Here’s a look at some of the top concert offerings happening in the Bay Area for the week of Oct. 31-Nov. 6, highlighted by the return of one of pop music’s greatest icons.
Local fans were starting to get worried that maybe Madonna wouldn’t bring her Madame X Tour to the Bay Area. Thankfully, she finally got around to adding San Francisco dates to the itinerary.
She performs a three-night stand, Nov. 2, 4 and 5, at the lovely Golden Gate Theatre. And what a treat it should be to see this first-tier pop music icon – who usually plays big sports arenas – put on a show in such a comparably intimate venue.
