Madonna announces historic free concert in Brazil as final Celebration Tour show

Madonna knows "the power of good-bye."

On Monday, the Queen of Pop, 65, announced that she will perform a historic free concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on May 4 at Copacabana Beach for her final Celebration Tour show.

Sponsored by Itau Apresenta, the concert "will be free of charge as a thank you to her fans for celebration more than four decades of her music over the course of the epic global run of the tour" and will be broadcast live on TV Globo, per a press release. The show will be her first in Brazil since 2012.

There are no tickets required for the event, which will take place in front of the Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel, and entry will be available on a first-come first-serve basis.

Before heading to Brazil, Madonna is set to perform in Dallas before making stops in Houston, Atlanta, Austin and more. She will also take the stage in Miami for three nights in Miami at the Kaseya Center (April 6-9) and will play at Palacio De Los Deportes in Mexico City for five nights.

The Material Girl kicked off her long-awaited Celebration Tour at London's O2 Arena in October with an electrifying two-hour set where she opened up about her road back to the stage after her hospitalization last year following a serious bacterial infection.

"I didn't think I was gonna make it. Neither did my doctors. That's why I woke up with all of my children sitting around me," Madonna said of her kids Lourdes, 27, Rocco, 23, David, 18, Mercy, 18, and twins Stella and Estere, 11. "But the angels were protecting me, and my children were there. And my children always save me every time."

Earlier this month, she opened up about the toll the tour was taking on her.

"This show every night is not really so hard on me physically. It's hard on me emotionally because I'm really telling you the story of my life. My heart is on my sleeve," Madonna said. "I've fallen off a lot of horses and broken a lot of bones ... but nothing can stop me."

The "Ray of Light" artist referenced her health scare last summer, calling it a "near-death experience" and revealed that the "first word" she said was "No" when she woke up from an induced coma after four days.

"I'm pretty sure that was God saying to me, 'Do you want to come? Want to come up with me? No,'" Madonna continued, drawing laughs from the audience.

Later, she recalled a conversation she had with her longtime manager, Guy Oseary, while she was in the hospital.

"He said, 'Well, when do you think you want to go back on tour?' I took the oxygen out of my nose. I looked at him, and I said, 'in two f---ing months!" Madonna said. "I just said it. Sometimes you just have to say s--- [and] put it out in the universe. And it happens."
