  1. 10 Things I Learned at Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour


    I really doubt that Madge hates Take A Bow and she doesn't rely too heavily on lip synching but whatever.

    It's easy to say she hates Take A Bow but she ignores most of the 1990s on tour anyway, even 2 ROL singles were never performed...

    Well she cannot really reproduce the MDNA or Rebel Heart vocals live so a lot of those are lipsynched like Bitch I'm Madonna, Holy Water or Body Shop but on this tour her live singing shines with Who's That Girl etc so it's fine.

  2. The second segment being the most theatrical stopped after DWT. For MDNA Tour for example it was the first section.

    I think this time around the second segment is a Travolta/Elvis homage of sorts with the 1950s concept of "can't help falling in love" etc presented in the Madonna way of course.

    I don't think Burning Up is random there, after all it was the earliest incarnation of the "Bitch I'm Madonna" theme, wasn't it? "Unlike the others I'd do anything"...

  3. On August 27 1983, Holiday/Lucky Star made its debut on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the U.S., entering at #31.

    The promo-only double A-side single was serviced to clubs by Sire/Warner in order to gauge public interest before deciding which track should be promoted to radio. Although technically serving as the B-side, Holiday was given top billing for its chart entry when it proved to be the more popular selection with club DJ’s. It was subsequently issued as Madonna’s third commercial single in North America, while Lucky Star was released as her fifth single a year later.



  4. Candy Shop isn't a single and Madonna has performed it three tours straight. I believe the fans would appreciate Baby's return.

    But it's still the only Hard Candy song she performs live, just like how the rest of COADF is forgotten bar Hung Up. In my opinion this tour makes it clear she's not ever dragging out other non-hit singles or album tracks. She's also ignored the ROL album on two tours in a row by now...

  5. I love The Girlie Show rendition but it wasn't even a proper worldwide single so why would she do it again?

    Also, apart from the first 3 albums she keeps returning to only 1-2 songs from each album, that's how it goes and this tour further solidified that.

  6. Even Joan of Arc is better than GT and it didn't make it.

    Exactly. Messiah was relegated to an interlude, she's definitely not big on performing ballads.

    As for cut apocalypse segment, is that becoming another rumor that is widely spread among the fanbase treated like fact, like Nothing Really Matters on RIT? There is absolutely no evidence to it and Madonna herself never teased Ghosttown for the tour so it's possible it was never rehearsed.

  7. I'm intrigued! Never heard of this rumour. Was Luc Besson and Madonna working on an opera?

    “Confessions On A Dance Floor” began as a musical film. The French director Luc Besson, best known for The Fifth Element, was writing a screenplay about a woman on her deathbed looking back on the life she thought she had lived but, due to senility and amnesia, didn’t actually experience. Madonna, who was set to star in it and write the music, began working with Stuart Price, Pat Leonard and Mirwais on songs spanning the last century of popular music.

    “I had to write music from the Twenties, big-band stuff from the Forties, Sixties folk music a la Joni Mitchell or Joan Baez, punk, and music from now, which is where ‘Hung Up’ came from,” she explains. “I made my own research book, and I had tons of reference material. But when I finally got the script, it was 300 pages long. And I was really not happy with it. It wasn’t what I wanted it to be. It just wasn’t.”
