Sticky & Sweet to premiere in the USA

Posted by Sylar On Wednesday, October 07, 2009

Madonna fans in the United States will finally have their chance to see the "Sticky & Sweet Tour" on television. With a press release issued a few hours ago, EPIX have announced that they will debut the Live in Buenos Aires concert special across all their platforms - television, video-on-demand and the internet.

EPIX is a joint venture between Viacom, Paramount Pictures, MGM. and Lionsgate. Conceived as a next-generation multiplatform premium entertainment channel, video-on-demand and online service launching with Verizon FiOS and other distribution partners in October 2009, accessing more than 15,000 motion pictures spanning the vast libraries of the partner studios.
"An unstoppable force and the ultimate entertainer, Madonna gives an amazing performance," EPIX president Mark Greenberg said about their Madonna deal. "She's in a category of her own."

EPIX also expressly mentions that they will world premiere the Sticky & Sweet show on television, although they confirm that the broadcast was filmed in Buenos Aires’ River Plate Stadium, which is likely to be the one we saw already in a number of countries around the world.
So far, the concert premiere on SKY in the UK in an almost complete edit featuring the entire set list. A similar version aired on HBO Eastern Europe and a reduced one-hour version with highlights from the show did broadcast in some European countries. A longer version - with no additional song but a longer intro and the full "request song" moment was shown in South America by CityVibe.
A DVD from the tour is also expected from Warner Music later this year.

    Well who cares anymore. They totally sucked for making Americans wait so long. It's a shame that what an american artist produces another country gets it first. You can watch the whole thing in hd on youtube. So there is no need for it. So I am looking down on those people way way way down. For Giving the concert to air in europe first and for making the fans wait a year for the dvd without the extra 2009 stuff. That tour was already out and edited a long time ago. I am really mad about all that stuff. Americans And Madonnas Fans Got Snubbed Bad.
