Did anything unusual happen in a concert you've attended?

First time seeing Madonna in my life was at the MDNA Tour in Istanbul, Turkey - June 7th, 2012. I got early entry tickets, won two Golden Triangle wrist bands for my mom and me, at the show, my father and two brothers won the lottery with 3 bands into the Golden Triangle. We entered early and Madonna was still on stage after soundcheck, and everyone was screaming and she wasn't paying any attention, then they went silence for a second and I screamed MAAADOOOOOONNAAAA and she turns around at me and says "SSHHHHHHHH!" and the crowd went crazy, and then she proceeded to walk on the runways to check the screens and played Turn Up The Radio for us while we sang along and took distant selfies.

Shortly afterwards, she went inside and Guy Oseary came to the triangle triangle and we took photos with, then Offer Nissim did the opening act.

Later when the show started at 10:15 PM, it was epic. During Open Your Heart, people were sort of scattered in the triangle but they were away from the right side of the stage, and for some reason I was so close to the main stage on the right side, and I was extended my hand, then she sang "I think that you're afraid to look in my eyes" pointing at me and walking towards me, and then she sat on her knee and held my hand singing "you look a little sad boy I, I wonder why" and then moved forward. It felt so otherworldly, so heavenly, so dreamy and so damn personal, because it wasn't just a random touch among many, it's like she targeted me among everyone else and walked towards me. I still can't believe that happened. Then later when Rocco came on stage, she came back again to the same spot and she was dancing with him in front of me looking at me and I started crying when reality finally set in that what happened just happened.

Later she flashed her nipples for the very first time during Human Nature and the next morning every newspaper was talking about her. If that isn't an extraordinary experience, I don't know what is, and I'm eternally and immeasurably grateful for it.

In ''The Girlie Show Tour'' at Puerto Rico , she wiped the Puerto Rican flag on her crotch! https://todayinmadonnahistory.com/tag/puerto-rico/

Then when she came back to Puerto Rico for the Rebel Heart tour she was 3 hours late on both of her 2 dates! Show started at 11pm instead of 8pm! She also never apologized for the flag incident.

You mean on tour, right? Cause I kinda lost count on how many times we've seen her meaty nipples throughout the years :laughing:

S&S in Vienna: She chose 'Dress You Up' as a request song that night. It wasn't very popular in central Europe back in the 80s when M launched her career, so, fans stood there not knowing what was going on. She was really pissed because no one seemed to know the lyrics.


MDNA Tour Vienna 2012: She was late after the costume change before 'Express Yourself' and later that night before 'I'm Addicted' when she even started singing the opening words to both songs while still being under the/backstage.

Sorry for the poor quality (the other videos were muted)

this fan films down on the lift at the end of the golden triangle.

I love seeing videos like this. Ages ago I remember seeing one on YT where she had got ready for Vogue and it had started as she was running up the steps backstage ready to go on.

Re-invention Tour Toronto - 

M spoke before Crazy For You, I think it may be on YouTube... sniffing and going “aaaaahh good ol Canadian Air” - meaning it’s smelled like pot LOL. I know the girls behind me smoked up a few times during the opening and throughout the show. She also said she didn’t want to leave, that we should stage a protest “We could stay here all night and I could do ALL of my songs!” “And they can TRY to arrest me again!” I think that was her last show in Toronto

She also fell pretty bad in the catwalk during Music. All I remember hearing were gasps.

Such a memory.

In Paris Bercy for the Blond Ambition. On the last date, she kept having problems with her microphone. It started in Open your heart, where in the middle of the song she came to the edge of the stage on the right side with her back on us and a technician tried to fix the little box she had on her back. In Keep it together she was given a hand microphone that stopped working very quickly, so after a while she threw it back with anger in the space between the stage and us. Gaultier joined her on stage after Holiday. She was calling him and telling him to hurry up, she was talking in French and with a very good accent.

She flubs the words to an amazing rendition of "You'll See" DWT Philly. "True Blue" dedication to Debi Mazar and Sean Penn speech at Barclay's Center RHT Brooklyn.

I was at the Brooklyn show too! Kelly Ripa was there with Anderson Cooper and I had a clear view of her being wasted. She also gave that speech about how she questions the validity of marriage now (in a joking way). 

 

I also remember the huge ovation she got for "Ghosttown" that brought her to tears. One of my favorite live music moments.

RHT London: she was on time

MX Paris: video wall crashed during the Cap Verde interlude and she had to entertain the crowd for a few minutes 

London, haha, yes so unusual nowadays. For me it was also the MX Paris where everything stopped and she came out and apologised and sang 'can't help falling in love'. 

Also Confessions Tokyo final night, the dancers all came out in coloured wigs for one of the final numbers, Madonna looked surprised.
