While there were plenty of highlights at the premiere of Madonna’s new REBEL HEART World Tour Wednesday night, Madge continued to surprise when she earned a standing ovation for a lovely rendition of “La Vie en Rose,” singing en français.
Fans seem particularly excited that the Queen of Pop includes more than the usual number of early hits from her first two albums. Specifically, she sings “Material Girl” for the first time since her BLOND AMBITION Tour in 1990.
No Madonna concert would be complete without fabulous costumes and set pieces, and REBEL HEART Tour doesn’t disappoint. In addition to glitz and dramatic costumes, the audience is treated to nuns on stripper poles and a recreation of the Last Supper.
The tour is planned (for now) to work it’s way around the world and ultimately closing in Australia next March.
