Event description
G'day Australia! Get Ready! In the aftermath of the Erotica Sex scandals of 1992, Madonna launched her concert tour in Australia in 1993.

About this Event

The Girlie Show World Tour was Madonna's fourth concert tour. It supported her album Erotica, and was seen as an attempt to revive her musical career after the album and her film Body of Evidence impressed neither critics nor audiences. Initially, Madonna intended to film the tour in Argentina or Mexico, but she ultimately chose Australia instead, as she liked the event being billed as "Madonna Down Under". The show on November 19, 1993 at Sydney Cricket Ground was aired on HBO on November 21, 1993

It was subject of controversy in several countries it visited due to its sexual imagery; in Israel, Orthodox Jews staged protests to force the cancellation of the concert. However, rallies were unsuccessful as the show went on as scheduled. During the concert in Puerto Rico, she caused further controversy by rubbing the country's official flag between her legs, resulting in about 30 Puerto Ricans protesting against the singer outside her house in Miami, asking for a boycott of Madonna's music until she apologized.
