After a whirwind of sellouts, Madonna has made more changes to her European tour itinerary. Two concerts have been cancelled on the summer 2009 extension of her Sticky & Sweet Tour, while more than 10 new shows have been added since the outing was announced in January.

Cancelled dates are July 8 in Manchester, ENG, and July 28 in Hamburg, GER. The Manchester show on July 7 is still on the books; there is no other show planned for Hamburg. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

To fill the void left by the Hamburg show, the performer’s Oslo, NOR, show originally scheduled for July 29 has been moved up a day to July 28. Tickets for July 29 will be honored on the new date. The July 30 performance in Oslo is still a go.

Tour producer Live Nation did not respond to inquiries about the cancellations or the date change.

Madonna launched her Stick & Sweet Tour in 2008, making this the first time the Queen of Pop has extended a tour for a second year. The European jaunt was originally projected at 24 or 25 total dates, but currently stands at 27.

Recent additions to the itinerary include July 9 at the Bercy in Paris, FRA, and July 25 at Recinto de la Feria de Zaragoza in Zaragoza, SPA. The original summer 2009 itinerary has also been extended with four new shows late in August, running from August 22 at Kincsem Park in Budapest, HUN, through August 29 at Vasil Levski Stadium in Sofia, BUL.
