“Hey Big Spender”
Madame X returned to The Chicago Theatre for the third tour show in Windy City.
Last night she was on stage at 11.05 PM and the performance ended a quarter before 2 in the morning.
Again no major alterations to the show – Madonna is more and more loose in her interaction and chatting with the audience, last night she sang a few words of Hey Big Spender during the Polaroid section – the selfie went for 4,000$ to Detox, the fab drag queen.
Dave from Toronto was the beer fan of the night. Madonna asked him how to get Chicago excited as it was a Monday night, Dave answered that she’s the Queen, it’s her job to get us excited!
When Dave told her he works in technology they laughed and Madonna said she could be talking to him about holidays in Tahiti or stripping rather than technology – and said let’s talk about something more interesting. Dave then quick as a flash asked Madonna – before she could ask him – “what’s your star sign?” (she usually asks the lucky fan this), which made her beam and break out of character for a moment. Well done, Dave!
When he told Madonna he lives in San Francisco she asked if he couldn’t wait for those shows, Dave replied “hell I can’t wait but I’ll see you at all the San Francisco shows too”.
Madonna looked around the faces in the front rows, spotted and pointed at Neil in the audience (he was sat with Dave) and gave him a cheeky shout “I know who you are!” – and poked out her tongue!
Tonight is a day off from the show, Madame X and her gang will be back at The Chicago Theatre on Wednesday, 23 October.
Thanks to Neil.
