Madonna: The Material Girl stormed through Europe trailing controversy – a lawsuit in Russia, a tussle over the display of a swastika in France, an uproar over gun imagery in her stage show – and she wouldn’t have it any other way, especially given the anemic sales of her latest album, “MDNA.” No pop performer is quite so expert at stirring it up, 8 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday at the United Center, 1950 W. Madison, $45, $90, $170, $355; ticketmaster.com.
