Per the ViacomCBS-owned platform, “Filmed in Lisbon, Portugal, the film captures the pop icon’s rare and rapturous tour performance, hailed by sold out theatrical audiences worldwide.

The doc is directed by Ricardo Gomes and SKNX. The “Madame X Tour” was created and directed by a team led by Madonna, including Jamie King as creative producer and Megan Lawson as co-director and lead choreographer.
