  • It was such an amazing night. I was there with my partner (his first time seeing Madonna live), and we loved every second of it. I do have to say, however, that the theatre experience kinda gets lost sometimes as most of the audience still behaves as if they were in an arena. Also, I’m still deciding whether the chatty moments were plain silly or not, as I didn’t dislike them completely. I do think they are too rehearsed and I would like more of an honest and spontaneous experience, but then I was wondering if this actually showcases how much of an introvert Madonna actually is- when she does go off script it really gets awkward! It’s like the typical nerd trying to not be socially awkward. Haha

    I still have one more show to go (Feb 15th), hope she won’t cancel that one.

        • Interesting report about last night show!!



          Madame X was not in the mood for shit last night! Animated, defiant, humorous and just ever so slightly pissed off about the night before, this was another show to remember.

          Instead of the beer chat, Madonna performed The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel, and more recently covered by Bananarama.

          During an abridged Polaroid selfie sale – to a person Madonna called “Attic” – she referenced last night and wondered if tonight she would be escorted off in handcuffs!

          She also had some words to complaining fans online (most of whom aren’t at the shows) who have been complaining about there being two versions of the show, and don’t want to accept that Madonna is suffering two injuries and things have had to change.
          Yes, there are two versions of my show. As if you didn’t know, I am suffering very badly from injuries, so your choices are a slightly shorter show or no show. What would make you ******* happy? Any bitches complaining can kiss my ass.



          The audience roared “show” obviously, to a deafening roar.

          MadonnaTribe reported this was the reasons for the show with three less songs last week (not 5,6 or even 8 as exaggerated online) however a handful of fans have started their own conspiracy theories, so it was great to have the official word.

          Another official word was regarding last night, where venue security reconfirmed what Tribe reported : the curfew is 11 PM, with a grace period of 15 minutes, to 11.15 PM, hence why Madonna has often finished her show between 11 and 11.15 in her Palladium run so far. For reasons unknown, the grace period was not fully permitted on Wednesday night. We can only speculate why, or perhaps we rise above it and can move on.

          Other highlights of a fast paced action packed show:

          American Life took the brunt of Madonna’s pent up energy – rather than complete the rap she screamed and the placed screamed with her.

          In her usual spiel before the Fado song with Gaspar, Madonna commented that as well as being a singer and artist, she was a storyteller, and it was hard to tell stories against a stopwatch! So she gave a bullet pointed version of the story very quickly.

          • Lol the Sound of Silence by S&G more recently covered by Banarama haha. Living under a rock if they dont know the Disturbed version. Def tell the age of the person that wrote that.

            Good write up though

            • Instead of having a "**** the theatre for censoring me" she could also start her show on time. She's so freaking arrogant.
              This attitude won't serve her well now that her image is already so damaged. She just can't help herself.

                First of all ,she still had 5 minutes. They cut her off before the final limit which was 11:15. So,no,she wasn't wrong when she protested against them.
                That would be the case if she was past 11:15 and wanted to go on with the show anyway.
                Second,kind of amazing how you ever write about her image being damaged and being damaged and how she can't do anything right.
                She delivered a hell of a show according to everyone who was there and cared enough to post on social media about it but protesting for being cut off before the right time won't "serve her well" Lol ?
                Really tiring and annoying to say the same thing over and over again.

                  I don't only talk about her and how she doesn't do anything right. She does a lot of stuff right obviously, I'm glad her show is received well I would have loved to see it.
                  I think some fans here are a bit blinded though, obviously a lot is going very wrong for her image wise and a lot of it comes down to the fact that she thinks she can get away with everything just because she's Madonna.

