Showtime announced Friday that it will premiere a new concert film from singer Madonna later this year.
The movie “Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour” will debut Dec. 9 at 9 p.m. on the premium cable channel as well as its digital and on-demand platforms. The special will be comprised of behind-the-scenes and performance footage, culminating in a concert held at Sydney Olympic Park in March.
“When it comes to putting on a show, there is only one Madonna — an iconic performer that we’re thrilled to have on our air,” said David Nevins, president and CEO, Showtime Networks. “With her unique creative vision and unmatched stage presence, our viewers will see an arena show packed with visual theatrics, stunning costumes and intricate choreography, featuring new hits and beloved classic songs.”
“Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour” is directed by Danny B. Tull and Nathan Rissman, longtime collaborators with the singer. The 55-city Rebel Heart tour kicked off Sept. 9, 2015 in Montreal and consisted of 82 shows over seven months. The tour was directed by Jamie King with Kevin Antunes serving as musical director.
