Madonna’s MDNA Concert to Premiere on EPIX
Thursday, 09 May 2013
The MDNA Tour was the most successful and highest grossing tour of 2012 and was seen by over 2.2 million Madonna fans during the course of the 88 sold-out shows around the globe. The concert includes performances of several of her biggest hits including 'Vogue,' 'Like A Prayer' and 'Hung Up.' She also performs songs from her MDNA album including 'Give Me All Your Luvin’,' 'Girl Gone Wild,' 'Gang Bang' and 'Turn Up the Radio.' The album debuted at No. 1 in over 30 countries.
Madonna, along with her seven member band, outstanding troupe of 27 dancers (all clothed in 1500 costumes) and state of the art visuals and sound electrified crowds internationally with what the Material Girl termed 'the hardest but most thrilling and challenging show I’ve ever done.'
'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. It is journey from anger to love and from chaos to order. There are good guys and bad guys to help illustrate this point. Sometimes I play both. It must be watched with an open heart from beginning to end. I am sure if it is viewed this way, you will walk away feeling inspired, invigorated and will want to make the world a better place,' concluded Madonna in describing the show’s intent.
EPIX CEO and President Mark Greenberg commented, 'Madonna’s stunning musical performance and show-stopping moves continue to prove that she is truly a timeless entertainer. We launched the EPIX network with Madonna’s previous tour, Sticky and Sweet, premiering the concert the first night that EPIX was on air. We are very excited to have her back on the network.'
The MDNA Show was directed by Danny Tull and Stephane Sennour. Tull has worked with Madonna editing previous shows and her feature film W.E.
EPIX, launched in 2009, is the first multiplatform premium network offering thousands of hit movies and special events featuring marquee talent for fans to view on television and across hundreds of Internet connected devices.

The Sticky and Sweet tour was broadcast on cable before the DVD release, so I don't think MDNA on Epix means there won't be DVD/CD release. I'm hoping for a Bluray. 3D would be fun -- Kylie Minogue did that with her Aphrodite tour. I'm also awaiting DVD releases of Blond Ambition and Reinvention. Blurays of everything is a dream of mine ;)

What's to prevent anyone recording it? And why would one buy the dvd after if they could record it? Unless it's out on dvd by then.

Great!!! I want to watch it now!! Ah it´s not the same watching it on you tuve, I prefer the original DVD or blu ray. I have no watched it yet and I have no done it before with the other concerts either.

Hi ngl! Agree totally, but would also point out (although I guess you may have meant this anyhow) that the ReInvention Tour hasn't ever actually been released officially PERIOD! As much as I love IGTTYAS, I want the FULL concert!

Ughhh....I loved the show and saw it from the Triangle twice, but that poster....I think I've had the non-stop coverage of Cleveland on too long because all I can do is look at the chains and think "that's probably not appropriate right now..."

The only problem with Madonna's recent DVD releases is that they've been way over-produced, especially Sticky & Sweet.

Wow !! Finally I can't wait to see it !!

@Peter- I agree entirely with your wishes surrounding the MDNA Tour DVD/CD release.
I find it Astonishing that two of Madonna's best concerts, 'The Blond Ambition Tour 1990' & 'The Reinvention Tour 2004', have still not received a DVD/ BluRay Release!!!
C'mon Madonna, no more 'hesitation'!

Who wants some crappy youtube version - I want a properly edited proper 1080p 5.1+ Blu-ray (and also full live album).
Whilst you can see it on youtube it's not as good as a proper release - the quality is just not there.

People, the whole concert has been on youtube for months.
