  • But usually all the Broadway shows have alternate casts for their matinees performances. It's not the main cast performing 8 times (or more) per week.
    And they definitely don't have just one performer to sing for two hours, there are lots of different singers in each show, and on Madame X Tour is just Madonna doing the singing.

              No, you have understudies and swings if somebody is off sick or on holiday, performers (unless a big star doing a vocally demanding role) they do 8 shows. And no, some might not be on all the time but the leads and ensemble normally are. And trust me, I love M, but theatre casts do WAY more.

                  How many of those are 61 btw?

                      • I’ve been Madonna’s fan since I was a kid. Solid 20 years. And I’ve supported all eras, been so excited. This is the first era where I didn’t quite get overhyped. And let’s be real, “Madame X” is far superior than “MDNA”, yet in 2012 it all looked more glamorous, bigger and most importantly - more promissing.

                        My major dilemma is - are the small shows really going to become her thing? She will need a strong album next time to pull the crowd for these prices. And it’s not like things are going smooth this time as well.

                        Idk, as we are approaching that album #15 and she wrapping up her tour at the age of almost 62, I’d rather see her do a really good album and do a Greatest hits stadium tour while she still can. If she can that is. Other than that my second wish would be playing way more ballads from her catalogue during the small venue shows.

                        My guts is telling me she’s not going to do any of those two, and for the first time in my life, with her not having a contract, no charting single in sight, losing UK as a market, questionable health condition, what can we objectively expect?

                        We all know her ego will not allow her to have albums that are missing top 10, unsold concerts or lack of presence
                        in media. Maybe a new management should really enter the scene and start preparing her for her final act that is inevitably going to happen within next 8-9 years.

                        • I don't think she'll do a farewell stadium tour, shows like Madame X will be all we get. She's 61 and struggling with this tour, by the time her next tour comes, she'll be at least 64-65, i don't think she can cope with a stadium tour at that age.

                            How is she struggling with it?

                              So many cancelled dates. I'm sure more to come in London and Paris.

                                Right but I asked how that equates to her struggling? Im not seeing how shes struggling besides a knee injury. That happened during rehearsals and can happen to anyone at any age. Unless now shes messed her knees up for good she could be fine for the next tour.

                                  This is really unfair. Unfortunately, her knee is giving her a lot of trouble, yes, but could happen to anyone. My guess is that she hasn’t been as active as she used to be since she’s been a “soccer mum”. Also, this tour has suffered from really BAD management. However, the majority (press and attendees!) have agreed the show is spectacular.

                                  Cher is well over 70 and touring. Why can’t M?

                                      Well due to health issues and bad logistics (3 back to back shows) she's struggling. I don't know if her knee was this bad prior to this tour, if it was, she should've taken care of it.

                                        Nobody says she can't tour, she can do theatres but not stadiums, not with the current state of her health. Clearly she is in a lot of pain, maybe she'll think "it's not worth it" and will stop touring once her contract ends. Also for a stadium show, she needs a heavily choreographed show, people expect a spectacle from Madonna, nothing less.

                                              She doesn't need to do heavy choreography though, that's what dancers are for. Also many acts do stadium shows and barely have any choreo (khm Ed Sheetran)... Just because you have an idea of what a Madonna stadium show should look like, doesn't mean it's what she wants it to look like at a certain part of her life/career. We're talking about a woman who basically set the standard for what pop tours are today. And there's a reason why the word "reinvention" is connected to her throughout her career. It's never too late for one more of those. Who knows, maybe she brings something completely unexpected if (or when) she decided to do another stadium tour.

                                              • Whilst Madonna has done the textbook energetic stadium tours with Who's That Girl and Sticky & Sweet, it's essential to consider that The Girlie Show was a highly theatrical show that adapted to stadiums well; the same can be said for MDNA, although visually that translated much more strongly in arenas whereas The Girlie Show was made for stadiums. She's proven that she can reinvent the standard stadium show by taking elements more compatible with another venue and incorporating them into that vein of show well before; she can easily do it again.
