The «Who's That Girl World Tour» is the second concert tour by Madonna.

The tour supported her third studio album, «True Blue» (1986), as well as the soundtrack «Who’s That Girl» (1987).

It was Madonna's first world tour, reaching Asia, North America and Europe.

Musically and technically superior to her previous «The Virgin Tour», «The Who's That Girl Tour» incorporated multimedia components to make the show more appealing.

Madonna trained herself physically with aerobics, jogging and weight-lifting, to cope with the choreography and the dance routines.

For the costumes, she collaborated with designer Marlene Stewart, expanding on the idea of bringing her popular video characters to life onstage, reworking scenes from videos such as «True Blue», «Open Your Heart», «Papa Don’t Preach» and «La Isla Bonita».

The stage was huge, with four video screens, multimedia projectors and a flight of stairs in the middle. Patrick Leonard, who was the music director, encouraged Madonna to go with the idea of rearranging her older songs and presenting them in a new format. The title «Who's That Girl» came to Madonna's mind when during rehearsals one-day when she looked at a gigantic image of herself, projected on a screen on the stage.

The show consisted of seven costume changes, with song-and-dance routines, theatrics, addressing social causes—during «Papa Don't Preach»—as well as an encore, consisting of the «Who's That Girl» film title song and «Holiday».

The tour was critically appreciated, who commented on the extravagant nature of the concert and complimented Madonna for her dancing, costume changes and dynamic pacing.
