Madame X has been described by both critics and fans as one of Madonna’s best-ever creative albums and tours. In this first instalment of a 2-part book series we explore the cultural diversity of music styles, the artists and the places of the city of Lisbon that greatly inspired Madonna to create Madame X. It begins from when Madonna made Lisbon her home in 2017, and the book becomes a tourist itinerary of Lisbon’s locations and the melting-pot of music styles from which Madame X was born.
The Madame X Theatre Tour that followed in 2019 to early 2020 was truly compelling and unique. In the second book, Madame X Revisited Volume II, we share a unique eye-witness Madame X Tour report, explore the historical and cultural background to Madame X, and present an update on the touring artists.
