebel Heart tour in Miami on August 29 and wrap in Glasgow, Scotland on December 20. Concerts in Australia and Asia will be announced at a later date. This will be Madonna's first tour since her 2012 MDNA run, which grossed 300 million dollars. Suge Knight was in a Los Angeles court again on Monday (March 02). The rap mogul spoke on his own behalf, telling a judge he was not receiving proper medical care while in jail.
