Pop star Madonna was on sparkling form last night for the launch of her world tour.
The singer showed herself to be in peak fitness at a packed concert in the Great Western Forum in Los Angeles.
The date was the first of 50 for the Re-Invention tour which will see the singer perform in the US, Canada and Europe.
Her entourage includes more than 100 people travelling on the road, 56 security guards working backstage and 12 dancers.
A truck houses her wardrobe and make-up and she has also made provision for a children’s playroom backstage.
An estimated 750,000 fans are expected to see the show, which arrives in the UK in August.
