Rebel Heart Tour: Quebec City Fan Pictures 1
'Edmonton! You were lovely and amazing!'

Madonna's first Edmonton show a dancetastic celebration

More than 14,000 fans got into the groove, vogued, and expressed themselves during Our Lady of Pop’s inaugural visit to Edmonton.

Sunday’s dancetastic celebration of love, nakedness and religion was the first of two at Rexall Place - and the only two Alberta dates on her Rebel Heart tour, which has already grossed $20 million US from just 10 concerts.

Highlights: Uh, her mere presence? Madonna released her very first album in 1983 - and we’ve had to wait 32 years for the controversial dance-pop diva to find the E-spot.

She’s not nearly as shocking as she was in the ’80s or ’90s, but the 57-year-old mother of four still proved to be a rebel at Sunday’s show.

She pole-danced with strippers 'dressed' as nuns as she sang Holy Water - a throbbing number from her 13th and latest album, Rebel Heart - which ended with a bunch of her dancers re-enacting the Last Supper.

She strummed a ukulele, while sitting on a pile of tires, as she sang True Blue. She pushed one of her male dancers from the top of a spiral staircase during HeartBreakCity, a maudlin love-gone-wrong number, also from Rebel Heart.
