June 25, 2012, 7:58 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- London 's Hyde Park will be given over to the Material Girl on 17 July as part of her 2012 World Tour. Madonna is only playing two UK dates, so this Hyde Park performance is set to be spectacular and should not be missed.
Madonna needs no introduction. She is the undisputed Queen of Pop selling more than 300 million albums throughout her 29-year career and has enjoyed all the success that comes with scoring a record-breaking 40 number one hits.
Similarly, Madonna's tours are famed for being loud, creative and a little risqué and this tour should not disappoint. The tour will include new tracks from her latest album MDNA as well as all the classics, of which there are far too many to name.
Ticket prices range from £75 to £125 and more information can be found on LondonTown.com.
Because the concert is sure to run late into the evening, LondonTown.com suggests staying in one of the many hotels in London. To make life easier and more affordable, it has secured exclusive discounts at a selection of the capital's best hotels including those around Hyde Park , an area famed for being expensive.
Just as Madonna never disappoints, neither does LondonTown.com. It has chopped rates at the four-star Thistle Marble Arch Hotel by a staggering 91%, so room rates now start at £90 per night. This hotel is just 10 minutes' walk from where Madonna will be taking to the stage. The hotel also has its own bar and restaurant so guests don't need to trawl the streets of London looking for suitable dining.
Option number two from LondonTown.com is the four-star Lancaster London Hotel. Being located just 200 metres from Lancaster Gate tube station means Hyde Park is actually visible from the top-floor executive rooms.

Both hotels are located near to public transport links and main road routes in and out of the capital.
