Madonna has been receiving rave reviews for her Rebel Heart tour, which kicked off at the very end of August in North America.
The superstar’s Madison Square Garden show was met with a 5-star review by the Guardian, who said ‘there is no other performer like her’.
“Aged 57, Madonna is still palpably hungry, and her performance has an enduring rawness and truth,” reads Alex Needham’s review.
“Unmediated and undiluted, she’s the ringmaster of her own circus, connecting with her hardcore in a totally instinctive way, regardless of the choreography, pyrotechnics and fancy costumes (created by a battery of top fashion designers – but really, who cares?).”
At the Barclays Center gig in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights, Slant Magazine‘s Sal Cinquemani said: “Madonna is a self-proclaimed showgirl, but despite a show clearly choreographed down to each flick of a wrist, she’s never seemed more unscripted.”
Adding: “As far back as 1990’s iconic, game-changing Blond Ambition Tour, her shows have always been theatrical, blending traditional rock-concert tropes with narrative storytelling; Rebel Heart, though, takes it to another level, equal parts Cirque du Soleil, Broadway musical, and burlesque—an immersive experience that redefines the meaning of maximalism.”
“A two-hour spectacle of new sounds and refreshed throwbacks that left even the most repeated ticketholder of the singer surprised and fulfilled,” said The Hollywood Reporter.
Whilst VH1‘s review stated: “The nearly two-hour show was a larger-than-life display of cutting-edge pop showmanship, filled to the brim with zesty costumes, intricate choreography, and a militant, rigid precision that felt other-worldly.”
