Blond Ambition World Tour Live is a video album by American singer Madonna. It was released only on LaserDisc by Pioneer Artists as part of the sponsorship deal of the 1990 Blond Ambition World Tour. It contains the final tour date recorded in Nice, France. The release had previously been shown and produced by American network HBO as a television special. In 1992, the LaserDisc release won the Best Music Video-Long Form category at the 34th Grammy Awards. This was the first Grammy award Madonna received in her career.

Background

The video album was released only on LaserDisc by Pioneer Artists as part of the sponsorship deal of the 1990 "Blond Ambition World Tour" and was released to promote the LaserDisc format. It contains the final tour date filmed at Stade de l'Ouest in Nice, France on August 5, 1990 which had previously been shown and produced by American network HBO as part of a television special Madonna – Live! Blond Ambition World Tour 90.[1] Another TV special with the same name was broadcast on December 24, 1990 in Europe containing a live date from the tour, filmed in Barcelona, Spain on August 1, 1990, produced by Italian channel Rai Uno who had previously produced the 1987 concert special Madonna in Concerto, which was released commercially as Ciao Italia: Live from Italy in 1988.

In 1992, the LaserDisc release won the Best Music Video, Long Form category at the 34th Grammy Awards. This was the first Grammy award Madonna received in her career. The award was granted to Madonna, David Mallet and Mark "Aldo" Miceli (video directors) and Anthony Eaton (video producer).[2]

Other releases

Another version of the Blond Ambition World Tour was released commercially, Blond Ambition Japan Tour 90, on VHS and LaserDisc on July 25, 1990. It was released in Japan only by Sire Records and Warner-Pioneer and contains a date filmed at Yokohama Stadium in Yokohama, Japan on April 26, 1990. Another release, Blond Ambition Tour 1990, was released on DVD in Germany only in 2005 by Falcon Neue Medien which had obtained a licence to release it only in that country. Neither Madonna nor Warner Bros. Records authorized the release, which features poor-quality footage from a show filmed in Houston, Texas in May 1990. The same footage was released in the UK in October 2007 by Quantum Leap Video.

Formats

Pioneer still holds the rights to this LaserDisc. Pioneer have confirmed that there will not be a DVD release in the future.[3]
