Tickets for the Saturday edition of the two-day music and cultural event are also now sold out.”

“The community called loud and clear for an appearance by Madonna at Pride Island for WorldPride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising,” NYC Pride Executive Director Chris Frederick continued in a statement. “I’m thrilled to report that Madonna and WorldPride NYC delivered on that call.
