Drowned World Tour
Madonna had a few friends in the house Saturday night.
Madonna shows more art than heart. Heart, that is, for her longtime fans who, salivating at the chance to see their Material Girl in concert for the first time in eight years, had to wait 45 extra minutes Saturday night in the sticky-warm sold-out Palace of Auburn Hills.
People, people we must accessorize! We need skimpy camisoles emblazoned with American flags. We need fluffy racoon tails, hitched like key chains to denim bell bottoms. We could use a black Japanese kimono with 50-foot detachable sleeves.
Eighty-five quid? Cuh! If Eavis had got her for Glasto 2000 like he wanted we could’ve seen Madge AND Bowie AND The Pet Shop Boys for that, so this had better be something pretty special…
Whether we’re fans or not, most of us have been aware of Madonna’s progress over the last 18 years. Holiday was a good tune right? Like A Virgin was a bit saucy eh? Don’t you think Like A Prayer’s video was a tad sacrilegious? In Bed With Madonna? What a bitch! And that Sex book! Well really!
Madonna slights both music and fans. David Cheal has misgivings about Madonna’s new world tour as he sees her at Palau Sant Jordi, Barcelona. He feels she should concentrate more on the music than the stage act.
Madonna whipped fans into a frenzy with a jokey four-letter blast last night as she kicked off her first world tour for eight years.
Pop icon Madonna began her first tour in eight years on Saturday night with a sell-out concert in the Spanish city of Barcelona attended by 20,000 fans.
All hail the Queen! Madonna launched her first world tour for more than eight years last night (June 9) at Barcelona’s Palau Sant Jordi – and NME.COM were there to witness one of the most fantastic pop spectacles ever seen.
