Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour (2016)

There’s nothing like a live Madonna show, as we see here in this electrifying recording of her latest tour. With a small army of dancers, costumes, and musicians, as well as a carefully selected playlist of new songs from 2015’s excellent “Rebel Heart” and many of her hits, Madonna tackles the stage like nothing could be more fun or artistically satisfying. It’s a joyful, entertaining and exciting spectacle that shows the performer at her finest, and the production values (both of the show itself and the filmed version) are as top-notch as all her shows have been in the last decade. While there are a number of highlights throughout (including a terrific background video in the opening “Iconic” that features a bloodied Madonna literally suffering for her art), watch for a thunderous, jaw-dropping performance of “Illuminati” and a touchingly gentle rendition of “True Blue.”
