Madonna considers split with Warner Bros
Tour promoter Live Nation are aiming to tempt Madonna away from the only record label she has ever been signed to, with a deal that would encompass her recordings, touring, merchandise and other business needs. As the world’s biggest live event promoter, Live Nation has produced Madonna’s last three world tours, but is hoping to form longer lasting business relations with artists. Live Nation are rumoured to be offering a deal worth $180 million. However Madonna’s current label, Warner Music Group is unlikely to give up her contract easily. She currently has two more albums due on her WMG contract and a spokeswoman for the company said they hope to continue working with her as she is “worshipped and respected as a great artist in the company”.
