Rebel Heart Tour to Premiere on Showtime on December 9th!

Madonna’s anticipated concert film Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour has landed at Showtime for a December 9 premiere.

Co-directed by Danny B. Tull and Nathan Rissman, the documentary film shot around the world, features a collection of live and behind these scenes footage culminating in performances at the Sydney Olympic Park in March of this year.


Produced by Live Nation Global Touring, the Rebel Heart Tour kicked off on September 9, 2015 in Montreal and visited arenas in 55 cities on four continents over seven months. Madonna performed 82 shows, plus a special fan club show in Melbourne. The tour grossed $169.8 Million with 1,045,479 in attendance, making her the top grossing touring female artist in the history of Billboard Boxscore with over $1.31 billion in ticket sales sold over the course of her career.

The set list for the film spans all decades of the iconic superstar’s career, including songs from Rebel Heart (the No. 1 dance hits “Living for Love” and “Bitch I’m Madonna”) to classic fan favorites like “Material Girl” and “Holiday” and a “Dress You Up” medley that included “Get Into The Groove,” “Everybody” and “Lucky Star.” At each tour date during the song “Unapologetic Bitch,” Madonna would bring someone up from the crowd to dance with her during the song. Those guest dancers included Katy Perry, Amy Schumer, Ariana Grande, Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Diplo, Gwendoline Christie, Graham Norton and Anderson Cooper.

“When it comes to putting on a show, there is only one Madonna – an iconic performer that we’re thrilled to have on our air,” said David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc. “With her unique creative vision and unmatched stage presence, our viewers will see an arena show packed with visual theatrics, stunning costumes and intricate choreography, featuring new hits and beloved classic songs.”

The Rebel Heart Tour was directed by Jamie King with musical direction by Kevin Antunes.

Madonna will be honored later this year as Billboard magazine’s 2016 Woman of the Year.

Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour will premiere December 9 at 9 PM on Showtime, on-air, on demand and over the internet.
