Madonna’s Rebel Heart is the essence of a 21st Century grand production show, a concert that was created by the world’s best designers, craftsmen and experts in every field. This production is one to savor for its entertainment values and to appreciate for all of the creative efforts and money that make it such a royal event for today’s modern audiences.
 
The changing imagery and themes keep the show alive challenging the audience with surprises so fast,
 they cannot look away.
Madonna’s Rebel Heart combines a kaleidoscope of vivid colors, videos, dazzling special effects and everything else her experts could add.
 
The non-stop drama and emotion in each scene tells stories of Samurai warriors, stripper nuns, flappers, Jesus’ Last Supper and more, all in Madonna’s EXPLOSIVE style.
 
Madonna’s dance numbers are interactive, very personal with mutual touching and double entendre. This is truly Madonna’s show, she provides her vast reservoir of talent to make it all happen!
 
Madonna’s quick costume changes made me wonder where or when did she have time to switch? Madonna should be complimented on her ability to sing during the show instead of lip-syncing as some other entertainers do.  Her stamina holds during the high-energy dance routines for over 2-1/2 hours.
 
I have been reviewing Las Vegas shows since the 80’s and vividly remember those multi-million dollar spectacular production shows. Their heavy walls and enormous sets took time for the stage crew to move.
 
That was when the specialty acts appeared to fill-in and Siegfried and Roy began at the Tropicana’s “Folies Bergére Show.
 
Bally’s “Jubilee is one of the few old-style settings today.
 
With today’s electronic media and computer graphics, we hardly realize when reality begins when the sets change.  The visual experience creates the impression that there is a set yet maybe not.
 
The audience does not realize all of the back stage influences, all that it takes to put Madonna’s show together.
 
The set list pulled deeply from this year’s "Rebel Heart" album, opening with “Iconic” and moving through eight more of Madonna’s new tunes, including “HeartBreakCity,” which she performed on a spiral staircase, and “Living for Love,” presented here in a thumping trance remix.
 
Madonna's Rebel Heart will visit 20 cities in North America and 16 cities in Europe and the UK through the end of 2015 with additional concert dates in the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia already confirmed for 2016. The Rebel Heart World Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring. A full list of tour dates and ticket information is below and can also be found at:
