Another image captured the 64-year-old’s body from a separate angle of the pop sensation sitting on a chair with her microphone in hand.

"Come join the party! 🎉💃🏼🎵🕺🏾🎤," the "Like a Virgin" vocalist announced on Tuesday, January 17, following months of speculation about the covert series.

Not only will Madonna be performing "as many songs as possible" throughout the highly-anticipated show, she will also be wearing "updated versions" of her iconic cone bra and other unforgettable designer outfits from the singer's past, as OK! previously reported.

"Madonna will be reflecting on her entire career in the tour and that won’t just be the music — it will be the clothes too," a source spilled back in March of the generational idol.

"She has been a trailblazer with her fashion and is getting a lot of her designer friends involved in helping her," the insider added.

Madonna has let her fans in on the fun, as she recently shared photos from a trip to her storage archives with Jean Paul Gaultier in preparation for her upcoming tour.
