Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Maverick Records CEO Oseary presents this collection of photographs he took of client Madonna on her 2006 Confessions tour. He admits in the introduction that he was an amateur who was using an unfamiliar camera. At times it shows, but the mostly large-format, single-page shots and collages feature Madonna gyrating or playing her shiny black guitar—complete with stage pyrotechnics and the backstage action, as well as audience reaction throughout. In the end, Oseary nicely captures the feel of the tour. Fun highlights include a section on Madonna's disco set and white, Saturday Night Fever–inspired costume, entitled Music Inferno. Proceeds from the book go to Michael Berg and Madonna's charity, Raising Malawi, which brings relief to the large orphan population in Malawi. (Oct.)

Book Description

Photography and introduction by Guy Oseary

Every time I do a show, I die a little bit, but no shit is worth doing unless you¹re willing to die for it. --Madonna

Madonna Confessions is the first official, inside book on the most famous woman in the world since the 1992 release of the landmark monograph Sex.

With over 250 never-before-seen images taken by Guy Oseary and personally approved by Madonna, the photographs featured here showcase the provocative themes of her live performances -- from equestrian to urban Bedouin, and from glam punk to disco fever -- and celebrates what The New York Times called "the sheer spectacularity of her physical form." Enhanced with Madonna's short, sassy interspersed quotes, Confessions is a matchless, must-have record of one of the highlights of her career.

This book is just perfect. It basically what I was expecting, tons of photos from one of the best shows I have attended ever! It really takes you back to that night when you saw the concert live. Each photo has the date and city where the photo was taken. It's a great book for anybody that went to the concert or is a Madonna fan.

This is a spectacular close up view of the world's top concert performer Madonna. I went to the concert. I own the concert dvd. This shows me more from the monumental event. It is perfectly laid out to chronicle the concert from start to finish in perfect sequence as the songs were performed, from every show around the world. The book is incredible! Thank You Guy Oseary. But most of all, Thank You Madonna for having the innovation and brilliance that was the CONFESSIONS tour!

Personally, I think this was the best Madonna's tour so far. And this book it's the perfect closure for that era. It's full with high definition pictures, phrases, dates, and photos you have never seen before. Although some of them are not quite what I'd expect, the book succeeds in putting on images what this concert was about. Definitely a must for Madonna's fans.

Format: Hardcover
When I went to Madonna's 2006 Tour "The Confessions Tour" I had no idea what to expect. I had heard mixed reviews of the tour but I knew that Madonna would not disappoint her fans (she never does).
From the beginning to the end the show was spectacular. The show was mostly comprised of songs from Madonna's 2005 album "Confessions on a Dancefloor," but, you still heard some old favorites like: "Like a Virgin," "Live to Tell," "Ray of Light," "Drowned World/Substitute For Love," "Music," "Erotica," "La Isla Bonita," and "Lucky Star." As Madonna has done for each of her tours each section presented a different element; the 1st one contained Madonna in a jockey outfit even going so far as to ride on one of the dancers & doing stripper moves on a moving merry-go-round. The 2nd section brought some spirituality to the show w/ the controversial performance of "Live to Tell," in which Madonna was on a 3-D Cross (awesome). The 3rd section saw Madonna rocking out on her guitar w/ "I Love NY," & "Ray of Light," & going on a rampage on "Let it Will Be." In the final section Madonna brings us back 2 the 70's w/ remixed disco versions of her songs "Music," (which sounded a lot like "Disco Inferno")"Erotica,"(this version was better than the original version), "La Isla Bonita," "Lucky Star," and finally her hit song "Hung-Up," which ended w/ Madonna asking the audience "Have You Confessed?"

Now I know Most of U R reading this and asking "when is he going to talk about the book?" well the book was photographed by Guy Oseary (a long time BFF 2 Madonna) and the book is comprised of photos that he took of Madonna on her "Confessions Tour," each song has a different photo and as somebody who appreciates photography I must say he did a phenominal job. Madonna has never looked so great on Tour.

Format: Hardcover
This is a very good book, most of the photos seem to have been taken by a professional photographer, I have no complaints. However I do think that the photo we see in the cover should`ve been printed in hard cover. Don`t get me wrong, the book has a hard cover, but it`s got a paper cover over the hard cover, which is the photo we see. I have the feeling it`ll be easily damaged with time.

I`ve published some photos taken by me, if you wanna see them, just look at the customer images above.
