With a new Warner Bros. album, “Hard Candy,” due April 28, Madonna has scheduled a few club dates to promote the album as she has done for previous album releases, singing to backing tracks. However, according to her tour promoter Live Nation, there are no tour plans at this time.

The Material Girl is expected to appear in New York on April 28, Paris on May 6, and London on May 10. Her latest single, “4 Minutes,” featuresTimberland and Justin Timberlake.

Last year, Madonna signed a groundbreaking 10-year, $120 million deal with Live Nation’s new Artist Nation division that includes three albums, four tours, merchandise, digital rights, fan clubs and all artistic revenues sources except film and books. “Hard Candy” is the last album under her expiring deal with Warner Music.
