Update nieuwe single, album en tour

MadonnaTribe plaatst vandaag inside information over wat er allemaal dit jaar op de planning staat. Het blijven geruchten dus of het allemaal waar is... In ieder geval moeten we nog steeds geduld hebben. Time goes by so slowly for those who wait :)

Volgens de huidige planning zal de eerste single in mei uitgebracht worden. Het album verschijnt dan komende zomer. De vele geruchten over invloeden van wereldmuziek schijnen ook te kloppen!

En om het album te promoten zal Madonna ook weer op tournee gaan. Dit zal net als bij de Rebel Heart Tour in de herfst/winter zijn.

Madonna: 'I want to reinvent pop tours'

Twenty-seven years ago, Madonna set the template for modern pop concerts with her Blond Ambition world tour.

From its hydraulic stage to Jean-Paul Gaultier's iconic costumes, it raised the bar for stadium-sized spectacle.

Now, after seven huge world tours, the star tells the BBC she's "exploring" a smaller-scale show in the future.

"I've done so many shows - world tours, stadiums, sports arenas, you name it - that I feel like I have to reinvent that now too," she explains.

"I like doing intimate shows and being able to talk directly to the audience.

"This is something I'm exploring right now: the idea of doing a show that doesn't travel the world, but stays in one place and utilises not only humour and the music in a more intimate setting but other people's music, as well, and other entertainment.

"Kind of a revolving door of amazing, gifted, unique talent - dancers, musicians, singers, comedians, me, humour. I don't know! Like, I'm trying to come up with all those ideas now."

The concerts will presumably owe much to the vaudeville-style Tears of a Clown show that Madonna performed twice in 2016 - once as a gift to fans in Australia, and again at a fundraiser for her Raising Malawi charity.

The low-key gigs featured the pop icon dressed as a clown, riding a tricycle, chatting to the audience and telling jokes when not performing stripped-back renditions of some of her favourite songs.

Footage of the Australian concert appears on the star's new DVD, released on Friday, which documents her 2015-16 Rebel Heart Tour.

In an exclusive interview with BBC News, she talked about touring life, changing attitudes to sex, and her recent dispute with a courier company...

Before we start, there's one thing I need to know: Did your FedEx package ever arrive?

Ha ha! Yes, it has. FedEx is blaming customs, customs is blaming FedEx and we'll never know what happened. But I have it now.

So, I saw the Rebel Heart tour when you were in London and the DVD does a really good job of capturing what it was like to be in the audience. How do you go about that?

I was there every step of the way, every day for months and months. It's really hard to capture the true feeling of the excitement and the passion and the heat and the blood, sweat and tears. I'm pleased with the way it came out.

There's a particularly touching sequence during True Blue, where everybody in the audience embraces each other.

I know, it's a very sweet, emotional moment in the show. I didn't expect it to be, but when I look back at the DVD it almost brings a tear to my eye because everyone seems so in love.

How do you put a show like this together? Where do you get the ideas?

Everything's based around my song choice. So first, I go through my catalogue of songs with my band and I start working on things that excite me and inspire me in the moment. Some songs I'm sick of doing and I don't want to do them. Other songs I say, "No, I did that on the last tour, I don't want to do it again."

So I try to rotate things and I also try to reflect my current mood and what I've been feeling, and what's been inspiring me artistically or filmically, politically, philosophically. I try to put songs together in groups that have thematic connection, and then I try to tell a story. And then I do the visuals. It's quite a process.

What are the songs you don't want to do again?

Well, I tend to not want to do the songs I did on the tour before. That's what I mean. So if I did Material Girl on the tour before, or Express Yourself on the tour before, then I'll say, "OK, I did that for 88 shows. I can't do it again."

How do you keep a healthy balance between new songs and your back catalogue?

It's just playing in rehearsal. It's really hard for me, especially with my older songs, to do them with the original arrangement. Because 33 years later, after doing it for so long, you just have to reinvent things. Well, I do.

