NBC TO BROADCAST "MADONNA: THE CONFESSIONS TOUR LIVE" IN NOVEMBER

Performance Marks First Ever Broadcast Network Appearance For Musical Icon

PASADENA, Calif. -- July 21, 2006 -- NBC announced today the network will broadcast "Madonna: The Confessions Tour Live" - a two-hour special set to air in November 2006. The special will be taped this summer at Wembley Stadium in London, UK during her worldwide sold-out 25-city "Confessions Tour" and marks the first-ever broadcast network performance by the international pop superstar.

"Madonna is one of the greatest artists of our time and never fails to generate excitement," said Kevin Reilly, NBC Entertainment President. "We think this is going to be a big event for television."

The concert special will feature songs from the artist's recent multi-platinum Warner Bros. Records release "Confessions On A Dance Floor," which debuted at No. 1 in 29 countries and has sold over eight million copies around the globe. The broadcast will also include some of Madonna's greatest hits from her legendary career.

In the course of an unparalleled career, the incandescent star has racked up a staggering 35 No. 1 hits on Billboard's Dance charts. The multi-Grammy winning artist, songwriter, producer, best selling children's book author, video visionary and cultural icon has sustained an unrivaled reputation for astonishing stage spectacles and has made musical history many times over including international record sales of over 200 million albums.

The special is produced by Blackdog Films. Madonna, Angela Becker and Guy Oseary, are executive producers; Jonas Auckerlund directs and Sara Martin produces.
