All Hail The Queen!
As Madonna wraps her second Rebel Heart Tour show at London’s O2 Arena treating her fans with an acoustic version of Drowned World/Substitute For Love as a tribute to her late friend David Collins and bringing on stage Stella McCartney as tonight’s Unapologetic Bitch, here’s a round-up of the fantastic review that the show has been having on the UK press.
And if you’re already in a Rebel Heart withdrawal (and you’ve got Madonna under your skin), here’s a message for you from Madonna’s page on Facebook:
Calling all Rebel Hearts with Madonna tattoo(s) for a chance to join Guy Oseary in London tomorrow! Even if you didn’t hear back from us, you are still welcome to show up tomorrow, we have had trouble reaching everyone with all your amazing Madonna ink!
Where: Studio 4
10B Blossom Street, London, E1 6PL
When: From Noon to 8pm GMT
See you tomorrow!
From The Times: Madonna goes in and out of fashion but one constant remains: her tenacity. Less than a year after being almost decapitated during the Brit awards when dancers yanked her cape and sent her flying backwards, Madonna returned to the O2 for a concert that proved that there’s nothing like a near-death experience to reinvigorate the Queen of Pop.
From The Guardian: Queen of pop returns to scene of cape-gate. From knob gags with Graham Norton to cages, trapezes and a ukulele True Blue, Madonna delivered a crowdpleasing set to mark World Aids Day in style.
From the BBC News: Madonna has put the painful memory of the Brit Awards behind her with a triumphant return to London’s O2 arena.
From the Evening Standard: This two-hour show makes you feel exhausted on her behalf.
From The Sun: Undisputed Queen of Pop wows the O2 with huge show.
From the Independent: It’s religion and rebellion as her Madgeness reminds us why she is such an enduring talent.
From Gay Times: While Rebel Heart may not be her best live show, it’s a timely reminder that she’s still the greatest living entertainer on the planet. Bitches.
From NME: On recent albums, Madonna has struggled to assert her continued musical relevance, but on stage she still works harder and delivers more thrills than her younger rivals. Nobody fucks with the queen? It’s hard to disagree.
