I was surprised at how easily we got into the place and we were seated at 20h15, great seats, great view, and the best was the smoke machines were already setting the scene on stage, the lights went out, the next thing, the most amazing bank of video screens lit up and the band appeared from the floor of the stage, the video rig started lifting and there she was, on a hydraulic ramp. I must say, it all got a bit blurry for a while because I had tears in my eyes.
My favourite scene, I say scene because I saw it more as a series of acts than a concert was the oriental scene, starting with the dancers bound from ropes hanging from the ceiling, and ending with a ‘Crouching Tiger’ style fight scene with Madge and dancers in suspension rigs.
Wayne put it in to words well saying, she starts her show at a level where others end theirs. Her first song would be someone else’s finale.
I loved the Madonna concert.
