Madonna – Rebel Heart Tour – 4 sterren (Dutch review)

Madonna – Rebel Heart Tour – 4 sterren

Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour – in december 2015 in ons land- verraste door de relaxte toon die de popkoningin op het podium aansloeg. Ze speelde True Blue op de ukelele, zong voor haar doen veel live en maakte zelfs grappen over haar mislukte huwelijken. De tournee verschijnt nu op dubbel-album en voor wie de beelden erbij wenst ook op dvd. Die laatste is een hevig bewerkte, maar spectaculaire videoclip vol slow motions en lichteffecten. Dan is de audio-versie natuurgetrouwer. Hoogtepunten daar: een vette discoversie van Deeper and Deeper, een triphop-uitvoering van Material Girl en de akoestische mini-biografie Rebel Heart.

Preview: Madonna on building children’s hospital in Malawi

Madonna visits with patients at the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, at the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi.

Music superstar Madonna opens up about adoption, motherhood, and building the first-ever children’s hospital in Malawi, in a revealing interview with Tracy Smith to be broadcast Sunday, Sept. 17, on CBS’ “Sunday Morning.”

Smith traveled to Malawi to tour the new hospital with Madonna. The facility is the result of the singer’s multiple visits there, which eventually led to her adopting four children (she has two others from previous relationships).

Is her family complete at six? “Who knows?” the singer told Smith. “Yeah, I never say never. You never know what surprise awaits you around the corner.”

Madonna admits being a mom helps her, too; her own mother died when she was just five years old.

“I get to become the mom I never had. So, yeah, it’s a very healing experience,” she said.

Madonna admits didn’t know much about Malawi, a small country in southeastern Africa, when she first visited in 2006 — specifically, where it was — but has since founded the charity Raising Malawi to help provide health and education services. Still, getting the new hospital built wasn’t easy. She says she would often think, “I’m a crazy person. What am I doing this for? So here we are. It happened. It’s built, and it’s up and running. And children’s lives are being saved as a result. And I feel like, you know, sometimes you can’t think too far in advance.”

The superstar singer also talks with Smith about visiting HIV and AIDS patients at St. Vincent’s Hospital; how she compares herself today to the strong-willed woman in the documentary “Truth or Dare”; and her tendency to push every envelope.

“Oh, I’m sure I’ve done provocative things just for the sake of provocation,” she said. “Not so much now. Definitely not since I have children. But I think, when I was younger, I used to just say things, do crazy things. But everybody does.”

The Emmy Award-winning “CBS Sunday Morning,” hosted by Jane Pauley, is broadcast on CBS Sundays beginning at 9:00 a.m. ET. Executive producer is Rand Morrison.

Review: Madonna mesmerizing on new ‘Rebel Heart Tour’ DVD and Blu-ray

The “Queen of Pop” Madonna is back stronger than ever with her new “Rebel Heart Tour” live DVD and Blu-ray that was released on Eagle Vision.

This collection features 22 smash songs from the “Material Girl.” It kicks off with “Iconic” and the unapologetic “Bitch I’m Madonna,” prior to her classic hit “Burning Up,” which had a retro vibe to it. The DVD includes an acoustic version of “True Blue” and a distinct version of “Like a Virgin.”
 

Equally fun was her “Living for Love” song, which was followed by such pop staples as “La Isla Bonita,” and “Dress You Up,” which was incorporated as a medley with “Lucky Star” and “Into the Groove.” Some of the highlight songs were “Like a Prayer,” “Music,” her namesake song “Material Girl” and her encore performance of “Holiday.” She commanded the stage for the duration of the “Rebel Heart Tour,” where she proved that the pop throne still belongs to her, well over 30 years into her accomplished career.

 

With her “Rebel Heart Tour,” Madonna was able to take the music fan on a journey of her hits over all the years from the 80’s until her latest radio singles today. It was a true labor of love, and for a viewer, a treat from a musical goddess.

 

The Verdict

 

Overall, this live DVD and Blu-ray of the “Rebel Heart Tour” is a must for any die-hard fan of Madonna, who is the best-selling female recording artist of all time; moreover, it is recommended for anybody who may have missed her “Rebel Heart Tour,” since it gives the viewer a front-row seat to that vivacious musical experience. Eagle Vision delivers once again. It garners an A rating.

Madonna – Rebel Heart Tour Blu-ray review

Madonna embarked on her Rebel Heart World Tour in 2015 and she performed an amazing 82 shows across North America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. The tour was her 10th to date and was in support of the album of the same name, which featured the singles Living For Love, Ghosttown and Bitch I’m Madonna featuring Nicki Minaj. Various stops on the tour were filmed and fans can now relive the epic show in the comfort of their own home by picking up the Blu-ray and DVD release.

When it comes to touring, Madonna always puts on a spectacular show. She’s unparalleled when it comes to the sets, choreography and surprises throughout her performance. Some critics would like to have you believe that Madonna is a shadow of her former self and that’s simply not true. As a performer she continues to push the envelope and redefine what it means to be a successful woman in a male dominated industry. The Rebel Heart Tour is now different and the show is full of religious imagery (which of course proved controversial), bad language, simulated sex acts and of course fantastic music.

The set list for the most part is pulled from the Rebel Heart album. Madonna peppers it with selections from her back catalogue but the performances of those songs are remixed to fit into the overall theme and sound of the show. Vogue is mashed up with Holy Water, True Blue is given a ukulele makeover and Like a Virgin is almost unrecognisable musically from its original form.

The show opens with Iconic, a song that features a spoken part from Mike Tyson and it’s one of the boldest songs from the Rebel Heart album. It’s a superb start to the show and the spectacle kicks in immediately with detailed costumes, impressive choreography and stunning sets. Highlights across the performance include Rebel Heart, where Madonna performs while playing the guitar, a spine-tingling rendition of HeartBreakCity that takes place on a staircase as Madonna spars with one of her male backing dancers, and La Isla Bonita, which is turns the stage into a party.

Madonna splits the show into segments with the icon taking on a variety of roles including a samurai, a geisha and a jazz lounge singer. As always she fully embodies whatever character she’s playing and she has a lot of fun with it. I was a bit baffled however as to why one of the female backing dancers performed with her breasts on display for the majority of the show. I’m not being a prude but I didn’t see what it really added.

While the show is very good and Madonna is on top form, the editing and some of the directorial decisions are a bit odd. Frequently throughout the show there are unnecessary slow-motion moments, which jar the performance from the audio and make it look like Madonna isn’t actually singing. Projections flash up on the screen frequently and they are very distracting. There are also several moments that splice together performances of the same song from different shows and I found that a bit bizarre. Madonna’s costume and hair would change within the span of a verse.

Perhaps the most disappointing part of the release is the sound mix. Half the time it doesn’t look like Madonna is actually singing and there are so many effects on her voice, you can’t really hear her. Having seen Madonna live before I know that she sings live these days but it’s hard to tell through much of this show save for the moments where she’s playing guitar or not surrounded by dancers.

Extras on the release include an excerpt from Madonna’s Tears of a Clown show and a bonus performance of Like a Prayer.

There’s no denying that the Rebel Heart Tour was a true spectacle but I don’t think this release wholly does it justice. The stylisation is distracting and adds nothing to the show. Maybe I’m old-fashioned but I would have preferred to just see the performance without all the bells and whistles. Madonna is an incredible performer and she doesn’t need the level of fancy editing that’s been applied here. A straight performance from one date of the tour would have been a better watch. Rebel Heart Tour is still an entertaining watch but sometimes less really is more.
