Madonna's 'Gang Bang' Concert Footage: Singer Releases Video From Upcoming Tour DVD

If anyone is interested in watching a psuedo-music video for a Madonna song in which Madonna herself is not featured once, you're in luck.

The singer has released an excerpt from her upcoming "MDNA" concert tour DVD, repurposing the background imagery that played during her performances of the violent song "Gang Bang." The pulsating, expletive-laden song about a woman murdering her lover has lent itself to a sleek, stylized video plastered with images of guns and blood dripping across the screen in slow motion.

The "Gang Bang" release is pegged as promotional material from the "MDNA" DVD, which has yet to receive a release date. It's not the first "MDNA" footage Madonna has used for other purposes, as she played the background video for "Nobody Knows Me" before taking the stage at the March 17 GLAAD Media Awards.

Madonna originally wrote "Gang Bang" with Quentin Tarantino in mind to direct the music video, basing the track on his movies. The "Pulp Fiction" director reportedly turned down the singer's request because he was promoting "Django Unchained" at the time. Though it was never officially released as a single, "Gang Bang" peaked at No. 30 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Songs chart.

Madonna's "MDNA" tour became the highest-grossing concert of 2012, earning $228.4 million in revenue.

This post has been updated, as the "Gang Bang" music video referenced previously was not the song's official video.
