5 Things You Can Expect at Madonna's Two-Day Concert in Manila
Elaborate props, dazzling designer costumes, and more.
(SPOT.ph) We're just one day away from the Queen of Pop's highly anticipated concert in Manila, and concertgoers are already excited to see what Madonna has in store for her Pinoy fans. Her two-day show, on February 24 and 25 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, marks her first concert in the country with tickets costing as much as P57,750. Here are five things you can expect at the Manila leg of the Rebel Heart Tour.
Madonna will reportedly perform at least 20 songs.
According to setlists that were leaked online, the pop music icon usually performs at least 20 songs a night. The ongoing tour will reportedly have four themed acts: Joan of Arc or Samurai, Rockabilly meets Tokyo, Latin or Gypsy, and Party or Flapper. Each act will have a set of about five songs that span her lengthy music career. (Spoiler: She will definitely be singing "Vogue," complete with her famous dance moves!)
She has also pulled the occasional last-minute surprise performance.
Madonna has been known to occasionally sing a surprise song that usually isn't part of her setlist. For instance, when she stopped by France in September 2015, she sang a mashup of "Material Girl" and Edith Piaf's "La Vie En Rose." Her only backdrop? Her ukelele!
Expect dazzling costume collaborations with top designers.
In true Madonna fashion, the singer will be donning glitzy and elaborate costumes from designers like Alexander Wang, Jeremy Scott, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Gucci's Alessandro Michele. She also confirmed collaborating with her long-time costume designer, Academy Award-nominated Ariane Phillips.
The outrageous production design will blow you away.
Expect Japanese-inspired samurai backdrops, a stylish cabaret set for her 2000 hit song, "Music," a full-on flamenco rendition of "La Isla Bonita," and more.
It will be a party even before Madonna shows up.
Before the Queen of Pop hits the stage, fans will be grooving to beats by female DJ Mary Mac, who has been opening for the Rebel Heart tour since November 2015. DJ Mary Mac's career spans over 20 years, and she's toured and played for artists like Whitney Houston, Run DMC, and more.
