Ticket prices are not the only soaring digits for the upcoming Manila leg of Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour. As the tour successfully kicked off in September at Montreal, Canada, producers of the show have released some remarkable numbers.
About 2.5 million Swarovski crystals were adorned in Madonna’s attires featuring luxury brands like Gucci (Alessandro Michele collaboration), Alexander Wang, Fausto Puglisi, Moschino (Jeremy Scott collaboration), Nicolas Jebran, MiuMiu, and Prada—consuming 10,000 hours of workmanship. Add to these 500 pairs of custom-made shoes and 200 pairs of fishnets to be worn by the artist by the time the Rebel Tour wraps.
For the stage, over 2 million LED pixels light up the screens, 140,000 pounds of lights, sound and video equipment utilized every night, and 55,000 pounds the weight of the moveable ramp used multiple times throughout the concert. Seven bouncing sway poles extend over the audience during the performance and four static poles arise from the stage during the show.
There are also 180 people working and traveling on the tour, with another 60 sewing and adjusting the costumes night after night. Finally, dancers perform each concert with the Material Girl.
The concert itself is just as outstanding with 25 string instruments, 13 drums, and 22 videos. A total of 23 songs are part of the set list with iconic hits like “Material Girl,” “Like a Virgin,” “Holiday,” and “Vogue,” as well as smash new songs “Bitch I’m Madonna,” “Iconic,” “Living for Love,” “Ghosttown,” and “Rebel Heart.”
In barely three months, Filipino fans of the Queen of Pop will experience all these as the most-anticipated Rebel Heart concerts take place on February 24 and 25, 2016 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
