Chiba, Japan, April 13, 1990: Entertainment history changed forever when Madonna – at the pinnacle of her unprecedented, megawatt career – launched her Blond Ambition World Tour… considered by many to be the greatest music spectacle of all time. Armored with Gaultier’s platinum corset and leading a platoon of backup singers and dancers, Madonna unleashes a salvo of pop-punk transubstantiation: provocation, confession, redemption, salvation … a masterfully conceived four-act interpretation of seventeen colossal hits … a catharsis of divine exhibitionism and showmanship.
Originally broadcast on HBO on August 5, 1990, M’s last performance – in Nice, France – became the highest-viewed special event in the cable channel’s history, with 4.5 million viewers tuning in. Hastily released the following year on laserdisc, the concert has since fallen out of print, and remains the Holy Grail for Madonna’s legions of fans.
