American Life Promo Tour

Madonna released her 9th studio album, American Life, in April 2003 and did a nine-date promotional tour to support the album’s release. The first show was filmed at MTV’s TRL Studio and aired on the network as “Madonna On Stage & On the Record.” The final performance was a stop on the classic BBC show “Top of the Pops.”

The set list varied from show to show, but songs performed on the tour include:

American Life
Don’t Tell Me
Hollywood
Like a Prayer
Like a Virgin
Mother and Father
Music
Nothing Fails
X-Static Process

Madonna, after previously showing off her new guitar skills on 2001’s Drowned World Tour, again picked up a guitar on the American Life Promo Tour– strumming what appears to be a Gibson Super Jumbo for two songs: “X-Static Process” and “Nothing Fails.”
