Madonna – Rebel Heart Tour (2017)

The audio release of Madonna’s latest tour is as strong as her other live albums, because it shows the performer’s willingness to reinvent her greatest hits while also highlighting her continuously changing sound. Here, some of the costume-change numbers have bee excised from the audio, as has the majority of Madonna’s rapport with the audience, which unfortunately makes the performance sound forced instead of the warmth and connection shared by Madonna and her adoring audience that we see in the visual recording. Nevertheless, this is fun capture of one of her most playful tours and focuses primarily on material from 2015’s “Rebel Heart,” itself one of her best-ever albums.
