Thanx a lot, but I've got some real news now :cute:

From another M forum: seems that a friend of a user is outside of the theatre in a point where he's able to hear some far sounds from the rehearsals. Here's what is happening: she rehearsed the album version of Crazy, the announced sequence Future and Like a Prayer, wich was described as glorious with the Batukadeiras voices, then the remixed version of Crave (and I'm more and more disappointed as Crave is my favourite track on the album and I HATE remixes wich make every song sound the same) and Like it or not. I will continue to update here if there will be more news, as it seems they're turning down the volume at the moment. Following I include the link to the two samples shared till now.

From a 2017 interview:

How do you put a show like this together? Where do you get the ideas?

Everything's based around my song choice. So first, I go through my catalogue of songs with my band and I start working on things that excite me and inspire me in the moment. Some songs I'm sick of doing and I don't want to do them. Other songs I say, "No, I did that on the last tour, I don't want to do it again."

So I try to rotate things and I also try to reflect my current mood and what I've been feeling, and what's been inspiring me artistically or filmically, politically, philosophically. I try to put songs together in groups that have thematic connection, and then I try to tell a story. And then I do the visuals. It's quite a process.

What are the songs you don't want to do again?

Well, I tend to not want to do the songs I did on the tour before. That's what I mean. So if I did Material Girl on the tour before, or Express Yourself on the tour before, then I'll say, "OK, I did that for 88 shows. I can't do it again."

How do you keep a healthy balance between new songs and your back catalogue?

It's just playing in rehearsal. It's really hard for me, especially with my older songs, to do them with the original arrangement. Because 33 years later, after doing it for so long, you just have to reinvent things. Well, I do.

And it's fun for me to take an '80s pop song and turn it into a salsa song, or turn it into a samba, or make an uptempo song into a ballad.

According to the guys who were outside of the theatre last night, these are the songs she rehearsed: started with God Control and Dark Ballet, she then performed in casual order Frozen, Human nature, Future, Like a Prayer, Medellin, Crazy, Come Alive, Sodade (apparently a kind of samba arrangement) and Crave (remix ... such a pity imo). Here is the link of the Like a Prayer rehearsal and, for what they heard, sounded like the Eurovision arrangement. Don't know, keeping my finger crossed for surprises, but not that excited at the moment. Sad about that, it's the first time this is happening to me.

Not mentioned at the moment @Bat-Fan, not from last night rehearsals, not in any rumoured setlist from the last week ... I would have liked it too, as my best feelings are for the new backing singers she's working with, gorgeous and strong voices, and EY need a perfect vocal balance to gain its full potential

We all want Rescue me more than any other song...! I hope they know !

 

(Personally LAP in the Eurovision version is the worst idea ever... Shitty version, bad souvenir...)

Don't count me wanting "Rescue Me" more than any other song. I love other songs way more than "Rescue Me". It's ok if she ditched it imo. I trust her and what works for her in this show with the theme and content.

That's just plain evil to think of Rescue Me like that.

Seriously? That one had its appearance on the MDNA Tour. She should really do songs she has never done before like the power of goodbye or nothing really matters. Rescue me would also be great and to be intimate with her fans since its a theatre tour after all, she should do either of these to end the tour:

The Power Of Goodbye

Take A Bow

I'll Remember

 

take a bow only made a few appearances on RHT so as frozen but frozen should also come back as it's actually a highlight of ray of light.

Justify my love & Erotica mixed with Rescue Me & I dont search would sound amazing Meshed up, but if she performs IDSIF alone, count me out. I would prefer vogue over a bootleg cheap sounding cover of Vogue mesh with erotica. 😒

If M was smart she'd go back right over her catalogue and select songs which fit in with the Madame X story. Seriously 'Words' from Erotica is a very MadameX persona track and there are a few others as well.

A gut instinct tells me that M should have collaborated with an opera or musical director for this show to bring the who perfomance into one solid piece, yet it's sounding more like a variety show performance.
