Her tour is the most important thing right now. I expect she will give us a great show and along the way she'll sell some MDNA. BTW have you seen the sales of Bruce Springsteen!!! Great reviews, bad selling.
The US of A doesn't appreciate their heroes!!
Bruce Springsteen is selling fairly well and has absolutely no hits. "We Take Care Of Our Own" hasn't entered ANY official chart while Madonna has had 3 songs charting even though none of them has made it big. And Springsteen's selling power hasn't been that huge for many years now. For his standards "Wrecking Ball" is doing pretty well worldwide, still being higher in many countries than MDNA released several weeks later.

it is beyond my comprehension... 653k people will go to her concert and the album sold 456k copies. considering she always performs almost the complete new album and a few oldies, more than 200k will attend a show listening to Mdna songs for the first time.
and they could have had the album for free!
Many people didn't redeem the album...
Not necessarily. Many could have bought their tickets in traditional outlets instead of ordering online, I guess.
Sad news for haters, while you are busy trying to bring Madonna down, she's gonna generate around $500m this year.
Now, who owns the throne
You are the only hater here if this type of comment is all you can come up with.
Not to mention how off topic that is!

Of course all these statements are false, alek always artificially inflates figures. In Japan sales went down from 5,209 to 4,586 and in most of European countries the album slid down the charts so why would the sales be the same?

39 (38) MDNA

Probably not yet as last week she was at roughly 95,5k so I doubt she sold 4,5 this week alone.

You've been repeating it for months now. We get your point.

What do you mean with "let's hope the waiting will be worthy"? Madonna by that time will be on tour....not chance of promo or something, it's not like a live video (which is nothing else that a way to mask her lazyness to shoot a real video)could do something.
I think if they release this third single simultaneously around the world with the live video accompanying it by release´s time , maybe there´s a chance to create a buzz and consequently generate interest for it (the chances are bigger depending on the chosen song and the quality of the video/performance).
Especially because the tour will have started and the press/media will be all over it.
Let´s see how this will be handled...
There definitely won't be a simultaneaous release around the world because "Girl Gone Wild" is only now being released in the UK and Ireland. The physical singles was just made available and VH1 is starting to play the video.
