And just days before the big night her team have released the finer details of what it takes to get Madonna show ready.
This year she'll be using Shu Uemura eye-lash curlers - three pairs to be exact, four YSL lipsticks, 180 ear buds (that's a ration of three per night), 200 triangle sponges to apply her make-up and 120 powder puffs.
She's going to have eight major costume changes during the show, as we revealed last month, everyone from Givenchy's Ricardo Tisci to Miu Miu have contributed exclusive designs - and it's going to take five people to get her in and out of them. They, along with the 12 seamstresses on hand for final adjustments.
Madge has also revealed that she's specially sourced 100 pairs of old - fashioned fishnet stockings from everywhere from dance studios world wide to eBay...to wear under the 100 pairs of knee pads she is also taking on the road.
In true Madonna style she'll be revisitng many of her previous incarnations including 'old-school Madonna', 'gypsy Madonna', 'rave Madonna' and this year's 'sweet and sticky' Madonna to name just a few.
It promises to be quite a show!
