Madonna vs The Palladium : The Sequel
Madame X was not in the mood for shit last night! Animated, defiant, humorous and just ever so slightly pissed off about the night before, this was another show to remember.
Instead of the beer chat, Madonna performed The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel, and more recently covered by Bananarama.
During an abridged Polaroid selfie sale – to a person Madonna called “Arek” – she referenced last night and wondered if tonight she would be escorted off in handcuffs!
She also had some words to complaining fans online (most of whom aren’t at the shows) who have been complaining about there being two versions of the show, and don’t want to accept that Madonna is suffering two injuries and things have had to change.
Yes, there are two versions of my show. As if you didn’t know, I am suffering very badly from injuries, so your choices are a slightly shorter show or no show. What would make you fucking happy? Any bitches complaining can kiss my ass.
The audience roared “show” obviously, to a deafening roar.
MadonnaTribe reported this was the reasons for the show with three less songs last week (not 5,6 or even 8 as exaggerated online) however a handful of fans have started their own conspiracy theories, so it was great to have the official word.
Another official word was regarding last night, where venue security reconfirmed what Tribe reported : the curfew is 11 PM, with a grace period of 15 minutes, to 11.15 PM, hence why Madonna has often finished her show between 11 and 11.15 in her Palladium run so far. For reasons unknown, the grace period was not fully permitted on Wednesday night. We can only speculate why, or perhaps we rise above it and can move on.
Other highlights of a fast paced action packed show:
American Life took the brunt of Madonna’s pent up energy – rather than complete the rap she screamed and the placed screamed with her.
In her usual spiel before the Fado song with Gaspar, Madonna commented that as well as being a singer and artist, she was a storyteller, and it was hard to tell stories against a stopwatch! So she gave a bullet pointed version of the story very quickly.
