A passionate review by lyricaljosh
Our forum member lyricaljosh had a pit ticket last night…
Here’s what happened.
Madison Square Garden. Madonna. Re-Invention. I will never forget it. I can
honestly say that it was the most amazing night of my life. If you’ve seen a
couple of my posts in our forums I was hesitant on going. I won the MTV pit
concert tickets and couldn’t decide if I should go. The airfare was going to be
$479 and to be honest, I had a lot of things going on this past week so I was
split down the middle. Although now, having seen Madonna this close I can’t
imagine even debating for one minute. I did go. I did sit in the pit. And I did
experience Madonna in a way that I never thought was possible.
I saw her three
feet away from me at times. I touched her hand twice as she reached out to the
pit. I made eye contact several times. Now there’s no question. I would have
sold my car to make it.

Madonna sang so effortlessly. She looked so beautiful. I don’t know what it was
about her but something just glows from her when you are watching her perform.
For as small as she is (which shocked me completely because she looks larger
than life on tv) she works so hard for two hours and you find yourself
wondering where she get her energy! I have to be honest, there was a moment in
the show where tears came down my face. When she first came up from the stage
and I saw the spotlight on her golden blonde hair, she looked over at the pit
and winked at all of us.
It was almost like she was privately saying “Here we
go, I’m about to rock this place, are you ready?” It was a moment I’ll never
forget. Before the lights all came on and the dancers arrived, she winked over
at us to let us know that she was here for the fans and that we were more than
welcome to be in the pit, on stage with her.
From the first song to the ending she danced and danced hard. Everytime she
went backstage I could see her talking to people and sometimes it was easy to
make out what she was saying. The Pit makes it so easy to see!
I noticed right
after she did Into the Groove she walked backstage and was talking to one of
the female dancers and I watcher her say “Wow, I am shot. Completely
exhausted.” But the moment she stepped back on stage her energy sky rocketed
I sat there in the pit and realized I had just witnessed a living legend. There
is a reason she is where she is today. It is no accident. Madonna is a the best
entertainer of our time. I watched the amazement on Gwyneth Paltrows face in
the front row. She was in awe. She knows it. Madonna is the best there is at
what she does.
In closing, I have to say this. I’ve seen millions upon millions of pictures of
Madonna. I’ve seen hours upon hours of video footage. I have gazed at her face
since I was seven years old. But to be right in front of her. To see that same
face in person. To see her deep blue eyes and flawless skin staring straight
back at me…was just simply breathtaking. I never thought it would happen but
I really did see her. She smiled and looked right at me, as she did other fans
in the pit. But for that four seconds where she was dancing right in front of
me and smiled right back to my face….I was on top of the world. That moment
will be forever in my mind. Thank you MTV. Thank you Madonna.
And thank you to
all the other MadonnaTribe forum members who urged me to drop everything to
go. My airfare for a round trip to NYC: $479. Seeing Madonna live and in the
