Update #25: Music producer confirms track of the setlist
Houston producer/engineer Mike Dean is currently working with Madonna on the Rebel Heart Tour and confirmed “Holiday” will be part of the setlist!
Here’s the excerpt from his latest interview for The Fader…
The Fader: What are you working on these days?
Mike Dean: I’m working on Madonna’s tour right now, helping her put her show together. It’s cool: taking old songs and making the old stuff match the new stuff. I try to use all the same sounds I use on music now. Drums. Replace bass lines with 808s. Trap snares, hi-hats—all that shit. It’s kind of cool. We’re working on “Holiday” right now.
The Fader: What’s the most important part of translating songs for performance?
Mike Dean: With Kanye, we don’t do that much. We just add stuff on top of the tracks—add new stuff. It’s different every day, depending on how you feel; there’s nothing written in stone with how we play. Madonna’s more locked in with all her performances, but she has surprises every night—a big giant production.
Thanks Martin Santiago
Update #24: Setlist still in progress and theme revealed
In an exclusive interview given on June 17 to The Oakland Press, Madonna revealed some new details about the Rebel Heart Tour…
I’m still working my way through the set list.
The name of the tour, Rebel Heart, starts the party and then I think, ‘What’s a strong beginning? What’s the statement I want to make?’ and then we go on a journey from there.
The theme of the show will be “romance.”
Love. Living for love. Being a rebel heart. Living for love. They’re all kind of intertwined, you know — rising above, believing in your dreams, overcoming heartbreak, things like that.
You know, the simple things in life.
