Information

"Let's break all the rules we can," said Madonna and created this show through both - Christianity and sexuality. Blond Ambition was more of a theatrical play rather than a traditional rock show. It changed the music and touring business forever. Although Madonna continued with this theatrical formula for the rest of her career, her tour could hardly be such revolutionary like the Blond Ambition Tour. Madonna performed the most important hits from her early career - Holiday, Like A Virgin, Live To Tell, Papa Don't Preach, Like A Prayer, Express Yourself and of course, the latest dance smash Vogue. All of these hits, provocative choreographers, semi-naked dancers, fabulous costumes provided by the icon himself Jean-Paul Gaultier - the Blond Ambition tour became the most perfect music show of the queen of pop. It's still a legendary piece of art at the top of the list for many fans.

Madonna's show even upset the Pope who called for the tour's cancellation. And in Toronto, police arrived to observe the infamous masturbation scene during the Like A Virgin performance. According to Madonna herself, the main idea behind the show was not to shock at the first please, but celebrate love, life, and humanity and most importantly, to make people think, to push their buttons, both entertain and ask questions.

A new-style documentary called Truth or Dare (U.S.) / In Bed With Madonna (Europe) was filmed during the tour. It mapped Madonna's life and privacy during her traveling around the world. It showed the life of her, her dancers, backing vocalists, and other crew indiscreetly. It evens shows Madonna's relationship with her father, brothers Christopher and Martin and Warren Beatty. The movie's director Alec Keshishian was allowed to follow Madonna 24 hours per day. Although the movie itself was edited in black and white, it contains some of the music performances in full color unavailable otherwise. It premiered in Cannes in 1991.

Although 30 years have passed, we have never had a proper DVD / Blu-ray release. You can read more about it in the separate article below. On February 25, 1992 Madonna won the Grammy award for Blond Ambition in the Best long-form music video category.

At the end, the tour earned $60 and the profit of the last show was donated to support HIV reseach.

Video

One of the little number of physical formats released on October 1st 1990 was an American laserdisc with a show in Nice, France. Unfortunately it's been deleted for a long time and the whole laserdisc format is dead nowadays. Besides this another laserdisc was released in Japan. It has the Yokohama, Japan show, as well as the VHS released there. In these days there ale lots of bootlegs available all over internet, for example with the Houston show to name one.

Some of the performed songs made it to the Truth Or dare documentary and the whole show was broadcast by HBO. The special became the most successful program of the channel. Czech fans were treated with a live broadcast from Barcelona, Spain in the Czechoslovakian TV channel F1 on August 1st 1990.

Even though Madonna or her manager Guy Oseary mention plans for a DVD from time to time, this has never been releases as for today.
