MadonnaTribe Exclusive – Sticky & Sweet Set List
• Intro/Candy Shop
The show opener, Candy Shop, has now a longer intro compared to the promo tour version. A musical intro a la Drowned World Tour, sounding very cinematic, like the opening titles of a blockbuster movie, starting with the 4 minutes’ “tick tock” with bits and pieces of songs from Hard Candy (4 Minutes, Give It 2 Me, Beat Goes On) that we will be hearing later in the show fades into the “C-A-N-D-Y” intro from the promo tour.
• Beat Goes On
A standard album version of the song beginning after the Pharrel rap at the end of Candy Shop. Pharrel and Kanye West are doing their thing on video as well.
• Human Nature
Britney will appear on video while Madonna sings the song on stage with her guitar. The idea of the Mash Up with Gimme More has been scrapped but Britney’s new signature phrase “It’s Britney Bitch” is included once at the end of the song.
Played on a new instrumental track based on her 2008 hit 4 Minutes, this version of Vogue also includes a music sample of Nelly Furtado/Timbaland’s Give It To Me during the whole song. An amazing re-invention!
• Video Interlude – Die Another Day
The first video interlude, a fast paced and speeded up version of the James Bond theme Die Another Day, features exclusive new footage of Madonna as a boxeur, from the brand new photoshoot by Tom Munro for the Tour Book.
• Into The Groove
Into The Groove, that contains a small sample of Madonna’s Jump, sees Madonna jumping rope and doing a little bit of pole dancing. The song is delivered using musical parts of the dance hit “Toop Toop” by Cassius.
A nice album version of this great new song by Madonna and Pharrel.
The most vintage song in the show has been totally recreated and turned into a rocky/ska version. Great rock guitars for the most surprising re-invention!
• She’s Not Me
As almost all Hard Candy song this one too is presented in it’s album version incarnation. At one time Madonna reportedly shouts the phrase “I Know I Can Do It Better” in a similar way she did with “Do you think I’m satisfied” in RIT’s American Life.
Known as the Fedde Le Grande mix, the Sticky & Sweet tour version of Music starts with a sample of Last Night A DeeJay Saved My Life by Indeep.
• Video Interlude – Rain/Here Comes The Rain Again
The third video interludes mashes up bit’s of Madonna’s Rain with Eurythmics’ Here Comes The Rain Again, using Eurythmics’ music track.
• Devil Wouldn’t Recognize You
Originally supposed to play piano herself on this one, now Madonna appears on stage on top of it. The song is the album version.
• Spanish Lesson
Album version here too but nicely extended near the end, with the use of Spanish tap dancing and a little hint to Mariachi music thrown in there as well.
• Miles Away
The great ballad version with guitar we already saw at the promo tour.
• La Isla Bonita/Lela Pala Tute
The Live Earth version of La Isla Bonita is being presented on the new tour. Mixed with Romani song Lele Pala Tute and some great fun on stage. Gogol Bordello will make some special appearances on some of the tour dates.
• Doli Doli
It’s a live interlude not sung by Madonna and it’s a Romani/Gyspyy folk song
• You Must Love Me
Madonna is back on stage to close the section with a fierce rendition of the Accademy Award winning song “You Must Love Me” by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Tzigani/Gypsy violins and accordeon make of this song an unforgettable and emotional moment of the show.
• Video Interlude – Get Stupid
Third interlude a la “Sorry” in “Confession Tour”. It’s about saving our planet and saving it NOW. It uses parts of various songs from Hard Candy.
A vocoded “Who Is The Master and Who Is The Slave” (From Voices), “Get Stupid” (From Give It 2 Me), “The Time Is Now” and “You don’t have the luxury of time” (from Beat Goes On) and the “Tick Tock” from “4 Minutes”.
• 4 Minutes
A great version very similar to the promo tour.
• Like A Prayer
The song, that replaces Impressive Instant is another Mash Up, delivered using musical parts of the 1992 dance hit by Felix “Don’t You Want Me”.
• Ray Of Light
Very similar to the Confessions Tour version with Madonna playing her rock guitar!
• Hung Up
The Rock Version you heard at the promo tour has been confirmed for this tour as well.
• Give It To Me
Performed on a music track slightly different from the album version, but it’s not one of the remixes. It has an extended ending on which fans are invited to shout: Give It 2 Me!