                      What is get away with everything though?
                      Like it's been explained ,they cut her off at 11:05,so before the right time (11:15).
                      She went on with the last song even without the sound and mic working.
                      This has nothing to do with being a blind fan.
                      Imo she's rude whenever she starts a show 2 hours late and deserves all the backlash she gets when that happens.
                      But you can't criticise her when she was not the wrong one .
                      In fact ,as a long time fan,I LOVED what she did.
                      Reminded us all of the good old Madonna.
                      Instead of confirming herself and leaving the stage ,she got pissed and performed her last song anyway .
                      Amazing.
                      **IF** she went past 11:15,that would be a whole other story and she would indeed be a fool for protesting against something she had no right to.
                      That's what I want to make clear.
                      No blind fan here ;)

                        • Here's a review posted by one of the Madonna tribe mods:


                          She started just after 9 with God Control.

                          No beer bitch - instead we had DCFMA (not the whole thing but enough - second verse to the end) with Andrew Lloyd Weber watching.

                          As Come Alive came to an end she turned to the backing singers and said GO. This was 10.55pm. During Future she was visibly hurried and said something about not being pulled off stage.

                          At the end of Like a Prayer she got the entire audience clapping and chanting I HAVE ONE MORE SONG, I HAVE ONE MORE SONG.

                          As the curtain pulled across she said “keep my mic on. I’m finishing the show. We’re going on”.

                          The lights went down for I Rise at 11.10pm and just as the intro started they closed the curtains on her.

                          BARE IN MIND THE FINAL CURFEW IS 11.15pm
                          .

                          She started chanting censorship - off stage - and 2500 people - with the lights on - chanted too - it was good humoured, in support of Madonna. It was crazy and exciting and positive.

                          Her sound team through the stage speakers restarted I Rise as the dancers all came on stage along with the band and crew and backing singers in their off stage outfits. With the house mic on and music just audible she performed the whole of I Rise IN FRONT OF THE IRON CURTAIN.

                          It was like a gigantic **** YOU to the petty London Palladium who shut her down 5 full minutes before curfew.

                          Venue security were all over the place, whining. Everyone left their seats and crowded the stage shouting and singing I Rise. Best most amazing atmosphere.

                          At the end, defiant to the last, she excited through the crowd flanked by her own awesome security full crew dancers and singers. Despite the crowd being out of their seats , they just parted for her safe exit. It was magic.

                          On the way out the London Palladium security were hanging their heads in shame. Ranging from “Westminster Council pulled the plug” (so a counsellor was on site to pull it 5 minutes early?) to “omg I’m so worried this will be in the papers tomorrow”. One security guard said to me “we’ve seriously ****ed up here. She wasn’t late”.

                          So let’s not start bleating that she was over curfew. She wasn’t. She has until 11.15pm according to venue security.

                          Absolutely brilliant end. I live for moments like this where I see the brave defiant **** disturber Madonna come to the surface. And in the face of petty over zealous London Palladium security tonight, she won.

                          The rest of the run will be very interesting.

                          Brilliant night
                          .

                          • The audience loved it. They had a ball and once in a lifetime show there. No image damaged. They loved it. You are the only one who got easily offended. So move on.
                            Madonna is the queen of pop and the biggest selling female music artist of all time!

                              Where was I offended? You're not making a lot of sense.

                                            • The issue with the curfew is simple, Madonna just start on time please, being late doesn't cut it. If I paid hundreds of pounds for a small gig I would expect it to start on time. Her last arena tours the starting late was an issue.
                                              Anyway good reviews from fans who have been at the London gigs.

                                                Praise came from fans but most of all from press as well..... let’s underline that !!

                                                and as for London carfew, she didn’t break the rules....it was theatre mistake to put down the curtains down before the scheduled time !!

                                                • Superdeluxeedition (a site that is usually just reviewing and informing about deluxe releases of older albums and new standard releases of legacy acts) announced that it will review "Madame X" tour (I don't recall ever reading another review of a concert in that site but I might be wrong on that, for sure it is not a usual occurrence). There was a small preview of the review that it didn't say much other than it is a review of the short version of the tour and that it can be best summed up by the word "memorable"
