Madame X Tour | London

Recommended Posts

From Neil  @andifeel(ie: Madonna Tribe)  Let's hope we hear more soon from our members...,

9pm start 
11.20pm finish 

I bought the Polaroid. She was super sweet again. Although I couldn’t catch the last few sentences

Beer Bitch was Gwendoline from game of thrones and was hilarious. I don’t watch it so hopefully someone can tell people her surname. 

Very very lively show. She was in great spirits and toasted London. I had a few moments with her management after the Polaroid moment and they said they’re all going to be sad to leave town.

Aaaaaaaah I’m so excited for tomorrow :Madonna012:

Have a good time. Don't be too disappointed if your show is altered. Remember she's injured and she's trying hard to get through the tour.  Have fun!!

Anyone concerned about being in the Upper Circle, no need. Fantastic view and still felt close. I even looked from the back seats and I really wouldn't have minded. We were standing and dancing like it was the gold circle. A truly heart grabbing, jaw dropping, emotional experience

Oh god, u know when you come out and everything was like a blur ( same with exams tho lol ). Not religious but I feel so moved moment... I loved the build up with the band playing the old hits with everyone singing along, I loved everyone talking to each other as they didn't have mobiles to hide into, the set and lighting making you feel like you were in Portugal...I loved Frozen and turned to my friend and she was blubbing telling me it was a motherly thing...I loved Crazy ..Come Alive was magical, Like a Prayer -even tho I thought I,d had enough of that ....and it was the first time I rise affected me emotionally and when it did it hit me like a train. I loved her humour and a wit. She was funny, likeable and clearly in a cheeky mood....especially the banter with Gwendolyn. Am I going on?  When I thought about the £245 that cost me, you just can't put a price on that experience and think now I would have paid triple to have that feeling. I didn't want it to end. And to people who thought the set was cheap, I thought it was amazing. Felt like 3D and the projections were all around the sides and the ceiling of the theatre. I have never seen anything like this show before, bearing in mind I,ve been to every concert since Blonde Ambition. Mind blown!

Awwww, I loved every word and detail. Thank you so much for taking us there with you and in spirit too. Wonderful review!!!

My thoughts on the show last night! It's what everyone (read: no one) has been waiting for, the new kid on the forums with 3.5 posts under his belt is here to share his story! :Madonna054:

Pre-show 

We arrived at The London Palladium around 18.30 and there was already a long queue formed outside the theater. After only a minute or two they came to check our tickets while still in line and gave us our paper tickets. A minute after that a lady comes up to us and asks us if we were carrying any bags, we told her we weren't and she sent us right to the first security check, cutting a line of what felt like a 50-80 people. It felt correct. 

Me skipping the line: :Madonna030:

Everyone with a bag: :Madonna039:

The whole Yondr experience went surprisingly smooth. HUGE kudos to the people working at the Palladium and the Yondr ladies, they all worked very hard to make entering and leaving the theater as smooth as possible. As soon as we entered the Palladium we went straight to the bar which was practically empty, grabbed a glass of Champagne rosé (ding!) and watched as the place filled up for the next hour, it was a wonderfully Reading and fun start to the evening.

When showtime was nearing we headed to our seats and on our way we crossed paths with Tony and Aaron. It was nice seeing Tony up close, as he's a huge part of Madonna touring history. 

Taking a seat 

We were sat at the Royal balcony and we had a fantastic view of the stage, i couldn't believe how close it felt. When Madonnas pre-recorded message came on it all suddenly became so real: the show i've been waiting on for so many months was finally happening. This is my fifth time at a Madonna concert and before the show started one thing hit me: this is the first time i'm attending her show without having seen the whole thing on bootleg recordings beforehand. What a treat! It felt like a privilege to get to devour the experience without having to see it through the sea of a thousand phone screens. We were about to experience a place in time with Madonna that was exclusive to us as an audience. It felt intimate, it felt cozy, it felt special, it felt...like no other show i know of in 2020. 

Showtime

Shortly after her message, Ahlamalik took position and as i suspected: we were getting the whole show.

The typewriter intro is an amazing art piece in itself, it sets the tone and atmosphere for the rest of the show. The message of the James Baldwin quote is loud, clear and in need of being said out loud and repeated.

When Madonna comes on stage i completely fucking loose my entire collection of marbles as the endorphins rush through my brain. As does the lovely woman sat next to me who screamed out Madonnas name as if she were a teenage girl at a Beatles concert. What a treat it was to be seated next to another superfan like her. I wonder if she's on here (blond British woman on row F in Royal, if you read this - holler!)

The minimalist and scaled down staging made me feel closer to Madonna than i ever have before. It felt like i was attending a show in her living room. One reviewer described the show as "madonna bringing her huge arena show to the theater stage" and i honestly couldn't disagree more. Given how this is the closest she's ever been to her audience she could have easily chickened out and decided to hide behind a huge production. The fact that she did not made me realize how incredibly bold and brave of a move this show is for her. To top it all of she looks like she feels incredibly comfortable doing it.

In one way the show is very unlike anything Madonna has ever done, but in another it's more of Madonna than we've ever seen before.

The repeated message of artists being here to disturb the peace, to shake things up, to be radical and sometimes even make people uncomfortable makes me think of how unique of a performer Madonna really is. I can't think of any other current mainstream pop star who is as outspoken and uncensored as she has been throughout her entire career.

It was in the moments of her loosely choreographed almost drunken steps of  "Killers Who Are Partying" ,  the wild dancing and hugging her co-performers during Batuka and anthem like ending of Come Alive that i could see the passion she has for her record, her show, her art. 

As tattooed on her back during the MDNA tour the woman has NO FEAR. Sometimes it is easier to show your ass than your feeling. During yesterday's show her ass wasn't on display but her feelings sure were. 

Today I'm walking around town a proud life long fan with my new MX t-shirt on. 

 

Wow! I'm totally speechless. Wonderful, fun, emotional,and beautiful review. I love every detail and word. Thank you thank you so much. 💫🙏💃🕺🏼

Anyone remember the Gwendoline chat last night ? Here's what I remember...

* Gwendolin told M she loved her and she was amazing and had a total giggly fan moment

* M asked how many people she had killed and Gwendolin asked "in character or real life?". When she responded M said "yeah me too"

* M asked if she could borrow her knight costume from Game of Thrones and said Gwendolin could borrow her costumes but said she'd have to get it altered ..and that she hated her orhopedic shoes

*Gwendolin said something about "it's not the only thing that has made me wet" after sharing the beer

* M said her mouth was so dry she would take her spit
