Madonna auditions dancers with lover Jesus Luz for another world tour
By 3am's Clemmie Moodie and Danielle Lawler
It seems only five minutes since the end of her last world tour - but Madonna is getting ready to do it all over again.
Instead of putting her feet up with a pack of macrobiotic biccies and a lemon and ginger brew, the star has been road-testing dancers for a gruelling six-month tour. It kicks off late next autumn, when Madge will be 52. And, befitting a middle-aged lady, the theme is "urban street".
Watched by her toyboy Brazilian lover Jesus Luz, 23, the singer held auditions for dancers last week at London club Aura.
She brought along her own DJ, Deejay MissDi, to provide the tunes while she videoed the action on her phone.
Cordoning off an area of the club, a string of dancers performed for the star as she graded each and every one of them, Louie Spence-stylee.
She's nothing if not a perfectionist. And she's no slouch either. Madge's year-long Sticky and Sweet tour finished last September and she's keen to be back on the road.
However, the as-yet-unnamed tour, part of Madonna's £60 million deal with concert promoter Live Nation, is expected to net her in excess of £100million.
Motivation enough for anyone.
We're told: "It's going to be her biggest, most unexpected tour to date. She is going back to her New York City roots, with a street/ hip-hop feel, and wants to make it a physical, danceheavy set of gigs.
"Madonna is in peak condition so the gruelling aspect of life on the road isn't a problem. She also road-tested dancers at her fave London club, and had her lover, Jesus Luz, give his opinion."
The dancers have been told the pay is £50,000 for a six-month run, culminating at London's O2 arena. Sounds great. But if you miss it, there'll be another one along in a few minutes.
