I was there at Wembley Stadium and went with my then boyfriend (still best friend) who was most def not a Madonna fan, and at the end of it he was like "holy hell she was incredible" I have to say for me, I saw WTG and BA but not any others, not that they weren't good but this was when she was at her most captivating & show wise it was like nothing I had seen before or since, just magical :)


@T-I'm a Sinner & I like it that way!:)


The Confessions Tour is overall her best tour as far as consistency goes. BA is up there but does feature some flat performances.

To include the Vegas monstrosity that is, The Girlie Show, is downright sinful.


I agree, this 1990 Madonna Tour was Wonderful... however Madonna has done a number of OTHER Terrific Tours since this time (eg 'The Girlie Show' & 'The Confessions Tour'), yet the mainstream press always overlook this!


Madonna the legend! Amen!


Lots of iconic performances on that show. No wonder the mainstream opinion has this as her best tour.

And it is! But I personally love the Girlie Show more, from that Madonna-era. It was so "raw" in a sense.


Not her best tour - people just remember 1990 as her pinnacle. Great to see her in the top 10 regardless.




why is this tour not available on dvd or bluray? I would have loved to have been there but allas was too young at the time. Amazing show from the bootleg copies i've seen - truely at her peak!


& so it should be!!! what memories-i was about 5 rows from the front-& sat on a strangers shoulders all night!!!(im 4 foot 10-he felt very sorry for me!!)i saw her jogging in hyde park too earlier in the was my first time(not school supervised) in amazing crazy day-i will never forget
