The Rebel Heart Tour comes to home video on September 15
Madonna has announced the release of her sensational tour: Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour on September 15, 2017 from Eagle Vision / Universal Music Group.
The tour will be released in several different versions including Digital, DVD, Blu-ray with bonus features, a 22 track double CD, and CD+DVD and CD+Blu-ray combo versions, with the CD including highlights from the live show.
Co-directed by Danny B. Tull and Nathan Rissman, the film was recorded around the world and features both live and behind-the-scenes material, as well as previously unreleased footage culminating with performances at the Sydney Qudos Bank Arena in Australia in March of 2016.
The tracklist for the film and live concert album spans all decades of Madonna’s illustrious career, including songs from her chart-topping Rebel Heart album to new interpretations of her classic fan favourites and timeless hits. The tour itself grossed $169.8m with 1,045,479 in attendance and reaffirmed Madonna’s pop culture dominance. Popcrush described the spectacle of the Rebel Heart Tour thusly:
The concert is a massive all-out explosion of song, dance and depravity with vague social commentary, proving for the umpteenth time that Madonna is, was and truly always will be the Queen.
Madonna has made a career pushing boundaries and testing the limits of what artists can and cannot do. For the Rebel Heart Tour she pulled out all the stops, whether it’s playing a Flying V for Burning Up, singing Edith Piaf’s ballad La Vie En Rose in French or doing intricate choreography in full samurai gear, the unstoppable renaissance woman shows us all of the “blood, sweat and tears” that goes into just being Madonna.
The cover image was designed by Aldo Diaz, the fan and artwork designer who previosly collaborated with the Queen of Pop for her Bitch I’m Madonna single.
