Did you miss Madonna’s Madame X tour? The album? Well, now’s your chance to get acquainted with it when Paramount+ drops her tour documentary, also called Madame X.

Shot during the Lisbon dates of her 2019 concert tour, the spectacle of it all incorporates a lot of high-concept sets, costumes, musicians, and dancers (48 of those, to be exact). Directed by Portuguese photographer Ricardo Gomes in collaboration with SKNX, the team that created Amazon Prime’s documentary Madonna–World of Madame X, the concert film will showcase the ambitious concept album’s influences rooted in international pop.

Ms. Ciccone has stated that she hopes the film will “remind us of the sacred bond of our shared humanity,” which is an appropriately grandiose goal and nothing less than what we’d expect from a woman who’s never aimed for the small gesture. The movie arrives on Oct. 8 on Paramount+, and we’ll be there, lounging on our couch watching the hardest working pop star in the world refuse to stop making noise. Long live the queen.
