The MDNA Tour extravaganza has been the most successful single tour of 2012 and was launched in conjunction with Madonna's MDNA album which debuted in the #1 spot in 35 countries. Presented by Live Nation Global Touring, the MDNA World Tour included 88 sold out shows in 29 countries. Madonna and her ten member band lead by musical director Kevin Antunes and troupe of 27 dancers performed a wild two hour spectacle which included state of the art visuals and sound, hundreds of costume changes that fascinated, enthralled and entertained over 2.2 million fans. "I left my heart on that stage every night," commented Madonna who personally spent six months editing the footage to perfection for the DVD release in order for fans to have a total in concert experience in their own homes.
"My show is a journey.. the journey of a soul from darkness to light. It is part cinematic musical theatre, part spectacle and sometimes intimate performance art. I know people can relate to it. It's very important to me as an artist that my show not be taken out of context. It must be watched with an open heart from beginning to end.. I am sure if it is viewed this way, the viewer will walk away feeling inspired, invigorated and will want to make the world a better place.. And this of course is my intention," commented Madonna in a tour manifesto she released to her fans around the globe.
Rave reviews included The Dallas Morning News: "The Material Girl proceeds to take us through a song cycle that examined sex, liberation, sin, empowerment, love, addiction, rebellion and finally redemption.. She did it all in classic Madonna Style - controversial and eye-popping."
The MDNA World Tour DVD was directed by Danny B. Tull and Stephane Sennour and was produced by Madonna. Executive producers: Arthur Fogel , Guy Oseary and Sara Zambreno. Tour wardrobe was created by Arianne Phillips.

''Turn Up The Radio'' video and single: News Recap
Let's take one moment to recap the information MadonnaTribe brought to you from June 8th on about the new Madonna single and video.
As you all know by now, the video for "Turn Up The Radio" has been indeed filmed in Florence between the MDNA tour dates in Italy and Spain, just like we reported two weeks ago.
Post production and editing is expected to take roughly four weeks and current plans are to release the new video in mid July, right in the middle of the European tour dates, at the same time of a digital and physical single.
"Turn Up The Radio" already received a remixed treatment with three versions appearing on the special Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange digital albums for the US and UK market, and two new remixes have also been commissioned for the single release.
Interscope will release the new "Laidback Luke" and "R3HAB" versions commercially, but the three existing remixes by Leo Zero, Richard Vission and Marco V should remain exclusive to Smirnoff due to prior licensing agreements.
The entire lot of five is expected to be serviced to clubs in promo format.
The new Madonna video for "Turn Up The Radio" will be shot in Florence this coming weekend!
Last FridayMadonnaTribe broke the news that the shooting for the videoclip for the new single off "MDNA" was planned for the break between the concert dates in Florence and Barcelona.
Today we can add that the location is the beautiful city of Florence and that filming is scheduled to take place this weekend. Tom Munro will be directing and the video is supposed to be ready to premiere in mid-July.
Madonna sat down for a press junket and met members of the Italian press at her hotel in Rome this afternoon. She was described as "simply fabulous" in a light blue Dolce & Gabbana dress with black polka dots.
The media outlets she met - and that you should keep an eye on in the next few hours for their interviews are leading national newspaper "la Repubblica" in both its online and printed editions, tv network "Dee-jay TV" and "RDS" radio.
RDS, which is also a partner of the Italian leg of the MDNA Tour, will air the Madonna interview hosted by radio anchor Anna Pettinelli tomorrow evening at 8.
MadonnaTribe has heard some fresh news about the third single from MDNA.
"Turn Up The Radio", the brilliant Summer anthem written by Madonna, Martin Solveig, Michael Tordjman, Jade Williams and produced by Madonna and Martin Solveig
has already received a remixed treatment with three versions appearing on the special Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange digital albums for the US and UK market, but now two new remixes have also been commissioned for the single release:
The new remixes are: Turn Up The Radio (Laidback Luke feat. Far East Movement Remix) Turn Up The Radio (R3HAB Mix)
The versions appearing on the US edition of the "Smirnoff" digital album are - as you already know: Turn Up The Radio (Leo Zero Remix) Turn Up The Radio (Richard Vission Speakers Blow Remix)
And the one premiered by the UK edition of the "Smirnoff" promotional album is of course Turn Up The Radio (Marco V Remix)
Interscope will be able to release commercially the new "Laidback Luke" and "R3HAB" versions of Turn Up The Radio, but the three existing remixes will remain exclusive to the "Smirnoff" releases due to previous licensing agreements.Anyway, the entire lot of five will be serviced to clubs in promo format.
If you've been worried by the effect that the delay between the release of the previous MDNA singles had on the charts when the video, digital and physical releases did not take place at the same time, another great news is that the plan this time is to release the new video and the two new remixes at the same time.
Stay tuned to MadonnaTribe, the Home of Madonna Fans for more exciting news to come!

Have the first look at the spankin' new Girl Gone Wild CD Single. As reported first here on MadonnaTribe on March 21st, the two track single will hit the Italian stores on April 17 while the vinyl has been pushed back one more week.
Also this week, as previously reported, the MDNA album is released on 12'' vinyl while the Girl Gone Wild Picture Disc will come out the following week (April 20 / 23 / 24).
Click the images below to enlarge - worth noticing is that there is no "MADONNA" name on the iconic cover which is the same of the digital release, but she's featured on the disc artwork with the same "smokey" lettering of the song title.
This week's official Italian Album Chart will be announced later today, but MadonnaTribe can report that MDNA - Madonna's first album with Universal Music Group's Interscope label - continues the tradition of Number One debuts for the Madonna studio albums in Italy and will break into the list straight to the top when the charts is published by FIMI/GFK today.
The design of the Madonna Tour stage in Tel Aviv has been heavily debated in these pages over the past weeks, for being the first one that was described in details by the local concert promoter at the time the 2012 tour was announced, and for being the first one to show the "hovering satellite" stage layout and not that with the triangular pit area.
For weeks, we were uncertain about the "V shaped" design being the one used for all the tour dates, and we were left speculating about one layout being developed for the stadiums, and another for the arenas.
Even when Madonna's manager Guy Oseary clearly stated that they were going to have a pit on each and every date, some ticket vendors continued using maps using the single catwalk design, but now the second Israeli dates will probably set all rumours to quiet, because as you can see by the image below that MadonnaTribe can share with the fans, the map of the Ramat Gan Stadium has now been updated with the latest version of the stage - the same that was used in the seat plans for the NIA in Birmingham.
Check out, in the image below, the previous design for the first concert in Tel Aviv on May 29, with the single catwalk and the satellite stage, and the new one on the right, from the May 31 show, with the V shaped design and the pit.
