Madonna has always had a flair for putting on a dramatic live performance and it sounds like the
singer won't be holding back when she plays Auckland's Vector Arena on Saturday and Sunday.
Here are just some of the astounding figures that help give an idea of what's in store for Madonna's eager Kiwi fans ...
One huge crucifix stage
Madonna has always been a big fan of the crucifix - it's even got her in trouble with Catholic leaders in the past - but this pop icon doesn't care. The stage will run directly through the crowd, with a heart-shaped 'Rebel Heart' logo at the end.
One pioneering female DJ to open the show
DJ Mary Mac will open for Madonna for both nights of her New Zealand show, it was confirmed today. No doubt she will get the party started early on the night.
Four poles arise from the stage during the show
You can only guess what those will be used for.
Six custom-designed sets of eyelashes are used each night
So that even the people seated up the back can see Madonna's peepers.
13 drums make up the drum-kit
For all those drum beats you didn't know existed.
20 amazing backup dancers
To help you Get Into The Groove.
23 songs on the set list
And you can bet it will cover a lot of the classics that fans will go crazy for.
121 days of rehearsal before the tour started
Which means this show is going to be on point.
200 plus pair of fishnets will be worn by Madonna by the time the Rebel Tour wrap
There's no such thing as too many fishnets when it comes to Madonna.
1000+ wardrobe pieces for all the performers onstage
Can anyone say "costume change?"
2,500,000 Swarovski crystals adorn Madonna's costumes
You might need to bring your sunglasses, Madonna is going to be so sparkly you won't be able to look directly at her. To get this look 10,000 hours of workmanship have gone into creating costumes from Alessandro Michele for Gucci, Alexander Wang, Fausto Puglisi, Jeremy Scott for Moschino, Nicolas Jebran, Miu Miu, Prada and Swarovski for the Rebel Heart Tour.
