Overview

The Confessions Tour includes a CD of many of Madonna's greatest hits and a DVD of Madge's record-breaking, worldwide tour filmed at London's Wembley Arena. The Confessions Tour Wembley concert was first broadcast on NBC in November 2006. "Like a Virgin," "Hung Up," "Erotica," and "Music" are just a few of the hits found on both the DVD and bonus CD, as well as several songs from her Confessions on a Dance Floor CD. In addition, "The Confessions Tour" DVD features bonus footage not seen in the NBC broadcast, including the full, unedited version of the controversial performance of "Live to Tell," never-before-seen rehearsal footage, and a unique photo gallery. The DVD was directed by Jonus Akerlund, and the show was directed for the stage by Jamie King with musical direction by Stuart Price.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Like I'm Going to Tell You a Secret before it, The Confessions Tour is a CD/DVD souvenir set documenting a new millennium Madonna concert -- this time, a London show at Wembley supporting her 2005 neo-disco album, Confessions on a Dance Floor. Unlike Secret, whose centerpiece was a lengthy documentary, this is a straight-up live album with the DVD capturing a full 21-song set and the CD culling 13 highlights from the set, a whopping eight of them from Confessions ("Sorry" and "Sorry [Remix]" counted separately since they are, after all, indexed separately here). Even if the newer songs don't sound radically different from their album incarnations -- they're either delivered straight or puffed out like extended 12" remixes -- the handful of oldies that do show up here are given disco makeovers: "Like a Virgin" pulses with electro keyboards; "Lucky Star" eventually gives away to the ABBA sample that drives "Hung Up." This helps give the CD on The Confessions Tour a sonic cohesion that's about as stylized and chilly as its accompanying album -- the unity means it holds together, yet that icy reserve means it's not all that much fun to hear, even if the reinterpretations of the 20-year-old hits are interesting. The DVD doesn't feel as cold thanks entirely to the pizzazz of the visuals and the determined efficiency of the show, but even so, this is primarily of interest to the diehards who don't mind purchasing another live CD/DVD set just a year after the first.

Madonna rules again! Her videos are grand and your boyfriend won't mind you watching her live in London. A master star, singer and songwriter, highly talented and doesn't realize it yet. Someone please give her more awards. I love Madonna! Justify your love by investing in this lp, wait til your husband hears it..
