January 13, 2010 12:00 AM ET

On March 30th, Madonna's record-breaking Sticky and Sweet Tour will arrive on DVD, Blu-ray and CD. Filmed during a four-night sold-out stand in Buenos Aires that featured Madonna performing in front of 256,000 fans, the concerts' set list ranges from her early hits to her latest studio album Hard Candy, with each show divided up into segments to reflect Madonna's ever-changing personas and eras. The tracks on Sticky & Sweet include "4 Minutes," "Hung Up," "Like a Prayer" and, since this was filmed in Buenos Aires, "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina." Warner Bros. will distribute the release.

Song Stories

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
