Description:Blond Ambition World Tour Live is a video album by American singer-songwriter Madonna released exclusively on Laserdisc by Pioneer Artists on December 13, 1990. The concert had previously been broadcast on American network HBO as Live! Madonna: Blond Ambition World Tour 90, and became one of its highest rated specials. It’s intersting to note that former Today show anchor Matt Lauer hosted the HBO special prior to his Today show hosting period. The decision to release it exclusively on Laserdisc grew when Pioneer Artists signed up to sponsor the tour; the company also wanted to use Madonna to reach a new demographic and increase Laserdisc sales. It received positive reviews, with some critics saying it captured the concert better than the documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare and the HBO broadcast. At the 34th Annual Grammy Awards, it won for “Best Music Video-Long Form”, becoming the first Grammy award Madonna received in her career.
Blond Ambition World Tour’s final show, filmed Live at The Stade De L’Ouest, in the French Riviera, Nice France, August 5, 1990.
