Madonna is hoping to pioneer a new live sound when she tours the world in 2006 by creating a hi-tech system she can plug into at every venue.

The pop superstar recently announced her plans to tour to promote new disco album CONFESSIONS ON A DANCEFLOOR and she's teasing fans by telling them it will be a surround-sound supershow.

She says, "We want to devise a sound system that's surround-sound, because the standard system in a sports arena is c**p for people watching, and it's c**p for people onstage."
