For 2012’s The MDNA tour, Madonna enlisted superstar DJs such as Paul Oakenfold, Benny Benassi, and Laidback Luke as her opening acts. But in keeping with the fiercely feminist tone of this year’s Rebel Heart album and accompanying tour, the Queen of Pop has turned to a kindred spirit to warm up the crowd: comedian Amy Schumer, who’s slated to open three New York shows in September. Judging by a video Schumer posted on Twitter to tease the reveal, this is an opportunity she’s waited for her whole life: The 17-second clip features her as a young girl singing along earnestly to “Like A Prayer.”

Madonna tour dates with Amy Schumer:

September 16 & 17, 2015 — Madison Square Garden —New York, NY
September 19, 2015 —Barclays Center —Brooklyn, NY
