PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Fans of Madonna were snapping up tickets this morning for her August concert in Philadelphia.

Fresh off her Super Bowl halftime performance (below), Madonna kicks off the US leg of her tour August 28th in Philadelphia (see previous story).

More than 100 fans of the Material Girl were lined up this morning in 29° weather at the Wells Fargo Center box office when tickets went on sale at 10am.

Melissa Almodovar of Pennsauken (at head of line in top photo) got her ticket.

“Oh my god,” she said after making her purchase.   “Almost a dream come true!”

The most expensive floor seats were going for $355 each.  Dreamah Knoll, a fan from South Philly, says a Madonna show is worth it:

“Like a circus mixed with Broadway mixed with great talent.  It’s worth the price, I think.  She puts on a really, really good show.”

Madonna fans here may have thought they had, “Like a Prayer” to score tickets.  But many are now thanking their “Lucky Star” they braved the morning chill to get them.
