Rebel Heart Tour
From simulated sex acts to pole dancing on the belly of a woman dressed as a nun, Madonna proves she can still do whatever she wants.
After a 23-year wait, Madonna has wowed her fans Down Under in an energy packed extravaganza and paid tribute to the first Australian man who fell in love with her – Molly Meldrum.
When you are the person setting the benchmark then everyone has to rise to your standards. At 57 years old, Madonna is the greatest pop star on the planet. The Rebel Heart show in Melbourne was precision pop perfection.
One doesn’t really need to review a Madonna show, you simply have to recount it as faithfully as possible and the details speak for themselves. You don’t need to talk about the electricity in the air or the way the crowd responded rapturously to a given stunt or antic, because there’s only one way to react to one of the world’s most Iconic pop singers revolving around a cruciform stripper poll aboard a dancer dressed in a nun habit.
December 1993 was the last time the legendary Madonna was in town, peddling the Girlie Show World Tour on the back of her Erotica album. So it’s fair to say it’s been a long time between drinks for the for the hoards of adoring fans who packed Rod Laver Arena on Saturday night.
You don’t have to be a lapsed Catholic to appreciate the glorious spectacle of Madonna’s Rebel Heart World Tour. But it does help.
They say better late than never — and how true that was for the thousands who packed into Auckland’s Vector Arena last night for Madonna’s first-ever New Zealand concert.
Madonna does not disappoint. Everything you heard, everything you’ve seen, everything you never expected and everything you did – it’s all here.
Pop icon Madonna has shown fans she’s not hanging up the microphone anytime soon with an energetic two-hour performance at Auckland’s Vector Arena last night.
