Madonna : Rebel Heart Tour will premiere on Showtime on December 9 at 9 PM ET/PT on-air, on demand and over the internet. Madonna : Rebel Heart Tour was shot around the world and features a collection of live and behind these scenes footage culminating in performances at the Sydney Olympic Park in March of this year.
The film is co-directed by Danny B. Tull and Nathan Rissman, both of whom have worked extensively with Madonna on her feature films and tour movies. Madonna will be honored later this year as Billboard magazine’s 2016 Woman of the Year award, at a star-studded event held in conjunction with the publication of Billboard‘s Women in Music list, which identifies the 50 most powerful female executives in the industry each year.

“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 set list for Madonna : Rebel Heart Tour, spans all decades of the iconic superstar’s illustrious 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. Memorable highlights from the tour include her first-ever live concert performance of Take a Bow, acoustic versions of Like A Prayer, Secret and Don’t Tell Me. At each tour date during the song Unapologetic Bitch, Madonna would bring someone up from the crowd to dance with her during the song. Some nights it was a fan, another night it was Katy Perry. Other guest dancers included: Amy Schumer, Ariana Grande, Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Diplo, Gwendoline Christie, Graham Norton and Anderson Cooper.
