item.gifErotica

item.gifFever

item.gifVogue

item.gifRain (with 'Just My Imagination' interlude)

To start off her most sexual show ever, Madonna emerges at a dancing pole in a circle of light, dressed in a black Dolce & Gabbana S&M outfit: knee-high boots, hotpants, bra, gloves, mask & a whip. Unlike on other tours, her hair is short & straight platinum blond. Cheered on by the crowd, her top and mask come off as she kicks off Fever. She quickly changes into a jewel-encrusted bra and a matching tiara to perform Vogue. For the less sexual Rain, she covers up with a long black robe. The pierrot and the dancers re-enact Singing In The Rain during the outro of the song. Dominatrix Segment
Studio 54 Segment

item.gifExpress Yourself

item.gifDeeper And Deeper

item.gifWhy's It So Hard

item.gifIn This Life

item.gifThe Beast Within (interlude)

The party has started as Madonna descends on a giant disco ball, wearing a blond afro wig, colourful disco rags and matching platform shoes. As the tour moved to the southern hemisphere, she changed the trunks for purple hotpants. Madonna and her dancers turn up the disco feel of Deeper And Deeper with fluo boa's. Wig, rags and morals come off for the orgy that leads to Why's It So Hard. Madonna disappears offstage as the crowd is treated to some dancer eye candy during The Beast Within interlude. Studio 54 Segment
Weimar Cabaret Segment

item.gifLike A Virgin

item.gifBye Bye Baby

item.gifI'm Going Bananas

item.gifLa Isla Bonita

item.gifHoliday

The time machine spins further, from 70s disco to 30s cabaret, as Madonna pays homage to Marlène Dietrich in the film Morocco, complete with tuxedo, cane and top hat, with a bandana underneath. The gender bending is even more present in Bye Bye Baby, where Madonna plays the Master of Ceremonies, from Bob Fosse's Cabaret. As the lady boys go bananas, they strip off to reveal a striped navy shirt that reminds of Gene Kelly in Anchors Aweigh, who further inspires Madonna's moves for La Isla. Adding a long navy coat, Madonna drills her dancers in a military version of Holiday. Weimar Cabaret Segment

item.gifJustify My Love

item.gifEverybody (with 'Everybody Is A Star' intro)

In an anachronistic encore performance, the sensual and erotic insinuations of Justify My Love are delivered by Madonna and her dancers in Edwardian era outfits, inspired by My Fair Lady. An androgynous Madonna stands out, mixing both male and female fashion elements.

A lot less fashion glamourous is the final encore Everybody, where she appears in simple denim shorts and a shirt of the national soccer team of the country she's visiting. As the curtains have gone down, the pierrot appears one last time to say good-bye to the crowd. That crowd goes wild when he takes off his mask to reveal nobody else than our girl herself.
