”I was lucky enough to make Madonna smile”
Our Triber mlvcr1 has had an incredible experience in Chicago before the second show of the re-Invention tour. Here’s the whole story told by our friend…
“Before the show tonight in Chicago, I saw Madonna pull up to the United Center. She pulled up in a black SUV with the window rolled down. As soon as I realized it was the Queen herself I started waving the shirt I had made for the concert which read “Esther Does It Better“. Within a matter of seconds she was gone. I did not think she had seen me or my shirt because she did not make any eye contact with me. So I waited a few minutes and then walked away.
I walked about 3 blocks when I heard someone yelling at me from behind. I turned around and noticed that it was the same woman who was in the same SUV with Madonna. She seemed relieved to have found me and caught up with me. She was running/speed walking in high heels and a mini skirt. She said, “Madonna wants your shirt! She was in a bad mood, and your shirt made her smile. So Madonna would like your shirt.”
I stood there handing my shirt over too her, not being able to say a single word. Luckily my best friend was able to do the talking for me. Madonna‘s personal assistant then gave me two freshly autographed promotional photos. This is my first autographed Madonna item, so you can imagine how excited I was! I gave her a hug, and as soon as she turned around to walk away I started crying like a big baby!
Later on while walking around the United Center, I ran into the security guard who was guarding the entry way before Madonna pulled up. He asked if “that lady had found me” I said she sure did. He then said that as soon as we left she came rushing out to find us. So I thank that Mr. security man for letting her know which way we went!
So I was not lucky enough to win pit tickets, and I was not lucky enough to catch the shirt she tossed out into the audience. But I was lucky enough to make Madonna smile!”
