Madonna Will Release The ‘MDNA’ World Tour On DVD Next Month

September 10

Back in June, Madonna attended a premiere event in NYC for the EPIX broadcast of her hugely successful MDNA World Tour. Today we learn that the show will be released on DVD/Blue-Ray on September 10 and we get our first look at the cover art for the release. Those of you who attended the concert tour last year know that the MDNA show is pretty spectacular so having the opportunity to watch the show whenever you like at home is a very attractive one. I don’t have EPIX so I haven’t seen the show since Maddy performed here in California last year … so I am really looking forward to the release of the MDNA World Tour DVD next month :)

The highly anticipated and groundbreaking Madonna MDNA World Tour concert film will be released September 10th on DVD, Blu-ray and as a digital album on Live Nation and Interscope Records. Pre-order the DVD and Blu-ray now. The two hour nonstop performance includes songs from Madonna’s MDNA album such as “Girl Gone Wild” and “Gang Bang,” as well as fan favorites including exhilarating versions of “Hung Up,” “Express Yourself,” “Vogue,” “Open Your Heart,” “Like A Prayer” and “Celebration.” The MDNA Tour extravaganza was the most successful single tour of 2012 and was launched in conjunction with Madonna’s MDNA album which debuted in the #1 spot in 35 countries. Presented by Live Nation Global Touring, the MDNA World Tour included 88 sold out shows in 29 countries. Madonna and her ten member band lead by musical director Kevin Antunes and troupe of 27 dancers performed a wild two hour spectacle which included state of the art visuals and sound, hundreds of costume changes that fascinated, enthralled and entertained over 2.2 million fans. “I left my heart on that stage every night,” commented Madonna who personally spent six months editing the footage to perfection for the DVD release in order for fans to have a total in concert experience in their own homes. “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. 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 is my intention,” commented Madonna in a tour manifesto she released to her fans around the globe. Rave reviews included The Dallas Morning News: “The Material Girl proceeds to take us through a song cycle that examined sex, liberation, sin, empowerment, love, addiction, rebellion and finally redemption. She did it all in classic Madonna Style – controversial and eye-popping.” The MDNA World Tour DVD was directed by Danny B. Tull and Stephane Sennour and was produced by Madonna. Executive producers: Arthur Fogel , Guy Oseary and Sara Zambreno. Tour wardrobe was created by Arianne Phillips. Supervising Editor Danny B. Tull. Director of Photography Mark Ritchie.

    I saw the Epix broadcast, and while I loved the show, I was HUGELY disappointed by the editing :(
    Seriously, the cuts were way too fast! Sometimes you could barely see a choreography as a whole.
    Anyways, this tour was really good but nothing beats Confessions Tour in my opinion. That Future Lovers/I Feel Love opening is absolutely EVERYTHING!

      I completely agree! Unfortunately it seems to be something that happens a lot these days with concert film. Britney’s last concert tour, which was also broadcasted on Epix, was very entertaining in real life but all the quick cut during the film version made it seem incredibly boring because it kept cutting of the choreography.

      I wish everyone would just stop doing that! Especially weird because I think I read that Madonna was very involved with the editing of it…
