Shes smoked weed in the past she admitted she was stoned on Letterman. It depends who she goes out with another producer or rapper I cant remember said he went to her house and lit up. She didnt mind a and had a toke but passed it back to him after saying 'I dont like it'. But didnt mind him smoking it. 

Same as extacy, shes admitted shes had it before and JPG said hes had extacy with her.   Shes lived a full life, who cares?

So what should be the cover image? I can't decide?? I did a mock-up of the live album. Went with one of Steven Klein's images as I thought it should've been the tour poster what with the red curtain and all  - it's perfect! But a live image is always good.

Listening to this live rehearsal, and so very close to opening night, you have to think. Did they really decide to go into this opening thinking “Yep, Trike a pose sounds right”? :Madonna020:
you have to wonder because they completely fixed it for IGTTYAS

The only part I find remotely alarming was 'DOOOOOONT TELL ME TO STAPPPPPPP', lie calm down lady you have a microphone.

Will we ever hear a LIVE band on tour with M again???? The instruments in the new leaked DWT soundboard are EARGASMIC.

I doubt it. She clearly doesn't value the sound of a live band... which is fine, it's her choice. Personally I think it sounds shit by comparison but I'm not Madonna. I just find it very lazy that a concert with such a budget can't even hire the basics of a few guitarists, a bassist, a real drummer and a keyboardist and actually have them play something that can be heard in the mix.

Drums and bass can make a huge difference by themselves. They'd me enough for me.

I dunno, maybe she thinks it’s too much work for a band to decipher her new music style? Musically I find it difficult to. Her old hits were much much easier to replicate. But I think DWT was a great example of what she could do with a band musically while incorporating electronic mixes. That was the last tour where it was very clear there was a band in the room. I’d love to see that again. Looking back, while being too young to see her earlier shows, you can clearly make out the song just by the baseline alone. Now it’s all over the mf place.

Im confused...  She's had a band in every single show she's ever done up to Rebel Heart.

Yeah but they weren't playing particularly live. What you hear on the vast majority of performances from 2004 onwards is a pre-recorded track with the occasional flicker of live instrumentation. Notice how on the bootlegs of every tour up until 2001 you hear variances in the sound between shows, little ad-lib rids and the occasional mistake... but since 2004 it's literally a pre-recorded show with live lead vocals for the most part.  Even the backing vocals now are generally just the backing singers appearing to mime Madonna's prerecorded album vocals in the background.

It's a shame. The live sections of the last tours sounded great, such as the acoustic part of RHT, and the incredible Shes Not Me outro on S&S. The drummer on Girlie Show was incredible also, and the overall WTG band was just terrific. BAT was a bit of a dip musically because it seems to utilise far more prerecorded elements than she ever had so far.

I'm not for a second doubting band is literally playing and singing live, but it isn't being fed through to the audience, the audience is clearly hearing a tape instead.  Except the piano on S&S, I refuse to acknowledge that was even a  real piano, it was probably just a prop.

THIS!!! You can clearly hear the differences in the 2001 and 2004 recordings that just leaked!

The DWT audio is so powerful. Oh, those percussions!!! Even The funny song sounds great! And the backup vocals are fantastic. Pity because in MXT Munchie and Yahzarah are wonderful vocalists: remember Crazy on Instagram? But in the theatre we heard the album version. Same for Frozen and the string trio. Or Gaspar on guitar on Killers.

The RIT audio sounds "fake". The ideas are great, the arrangements are strong, but the live sound is gone.

There’s actually lots of live instrumentation on RIT which is noticeable when you compare the rehearsals with the Lisbon leak and the IGTTYAS-versions. The guitar intro on Nothing Fails sounds quite different in each version, sometimes, there are additional synth sounds in EY, there is an electric guitar during the verses of Frozen that is more or less prominent in the mix depending on the recording you’re listening too.

In terms of live instrumentation RIT is of course a step down compared to DWT but we’re not yet at the point where she’d basically sing over the album instrumentals of her new songs. That only started with S&S.

You are totally right, what I meant is that listening to the two tours back to back you realize how things were changing. But the karaoke and albums instrumentals were yet to come...

From this point of view MXT was very disappointing, because she had great musicians and because you can have a great live sound inside a theatre. But many songs were exactly album versions.

And from what we're seeing, if there ever was a single note played live on stage, we won't get it in the dvd.

I am gonna agree and disagree.  When I am at the show, it definitely sounds and feels live.  I think the DVDs are mostly prerecorded.  She needs to stop with the editsing and give us a Who's that Girl tour experience.  I have never been to a Madonna tour where it was not evident that she was singing live 90 percent of the time.  The DVDs are where I take issue.  She is great live but needs to share that with her fans on the recordings.
