“How we were inspired by Madonna’s “Erotica” to host worldwide fan parties”
MadonnaTribe Team member Neil Symons tells Attitude magazine how he was inspired by Madonna’s Erotica when he started hosting the worldwide known Madonna Fan Party with our friend Sharon at the G-A-Y Basement Bar in London back in 2003.
Check out his story on Attitude.co.uk and remember, Madonna fans from all over the world will gather again on 21st October to celebrate 25 years of the Erotica album!
After the second [Girlie Show] night at Wembley Stadium, leaving alongside 72,000 other Madonna fans, the 15-year-old me wondered where all these people went after the show. I was sad that after two nights of unity and feeling – finally – that I belonged somewhere, that I would be headed back once again to an isolation.
It was that feeling that drove me, alongside my close friend Sharon, to start Madonna Fan Party and turn it into a regular, free event where Madonna fans could come from all over the world, dressed however they liked, on their own – and walk into a room full of other people, and for 8 hours feel like they just got home. And that’s what I think we’ve done.
