A brilliant night
Thanks to M-Tribe reader Amy for this report from last night’s “Confessions” at Wembley Arena.
“After reading the press reviews over the last few weeks I was wondering what it was actually going to be like. After reading the reviews that other tribers had done I thought well they are true Madge fans, so obviously the press had just got it all wrong. What can I say it was a brillant night.
The atmosphere really started to buzz at about 8.30pm. A man over the other side of the arena to us started off Mexican waves and was getting people to stamp their feet and clap. At about 8.50pm the lights started to dim, then at about 8.55pm all the lights dimmed and I thought OMG were going to see Madge in a minute. I was so excited and could not believe that the time had actually come.

It all started with Future Lovers, this was amazing. As the disco ball started to open up their she was singing, all dressed in black. I could not believe that I was their. To be fair Madonna done all of the songs really well, apart from Let It Will Be. She really done the Confessions On A Dancefllor album justice. Live To Tell the crucifix. It was amazing, as it eleavated up towards the audience their she was with her thorns on her head. She done my 3 favourite songs off Confessions, Sorry and Get Together. Isaac was given alot of justice with Isaac singing and playing the horn (don’t know if thats what it is called).
During the concert she communicated with the crowd on several occassions which was ace, getting us to join in and hyping us up even more. She even mentioned about the air conditioning and how hot it was without it on, but the lucky bugger at one point had a fan on her, how unfair!
The finale saw the arena get turned into one big dancefloor and disco. The cape which she has on during Hung Up was amazing with the flashing lights. Even though it was the last song she really hyped up the audience. Then unfortunateley it came to an end. The lights went down, everyone went quiet, you could feel the buzz had gone. not many people moving and just wondering will she, wont she come back on, even though we knew that there wasn’t going to be an encore. Then all of a sudden of the screen came up ‘Have you confessed?’ Then the lights came up and everyone stared to go.
Even though we paid £110 each for out tickets it was worth every penny. For a 47 year old, coming on 48 she is still full of energy and gives a good show. Despite the press reviews, just ignore them they are a load of rubbish. If you are a true Madonna fan then like I did you will just forget about them and think ‘Tour only jealous because you are not going to see her.’ I can’t wait for the next tour, bring it on Madonna.
Thanks for a good night Madge, it was brill.”
