Madonna is set release a live DVD and blu-ray of her 'Rebel Heart' tour. Filmed in various locations in 2016, 'Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour', the set which also comes as an edited twenty-two song audio CD, is due on 15th September, through Eagle Rock.
The 'Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour' 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 (formerly known as the Allphones Arena) in Australia in March of 2016. The film is co-directed by Danny B. Tull and Nathan Rissman, both of whom have worked extensively with Madonna on her feature films and tour movies, while the cover art, which can be viewed below, was designed by Madonna fan Aldo Diaz.
The track list for 'Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour' film and live concert album span all decades of the iconic superstar's illustrious career, including songs from her chart-topping 'Rebel Heart' album, to classic fan favourites. Of particular note to longtime fans will be the new interpretations of some of Madonna’s timeless hits.
Produced by Live Nation Global Touring, the 'Rebel Heart Tour' kicked off on September 9, 2015 in Montreal, and visited arenas in fifty-five cities on four continents over seven months. Madonna performed eighty-two shows, plus the special 'Tears Of A Clown' fan club show in Melbourne. The tour grossed $169.8M with 1,045,479 in attendance, making her the top grossing touring female artist in the history of Billboard Boxscore, with over $1.31 billion in tickets sold over the course of her career. Madonna is also the fourth top grossing touring act since tracking began in 1990.
The Rebel Heart Tour was directed by Jamie King with musical direction by Kevin Antunes (with band keyboardist Ric'key Pageot, drummer Brian Frasier-Moore, guitarist Monte Pittman, and background vocalists Kiley Dean and Nicki Richards), lead choreography by Megan Lawson, hair by Andy LeCompte, makeup by Aaron Henrikson, and costume design by Arianne Phillips.
