When Madonna toured with all-theatre Madame X Tour it captivated sold-out audiences worldwide with its unparalleled intimacy. This rare and unforgettable experience was beautifully documented in Madame X, her 2021 concept film and digital soundtrack. This summer, the soundtrack will make its vinyl debut as a 3-LP set that includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks.
Available on September 22nd, MADAME X: MUSIC FROM THE THEATER XPERIENCE showcases 22 powerful live performances of songs that span the remarkably different eras of Madonna’s iconic career, including her ninth #1 album, Madame X. The upcoming collection introduces exclusive live performances of “Crave” (featuring Swae Lee) and “Sodade,” two songs that did not appear on the digital soundtrack.
MADAME X: MUSIC FROM THE THEATER XPERIENCE was recorded in January 2020 in Lisbon, Portugal, during Madonna’s Madame X Tour. It was her first time performing live in smaller venues since her 1985 Virgin Tour. Notably, her 2008 Sticky & Sweet Tour still holds the record for the highest-grossing concert tour ever by a female artist.
The Madame X tour introduced the world to Madonna’s fearless persona, Madame X, a secret agent traveling the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom, and bringing light to dark places. Mesmerizing performances of several songs from Madame X (Madonna’s 14th studio album) are part of the soundtrack, including “Dark Ballet,” “I Rise,” and “I Don’t Search I Find,” which topped the Hot Dance Club Songs chart in 2020 to become her 50th #1 hit. The soundtrack also features live versions of global favourites like “Vogue,” “Human Nature,” “Like A Prayer,” and “Frozen.”
MADAME X: MUSIC FROM THE THEATER XPERIENCE will be released as a 3LP set on black vinyl to all retailers, as well as a special limited-edition 3LP picture disc, available exclusively through Madonna.com, Rhino.com and Warner Music Group D2C stores around the world.
With over 300 million records sold worldwide, Madonna reigns as the best-selling female artist of all time. Her celebrated career has earned countless accolades, including seven Grammy Awards, 24 ASCAP Pop Music Awards, and numerous international trophies, including BRIT, Bravo Otto, Danish Music, Edison, GAFFA, International Dance Music, Ivor Novello, Juno, MTV, and World Music Awards, among many others. In 2008, she was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Madonna kicks off The Celebration Tour with four sold-out dates at London’s The O2 Arena on October 14th 2023.
