I could sing ALL of my songs! We could spend the night together.
Chimad, a member of
MadonnaTribe’s forum had the chance to be in the pit last night. Here’s what he has to say about the Chicago July 15 show. From our Tour News Forum:
“Words are useless in describing the experience I had in the pit at last night’s show. I don’t even know where to begin or what to say. I could say everthing that’s been said before, about how great this tour is, how amazing she looks, how great she sounds, etc…but what I really want to say is this:
Seeing Madonna up close, doing what she loves with a BIG smile on her face, watching her interact with her fans, watching her work so hard, seeing the sweat drip off of her forehead, watching a legend who has come to this point after 20 years of dedication to her art, dedication to challenging herself, experimenting with her music, so publicly dealing with all of the issues in her life.
Seeing all of the things that have made her the icon that she is up close, first hand is nothing short of the biggest sense of INSPIRATION that I have ever experienced. As music can be such an inspiration for Madonna, Madonna can be such an inspiration for me. She works. She works hard. And she works hard doing what she loves. Being in the pit, seeing her perform…it’s obvious that she loves the stage, her fans, and most of all, her music. You can see it in her eyes as she sings, especially during Mother/Father and Nothing Fails. You can see the emotion pouring out of her. She is so powerful yet so vulnerable all at the same time. She is human. She has feelings.
And she’s not going to stop doing what she loves. She said it best, last night in Chicago after Papa Don’t Preach…
“I could stand here all night. I could sing ALL of my songs! We could spend the night together. Do you want me to leave? (Crowd: “NO!!!”) Well I’m not going anywhere. I am the QUEEN, right?”
And the arena went crazy. And I really believe, for the first time, that she’s not going anywhere. That she really does love what she does, and she loves to give.
Thank you, Madonna. (Oh, and thanks to Monte for the guitar pick…now I have a reason to actually learn to play!)
Special thanks to chimad for sharing his story with MadonnaTribe, where the Tribe adores the Idol
