    I might be a little drunk from the VIP experience, but I need to post something. 1) I had my first meeting with someone from Infinity, @Mattyyou are a great guy! By chance we were sitting close and we met by chance. Keep it together in the family! It's true that when you see the show with friends it's totally dIfferent! I sat at the table with Israel and a gurl from Norway, and during Killers on the line "I'll be a woman etc" M took her end and didn't ket go. A very touching moment, also because I knew her! 2) The view today was so much better and I had the chance to appreciate everything more. I have to say that Vogue was still a good beginning. I liked her attitute tonight. 3) I can tell you that in all the forthcoming shows the first three songs will be cut in the second show. We knew already and when we dud tge backstage tour the set was ready fir Vogue. 4) She said that Gaspar with his hair reminded her of Art Garfunkel, she didn't sing the song but said "be prepared, it's one of those shows". The rest is history, no beer bitch (pity, I was sitting exactly there), but Sound of silence. After that she gave her red fan to a fan who was dressed as a S&M Madame X, cannot descrube better. 5) Not of great quality, but I recorded the whole show and will be sharing! I hope @Fightercan make it sound better...

  3. My provocative questions to Kevin Antunes during the backstage tour and his politically correct answers: 1. You rehearsed many songs, we saw it on IG, why was Easy Ride rejected? = We always rehearse many songs but it's difficult to create a setlist, for instance Rescue me in full wasn't working when placed inside the show, too long. 2. Why don't you do surprise songs like in RHT? The fado section would be perfect for that. = The musicians are always changing positions backstage and onstage and it would be difficult. Also, we don't have a drummer. 3. You don't have a bass player either! = I play the bass (plays samples on keyboards) He played for us Vogue, the typewriter, the TOAC sounds and also the bass line of the Into the groove remix, saying he would have loved to do that.

  4. I recorded both London nights but I don’t think the recording is very good it keeps dipping in sound for some reason and I had my phone kept on the floor pointing up. Anyway when I get back home and sorted I will see if @Fightercould maybe rescue them please and we will share here. Thank you @Enricofor recording last nights hopefully yours is better than mine

    So a few more thoughts about Wednesday’s show. The warm up band which are part of the main show band are incredible, definitely worth seeing. I’d love her to work with them after the tour for a few shows of her back catalogue performed just with those four musicians For anyone going to future London shows, you’ll need to be in your seat for 8.00 to catch them. We got to the venue around 7.20 and were in our seats before 8.00 which includes time spent queuing for merchandise and a pre-show pee. The show is incredible, I loved how imaginative it was and the way different moods were created just with lighting, projections and moveable staircases The way the projections incorporated the walls and ceiling of the theatre and not just the stage was really impressive The audience and atmosphere were top notch, it seems the people moaning about the late start are mostly people who weren’t there. i can’t wait for next Wednesday which will be my second show, provided M doesn’t cancel.

    Ricardo filmed the whole "there are two types of shows" speech, I wonder if he's going to post it. In a very provocative attitude, she also cut the "Lisbon speech". She said : You're having a Readers Digest version. They tell me I talk too much. Lets make it short. My son loves soccer. We went to Lisbon. I made a record. I met Celeste Rodriguez and her grandson.

    One last thing before I say goodnight. She dedicated Fado Pechincha to two people who left their seats during the song. She also kept complaining about the door of the back of the stalls opening and closing continuously and distracting her!

  10. Exactly. Ill say it a million times, when she wants to she can really knock if out of the park. Don’t forget, RIT she either sang fully live, or mimed. There was no singing over backing tracks, it was either a case of moving her mouth to a track or singing Live as a loud clear voice... and she delivered every single time. I want that Madonna back, and that was probably one of her least physical tours.

    The thing is though, that attitude towards fans is vulgar, if she literally said ‘shut the fuck up’. She should be refunding them the difference realistically. If the show is altered because of health issues, there’s absolutely nothing to stop her adding in two or three proper acoustic or stand still songs to make up for the deficit. They’re fully rehearsed and ready to go. And no, acapella parts of old singles or acapella covers of other people’s songs don’t count as performances LOL If the first three songs are so detrimental to her health, why not permanently drop them from every show and create space for the aforementioned rehearsed acoustic songs in the Fado section or before Frozen? Fightong against a curfew and tardiness just isn’t something you expect of a 61 year old woman with a brilliant professional reputation as a punctual performer until relatively recently. thats my thoughts anyway, I’m sure many will disagree x

  12. Its unfair to say that only madonna has her private things going on. The people who work there have their private things too. So it aint only madonna. Nobody wants to work a minute longer because of somebody’s tardiness. Certainly not me. Not for Madonna, rihanna, beyonce or obama. They’re not paying my bills. We close at 11 so get the f out because i want to clock out and go home! So whoever did that, did the right thing. Ain’t nobody got time for diva problems. You don’t go to work, to your boss with this attitude. When you have a big presentation at work, you make sure to be on time. If you’re late, its your fault. You don’t holla censorship to your boss, do you? No hate but some of y’all fans accepting things that are not ok just because it’s Madonna. But if it was your colleague, yall wouldve send a 10 letter page complaint to your boss, the mayor, lawyers, the insurance company... Just keep it 100. Her behavior was not ok and fans have the right to complain about it.

