  • This was Madonna’s first world tour with a European premiere (London, U.K.)
  • Press was overall negative, however this was more due to the backlash going on in the media at the time, no journalist actually made an effort to look at the show without having an opinion beforehand
  • She cancelled the show in Frankfurt, which led to many disappointed fans
  • The Girlie Show brought Madonna to countries she’d never performed before
  • Madonna even sang an early ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’ during her show in Buenos Aires. She later commented on this in an ICON fanzine saying ‘believe me, they didn’t’
  • During her show in Sao Paolo, fans ran on stage TWICE during the show! During ‘La Isla Bonita’ a guy ran on stage but was caught in time. Sadly during ‘Justify My Love’ a girl managed to run on stage, grabbed Madonna and wouldn’t let go. After a few seconds security managed to pull her off and took the crying girl backstage. News reports managed to capture this on film and it was broadcast on the news.
  • Madonna enjoyed the tour much more than her previous tours, she had more fun, did a lot more sightseeing
  • The Girlie Show was officially released on VHS, Video CD, Laserdisc and DVD. The show was filmed in Australia and Japan
  • The Girlie Show filmed in Fukuoka Japan only aired on Japanese TV, there was no commercial release
  • Parts of a professionally filmed The Girlie Show was included in the MTV ‘Girlie Talk’ special
  • The Girlie Show was also released in book form. A beautiful large hardback book containing amazing live pictures and a CD with three live tracks
