NYC – Show #Two
Madonna took the stage of the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House for the second show of her Madame X Tour last night.
The show started at around the same time of the opening night, although this time fans were warned by a Ticketmaster mailout that it would not begin before 10 PM.
No changes in the setlist to be reported, and this time it was Andy Cohen to buy the Polaroid selfie from Madonna for 500$ – a skit that it’s taking the shape of what the Unapologetic Bitch moment was during the Rebel Heart Tour.
Last night’s show was a Citi Sound Vault Event, so fans who pay attention to details may have enjoyed the slight changes in the decoration of the non-performance spaces of the area, including big customized billboards and a unique backdrop for selfies in the VIP area.
The audience was a lot more relaxed tonight but this also means that many were not standing during the most of the slower songs.
The venue security is learning to deal with some fans repeatedly trying to push to the front row and we encourage everyone to stay in their allocated seat and remind others to do the same for the best possible experience.
Madonna will be on stage again tonight – 19 September – for the third concert of the tour. This also marks the first time in a while she plays three dates in a row – something that was uncommon on her past tours but will happen frequently this year.
The Icon Celebration is in place again for this show – again fans have been asked to send a selfie while forming an “X” with their fingers. Make sure to check out madonna.com for the the upcoming dates.
Tonight’s show will also be the one where the press is invited – so expect more reports and hopefully more images and some professional footage coming up tomorrow morning.
