Madonna Kicks Off Rebel Heart World Tour In Montreal With Her Pole-Dancing Nuns: 8 Photos
Only a handful of acts in 2015 can pull off an extensive, production-heavy show — and Madonna is leading the pack. The entertainer began her anticipated Rebel Heart World Tour last night (September 9) in Montreal with a slight delay — the first date was meant to be August 29 in Miami — but that didn’t stop Madge from giving it her all.
After an hour-long DJ set by friend and Rebel Heart producer Diplo, Madonna took over the stage with crucifix poles, revealing costumes, cages and yes — the pole-dancing nuns. Mike Tyson and Chance The Rapper also made a video cameo during the performance of Rebel Heart‘s “Iconic.”
The setlist was jam-packed with both old and new favorites, including “Material Girl,” “Holiday, ”True Blue” and “Who’s That Girl” (both of which haven’t been performed since her 1987 tour), ”Deeper and Deeper,” “Like a Virgin;” a “Dress You Up” medley featuring “Get Into The Groove,” “Everybody,” and “Lucky Star; a rendition of the French classic “La Vie en Rose,” and Rebel Heart‘s “Living For Love,” “Body Shop,” “Holy Water” and “Bitch I’m Madonna.”
