Madonna is seen out in multicolored caftan ahead of the kickoff show of her Madame X theatrical concert tour in New York

She's one of the bestselling performers of all time, and she's about to embark upon her ELEVENTH concert tour around the world.

Pop superstar Madonna was seen accompanied by imposing bodyguards on the streets of New York on Tuesday evening in a loud, African-inspired Temperley London caftan and black Youssef Lahlou fedora.

Tuesday night marks the kickoff show of her seven-month, 92-show theatrical concert tour in support of her latest album, Madame X.

The Vogue hitmaker, 61, donned a black, yellow and white duster of sorts for the outing, which featured a busy floral print down the front and geometric patterns along the hems and sleeves.

She sported a black wicker fedora hat with ribbon, and enormous reflective sunshades designed by her friend Stella McCartney.

The Desperately Seeking Susan star was in black tights, and she wore fluffy Ugg Fuzz Yeah Slides on her feet. 

She had gold jewelry on her wrist and around her neck, and wore her trademark blond hair down underneath the Youssef Lahlou hat.

The tour did not start off in the most professional fashion as the show at the Bam Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn as the pop icon did not hit the stage until 11pm with the show ending after 1am.

Fans are also not allowed to have their phones in the theater. 

Madonna is starting a different type of tour in support of Madame X, her fourteenth studio album: instead of a typical arena or stadium tour for a star of her stature, she will be playing in smaller venues like BAM in New York and The Wiltern in Los Angeles. 

She has been documenting the rehearsal process extensively on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, which has further fueled fans' excitement.

Madonna has also kept some of her children close to her during preparations for the show, often posting pictures and videos showing her seven-year-old twin daughters Stelle and Estere dancing or playing alongside rehearsals.

Madonna's older children, 22-year-old Lourdes with former trainer Carlos Leone and 19-uear-old Rocco with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, are noticeably absent from The Material Girl's social media feed.

Lourdes, however, did recently make a public appearance, at New York Fashion Week's Proenza Schouler Spring 2020 runway show.

And son Rocco, who lives in London close to his dad, was seen over the weekend at the Goodwood Revival event with a female friend.

Madonna's Madame X tour begins its 17-date run in New York at the Howard Gilman Opera House within the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Tuesday, before heading to Chicago in mid-October.
