Remarks:

item.gifThe tour was scheduled to start in Cologne, Germany. However, both shows were cancelled because preparations for the tour weren't finished.

 

item.gifMadonna had to cancel her second show in East Rutherford, because she was suffering from laryngitis. Her first show in Boston was postponed for one day.

 

item.gifHer LA show on september 11th was cancelled because of the terroristic attacks on the US. It was rescheduled on the 15th.

 

item.gifThe 2nd show in Detroit was recorded and live broadcast on TV network HBO. The same show was later released on VHS and DVD.

Cyber-Punk Segment (Water)

item.gifDrowned World / Substitute For Love

item.gifImpressive Instant

item.gifCandy Perfume Girl

item.gifBeautiful Stranger

item.gifRay Of Light

item.gifDrowned World (end line)

 

The first part of the show is heavy cyberpunk and -as she'd call it- acid rock. Madonna appears on stage wearing a Scottish kilt with underneath black trousers. She has a black top with zippers across, and with a see-through sleeve on her left arm. Her right arm is uncovered. She has a bandage on her fore-arm, not from an accident, but to avoid irritation from playing the guitar. Her hair is straight blond, pretty much like the WIFLFAG video.

While she wore a red kilt and black shirt in Europe, she changed to a black & white kilt and polka dot shirt for the US leg. For some shows she even sported another alternative outfit. As the tour progressed, her hair style seemed to get wilder with every show.

Geisha Segment (Wind)

item.gifParadise (Not For Me) (video interlude)

item.gifFrozen

item.gifOpen Your Heart (opening chords)

item.gifNobody's Perfect

item.gifMer Girl (part 1)

item.gifSky Fits Heaven

item.gifMer Girl (part 2)

 

During Paradise Madonna's not seen on stage. There's only four dancers on stage and Madonna on the big screen, in a fantastic prerecorded video. This gives Mo the opportunity to change outfit backstage. Then she appears on stage with a Geisha outfit designed by Arianne Phillips, with 26ft-long sleeves, that slide off during Frozen. She also sports the black wig we remember from the Nothing Really Matters video. Geisha Girl - click to enlarge
Cowgirl Segment (Earth)

item.gifWhat It Feels Like For A Girl (remix interlude)

item.gifI Deserve It

item.gifDon't Tell Me

item.gifHuman Nature

item.gifOh Dear Daddy

item.gifSecret

item.gifGone (in some US shows replaced by You'll See)

 

During the dance remix of WIFLFAG Madonna again disappears for an outfit change. The third part of the concert shows her as a cowgirl, wearing a black leather jacket over a shirt with a US-flag motive and mud-splattered jeans. This cowgirl outfit was provided by designers Dean and Dan Caten of D² (D Squared). Cyber Cowgirl - click to enlarge
Spanish / Ghetto Segment (Fire)

item.gifDon't Cry For Me Argentina (instrumental interlude)

item.gifLo Que Siente La Mujer

item.gifLa Isla Bonita

item.gifHoliday

item.gifMusic

 

The Spanish part of the show is introduced by an instrumental interlude of Don't Cry For Me Argentina. Afterwards Madonna comes out of a big box, wearing a stunning black Gaultier dress with straps over her bare back. She has her hair tied in a bun. For Holiday she's wearing a little red hat (which later is thrown in the public) and a white fur coat. Underneath she has a black shirt with the word 'mother' written on it. No time for sweet cakes though, as the back of her shirt reads 'f*ckers' plus another '***CENSORED*** off' on her guitar strap. Good ol' Maddy! Spanish Girl / Ghetto Girl - click to enlarge

item.gifMadonna's DROWNED WORLD Tour has over 100 tons of equipment. It takes two 747 jumbo jets to fly the equipment to between continents. Eight trucks will bring the equipment from venue to venue.

item.gifThe tour has over 100 tons of equipment. It takes two 747 jumbo jets to fly the equipment between continents. Eight trucks will bring the equipment from venue to venue.

item.gifThe equipment fits into 1500 trunks.

item.gifThe stage is 70 square feet by 70 square feet, i.e. 4,900 square feet.

item.gifThere are 88 traveling production people.

item.gifThe total traveling group is close to 200 people.

item.gif100 local production people are hired for each show.

item.gifRegarding the technology and equipment, it is state of the art, newly made and never before used by an artist or group in Europe. It is a "less is more" philosophy. While it may not have the biggest number of speakers of any tour, the sound quality is crystal clear and of the highest possible quality.

item.gifThe creation of the sound requires 103 "inputs"/signals. All Madonna’s studio engineers who worked on her last two albums including Pat McCarthy, Spike Stent, Mirwais, William Orbit amongst others had input in creating the "marriage" of a studio and flawless live quality sound in concert setting.

item.gifThere are four large video screens on the stage and two in-house screens for close-up viewing.

item.gifThe mechanical bull was manufactured in Cheyenne, Oklahoma and was blessed by a priest there prior to being shipped to Los Angeles for rehearsal. The seat was designed to fit Madonna perfectly.

item.gifThe flying sequence in the "Geisha Girl" section is a "Peter Pan" style fly rig – single cable, non mechanical. Three flying people balance offstage with each of the three flying people – including Madonna.

item.gifFavorite backstage drinks: Red Bull and Starbucks Cappuccino.

item.gifFavorite pill: Advil which is purchased by the case.

Kevin Reagan created a fantastic book with pictures of Regan Cameron, Patrick DeMarchelier, David LaChapelle, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Mark Romanek, Peter Lindberg, Mario Testino, Frank Micelotta, Steven Meisel, Gilles Bensimon & Melodie McDaniels.
