Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour Triumph: Watch “Into the Groove”
Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet tour wrapped its record-breaking run last month in Israel, but fans can still catch Material Girl’s incredible Hard Candy stage show on October 30th when EpixHD.com airs footage from her sold-out four-night stand in Buenos Aires from December 2008. As a first look at the footage, Billboard premiered the above video of Madonna and company performing a funky, reworked “Into the Groove” — a song that Madonna herself told RS she feels “retarded singing.”

But the most awe-inspiring thing about the performance is Madonna herself, as the then-50-year-old jumpropes Double Dutch — while singing.