And it's fun for me to take an '80s pop song and turn it into a salsa song, or turn it into a samba, or make an uptempo song into a ballad.

The overarching theme of the tour was being a rebel. In the intro you say, "when fascist dictators come for you dressed as righteous men" you have to rise up and take a stand.

If you were doing the tour against the current political backdrop, would that message feel more relevant?

Yeah, I created that voiceover for my short film Secret Project,. I feel like it was a foreshadowing of things to come, like a prophecy.

You felt something in the air?

I did then - and I think people all thought I was being a little bit dramatic and extreme, but I felt like I was witnessing the beginning of it on the tour previous [to Rebel Heart]. And, of course, look what's happening in the world right now. It's pretty crazy.

Twenty-seven years ago, the Pope tried to get one of your shows banned. Now you have pole-dancing nuns and nobody bats an eyelid. Is that progress?

Is it progress? Well, I guess in some ways you could call that progress. When I released my Sex book, the idea of someone being scantily-clad on the street was an outrage. But look at social media today and it's nothing.

People get used to things, but I wouldn't call that progress. What I think of as progress is people becoming more open-minded, and people understanding the difference between art and exploitation.

When I was banned by the Pope, I was playing with the ideas of religion and sexuality, which are usually kept completely apart. Sex is considered a sin in the Catholic church. And I was questioning that and challenging that point of view because I don't, obviously, agree with it.

So now that no one's batting an eyelash about nuns on the stripper poles, it doesn't mean that the Vatican or the Catholic church is soul-searching or investigating whether they made the right choices. I don't think people are thinking that maybe sexuality and God don't need to be separate. That, to me, would be progress.

The DVD also includes the Tears of a Clown show you did in Melbourne. Was that a one-off or a trial run for a different type of Madonna concert?

I like doing intimate shows and being able to talk directly to the audience; to play with them and use humour and pathos and truth, and share my life - and also make up stories. I like the freedom of it and I like the intimacy of it, and I would like to explore doing it more in the future.

Maybe a residency?

Yeah, a residency. If I look back at the Rebel Heart tour, my favourite [part] was really the last section where I got to just sit on the stage and play my ukulele and sing La Vie en Rose and talk to the audience. [It was] just more intimate. More audience participation and connecting to human beings - I feel I'm craving that more and more.

Did it feel like there was more room for improvisation in that section?

Yeah, I have freedom and I can make mistakes. That's another thing I do in Tears of a Clown - if I start a song off wrong and I make a boo-boo, I just turn around and go "Stop! Let's start again!"

When you're doing a sports arena show, you're linked up to video, you can't stop. Once the train leaves the station, you have to keep going.

There's a certain kind of adrenalin rush to that - but there's no room for error. So I like the idea of mistakes and freestyling. Free-falling, really. It's more exciting to me right now.

Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour is out now on DVD, CD and Blu-Ray and via digital retailers.

Begin volgende week tour aankondiging

We hadden het natuurlijk allemaal al een beetje verwacht dat er op korte termijn aan aankondiging zou komen voor Madonna's nieuwe tournee. Via diverse (Europese) webwinkels was namelijk al bekend geworden dat mensen die het album Rebel Heart online besteld hadden in de loop van volgende week een mail zouden ontvangen met een link voor een exclusieve pre-sale van concertkaartjes.

Vandaag komt MadonnaTribe met het nieuws dat begin volgende week de tournee aangekondigd gaat worden! Door de eerdere aankondiging via de webwinkels weten we al dat Duitsland, Nederland (!), België (!), Denemarken en Spanje op de concertagenda komen te staan. MadonnaTribe weet ook te melden dat Madonna naar Italië zal komen met haar aankomende (wereld)tournee.

Update 26 februari: MadonnaTribe laat weten dat de tournee wordt aangekondigd op maandag 2 maart!

Releaseparty was TOP!

