    There’s late and then there’s LATE. If she comes on within 90 mins of ticket time I can deal with that. However, if she’s 2-3 hours behind that really starts to detract from the overall experience.

    I'm a long time Madonna fan. I know she comes on late. I accept it as a fan and move on. However - As someone who works in the touring entertainment field, I have a behind-the-scenes insight that most don't. What really sucks is how this affects the blue-collar stagehands. They are compromised of a mostly local, union crew. They aren't traveling with her. They are just working a job locally. When she's being a diva and not coming on stage on time, they are forced to work longer hours than expected away from their families (though with double pay) to accommodate her being a brat and doing what she wants. That's disrespectful to the local stagehands who just want to do their job and go home. And NO - artists coming on hours late is not common place. Maybe some big name, unstoppable divas do it on occasion because they can (Beyonce, Prince, Mariah, etc.). But most artists can't and don't get away with doing it regularly. The fines for adding overtime pay to stagehands/ushers/security would bankrupt them and piss off their promoters. It eats into their profit. Quit excusing this bad behavior just because she can get away with it. I love her. I don't love this behavior.

    The Madonna apologists in this thread sicken me. Anyway she will come on late. Anyone expecting that to change completely is delusional.

  8. I don't think it's ok to start late, i've never experienced it with Madonna ( last i saw her was Sticky and Sweet 2nd leg at Bercy after seeing all previous tours and others and she cancelled on me for Madame X) but i would have been mad if she did. And it's already difficult when you're in your own town when this happens but when you're visiting just for her and don't know the place it could be scary. On top of it all I'm pretty sure she's someone who does not like to wait and people to be late when she has an appointment with them.

  10. Bless. She's had a lot of "tough love" the last few years and she seems genuinely humbled by the reaction.

  11. Aw that made my day. She seems a little in awe herself of how successful the tour sales have been. It’s rare to see her coming across this humble. LOVE to see her without grillz and the classic tooth gap. And a smile! She looks fantastic

    But concerts start late is simply not true in most cases. Most of us here go or have gone to different concerts from different artists along the years and, while a 10-15 minutes wait can be the usual thing, 1-2 hours is not what usually happens.

  14. Millions of streams = money for her and Warner (or Interscope/Universal with the 10's albums), with a back catalogue than wasn't even barely moving copies on physical media anymore or deleted for years (the old maxi singles, etc.). We don't know how much money exactly, but all the majors have good contracts with Spotify, meaning they even earn more than the independent or small label artists - which isn't a lot sadly in those cases. Surely she's making some good money from streaming since they (M's team, I mean) started taking it seriously back in 2020.

    That's all well and good if you are a stan, but the general public who don't follow her wouldn't realize that's how it goes lol That was the biggest issue here in Australia - I think it was Brisbane, there was no public transport once she finished, people had also booked babysitters and had to go to work on the Monday morning. That's not to say it was entirely Madonna's fault - it was Live Nation - they know the locals best and could have done that here. If she just put on the ticket, showtime 10:30pm - people who don't know that she never starts before this, can decide what they want to do.

  17. It's Madonna, my experience say --- expect quite a long wait until she goes on... plan for it... and do not make plans that include taking a train, bus etc. 10 minutes after the concert was supposed to end...

    I hope people do realize the start time at the venues will be for her opening act. So if your ticket says 8:30, that's when her opening act will take the stage. I don't expect Madonna to come out any earlier than 9:30 or 10:00 pm.

  20. I have no issue about her coming on late, start whenever you want - BUT be upfront about that on your tickets - if you want to start at 11pm - that's amazing - but say that on your ticket so that everyone is well informed and can make plans.

    It is so irksome to hear this continuing narrative around Madonna’s lack of “professionalism”. She is an absolute consummate professional on every level. She has performed countless shows despite having injuries, sickness and facing other adverse circumstances over the years in order to give her public what they paid for. She is not a product. She is a human being who has consistently shown superhuman stamina and strength. That’s how I choose to see her in any case…I try to remember that she is a dedicated mother who agreed to continue touring on her own terms; this idea that she deserves a terrible reputation for poor showmanship is unfair. We all know she was in agony throughout her last tour and in the midst of a deep emotional crisis the time before that. I have seen abbreviated shows. I have experienced long waits. It can be a bit boring when you attend a show alone if you’re a little introverted like me, but if you go with friends the entire experience can be socially enjoyable, even when you’ve been at the venue for three or four hours. As someone else pointed out, don’t get drunk or high before the concert starts because you may either lose your buzz or become too intoxicated by the time the show begins, making the experience a total dud. I know people who struggle with this, and they always blame the artist! Another basic tip…Make sure you eat and hydrate before going to the venue, and dress appropriately. Sometimes the venue can go from being freezing to hotter than hell! I saw Madame X at the Wiltern in LA and walked home to West Hollywood (5 miles…around 2 hours) at 1am as there was an Uber shortage. I didn’t let it ruin my experience. I made it a part of my experience. I put on my headphones and listened to the studio version of the songs in the setlist. I took in the surreal experience of going from a packed theater to the empty early morning streets of LA. I was vigilant, but deeply contemplative after witnessing an unusual show filled with subtleties I had not yet fully processed. My advice for anyone going to see this tour: Avoid expectation and you will adjust to the outcome in full appreciation of what you have seen and heard! It’s a privilege to get to see her live again, and I am determined to fully enjoy it.

  28. finally!!!! It's since I saw the video at the end of 1984 that I wanted to see the photos (I don't know how many times I paused the video recorder to be able to understand and see these photos),the same thing for the (fake) Italian newspaper GLOSS with her on the cover that can be seen on the newsstand.. This is PURE HEAVEN!

  29. Can you speak for yourself? For me it is the first time that I see a post that talks about this interesting and polarizing topic. There is no need to generalize. Not all of us have 2,000, 3,000 or 5,000 posts in this forum.

    M is a night owl so I totally get her being late - if people aren’t used to it after a decade then don’t go - simples millennials will spend most of their time on tiktok posting their usual narcissistic 30 second dancing twat videos - just make sure they’re phone has enough charge for the evening is all they will give a toss about - not the fact they are seeing one of the last great music icons we have …

  38. Not a fan of this shoot either. Doesn't feel like it offers anything new and I find the themes and costumes ridiculous. Too wax-worky if you can understand what I mean. Kind of like she's become a caricature of herself. If her face still moves, would be nice to see some actual expression. Even her eyes look vacant. It's like a mortician photographed her 🤪

    Oh not not again, not another Yelp thread with everyone complaining about how bad they were treated by the singing saleswoman and they missed the tube back home and they filed a suit because the ticket said 8pm and they had to wait it's such a disgrace call the manager.
