After months of mad-cap Instagram teasers and slow-motion videos of pole-dancing nuns
, Madonna finally birthed her Rebel Heart Tour in Montreal, Canada, last night (September 10), and our excitement or the musical legend's UK shows this December is reaching dangerously hazardous levels. Be warned, there are spoilers ahead.
The 22-song set sees most of what we would term the 'banger half' of Rebel Heart
get an onstage outing, and of course is packed with hits from across the musical legend's four-decade career, including acoustic re-workings of classics like True Blue
and Who's That Girl.
The staging looks equally as incredible: As well as the continued matador theme and a vast array of costumes by designers from Gucci to Prada, the show includes a segment where Madge rides a half-naked nun like a surfboard. Obviously.
Naturally, everyone's favourite Instagrammer has been sharing the highlights overnight, so get a sneak peek of what to expect come December - as well as the full setlist - below...