Alles komt goed. Na een chaotische dag voordien met het afzeggen van de releaseparty kwam in de loop van vrijdagmiddag het ontzettend leuke bericht  dat de party toch een GO had. Verloven werden snel terug in orde gebracht, ritten gepland en treintabellen nagekeken.
De Madonnafamilie had maar één bestemming: Fame, Amsterdam!

Toch altijd een bijzonder moment wanneer je de DVD of CD in handen krijgt. Met nog leuke posters en foto’s extra erbij had iedereen een goodie bag vol om richting screening te trekken.
MadonnaNed had eerst nog enkele exemplaren van de DVD van WE te verloten, maar dan was het echt zover: de MDNA Tour op groot scherm: een eerste kippenvelmoment van velen.
Boys and Girls Gone Wild!

Hoogtepunten waren zeker publieksfavorietje Turn Up The Radio (Magna Plaza daverde even op z’n grondvesten), Like a Prayer (handjes de lucht in en heerlijk zichtbaar in de lichtstraal van beamer)  en natuurlijk Celebration (iedereen op de dansvloer!).

MadonnaNed zou graag IEDEREEN bedanken die aanwezig was op de release party. Jullie enthousiasme zorgt ook voor ons telkens weer dat het zeker de moeite waard is om onze schouders hieronder te steken. Jullie zijn fantastisch!

Ook de mensen die net dat extraatje deden en zich prachtig uitgedost hadden in de kostuums van de tour: you guys rule! Echt!

Een extra dankwoord gaat zeker naar alle mensen van Fame die er telkens voor zorgen release parties onvergetelijk te maken. Wij denken uit naam van elke muziekfan te spreken als we zeggen dat wij enorm blij zijn dat jullie gewoon lekker kunnen voortbestaan op deze locatie.

Madonnafamilie, tot op de volgende MDNA afspraak?

The MDNA Tour - Madonna's eigen woorden

Aan de vooravond van de Amerikaanse data in The MDNA Tour heeft Madonna op haar officiële site een verklaring geplaatst over haar intenties met deze show:

My show
Is a journey.
The journey of a soul from darkness to light
It is part cinematic musical theatre.
Part spectacle and sometimes intimate Performance art.
But above all its a journey
From darkness to light
From anger to love
from chaos to order.
It's true there is a lot of violence in the beginning of the show and sometimes the use of fake guns - but they are used as metaphors.
I do not condone violence or the use of guns.
Rather they are symbols of wanting to appear strong and wanting to find a way to stop feelings that I find hurtful or damaging. In my case its wanting to stop the lies and hypocrisy of the church, the intolerance of many narrow minded cultures and societies I have experienced throughout my life and in some cases the pain I have felt from having my heart broken.
Ultimately as we follow through the journey of my story, the audience can see quite clearly what I see -
That the enemy is within and the only way to survive Disappointment Disapproval Judgment Heartbreak Jealousy Envy And Hatred Is with Love - not with revenge - not with guns and not with violence.
In spite of all the chaos and darkness and intolerance we seem to be encountering more and more in the world,
We cannot allow our anger or bitterness to swallow us up.
We come to understand that
There is an innate and pure love inside us all and we have to find a way to tap into it.
And we can't do it by being victims or placing the blame or pointing the finger at others.
But by recognizing that the enemy is within
And when we come to terms with it
And accept it
And struggle to change ourselves,
Then we can change the world without hurting anyone and we can inspire others to do the same.
When you watch a film there are usually good guys and bad guys to help illustrate this point, Sometimes I play both.
I enjoy acting out this journey.
For none of us are perfect and we all have our own journey of growth to go on.
I know people can relate to it.
It's very important to me as an artist that my show not be taken out of context.
It must be watched with an open heart from beginning to end. I am sure if it is viewed this way, the viewer will walk away feeling inspired, Invigorated and will want to make the world a better place.
And this of course was always my intention.
