Madonna returned to the London O2 stage over the weekend as she started her Celebration Tour in the city. As the singer once again takes to the stage in the capital, Londoners have praised the singer for continuing to perform live shows.
London’s O2 Arena welcomed back Madonna on Saturday (October 14) as she kicked off her throwback string of shows. The venue has hosted the singer a few times over the years and most recently performed there in 2015 as part of her Rebel Heart Tour.
Eight years on, the 65-year-old star is back at the O2 to perform hits from across her four-decade career at the top of the charts. She is set to perform a total of six shows at the London venue.
Londoners have commended the singer for her recent shows as they applauded her dedication to taking to the stage.
London local Michael praised the Material Girl for continuing to perform live shows: “Where Madonna is in her career, she’s probably done everything already. She should be happily retiring and taking it easy, but she keeps going.”
He added: “It’s uplifting and energising, and I think it’s cool she’s got the energy to do it, you know she is a great artist, so why not.”
Another Londoner, Caron, said the singer’s age shouldn’t hold her back.
She said: “At the age of 64, you should be able to do anything you want. So, good on her for continuing with what she loves doing.”
Johnny, who also calls the capital home, said musician’s love of performing is forever.
He said: “For someone who has been doing it for as long as that passion and that desire to perform, don’t think it ever goes away no matter how old you are.”
Madonna returns to the O2 Arena on December 5 and 6.
