MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Madonna, the Queen of Pop, has finally graced the Philippines with her presence.
While she arrived in the country without much fanfare, on the first day of her two-day concert, Wednesday, February 24, the pop legend put on a spectacular show for the Manila stop of her Rebel Heart tour.
With lightning-quick costume changes and a majestic set design befitting the music royalty, the first day of her Manila concert was quite the extravaganza. (IN PHOTOS: Stars at Madonna's 'Rebel Heart' Manila concert Day 1)
It was a long wait for the Queen to get on stage, but she delivered like the royalty that she is.
Like her usual Rebel Heart Tour sets, Her Madgesty sang new tracks like "Iconic," "B*tch, I’m Madonna," "Body Shop," and "Living for Love," but also oldies but goodies such as "Burning Up" "Vogue," "Deeper and Deeper," "Like a Virgin," "La Isla Bonita," "Take a Bow," "Material Girl," and "Holiday."
A true pop music legend, she told the Manila crowd at one point: "It feels amazing after 32 years being able to do what I love."
Globe, one of the corporate partners of the concert, streamed parts of the show via Facebook Live:
