Product Description

She is arguably the most famous entertainer in the world--a genius at changing her image and music in order to stay on top of and innovate the latest trends. The Detroit-born phenomenon's 2001 DROWNED WORLD TOUR was her first in years, and sold out quickly all over America. Broadcast as a special HBO event, the concert featured Madonna's typically elaborate choreography, sets, and lighting. Filmed near her hometown of Detroit, at the Palace in Auburn Hills, Michigan, this special captures the Material Girl singing and dancing to new and old hits, including "Candy Perfume Girl," "Beautiful Stranger," and "La Isla Bonita."


The Queen of Pop has done it again and offered her fans and music impresarios alike a musical performance to be remembered. Madonna: Drowned World Tour--filmed in her home town of Detroit on August 26, 2001--is an amazing pop concert and a visually stunning modern-dance and multi-media piece encompassing all the recent incarnations of this chameleon-like performer. Never one to shy away from championing new styles, both in clothes and music, Madonna is still as raunchy as she was on her Erotica tour, but the Drowned World Tour also offers a much more effeminate and intelligent side to her performance. This time we see a Geisha/Japanese performance during "Frozen" and a jokey southern-belle line-dancing romp during "Don't Tell Me".

The monarch of performance has also discovered the best way to undergo an elaborate costume change without keeping your audience waiting--simply ply them with stunningly directed music videos on a multitude of screens and hang two solitary male dancers upside down to perform feats of dance perfection. This truly impressive show holds as much for Madonna fans as it does for anyone who is interested in studying modern performance and dance routines--and Madonna is certainly well versed enough to teach in this field with almost 20 successful years in the business. The Drowned World Tour--rumoured to be her last live show--goes to prove that Madonna still reigns supreme.

On the DVD: Although the special features are hardly a ray of light--simply an impressive photo gallery and some Web links--the picture and sound on this DVD are excellent. As a champion of all things new Madonna's DVD uses a picture perfect format of 4:3, and superb sound quality: with a choice of Dolby Digital 2.0, 5.1 and DTS 5.1 you'll feel like you're at the concert in a prime seat. Another impressive feature is the ability to view the song lyrics, allowing you to strut around your living room like a prima donna with this glamorous version of Karaoke! --Nikki Disney

The Drowned Tour 2001 was fantastic. I was there. 4th July, 2001. Breathtaking, exciting, scary, amazing, awesome, the list could go on. Madonna flies, becomes a rock chick, a geisha, a ghetto fabulous star, a country girl, again the list is endless. From the very beginning, Drowned World Subsititute for love, you know this will be a night / DVD you will never forget. Madonna zooms through Impressive Instant, Candy Purfume Girl, Beautiful Stranger, Ray of Light effortlessly. The scenery, costumes and simply MADONNA are amazing. Then the geisha, strange, haunting songs such as Paradise (not for me), Frozen, Nobody's Perfect, and Mer Girl, are all fantastic. Madonna flys and shoots her husband, both shocking, but unmissable. Then Don't Tell Me, I deserve It, The Funny Song, Human Nature, Secret, during the now fashionable Country and Western section. Madonna rides a bull, and "techno line-dances" as one newspaper put it. Then the Latin section, La Isla Bonita, a Spaniosh What It Feels Like For A Girl, and more. Then the GHETTO FABULOUS stunning end. Her best songs, Holiday, which really got the cropwd going, as if they weren't hyper enough already, and Music as a breathtaking encore. This is amazing, and you MUST experiance Madonna at her Best! Buy this no, you won;t be dissappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Drowned DVD Experience 13 Nov 2001
By C. Pina
I saw Madonna's Drowned World Tour in Boston last August and just purchased the DVD last night. Although the video does a fairly good job of bringing home the show, it does not capture the live experience as effectively. The charged atmosphere and brilliant colors of the light show are muted here. However, I can now appreciate other details (costumes, facial expressions, etc.) that were missed before thanks to the many close-ups and camera angles. As for Madonna herself I find she's not quite as enthusiastic or as interactive as she was when I saw her in The Blond Ambition Tour, but the entertainment she gives us is still first-rate. From the physically demanding stunts to the guitar playing to the Latin-sung "What It Feels Like For a Girl", Madonna still has what it takes to put on one of the best shows this side of the 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beautiful Stranger Keeps Getting Better 8 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Madonna established herself as the only Queen of Pop when she embarked on this tour. It's not hard to see why with this DVD. The sound is superb, and the editing is much better than the original TV screening.
From the beginning you know you're in for something amazing. The opening music sends shivers up your spine as the crowds go absolutely ballistic. Madonna performs 'Drowned World' with a husky, new-found vocal ability. Her voice sounds fantastic, although she does get breathless during the more upbeat numbers.
She looks fantastic with a guitar, too, as she performs 'Candy Perfume Gil' a la Courtney Love. Frozen is another vocal gem, as is Mer Girl, Gone, Lo Que Siente La Mujer and La Isla Bonita.
The stage show is superb. She once vowed never to compromise her artistic integrity. Well this is as artistic as it comes, with symbols of female empowerment throughout, from her flying through the air and whooping ninja ass to her smiling through her bruises during 'Mer Girl' to show she always comes out on top no matter how hard critics beat her into the ground.
Some of the show is serious and dark, whereas her sense of humour is shown during 'Don't Tell Me' and 'Beautiful Stranger'. Country, cyberpunk, and a reflective acoustic strum on a guitar to 'I Deserve It' show her depth and range as an artist.
She sounds and looks better than ever. May she rule the world forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Drowned World, Shinning Madonna! 18 Mar 2004
The Drowned World Tour of 2001 was awaited by all as we heald of breath to see what the new millenium and motherhood had done to Her Majesty The Queen of POp, Madonna.
What resulted was the Drowned World Tour, a stunning array of song, colour, light, and performance beginning in the repressed punk era of the world of sorrow and Travelling down the road to Japanniese culture, country roadshows,and ending with a Holiday.
Tes Madonna didnt disappiont. Her arrival onstage was nothing short of electrifying and must go down as a true piece of musical stagecraft. The whole show right from the costumes to teh singing was fantastical as Madonna embraces her fanbase once more. Yes, her connection with the fans evokes a mind blowing response for the viewer and those critics who said she was finished get there minds blown away. Madonna's obsession with music, expression and culture are evident through her preformance and she performes an array of hits both old and new.
It would appear that whilst there is a Drowned World, Madonna is still shinning bright.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's still rocks 5 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This is why Madonna is still and always will be the Queen of Pop. She's the world's last real star and in this concert you see why.
The singing is great, the staging fantastic, dancing unparalleled and the whole mix is just mind blowing.
OK, a video is never going to be as good as being there but you can see what all the fuss was about.
It's a must for anyone who wants to see what a real pop concert can really be, as close to art as pop can get

5.0 out of 5 stars The Evolution of Theater 19 Nov 2002
By MaryAnn
Format:VHS Tape
We could say that Madonna's Drowned world tour is the perfect show. It is totally organised, much more sophisticated and evolved than most of the highly acclaimed conventional performances. It is also state of the art equipped and entertaining. It is a perfect product imbued with Madonna's unique perfectionism. BUT there is something missing. If u examine Madonna a little bit more carefully you will notice that she seems very determined,very competent,very intelligent but not really radiant. She emanates coldness and austerity to a degree that although Drowned World is surely an artistic monument of human endeavour, it could leave you with a sense of melancholy. Madonna has irreversibly changed into a very saturnian creature and this determines her whole attitude and performance in this work of art. Drowned world is very stern and serious. Like Madonna's eyes.
