Madonna kicked off her ‘Rebel Heart’ tour in style on Wednesday (9 September) night, sporting an array of typically lavish outfits over the course of the evening.

During her two-hour show in Montreal, Madonna wore outfits inspired by samurais, matadors and at one point even became a rock chick (though the less said about that the better, if we’re being honest).

Her show was as elaborate as you might expect from the Queen of Pop, boasting pole-dancing nuns as backing dancers, a cabaret-inspired dance routine and a seriously impressive cage, which descends from the ceiling at the opening of the show.

 

The pop icon’s setlist was compiled of a mix of her old hits and newer offerings, with ‘Vogue’ and ‘Material Girl’ sitting comfortably alongside ‘Living For Love’ and ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’ (oh, and a curious cover of ‘La Vie En Rose’, originally performed by Edith Piaf, one of M’s idols).
The show opened with a performance of ‘Iconic’, preceded by a lavish opening video featuring a cameo appearance from Mike Tyson, who performs a monologue at the beginning of the track.

 

And like a true #UnapologeticBitch, one portion of the show even saw Madonna throwing on another cape to recreate her infamous Brit Awards performance, which saw her accidentally pulled to the ground by one of her backing dancers, in one of the year’s most toe-curling live TV moments.
Madonna’s ‘Rebel Heart’ tour will arrive at London’s O2 Arena on 1 & 2 December, with performances in Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow scheduled for later in the month.