    So we have (roughly said) 4 different versions of the show: Super deluxe (extended with bonus tracks and interactive elements) Deluxe (full length without bonus tracks but some interactive elements) Standard (cropped edition) Surprise edition (Like it or not) I'd like to know how the tour would have developed if Madonna hadn't had any health issues. Presumably it wouldn't have changed much after the US leg, apart from a few small surprises.

  15. What would we do without this gem? Madonna had a message to sing and a perfect one to end the Girlie Show. What's more, all she needed was a raggy pair of jean shorts and a sports top to do it in. I love her short pixie ...and her black leather bra and boots too. Let the music take you ("down below") in celebrating this performance. Thanks to @Levonfor bringing up this performance in another thread.

    1 Intro - doesn't count as a song. 2 god control - cut 3 dark ballet - cut 4 human nature - cut 5 express yourself / speech - doesn't count, acapella blast one verse & chorus that she still sometimes does during the Polaroid section 6 papa don't preach / speech - was a quick verse and chorus blast purely for America in response to the pro-choice debates. Never performed in Europe 7 sodade (missing intro on welcome to my fado club too) - Was cut half way through America, and only performed in Lisbon twice. Never part of the London setlist. 8 crave - only performed in Lisbon twice. Never part of the London setlist.

    The only thing that pisses me off about her attitude is, she knew all along she had a curfew when she signed the contract with the venue, she has been through this time and time again. Her arrogance only hurts her fans, who miss out on elements of the show because she is too stubborn. Just like she tells fans to stay home, maybe she needs to only perform in places where she can do whatever she wants. Just like people keep saying "you know she starts late, just shut up and accept it" I'd say to Madonna "you knew there was a curfew just shut up and deal" It isn't as if she had no idea about a curfew and they just dropped it on her without warning. She can fight all she wants with the venue, but again the ones in the middle of it, her fans, are suffering as a result and she doesn't seem to give a fuck about it, she is only concerned with herself and what she wants. On top of that, she is totally disrespectful to the staff at these venues who should not be forced to work late because of her "art". Oddly enough she seems more and more entitled than ever before.

  21. Yes she sang the sound of silence you could tell she was still pissed about last night mentioning a few times that she was against the clock, American life she didn’t do the full rap she screamed I’m assuming this is her way of getting out her frustrations. She said she was not only a performer or a pop star but a story teller and it’s hard to tell a story when you’ve got a stop watch against you. She said people need to stop complaining about the change of show on the 2nd night it’s either no show or altered show we all know she has an injury so people need to shut the fuck up.

  28. Yes, it's one of my most favorite performances ever. Everybody innocently and carelessly dissolves the erotic and artistic tension of the show and her sweet smile at the beginning is one of the most memorable moments ever. She looked so cute!

  29. You forget the fifth one: CANCELLED. After all, about a month ago many members here was saying/hoping/suggesting she should stop the tour, it felt so bad reading the firum every day, so I think these London shows are a PRIVILEGE. Despite all my criticism, I am happy to be able to attend. I feel as we're getting closer to the end, she is starting to try new things. Cross fingers she will keep doing it!

  42. Well by the sounds of her mood, it seems like the owner of the theatre (Andrew Lloyd Webber) hasn't admonished the theatre staff. They probably were on tender hooks as well when he showed up. I was surprised by the later start last night as I thought she would have pulled it out bag like the first night as he was in the audience. I was discussing it with one of my friends today who produces/directs theatre productions and she said while she understands this is a Madonna theatre show and not a West End theatre show, even she would be itching to know what the delay was because you're lucky to get 5 minutes past the scheduled start time. Perhaps Andrew Lloyd Webber who must be so used to theatre shows starting on time was perplexed by it. Who knows. I do have a little bit of empathy for Madonna. As a person, I 9 times out of 10 am constantly running late (usually nights out, but a couple of times for work...) I haven't reached the superior stage though of saying to my boss to shut the fuck up, either I do some work or no work. Would be fab! I remember talking to one of the general managers at RHT in Glasgow when they put the lights on and implemented curfew and she said that they had given Madonna an extra 40 minute grace period but as the time was approaching midnight and she had just finished Unapologetic Bitch, they had to implement the curfew because she said the fact they had let her run so late on a Sunday night meant they were likely to get a heavy fine. Although I seem to recall it came out afterwards that Glasgow Council were so happy to have someone as huge as Madonna play Glasgow, Scotland that they waived the fine to the arena.

    Exactly. Not many will get the irony. At the end of the day if she is making a point of shortening every second show, she should do a pro-rata style percentage refund on all tickets for all day 2 affected shows, because it’s seriously unfair. I was considering going today and had the ticket in my basket (not the best, row M), but for £455 I’m glad I didn’t bother now. Roll on the next proper arena or stadium tour... I’m so interested to see what happens when this whole strange era is over.
