LIVE GIRLIE SHOW BROADCAST JAPAN 1993 Despite claiming that after her Blond Ambition Tour she would never tour again, within three years Madonna was back on the road with The Girlie Show Tour, which started in September 1993. In the mean time she had published Sex, her risqué coffee-table book of explicit photographs which sold 1.5 million copies, and simultaneously released her fifth studio album, Erotica; both projects came out on her newly founded Maverick Label. To support her latest endeavours, Madonna set out on The Girlie Show Tour on 25th September 93. Her first live jaunt to encompass the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia, the tour consisted of extravagant, multi-section performances with the events being described as a mixture of a rock concert, fashion show, carnival, cabaret and burlesque. This double CD set is taken from a performance given at the Fukuoka Dome, Japan, on 8th December 1993, which was also the subject of a live broadcast. Available here on CD for the first time, this rarely heard transmission includes a show from Madonna while at the very peak of her success, her most challenging and contains some of her finest ever work.
