  1. Possibly the most exciting setlist entry so far! Hope it's a big dance number this time!
  2. Still don't think ALL songs are in the setlist, one theory is that she posted several at the same time so those songs were "versus" each other and she went with one of them (like Dress You Up instead of True Blue).
  3. True, but Rebel Heart has the most collaborators by far and no "main producer" either.
  4. I think so too, no wonder she recorded so many songs with a lot of people this time around, not Madonna-like at all. However, at the same time it is still likely that she wanted to complete her contract because by the time she starts her next album, sales will be even worse and her traditional album distribution contract might be reductive...
  5. Nothing Really Matters was only mentioned by fansites and other supposed insiders, never confirmed. As it was not on that provisional setlist you posted, nor Jamie King ever talked about it, so it's likely not even true. And surely you confused Skin with Swim.
  6. Cherish, Take A Bow & Love Profusion are once again just fan dreams... And 15 songs rehearsed from Rebel Heart but Joan Of Arc is not one of them?
  7. No Joan of Arc though? Safe to say she's not singing all the teased songs, or they are just snippets etc. I'm sure we don't know about several songs yet.
  8. Imagine Secret done Erotica CT style with the original Shep Pettibone demo...
  9. Yeah that's true. And she did Evita stuff when she wanted to slow things down. Now she has several new ballads... However, Secret is a song that could be reinvented into anything. Of ALL the hits she's been ignoring in the past decade, it's the most puzzling for me. I can understand True Blue, Cherish, all the 90s ballads like The Power Of Good-Bye but not Secret.
  10. Finally a post-1992 track. Let's just hope it won't be the finale together with Holiday.
  11. And what does the writing have to do with being dated? ROL was written mainly by Patrick Leonard and Belinda Carlisle's Rick Nowels, it was more of a songwriter affair. Nellee Hooper, Dallas Austin & Dave Hall are more about the beats...
  12. Well the majority of her reinventions that are not simply spiced-up album/TIC versions post-TGS are mashups and rock versions, even Candy Shop on MDNA was built around a sample. And then there are the acoustic/ballad versions, after these you barely have anything left, bar Erotica CT.
  13. Yeah both Dress You Up & Who's That Girl can be treated as definite in my opinion. Still having doubts about True Blue though, such an unlikely choice for her, about as much as This Used To Be My Playground or American Pie...
  14. Surely Vogue & Holy Water are going to be performed together. Maybe Like A Virgin as well.
  15. She's had seven tours in a row with the "four section" concept (okay RIT had 5) so why would that change now? It's obvious she has these cornerstones when putting together a show and these teasers affirm that.
  16. Do we even know Devil Pray is really that performance? It just seemed they put the track over random footage...
  17. Yeah, at 0:10 you can see some guy with a mic, presumably he's the current "world music band"!
  18. That setlist of Mike McKnight was from early February, MONTHS before the first show so Madonna was not in full rehearsal mode yet. When the show was being put together by Jamie King, those things were already decided, he never talked about having to replace 7-8 songs because by that time the setlist was final except that one guitar song (he never mentioned Nothing Really Matters, by the way). My point is that there is no long history of Madonna rehearsing many songs for a show and it's not a relevant discussion for Rebel Heart Tour 6 weeks before the show when the setlist is surely final.
  19. Madonna is the only one getting a producer credit for this song but the music was done by Philip Meckseper who has just collaborated with Diplo on the new Major Lazer album: http://www.josepvinaixa.com/blog/major-lazer-peace-is-the-mission-1/
  20. These were never really confirmed though, most of those songs appeared on a provisional setlist nearly 4 months before the first show, most likely they only appeared "on paper" and she didn't work with them. All we know for sure is that the backdrop video of Frozen was done for Swim and she rehearsed Dress You Up & I'm So Stupid since they have studio versions. Jamie King did not talk about anymore dropped songs. At one point it's been said by Madonna Tribe that Madonna never ever rehearsed Love Profusion. There haven't been many songs she considered/rehearsed for tours that got eventuall
  21. So Lucky Star was not a tease only because the hashtag did not include "tour" just "rebelheart"? https://instagram.com/p/5cr7FMGEcD/
  22. A medley does not only mean several songs thrown together Janet-style, I think these can be considered as medleys as well: Live To Tell / Oh Father (Blond Ambition Tour) Mer Girl / Sky Fits Heaven (Drowned World Tour) Papa Don't Preach / Hung Up (MDNA Tour) Like A Virgin Waltz / Love Spent (MDNA Tour)
