Confessions Tour (night 1) - Chicago

Rebel Heart Tour (night 1) - Miami 

 

Was supposed to see Madame X Tour in Chicago but had to cancel due to injury. 

Just now reading thru this post & I have to ask seeing that you went to the first show in Detroit. This show was also supposedly filmed by HBO in case there was a problem the following night with the live broadcast & I have always wondered - did her hair look the same during this show (a damn mess!) or was it the usual straightened style she was sporting at this time. I think there were just a couple shows where she had the awful unkempt hair that she wore for the HBO show & I've only seen one supposed picture from the first night in Detroit. But from what I could tell she looked different the first night in Detroit? Please tell me anything you can I've always wondered!?!?

Reinvention, MSG NYC

Confessions Tour, Hartford, CT 1st night

Confessions Tour, Hartford, CT 2nd night

Sticky & Sweet Tour, MSG, NYC

Rebel Heart Tour, MSG, NYC

I think you're the only person on here that I've read actually got to see the Virgin Tour!?!? I can't tell you how jealous I am of that I would NEVER forget that one! It has always been a dream of mine to go back in time to either the first Seattle shows or any other early stop on the tour before she cut the bangs into her hair & experience it myself. That would def be my #1 choice above all others the Virgin Tour will always hold a special place in my heart for sure! I would LOVE to hear any memories you have of that if you wouldn't mind it fascinates me! I became a fan in 1989 with the LAP video & have loved her more & more as time goes by. I dream about the Virgin Tour & one day hope to do a deep dive book on it of some sort either chronicling each opening number outfit for every show or something along those lines. I can't get enough of it & have prob watched it over 1,000,000 times seriously LOL! Hope you can recollect what that experience was like for us here who would love to hear it!!!!

The first night her hair was straightened like all the previous shows. I don't know what possessed her to do that comb back style for the filmed show cause it looked awful. 

 

Here's a pic from night 1:

Thanks SO much for taking the time to verify this for me I've always wanted to know the truth & you were the first person I've ever seen that was at the exact show! BIG mistake for sure to not wear her hair like this she looked SOOO much better with the straight style VS. the comb back. I will always wish for another proshot DWT with ANY other hair style than the HBO show to surface someday as I LOVE LOVE LOVE the tour but seriously can't handle the hair for some reason it ruins the look for me (& this is one of my all time fave tour looks as well but with that hair it's a flat out NO! LOL!) Thanks again for the info I'm jealous of you for getting to see such a monumental moment in M history this show was AMAZING in its time! XOXOXO

It was dreamlike and unreal. I saw the famous opening outfit w/ jacket live! I remember it so well and running around the arena trying to take better seats (something you did as a young teen in the 80's)! I remember her humping her boom box and talking dirty lol. The whole place was vibrating with Madonna wannabes and it was everything you would expect it to be and much more. I bought her tour book and the next day everyone in the neighborhood couldn't wait to see it. And then a few moths later the Dress You Up video premiered and I went nuts because it brought it all back to life for me and the people I went with. I'm so lucky that I got to do that!

I just LOVE reading things like this & will always feel the same about this time! If only I were just a few years older I def would've been there! Thanks so much for sharing your story it makes me wonder if there are any other people here who attended the Virgin Tour who maybe just haven't seen this thread yet to respond? I may try to start a thread asking just that soon I'm very interested in hearing people's experiences at this tour! Cheers!! XOXOXO

About 20-22 times, I cant be bothered to work them out. :laughing: Almost everything starting with WTG. Of course not all dates around the world but the tours, mini shows and up for grabs. VT didnt come here and I was too young :( 

Theres some benefits of being a dinosaur but missing VT I guess was out of my hands, Id not even flown that young. grrrr  Id sue my parents but they arent here. Shouldve reported them for child cruelty.
