Madonna: The Confessions Tour Live from London
Director: Jonas Åkerlund, Steven Klein Run Time: 121 min. Format: DCP Rating: NR Release Year: 2006
November 9, 2005: The Queen of Pop releases Confessions on a Dance Floor, arguably her 21st Century masterpiece, which ultimately peaks at number one in 40 countries, selling over 10 millions copies… Yet another renaissance for the virtuoso of re-invention, another imperial phase in her unprecedented career…
May 21, 2006: Madonna embarks on her seventh world tour to promote the record – nine months after a highly publicized horseback riding accident. Eight broken bones be damned: the Goddess descends upon us in a million dollar disco ball – and emerges an electro-punk dominatrix, with a body as stunning, svelte, and strapping as a stallion.
Collaborating with the likes of Steven Klein, Jonas Akerlund, Stuart Price, and director Jamie King, Madonna crafted a concert of poetic perfection: adorned with a crown of thorns and hung from a diamond crucifix, she returns to her familiar motifs of redemption and salvation… versions of Get Together and Erotica embody a sophisticated elegance hitherto unseen in her finest work… astounding, sumptuous iconography envelopes history’s greatest mistress of ceremonies, as she whips her audience into a frothy, disco-frenzy… and grinds a studded pommel-horse and glittering boom box into submission…
Get on your knees, for the Queen has one but question to ask: Have you confessed?
On the occasion of Madonna’s birthday, Nitehawk Williamsburg welcomes you to an intimate, midnite screening of the Grammy Award winning The Confessions Tour: Live From London, with pre-party at Lo-Res featuring DJ Chauncey Dandridge.
