You know, a Brazilian boy that came to Paris with a dream… and dreams come true!
When I came to Paris, I had two things in mind: know a different culture than the Brazilian one and see madonna live.
The first one, ok, I know French culture. The second one, well, I get tears in my eyes just on the thought of it.
I’ve been a Madonna fan ever since I was 10 years old. The first record I’ve bought was Erotica and the song that made me fall in love with her was Deeper And Deeper.
This week, a friend of mine bought the ticket for me and I finally put my hands on it yesterday. I thought I would faint! It has taken me ten years to finally have one of those babies.
It’s like, I’ve always dreamed of seeing Madonna in concert in all her glory. It is finally happening!
Paris is burning, so is my heart!
I’m finally getting a chance to see Madonna live for the first time..
I was not able to see her last tour, Drowned World, but I made sure that I saw her this time around by purchasing a V.I.P. platinum package.
I’m pretty sure that it will be worth the money and the wait. She may be “re-inventing” her big hits but she is still an icon to me, I’m estatic and cannot wait to see her! I hope everyone who is a big fan and who wanted to attend the show was able to get some tickets.
I was 20 when I saw Madonna in concert at the SkyDome in Toronto, Canada, on May 29, 1990 during the Blond Ambition World Tour.
What an experience !!!!!!! This was also the infamous concert which the Metro Toronto Police wanted to arrest Madonna for simulating sex onstage. I hadn’t heard about it until the next morning when I watched the Toronto news and found out what had happened backstage.
It was an INCREDIBLE concert !!!! The Blond Ambition Tour was the BEST tour of her entire career!!!!
Ok. So Madonna‘s touring, and who knows if she’ll ever do this again anytime soon. So I got excellent seats for the 1st night in New York through the ICON fan club.
So every year, through every Madonna Album, Song, Video, Movie, Book, Appearance, my obsession grows. So now I’ve become one of those fans who has to go to all of her shows in my area. I’ve managed to get tickets for every single night in NYC. I was contemplating getting a ticket for NJ, but decided against it (can you believe that?…me neither). But for 4 of the 6 nights, I got cheap seats at the tippy top of the arena for $60 bucks. I won’t be close to Madonna, but I’ll be closer to GOD. I guess that’s the NEXT BEST THING. Get it? HA!
So I’m so looking forward to screaming my lungs out and passing out if and when she sings BORDERLINE. That is my all time favorite Madonna song. Keep 911 on speed dial in your cell phones. If you see a crazy fan cry and then pass out…that’ll be me.
I am Peruvian but I live in France, I am very happy ’cause I got my ticket, category1, for the second night in Paris.
It would be the first time ever.
I was sixteen, and had been a huge fan of Madonna since age eleven. I bought two tickets in a state of great excitement, and persuaded a guy from work to come with me. I lived on the Isle of Wight at the time, and had never been to a big concert before, so had no idea what to expect. We travelled to Wembley by coach, then waited for hours to get in . We could hear the sound check as we waited, and people started screaming. I vividly remember being agog at all the girls who were dressed up in black lace and beads.
When we got into the stadium we had more hours of waiting. A madonna look alike appeared in one of the private boxes, and everyone went crazy. Technotronic were the support act, and weren’t very good.
Naturally I enjoyed the concert with every fibre of my being. I was enthralled from the very first moment I clapped eyes on her. I sang every word to every song and danced my little heart out. It was the best experience at a gig I have ever had. I was depressed for weeks afterwards, life was such an anti climax after that! I’m a bit more grown up now 🙂

It all began with the ticket process. An arduous process on many levels which I approached with perhaps one of the most unique and eccentric campaigns ever to be seen in the Madonna “ticket buying fan community”. Having never been fortunate enough to see Madonna on tour earlier, I decided that due to current circumstances the forthcoming “circus of ticketing” for the show would prove to be quite intimidating to me. However, never being someone who hides from things that are new or intimidating, I viewed it as yet another challenge. So, what did I do? As an ICON member of only one year I sat down in my little chair here in the garden state, and idealised a campain aimed at aquiring a single ticket for the show here in New York City. Having experienced my first true broken heart and a seemingly persistant black cloud that has continued to follow me, I came upon the concept of literally offering myself as a date for one lucky man (or woman… 😉 t o show me that true romance still exists in this world and bring me along as their date to one of the New York City shows. Of course many laughed, of course many raised eyebrows, but what was the most suprising thing was how many members within the Madonna fan community welcomed this strange yet hopeful concept as fresh, edgy, and even quite PT Barnum Like. So, after a few days of an open post “AN HOPELESS ROMANTICS OUT THERE WISHING TO TAKE THIS NJ GAL AND INTERNET PERSONALITY TO HER FIRST MADGE SHOW IN NYC, LET ME HEAR FORM YOU”, I was ambushed with offers from around the world. Ironically however, they were people offering a laugh and a smile that they got from reading about my very interesting proposal in terms of getting a Madonna seat for her upcoming tour.
Although this story may not have ended as I first set out to do, I did eventually obtain a ticket on JUNE 20th at Madison Square Garden in New York after hours upon hours of ticketmaster tiny clock hands tick, tick, ticking by slowly. Then, those little red words appeared on my small temporarily granted IMAC computer, “Congratulations, there are seats for you located in Row L, Section 7…
