Today in Madonna History: September 10, 2015

On September 10 2015, Madonna joined Régine Chassagne and Win Butler (Arcade Fire), Diplo and DJ Windows 98, on stage at the PHI Centre in Montreal, after her Rebel Heart Tour concert. The PHI Centre presented a special night, Naïve Melodie, for the benefit of the Kanpe Foundation.

Madonna played the cow bell during a performance of David Bowie’s Rebel Rebel.

Kanpe is a foundation that “stands with the most vulnerable Haitian families towards their financial autonomy.”

Prior to the show, Madonna’s fan club issued this helpful statement:

Madonna’s MDNA Tour is to stop at Montreal’s Bell Centre tonight. While tickets state that the show starts at 8pm, please note that Madonna won’t be on stage before 10pm, her support act’s performance is on first. Thank you and have a great show!

On June 22 2006, Madonna played the second of a two-night run at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. The shows were the only Canadian dates during The Confessions Tour, with Live Nation’s Arthur Fogel citing scheduling conflicts with Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, which they had been attempting to route into the itinerary as well.

The concerts also marked Madonna’s welcomed return to Montreal after a thirteen year absence. She previously played at Olympic Stadium during The Girlie Show Tour in 1993, which followed up her first concerts in La Belle Province during 1987’s Who’s That Girl Tour with two dates at The Forum.
