The MDNA Tour Premiere Screening Tonight!
Are you ready for MDNA?

MDNA: 'You never know what you're going to get'

Madonna still matters.
That’s the message of Madonna: The MDNA Tour, a documentary that chronicles her top-grossing 2012 worldwide tour. Ostensibly a concert film, The MDNA Tour also sheds light on the impact Madonna has had on a generation of artists, dancers, and general fans who refuse to conform for conformity’s sake.
Director Danny Tull, who’s edited several of Madonna’s recent projects, including W.E., took a close-up look at the icon’s legendary drive, cutting the best moments of 88 different shows into one cohesive documentary. “There was just a mammoth amount of footage to get through and find that perfect shot for her,” says Tull, who literally worked his fingers to the bone in the editing suite for six months. “On ‘Like a Prayer,’ there must be [cuts of concerts from] 50 countries inside that song alone. It was really intense. I think I looked down one day and I was like, ‘Oh, my fingers are about to fall off.’ But it was worth it.’”
By the end, Tull knew the ins and outs of the concert perhaps better than Madonna herself, but she still never ceased to surprise him. “The interesting thing with her is you never know what you’re going to get,” he says. “She always brings something different to the table. Maybe fans had known it before, but I think her Olympian spirit will be reinforced again [with the doc]. It’s just unbelievable, the pace of the show. It’s just non-stop. It’s very difficult to keep up.”
Madonna still matters - you’d better believe it!

@T The point I was making was that Kylie releases all her tours as both dvd/Blu-ray and full-live album. Madonna either doesn't release a "full" live album or does something like this!

Where is The Virgin tour, Blond Ambition, Re-invention tour and now MDNA tour on dvd/Blu-ray.

I didn't see Aphrodite Tour in person - but hey at least I got to fricking watch it in full in the comfort of my own home.

Madonna is one of my all time favourite artists but I'm not a blind-fanboy like you "T" and don't feel like I have to curb my opinions.


lol@peter - Kylie is a Vegas performer, did you see her Aphrodite tour? lol. Madonna is an arena/stadium performer. She sets the bar, not takes advice from lower class showgirls.


WHAT?! It's not the full tour a'la Sticky and Sweet, Confessions tour, The Girlie show etc...??


As a fan I want the tour + full live album, any documentary should be an extra on the dvd/Blu-ray not the main event. Grrrghhh!

Disappointed, :(, please M + team go have a talk with Kylie and her team for some tips on producing tour + live album.

I'll still buy it, obviously, cause it's Madonna, but am so gutted as I never got to see it live myself.


Sounds cool - but I also like the plain concert videos like The Girlie Show Live In Sydney. I hope it's a lot of concert and a few 'Truth or Dare' moments.


Wow another master piece. ! I can't wait to see it


She works hard and she earns her pay. That is admirable and worth emulating. ALL HAIL THE QUEEN!
