The Most Dedicated Core Of Fans
This coming Sunday we will be premiering the second part of our interview with Peter Morse, the lighting designer and lighting director who brings us behind the scenes of four Madonna world tours.
Here’s a preview from this second part of the interview in which we ask Mr Morse, who has been on the road many times with Madonna and other artists, what he thinks about Madonna fans. The answer really makes us proud.
MadonnaTribe: So you had the chance to “experience” Madonna fans in many concerts…
Peter Morse: Well the best thing about her fans is that the event of the Madonna concert begins the moment the doors open. I think the entertainment begins the minute the doors open because she has some fans that are so die hard that it’s a show in itself when they come in and of course the energy begins, again, the moment the doors open and it doesn’t end until the last person leaves the building.
I can’t say enough about it. Madonna shows are 100% as far as energy but you have another 100% over that with the fans. It’s unlike any other shows I’ve ever worked on, I mean I’ve done Michael Jackson and many more but Madonna has the most dedicated core of fans that know her music inside out and want to be surprised, yet never are because no matter what she does to surprise them they expect it. They go right along with her, they take the ride right with her, it’s just wonderful.
And you know it’s interesting because with Drowned World we were on the road a week and there were people in different countries coming in and they knew what to look for. The word was out and some of them just traveled through Europe to see the show every night. The most dedicated group of fans I’ve ever seen and those who aren’t dedicated but are just casual fans who come to see the show when it’s in their area… They have that same energy.
