Is it worth drinking before hand to handle watching it?
it feels like a hallucination anyway so alcohol may make it worst. It's pretty much a one woman show in that costume 😂 she whips out the guitar which as you can imagine will thrill @ryan . 😂😂
That was a trippy watch. Thanks for the link! Loved the acoustic versions of the songs and her exit on the tricycle. I really was hoping she would fall off (prob a bit mean on my part). The guy who paid £10k for that chair 😮. I just hope he gave it a good clean before using it!
The Clown show started originally as a free show for her Australian fans, singing songs she wasn’t performing there on tour (she has only been to Australia on tour twice in almost 40 years). Then she did a charity version in Miami at a gala she held for her charity.
She has spoken about doing small shows for years now. It looks as if she’s doing 8 cities at roughly 1 month each. She’s spoken about attending house parties/bars in Portugal where people just sit around and play fado music - her instagram has videos of such evenings and I really think that’s the direction this show will go in:
As much as I love Madonna I'll probably give this a miss this time, unless the prices are reasonable which they probably won't.
I've seen Madonna live three times, her shows are such great fun and she's such a brilliant dancer that you forgive her for miming 90% of her vocals, which is fine because she can't sing really, and the few bits she does live they are usually painfully off key.
I don't think she can dance much anymore which is a pity so I'm not prepared to pay an astronomical amount for a ticket, but I'll make my decision when I see the ticket prices.
How unique to see this pop legend in an acoustic setting! Think the play 'Up for grabs' was the only other time she appeared in a West End theatre.
This was just a one off thing in Miami; not one of her tours. It is horrific. Not unlike ‘Up For Grabs’ which unsurprisingly was horrific also. It’s a shame that the reputation of her live shows is based on her fantastic ‘Who’s That Girl’ and ‘Blond Ambition’ tours rather than the diminishing quality of her subsequent shows. The MDNA one almost recaptured the excitement but I think that was more to do with being squished into an arena at 10.30pm with the air con switched off than what was going on onstage.
I'm hoping that the theatre setting will help her relax a bit. When we saw MDNA at Murrayfield we were treated to a rehearsal and soundcheck of pretty much the entire show as the stadium filled up, where she chatted with the crowd, went through most of the songs and generally looked like she was having fun. It was a very special thing to be part of. Capturing that more relaxed atmosphere would be a treat in itself! I remember Kylie's Anti Tour: a small venue, no costume changes, just Kylie, her band and tonnes of fun. I have loved all the huge productions Madonna has put on but I am looking forward to (hopefully) seeing her try something different.
