Madonna has done everything possible to make sure her Rebel Heart Tour is a crowd-pleaser, unlike her admirable but challenging MDNA Tour—fan-friendly set list, reasonable start time, mucho interaction, nostalgia and even changing up the songs.

In her hometown of Detroit, instead of giving them “Ghosttown” as the special add-on, she gave them her classic “Frozen”! Love this song. What a special present. Imagine if she only sings it for Detroit.

Amazon Race: ENCYCLOPEDIA MADONNICA Is Here! Comments (0)

Finally, it's here.

It took a year from the time of my successful Kickstarter campaign, but my Encyclopedia Madonnica 20—an update of my original Madonna bio from 1995—is now finished and ready to be digested, argued about, praised, and trashed ... just like Madonna herself.

If you were one of the people who gave $45 or more to my Kickstarter campaign in fall 2014,or if you bought a book from me via Paypal in July 2015, your Limited Edition, which has an exclusive cover by Pegasus Street Artist that looks like this:


... is either on its way to you or soon will be. IF YOU ORDERED A BOOK AND DON'T HAVE IT 30 DAYS FROM TODAY, FEEL FREE TO E-MAIL ME AT THAT TIME: matthewrettenmund@gmail.com.

Full disclosure: Because I collected money in advance, I am stuck now having to sit and individually order each of those copies from my printer, one by one. All 500. Yeah. So please be patient, and please know I am impatiently trying to get your book to you. Those people will also receive, separately in the mail, a signed/numbered bookplate. The bookplates look like this:


The first 100 copies get the '70s illustration, the next 100 get the '80s and so on. No one can request the era they want; it's all pre-assigned. Alejandro Mogollo outdid himself on these collectible bookplates, as well as on the 20+ images he contributed to my book.

Here is a sample of a new illustration (not in my book) that Alejandro just did to give you another taste of his brilliance:

The people who paid early got the benefit of a discounted price for a limited version of the book, but the regular edition ($65) is also very cool—the limited edition is 600 pages, while the regular is still 584, and the regular edition has a never-ever-before-seen image of Madonna and her gang circa 1983 on the back cover.

For anyone still interested in a limited edition, I am going to see how many I have left after I ship all my sold copies. It won't be many, so I can't play favorites and alert people individually. My plan is to eBay those last remaining copies so everyone has a chance; and I would eBay however many are left simultaneously so the prices remain sane.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who has contributed. Please share this link (and use hashtags #EncyclopediaMadonnica and #EM20) to help me move some books:


I'm seeing my final Rebel Heart Tour show in Philly tomorrow, so this is a big week for closure!

Stay tuned for news of an NYC book party!!!
