Eis que enfim aparecem a data e a capa do aguardado registro da Rebel Heart Tour, em DVD, Blu-Ray e CD. A (controversa) capa é feita pelo fã brasileiro Aldo Diaz, que caiu no gosto (?) de Madonna há um tempo e já fez a capa do single Bitch I'm Madonna.
O press-release segundo a Universal Music Holandesa e Francesa:
Madonna revealed the release date of her
record breaking Rebel Heart Tour that will be released as digital
concertfilm and as a live album on September 15 this year.
Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour has been
recorded all over the world. The film will also present you with a
unique behind the scenes feature and never before released footage with
Madonna’s performance in Sydney, Australia as the ultimate highlight.
The concertfilm has been co-directed by Danny B. Tull and Nathan
Rissman, who bought previously worked with Madonna. Madonna fan Aldo
Diaz is responsible for the DVD cover arwork design.
The songs from the Rebel Heart Tour that
will re-appear on the newly to be released live album spans her entire
carreer. Next to songs from the hitalbum Rebel Heart it also contains
well known re-invented classics.
Outro mais completo, que deixa um pouco confuso o conteúdo exato das versões (não sabemos se as músicas cortadas e editadas na exibição do Showtime estarão neste lançamento, nem quais são os bônus, se são extras, nem o que acontece com o registro do show Tears Of A Clown).
As the top grossing touring female artist in the history of Billboard,
Madonna sure knows how to draw a crowd. Her record-breaking Rebel Heart
Tour showed the Material Girl at the top of her game, taking her on a
whirlwind tour of 55 cities across four continents over the course of
Luckily all of Madonna’s signature visual
theatrics, extravagant costumes and awe-inspiring choreography were
captured on film for the concert documentary, Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour,
which initially aired on Showtime and now will be available on DVD for
the first time on 15 September.
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 Queen Of Pop has also announced a
new live album featuring 22 songs from the Rebel Heart Tour, available
on double-CD and digital download, as well as the concert film via DVD
and Blu-ray with bonus content.
The tracklist for the film and
live concert album spans all decades of her 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.
Em 09 de Maio de 2003 Madonna estremece a Oxford Street em Londres promovendo seu novo álbum American Life na extinta loja HMV (do tempo que se comprava Cd's). Desde o início de sua carreira ela não cantava em lugares pequenos tão próxima ao público. Oúnico registro completo do show vazou na internet apenas em 2016, antes disso apenas filmagens de fã ou reportagens de TV mostravam este fato.
