Madonna Staged A Triumphant Comeback At The Scene Of Her Horror Fall At The Brit Awards By Returning To Perform At London’s O2 Arena On Tuesday (01dec15).
The pop superstar played the first of two concerts at the venue in the British capital and received rave reviews for her opening night, which marked her first performance at the location since her stage fall at the BRIT Awards in February(15).
She was left crying in her dressing room at the O2 after a dancer stepped on her cape and pulled her backwards down a set of stairs during a performance of her song Living For Love at the British Music awards bash.
However, the Like A Prayer singer refused to let the bad memories ruin her Rebel Heart show, and she even opened the second half of her set with Living For Love while dressed in a cape similar to the one which caused her terrifying tumble.
“Alright London… It’s good to be back where I belong,” she told the crowd. “I have a special fondness for this place.”
She later took to Twitter.com to thank fans for supporting her during the show, tweeting, “Tonight was Magic! Thank you London #rebelhearttour.”
After the BRIT Awards mishap, Madonna told U.S. talk show host Ellen Degeneres that although she was not injured in the fall, she felt embarrassed by what happened.
“I went to my room and cried from humiliation – not because I was in pain. Nothing hurt on me. That’s just the weirdest thing, I’m hard on myself,” she said.
“I don’t want to see any part of the performance… (After the fall) the first thing that crossed my mind wasn’t, ‘Oh my God, am I hurt?’ It was just like, ‘S**t. I made a mistake. I wanna start this again’. And I couldn’t, so I was like, ‘Ok, I’ll just keep going’…
“It’s nobody’s fault. Actually if anyone’s going to take the blame it’s me, since I insisted to tie the bow (of the cape) tighter around my neck.”
