The Confessions Tour London August 15, 2006 photo gallery online

The Confessions Tour was professionally filmed for the DVD release on August 15, 2006 in the Wembley Arena. Because of the scheduled filming the very front row of the floor had been reserved for the camera crew. However, they found out they didn’t need the extra space and due to demand the front row tickets were sold just a few hours before the show was about to start!

Can you imagine our faces when we went up to the ticket booth to ask the lady if she had some good tickets left for tonight’s show, and she responded with ‘yes, front row’. Our credit card had never been handed over more quickly. We experienced one of the greatest nights as Madonna gave it her all that night. Most of the footage on the official DVD release is from the August 15th show. You can even see the flash of our camera during “You Thrill Me” when Madonna poses with dancer Jason.

We took some of our greatest pictures that night. We have updated and enhanced 63 of them for you to view HERE

Enjoy

Confessions on a Dance Floor release party FAME photo gallery online!

We celebrated the worldwide premiere of Confessions on a Dance Floor in FAME Amsterdam on November 10, 2005. 

Believe it or not but a previous releaseparty for Mariah Carey’s “The Emancipation of Mimi” was the blueprint for the first ever official Dutch Madonna releaseparty!

The releaseparty drew a huge crowd who all got to purchase Madonna’s new studio album one day prior to the official release date. The party was done in collaboration with Warner Music Benelux who donated the official promotional Confession on a Dance Floor discoball for the best-dressed fan of the evening. 

We dug in our vaults and recovered a ton of pictures of the event that we never posted online before.

Check out our brand new photo gallery of the world premiere of Confessions on a Dance Floor in FAME Amsterdam HERE

Madonna, drugs and helicopter-trained dogs: the dark, starry life of William Orbit

He talks at length about Madonna, with whom he made three albums – her unique musicality, her toughness, how she is a better arranger than him – and about whom illuminating anecdotes tumble out of nowhere. “We were at the Hit Factory [studio in New York] once and I walked in on her on the lav – she hadn’t locked it,” says Orbit. “She’s doing a No 2 and I’m like: ‘Oh God, I’m so sorry.’ She said: ‘William, look, I was brought up in a family of six kids with one loo, so don’t sweat it.’”

The first time they worked together, on Ray of Light, “killed me”, says Orbit. “I was in a crisis with my family, which I put on hold. I remember getting very ill that winter; at the age of 43, I was done in physically.” It took months to complete. Madonna, who was a new mum at the time, cracked the whip. As hard as it was, it was an atmosphere in which he thrived. “I flourish under that,” he says. “She’s a fabulous producer. When it says ‘produced by Madonna and William Orbit’, people don’t always give her the credit for that. But she’s as responsible as me.”

Madonna: The Joan Collins of Pop – The Virgin Tour review (Dallas)

‘And, though she certainly merits an Iggy Pop School of Applied Tastelessness Award for her much-copied couture, the extravaganza clinched Madonna’s standing as the ultimate lowbrow sex symbol: a Joan Collins for the charts, a bedroom-mirror Venus who’d never cut it in Vegas.’

Check out the full review for The Virgin Tour as performed in Dallas in 1985 by Cynthia Rose for NME (May 25, 1985) below.

The article has been added to The Virgin Tour archives.
