On March 2, 2015 Madonna was the special main guest at Le Grand Journal and curated the entire broadcast. Not only did she perform both Living For Love and Ghosttown but she also sat down for a lengthy interview. Madonna had also agreed to a (very rare) meet & greet with a few lucky fans after the taping! We were lucky enough to be among those that got to meet & greet Madonna, shake her hand, have a chat and take a photo with her.

For the first time ever we have updated the photo gallery with all of the pictures of all the fans that were lucky enough to meet and greet her.

Madonna The F-Bomb Commotion 1990 Broadcast Recording Volume 2

 
STUNNING BROADCAST FROM MADONNA’S 1990 WEMBLEY SHOW
 
The Blond Ambition World Tour was Madonna’s third concert tour. It supported her fourth studio album “Like A Prayer” and the soundtrack album to the 1990 film “Dick Tracy, I’m Breathless”. It began on April 13, 1990, in Chiba, Japan, and concluded on August 5, 1990, in Nice, France. The 57-show tour marked Madonna’s first concerts in Sweden and Spain. The jaunt garnered positive reviews from contemporary critics and was a commercial success. It received the ‘Most Creative Stage Production’ award at the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards and grossed over US$62.7 Million. Also, Madonna was named the second most successful solo touring act at the time, behind only Michael Jackson. A number of concerts were recorded and broadcast. In the UK Madonna’s show at Wembley Stadium was broadcast live on 21st July ‘90, which led to controversy over the profanity she used live on air. This two-instalment set includes the full concert Madonna gave in London on that special day, complete with the full criticised sections during which Madonna offended those who chose to be offended by such dalliances! The full gig however is presented here in perfect audio quality and will surely delight Madonna fans everywhere, keen to add this previously unreleased broadcast to their collections.

MDNA World Tour Release Party FAME Amsterdam photo gallery (2013)

On September 6 2013 we celebrated the release of the MDNA World Tour blu-ray/DVD release at FAME in Amsterdam. The release party almost never happened as it was uncertain if the actual product would be delivered on time, due to a delivery delay. Thankfully very late that very same day the boxes arrived at FAME and the party was on! 

With the help of Interscope France we were able to give away two stunning large canvas prints of the MDNA World Tour to two lucky fans. The fans got to buy their item and partied the night away while watching the show on a large screen.

Madonna: A Rebel Life Hardcover – October 24, 2023 (800 pgs)

In this riveting biography, award-winning author Mary Gabriel chronicles the meteoric rise and enduring influence of the greatest female pop icon of the modern era: Madonna.

With her arrival on the music scene in the early 1980s, Madonna generated nothing short of an explosion–as great as that of Elvis or the Beatles–taking the nation by storm with her liberated politics and breathtaking talent. Within two years of her 1983 debut album, a flagship Macy’s store in Manhattan held a Madonna lookalike contest featuring Andy Warhol as a judge, and opened a department called “Madonna-land.”

But Madonna was more than just a pop star. Everywhere, fans gravitated to her as an emblem of a new age, one in which feminism could shed the buttoned-down demeanor of the 1970s and feel relevant to a new generation. Amid the scourge of AIDS, she brought queer identities into the mainstream, fiercely defending a person’s right to love whomever–and be whoever–they wanted. Despite fierce criticism, she never separated her music from her political activism. And, as an artist, she never stopped experimenting. Madonna existed to push past boundaries by creating provocative, visionary music, videos, films, and live performances that changed culture globally.

Deftly tracing Madonna’s story from her Michigan roots to her rise to super-stardom, master biographer Mary Gabriel captures the dramatic life and achievements of one of the greatest artists of our time.
