The Girlie Show – Live Down Under
is a live music video title by singer Madonna
. It was released by Warner Music Vision on April 25, 1994 and included one of the Girlie Show
dates filmed at Sydney Cricket Ground
on November 19, 1993.
It was originally aired as a television special on American network HBO
and was its most watched original program of the year. Initially, the November 20, 1993 show was to be filmed and aired. However, a massive storm forced the cancellation of the show, so the November 19 show (which had been taped the night before as a "safety show") was aired instead. Another television special aired in Japan only, entitled Live in Japan 1993 – The Girlie Show

. The DVD was certified gold in Brazil by the Associação Brasileira dos Produtores de Discos
(ABPD) for shipment of 25,000 copies.
